So I am eager to preach the gospel
to you also who are in Rome.
Ministry in Italy
I have had the opportunity to talk to many young people here
about missions. There is a lot of interest in the churches.
Antonio, the director of NTM Italy tells me that the churches
here do a great job of teaching Doctrine. One area that they
are just beginning to grow in is the responsibility of taking the
Gospel to those who have never heard outside of Italy.
Currently there are 8 Italian students at the NTM training
centre in North Cotes, England.
Sunday I preached here in Pietracatella on the topic of God's will.
I think it went well though it is always hard to tell with translation.
Maybe they heard a totally different message from the one I spoke. :)
The unsaved wife of one of the church members was here for the
We had had several prayer meetings during my time here.
It is a blessing to pray with and for my Italian brothers and sisters in
Christ. It also gives me insight into their lives and the things they care
about. Their concerns are very much the same things we care about
as Christians in the US. Unsaved family and friends, the economy,
the nation, health issues etc.
