Each and every one of us has the opportunity to share Christ with those around us. We do this directly or indirectly… Sometimes, we even get to see a little glimpse of how God might be using the seed we planted. What an encouragement and a testimony of God's grace to us!
Today was Dave's last full day in Rome. He was at the Vatic*n for awhile and it started to rain. As he was taking cover, he saw a man he had met last December. This man had just returned last week from a trip to South America. Dave had given him a Spanish John and Roman in December but the man, Antonio, said that he was reading an English Bible, a Good News translation. Dave had an Authorized KJV Bible with him and was able to show Antonio that Acts 8:37 was missing from his translation. He also showed him that "the blood" was gone in Antonio's Colossians 1:14. The last half of Mark 16 was also gone from Antonio's Bible! Antonio was amazed! Dave gave him the Authorized KJV that he had with him.
Thank you for praying for Antonio! Thank you for praying for Dave! Here is a post from last December. There is a picture of Antonio. http://travelinpilgrim.blogspot.com/2015/12/a-face-to-name.html
Do you remember Ali? Dave has been able to meet with him several times on this trip as well. Please continue to pray for his salvation. Dave has been a good listener, but Ali needs Jesus.
Dave had 90 tracts left at the end of his day today and so he decided to finish by placing them in some apartment mailboxes where he had never been. He noticed that there had also been some JW doing the same thing just before him. Praise the Lord for His direction and perfect timing! Please pray that the Holy Spirit would reveal TRUTH to the people in this apartment building.
Please be in prayer for Dave as he travels ALL DAY tomorrow. Please pray for safety and for physical strength. Please be in prayer for our family over the next few days especially. Dave has said he is exhausted and there will definitely be a time of transition for all of us.
Again, we thank the Lord for you and for your prayers!
... 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.
