‘I heartily commend this excellent account by Dr Tim Grass of my former senior missionaries and colleagues Ernest and Gertrude Trenchard. Their love for the Spanish people and culture and their dedication to the spread of the gospel made a significant and lasting impact on several generations of evangelicals, which has spread to other Spanish-speaking countries through Ernest´s many published works.’

Terry Wickham, who joined the Trenchards in 1958 and continues with others to develop their work through Bible teaching and publications.
