Italy update #1

Buon giorno!

We are safe and sound in Imola after many hours of traveling. The trip was not as smooth as it could have been, but neither was it as eventful as it could have been. We enjoyed the fellowship of our fellow travelers for an additional 2 1/2 hours on the tarmac in Philadelphia. It was a beautiful display of God’s power and majesty as the thunder rolled and lightning struck. We thought we would have over 3 hours in London on our layover. Instead, we were met by airline personnel to whisk us off to our next gate. Thankfully, our flight to Bologna was also delayed, so we made it just in time to board. We thank the Lord the delay also allowed all of our luggage to arrive.

There were numerous times on our trip over where people asked what “Push The Rock” is. It gave us a great opportunity to share why we would come all the way to Italy for two weeks … to share the love of Christ through basketball.

Our gracious hosts met us at the airport and we have spent the afternoon in additional team training and bonding. We just finished up dinner … so glad Italians take their food VERY seriously:) … and are soon heading into town. Our missionary host plays in a band and tonight is their big outdoor summer concert. Going to be a great night!

Thanks for praying for us. We are excited about the opportunity to be a part of this church plant tomorrow. We spend part of the day getting the lay of the land around town and then preparing for camp on Monday morning.

To God be the Glory!
