Our time here is coming to a close … for this year!
I have tried to keep a journal of our days here in Italy and in Germany, and it is interesting to go back and read what God has done and the people that we've come in contact with.
That is what we are here for …. the people. We have met so many and from all different areas of the world. Maybe one has called out to God in the last couple months? Maybe one has a heart that is growing softer to the seed of Christ and another servant will come and water?
We have started packing and we continue working. This morning we all went out in our own neighborhood and passed out tracts to all the mailboxes. What a blessing it was to hear our daughter pray for an old man she saw reading the tract.
Please continue praying for our neighbor, Anna. Her husband died about four years ago and in my conversations with her about God, she has told me that she gave up on God when her husband died. I told her that God loves her and gave her more Bible verses. She is very sad that we are leaving. Just today, she asked me when we would return. "Io no so, " I said…. " I don't know".
As we prepare to leave, we ask that you pray for us as well. God holds our future in His hands. What a comfort to leave our cares with Him!
... 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.
