It has been a super busy spring. With Gianluca at work all day and almost every evening filled with meetings and appointments the moments of rest have been few and far between!
Sunday Gianluca had the opportunity to preach at a small church in Barletta. Although it is a small reality, Barletta is a very large city and we are excited to see how God uses this church to reach the people in that city who need the Lord.
Monday we celebrated our 7 year anniversary. It was nice to actually have a day off and spend some time together!
Thursday we started our latest round of premarital courses. We only have one couple who is getting married this year which will make for a new and interesting dynamic in teaching the course. Gianluca has also began the work with the team who will be overseeing the center. It is a team 6 people who are members from the Modugno church. Each member has an area of the center for which they are responsible. Gianluca is trying to coordinate this team and also to be the bridge between the center’s team and the pastoral team( in terms of communication). He has been to the center a few times already and I am sure we will spend a lot of time there this summer as well!
Gianluca is preparing for a “day retreat” with his Mission i6:8 leadership team next Monday the 25th. That evening there will be a meeting in church for anyone who is interested in participating in the trip to Estonia this August. We are prayerful that a lot of young people will show up and choose to get involved. Keep praying for this latest venture undertaken by i6:8. We are excited to see what God will do.
