Ciao a tutti! Thanks for keep praying for us and the ministry here in Italy! We had a good and refreshing time away, and we were able to reenergise and relax. July has been extremely hot here, temperature ranged between 95 and 110 for about the whole month. Things slow down as lots of people during July and August are away for vacation, but this will give us time to organise and plan for September through next June.
- We together with a couple of other members in church started a group called A-Team (action team) to help the church in reaching the community, using business as missions and have a vision for planting churches. Pray that we will communicate and plan well while listening to God's lead as we move forward with the church.
- The Discovery Bible Study with Valentina and Montse are continuing very well. We are asking you prayers specifically for Montse. She is searching in her everyday life for signs that God is leading her. She is counting life events and situation no more like coincidences, but she is starting to look at them as God is directing her life. Pray that her heart can continue to be soften and that she will finally surrender her life to Jesus.
- I'm personally leading the church in a 4 week series about being a church founded in the Gospel. We are looking at 4 elements of a biblical church: being a loving family, making disciples that will disciple other, sharing the Good News boldly and being a Christ-centered gathering that meets regularly to worship God. Please pray that this truths can be received and put in practice from all of us.
Thanks for praying and God Bless!
