Spring is here. The season of new life. Easter is the most beautiful and important holiday for followers of Jesus! It is the day we celebrate his resurrection from the dead! It is through his death and resurrection that we can have eternal life. Colossians 2:13-15Â “13When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature,[a] God made you[b] alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, 14having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross. 15And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.” Jesus is resurrected! He is no longer on the cross. He died for our sins and triumphed over death and sin through his resurrection from the dead! He is sitting at the right hand of God in heaven. So I pray that this Easter you will come before a victorious Lord and ask Him to give you the vistory. He is a God of grace. He loves you and wants you to experience victory in him through the cross. Happy Resurrection Day!
Spring is here- the season of new beginnings and birth. We are so excited to be heading to our other “home” on April 8 for a visit. We can’t wait to see you all- Please pray for our travels!!!
INAUGURATION SUNDAY- SUNDAY APRIL 4 AT 10 AM AND 6PM
The church of Modugno will be hosting their inaugurational Sunday of their new facility Sunday April 4- Easter Sunday. God has blessed the church so richly in our new facility over these last few months and we have finally finished up most of the details! We are looking forward to officially opening the doors to the community and saying, “WELCOME HOME”!
Gianluca continuedÂ his series on the book of Galations this Sunday. He preached on Galations 6:6-10.Â It has been a powerful series so far and God is challening the church to grow in grace!
Our little girl is 4! Wow!
Happy Birthday Rory!
Gianluca and I had the pleasure of participating in the event, “Voce del verbo amare”, an event hosted by the entire church as an outreach to the community and the church body itself. We talked about the 5 love languages (Chapman) from a psychological, social and spiritual perspective. There were a lot of people there who were visiting the church for the first time! The event was well-recieved on the whole and it was great to see the church using a new and different tool to reach the community with the love of Jesus.
We are excited to have begun the process of training another couple in the church to come alongside us and partner with us in the Couple’s Ministry. It will take some time to get things running, but we are excited about the support that this new partnership will provide for us and the ministry.

Would I believe you when you would say
Your hand will guide my every way
Will I receive the words You say
Every moment of every day
Well I will walk by faith
Even when I cannot see it
Well because this broken road
Prepares Your will for me
Help me to win my endless fears
You’ve been so faithful for all my years
With the one breath You make me
Your grace covers all I do
Well I’m broken- but I still see Your face
Well You’ve spoken- pouring Your words of grace
I will walk by faith
