Sowing a Seed, Fervent in Prayer

We've been out "on the town" today. It is a beautiful day here in Italy, so we took advantage of it. What a difference a sunny day makes! The whole town seemed to be out.

I've added the following people to my prayer list. I don't know their name, but so thankful that the Lord does. One day, I hope to see them in heaven!

  • a nice Nonna (Grandma) that we met on the bus. She was just talking away with Ashlyn and Addie, in Italian of course! I understood that she had seven grandchildren and she told us their names. We gave her a tract and she gave us a little Catholic book!
  • a lady that we met on the subway. She was studying her English. We talked for a little bit and Dave gave her an English Bible and an Italian tract. She was very grateful and couldn't believe we would give her such a gift. Dave said she could practice her English better with the little Bible.
  • a nun that we saw on the subway. Our littlest was mesmorized by her. She wondered if the lady had any hair! She spoke a little English, but we gave her an Italian tract. I often wonder what the nuns think when we give them a tract.

"For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth" Romans 10:2-4

I would love to have been on the Metro with you, especially when the nun was on the ride. That was probably an interesting moment for the kids. Keep planting!

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.
