Italy Update #4

“It always makes a difference how one ends.

Aren’t endings where you shut, but don’t lock, the door?”

-Stephen Dunn


Buongiorno! Today brought a special presentation at camp. Josh, the pastor/missionary we are partnering with here in Imola retold the Parable of the Prodigal Son from Luke 15 for all of the kids. We then split the kids up into small groups where coaches followed up with discussion questions to gage the campers’ response and to encourage their reception of the gospel message.  We have been uplifted by the kids’ general receptivity to Christ and their display of God-honoring behavior in camp activities in accordance with the challenges we have given them.


God has given us wonderful opportunities to display his love, unity and goodness to the campers and to others both during camps through teaching, testimonies, and interaction, and outside of camps at our Imola tournament games where many of the kids came out to support us and saw our integrity on display!  Praise the Lord.


Please continue to pray for the children, that God will draw them to Himself and grant them open hearts and ears. Tomorrow is our final day of camp with them and we will also eat dinner and talk with their parents after camp.  Please pray that we will end this week well, leaving the parents and players savoring the pleasant aroma of Christ’s saving love and work, that they might praise God because of us and that God’s kingdom may grow through our ministry, that God will cause the seeds planted this week to grow.
