Friends…The month of May was way too much fun! Our Father is so gracious to us!
The Lord allowed me to preach in a new Italian church plant a couple of hours east of Milano…Our church is coming alongside this new work to provide prayer and financial support along with fellowship, counsel and encouragement…It’s called the “Grace Alone Church”…A great contrast to the false church that dominates this nation.
Karen was invited to be the keynote speaker at an women’s conference made up of 60 Italian speaking women doing evangelical ministry in southern Italy…She traveled to the extreme southern tip of the Italian peninsula to challenge the women to persevere in deepening their relationship with God as they persevere in their ministry.
Also this month…Pictured below…The Lord blessed our church with yet another great annual women’s retreat… We had a little over 60 women from about 15 different nations for a long weekend in Varese, Italy. Once again, we simultaneously translated all the sessions into Italian for the good number of Italian women present.
Just last Sunday, pictured below…I had the privilege to baptize Chen from China…Until just recently she was an atheist…Not any more…Until she came to ICM she had never been in a Christian church before…God has done a beautiful work in her life…She gave an emotional & tear-filled testimony…She calls the Biblical gospel “gorgeous!”
