The true meaning of a husband

Marriage is to be a reflection of God’s love for His church. I am so thankful to have a husband who fights so hard to love me in this way! He is amazing and never ceases to astound me in His desire to love and serve the Lord.


Today is his birthday and I just want to thank the Lord for him, celebrate who he is and ask that you would please fervantly sustain him in your prayers during this period. He has a ton on his plate with work, and my health and the kids.

Happy birthday to the most amazing man I know. I love you. I love you so much Gianluca and I hope you feel profoundly loved today on your birthday!

“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.” Hebrews 10


Our newly glasses wearing princess is free! She got her cast off today and is doing great!

Thank you for your prayers for her during this time. We are so happy to see her doing better…and wouldn’t mind a few extra prayers for the next month or so. She is not supposed to fall (a very difficult task for Aurora) for a month because she would most likely break her arm again.

Looking at the ceiling again

I am (Carli) unfortunately back on my back again since the 14th of this month.

Please support our family with your love and prayers. Pray for quick healing for me and for peace in my mind and boday as I am stuck in bed again and pray for Gianluca that God would renew his strength as he seeks to balance so many things.

Thank you for fighting the most important battle with us- the battle in prayer! God is in control…AMEN.

Gianluca continues his series on Galations this Sunday October 14. This week he preached on Galations 5:16-18.

Galations has been a powerful series and a beautiful look into God’s grace. And now this week is the challenge on what our response is to His grace!

A great opportunity

We are excited that a few of our candidates were able to head over to Spain for some training during a wonderful conference.

God has been so good to provide us with great connections and to bless the i6.8 candidates with great training and preparation through these amazing opportunities! We are sure God will do great things in their hearts during their week stay!

Thank you for praying!

Our little Ninja turns 8!


Elaigia celebrated his 8th birthday Ninja-style at our home this October 7. We invited a bunch of his friends over and had some ninja fun. Our little man is growing so fast! We are so thankful to have him as a part of our amazingly blessed little family.

Happy Birthday Ninjago EJ!!

We love you!

New glasses

Auroraimage_1349942990761625 got glasses! Isn’t she cute?!

Rory has been going through so many changes these last several weeks with starting school, a broken arm, and now glasses. If you think of her say a little prayer for her sensitive soul.

She was really confident that she wants these glasses and is pretty excited about wearing them too!
