Italy 2019 Update #1

After about 9 hours of traveling, the team safely arrived in Venice, Italy and was greeted by a missionary and church member. Team was also greeted by rain and thunder despite Italy being known for its hot June. After getting loaded into the car, the team arrived at the Bed and Breakfast they would be staying at the following. The church member, who met them at the airport, she lives in an apartment below the Bed and Breakfast. She offered to allow us to leave our bags with her as we downsize into smaller bags for our trip to Faenza. After getting ourselves together, we grabbed lunched at Ali Baba’s (place known for its Turkish-style kebabs and a staple of every Italy trip) and proceed for the train station. We boarded the train around 1 pm and arrived in Faenza around 4:15. Our missionary host greeted the team and took us to her apartment. We were finally excited to get settled in and relax. Prior to dinner, we decided to play several card games, like Skip-Bo and “Cambio,” as part of our team bonding. For dinner, we would enjoy parmesan-crusted chicken, green beans, salad, oven-roasted potatoes, and pan-seared zucchini and tomatoes topped with parmesan cheese. Dinner was amazing and the missionary shared several stories from the camp she was running in a nearby town last week. After dinner, we cleaned up the table and washed the dishes. We concluded the night with Team Time by discussing tomorrow’s schedule, covering some training material, and trip expectations. We are excited about worshiping in Italian as church tomorrow will be in a nearby town.
