Expansion of Ministry in Italy

If you only read about us on this blog, then you may not have heard our latest news. Because of some new interest in Italy from potential missionaries, we are going to be leading a new team in a city yet to be chosen in the North. We will be praying, surveying and researching many Italian cities before determining which one God is leading this new team. We are planning to come back to the states in November 2007 to raise awareness and funds, as well as recruit and prepare a new team. Then in May/June of 2008 we hope to return to Italy with the new team and head to the new city.

Until then, we will continue to minister here in Ancona, doing the tasks we have been doing for years and still connecting our relationships to Christ. As we learn about the cities we are studying, I will post items of relevance.

Back from the Team Retreat

Well, we had our team retreat a couple of weeks ago. It went very well, one of our best yet. Everyone had come prepared with their goals for the next six months. We looked at the last year and what goals had been accomplished, as well as what goals were not accomplished and why. We had several planned and unplanned times of team building. We had video games, spades and some videos.

In the next few weeks we will be sharing some of the exciting goals that we will be shooting for this year. Thanks for any of you who prayed. We could tell that it was covered in prayer.
