Tomorrow we will be having our first wedding in our new church.
The groom, Luca, grew up in our church and is one of my first “Timothys”.
Pray for the many unbelievers who will be attending their first evangelical wedding, will hear the gospel, will be strategically seated near Christians from our church who are committed to sharing Christ with them.
The last weekend in September we will be doing our first youth retreat, to prepare our youth to re-enter the daily routines of the school year.
Pray for our guest speaker, Ken Rudolph and his wife Jinner, who will be communicating to the young people.
Pray for the development of the student ministry in our church. We are starting to develop leaders from within the group. As with all changes, there are a lot of growing pains with thus process. Pray for wisdom and courage to do the right things regardless of how popular the decisions are.
Third First (It’s starting to sound like the name of a bank!)
The third first is from October 10th through the 14th. We will be serving in a national conference for church leaders, right here, in Perugia.
Lucio will be one of the preachers, as well as Johnny Gravino, director of the Italian Theological Academy, along with main speakers Dr. John MacArthur and Jeff Williams, the Christian astronaut. The theme is: Soli Deo Gloria.
We will also be in charge of the worship time and helping out in different areas, such as translation.
Please pray for the preparation and planning, as well as that the messages will touch many lives.
Pray that Christians can be united around the truth of God’s word and worship from their hearts.
Thank you for your prayers! Jon and Melodee and Noah
