I don’t know about you, but I get slightly nervous whenever I hear those words… “Oh boy, what am I getting myself into now?”

How about, if instead, I said: “Help me help you!” That has a better ring to it.
You see, in less than a month we sail across the ocean blue toward the great US of A (How many clichés can I use in one sentence?).

Can you believe it? We have not visited our friends, family and supporters of the east states of America since 2017! Time flies when you are serving the Lord!!

We look forward to being with you in person to share with you God’s many blessings as well as some of the challenges of serving in a post-Covid Italy.

So much has happened in this time, that we risk having a presentation that is too long and yet still not answer all your questions. So, please help us by answering the following questions:
What would you like to know about our last term in Italy?
What would you like to see more of in our presentation?

While you think about that, here are a few things you can pray for as we get ready to leave:

Top Ten Prayer Requests for Furlough Preparation:

1. Wrap things up here in Italy
– Finish up our ministry responsibilities

2. Furlough PowerPoint (see request above)

3. Furlough Sermon

4. Display Preparations: Prayer Cards, Banner(?).
