Praise the Lord that Dave has arrived safely. He had a good flight and except for an inflamed back and legs, he's felt fine. Thankfully, He brought some ibuprofen. Please be praying that he recuperates well before Sunday… the day of the Rome Marathon… more on that in another post.
Dave has hit the streets of Rome with no time to waste! Please be praying for John, a man from Poland. He was very happy to get a John and Romans in his own language! Rev and Lisa are a couple from England. They are not saved but they were willing to take some DVD's. Adesso is a man from Italy and he threw his tract in the trash but Dave was able to talk with him after that and Adesso took a DVD. We pray that God would use these tools to reveal more of Himself to them.
We are well on the home front. Our children have good attitudes about all of this and we are making it a point to pray for dad often during the day. We thank you for your prayers for us as well!
... 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.
