Ready for the USA

Hey everyone!  Hope you are well and getting excited for summer.  We are prepping for our home leave in the States.  We leave Italy on the 5th of July and will be returning on the 28th of August.  We will be in New York, North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida.   We'd love to see you, so if you'd like to get together please email us.  It would be really nice to sit face to face and share what God has been doing in our lives and hear what He's been doing in yours.  We will be sending out info for any events or gatherings that we will be having when we are in town.    Right now we'd like to share some praises and prayer requests.  Please scroll down to view!

Big Praise: On Saturday June 9th.  We celebrated Jesus and His incredible love and sacrifice.  Three individuals from our church community declared their love for Him and their desire to have Him as King of their lives.  They were baptised at sunset while a storm rolled in and God gave us a sky to remind us of His amazing power and beauty.

Another praise:  On May 26th we held our annual women's tea party in our neighbourhood lawn.  It was filled with color and beauty, laughter and smiles.  Each year the women who participate are so grateful for such a special afternoon.  One lady commented and said that the company and atmosphere was so pleasant that she felt like angels where hovering over!  We gave a gift to each women that was a large magnet to put on the refrigerator.  I explained that each morning they could see it and remember that in all things, the wonderful and the hard, God is in whom we find true Joy.  I can't wait until next year to continue this tradition and see God move.

Praise and prayer request: This is our neighbour Vito.  He has been a great joy to our family.  He lost his wife last year and he really loves having our company.  For a some time now he insists on making us lunch and it has been so nice to spend an afternoon with him each week.  We praise God for our relationship and ask that you could please pray for His salvation.

Summer Camp starts tomorrow!  Please pray for the children and their families.  Pray that we'd have the energy and strength to manage these next two weeks while prepping for our trip to the US.  Pray for our two teams coming to help.  We have one from Port City Community Church, NC, one from Emmaus Church, TX and one from Delta Church , IL.  Pray that they would have many opportunities to share their faith with their host families and pray that hearts would be softened.

Please Pray for our adoption.  We are sensing that God is closing the door for us to adopt from Nicaragua.  This is a very sad thing.  It's not easy to give up something you've been praying for and longing for, for so long.  It has been a long and hard road, but we know that God uses everything and nothing is in vain when He is doing something.  Pray for Nicaragua.  The country is in complete unrest and there has been so much violence and tragedy.  Adoptions are pretty much on hold for an undetermined amount of time.  Our hearts break to think of the orphans that are also affected by the countries difficult times.  This is only one of the reasons why we feel God closing the door, but lets just say it was the last drop for us.  We are praying about changing paths.  We've talked with our agent and we could possibly change countries without losing  all our money and documents.  The other country that our agent works with and highly suggests we think about is Russia.  We aren't sure how that might work seeing we are dual citizens and American citizens still cannot adopt from Russia.  We are waiting to hear if there will be any issues.  Please pray that God would give us wisdom to make the right decisions and take steps in the right direction.  We know He has a plan and trust that He will lead.
