Testimony Time

Does your church have a time for testimonies to be said? We don't always have a set time for it, but when the time comes, I always love to hear how the Lord is working in the lives of His children. I love sharing what He is doing as well....

We came to Italy with 14, 000 tracts in our suitcases. With the language barrier what it is, it is very hard to have a heart to heart conversation with these Italian people. We have found that tracts are the best way to share Jesus with them on a more general level. So, we have been passing out tracts!

The family has gone together to pass out tracts around the neighborhood where we live. We have somewhat of a system now so that we can cover the whole city before we leave.

Dave has also been passing out tracts a little farther out. He has gone a couple times now to the V*tic*n area and also to some other cities a little closer to where we are. One such time, he was invited in by a man who was Italian. From what Dave could gather, this man wanted him to come in and read the Bible with him. He would have his Italian Bible and Dave would follow along in his English Bible. After sitting down with him for a little bit, he could see from the material and talk that this man was a Jehovah's Witness. Unfortunately, this cult is passing out their literature as well.

We want to see the truth of the Bible being proclaimed and not anyone else's interpretation, Catholic or otherwise. Please continue praying for us! May the Lord's work and will be done!

"The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal till the whole was leavened." Matt. 13:33

Yesterday we learned that yeast doesn't grow, it permeates. So the kingdom of Heaven operates from small beginnings and there is no limit with God as it works beyond the witness we try to offer. The yeast should be there soon and as you kneed the bread think of how the yeast permeates
the whole - think of how they need your witness.

Hebrews 11:13,15,16

... These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off and were PERSUADED of them, and EMBRACED them, and CONFESSED that they were STRANGERS and PILGRIMS on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country... But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
