IN ALL WAYS, ACKNOWLEDGE HIM
MAY – 2013
WE WILL PRAY AND SERVE
(Matthew 10: 40-42)
Again we are so thankful and privileged to serve with you here in Sicily in expanding His Kingdom.
May started with Giuseppe still on meds for bronchitis, we are grateful to God that now he is doing much better and no more medicine is required. Praise the Lord.
With the help of some believers we are helping a local pastor in building him a lean to shed at his house.
At the same time we are holding the Italian men’s study at his house too. It is great to see the willingness of these believers to want to grow and to encourage them to share their faith in their community and to lend a helping hand when needed.
We are still collecting clothes and food for the needy and this allows us to share the Word.
The singles group that Giuseppe ministers alongside with a brother from Texas is growing too. This past Tuesday they met at our house for a meal and study, again we see God’s hands at work in these young men’s lives.
Recently we received a blessing from a believer from Belgium. She had contacted Betsy at the IFC office and shared that she had a place she wanted believers to be able to use. Betsy shared with us this news, she has given us the use of her apartment in the town of Cefalu’ for a year where we can relax and regain strength and refuel. It is a two hour drive from Belpasso. This has been a welcomed gift so we can allow ourselves to get away and spend some time resting and precious time with the Lord. By the way if you come and visit the apartment is available to you too. This because you prayed.
Today after the market in Belpasso we were asked to visit another town where we could share the Word, 25 km from our place. Our harvest is great, but the workers and resources are few. Please continue to pray for us and for more partners that will come alongside with us here during a difficult economy.
We send our love to you and His blessing. Partners because of Him. Ciao!
Let’s go fishing (really) for souls,
