Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
I Thessalonians 5:11

Dearest Friends,

In Every Language

In every language, no matter where you live in the world, encouragement is a blessing! Even though the Father has been doing some incredible things here through our teams, it is still a hard field for the Gospel. Most people here have lost any belief that God is interested in them. They would be quick to tell you that they attend a certain church, but many have not visited in years. More, people are suspicious of people not from their group.

I have had some beautiful conversations with different friends who work with us here. One time of fellowship even took place as we were driving in from the airport on the day I arrived. I have shared so many stories about friends we work with in other places in the world. I deliberately chose the stories that stretched our own faith as we lived them. I wanted them to know that nothing is impossible for God!

Above is a lovely picture from one of these meetings. Please pray for our partners in ministry here. They desperately need encouragement so that they will not fall prey to people’s lies and believe what they have always heard. Truly, God can do the impossible in America, in Italy, everywhere in the world!

In Jesus, Linda
