This weekend begins the conference on Missions. While some of the world celebrates Halloween we want to pray that God will bring His light into all the world!!! There is so much to do, so many who have not heard….

Let’s go!

“He told them, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.'” Luke 10:2

Sharing about the harvest in Potenza.

Gianluca had the honor to preach in Potenza and share about all that God is doing around the world through i68 and how He is calling us to go!

Pray for the hearts who were opened towards missions… the harvest is plentiful




OCTOBER 25- Let there be light in Modugno!

FREE TIME, the event for children 5-12, hosted an alternative to Halloween this weekend with lots of fun games playing with light. To teach about who gives light, and who is our light- the Light of the world! There were 45 kids there, several of which were new.

Lord be our light!!!

CCV team

We had the joy of hosting a wonderful group of people from www.ccvsocal.com for two weeks this October.

We are thankful for their hearts and joy in serving the Lord! We were able to do street evangelism, an event for the immigrants we work with, teach english in a local school and work to clean up the location we use for our ministry to immigrants here in Modugno “Bracciaperte”.

Thank you team! What a joy to see God working in you and through you!


Learning to be better leaders

As a leader the first thing to realize is that there is always more to learn! And the more you grow the more you realize you need to grow! God is so good and we are so thankful to Him for what He did this last week for the church here in Southern Italy. We were blessed with some great instruction on how to grow as leaders and become more organized and efficient as churches and the church leadership was profoundly blessed with more specific and directed counseling, teaching, and encouragement for which we are profoundly thankful, particularly to Dana Erickson who pushed himself beyond his limits in order to bless us and the ministry here in Southern Italy.

Thank you Dana for everything! It was a huge joy to have you back in Italy and it was God’s divine intervention that brought you and placed the topics on your heart that we were able to walk through.

Thank you also for blessing our socks off and answering a prayer request that we began placing before the Lord over a year ago! For a year we consistently prayed that God would provide for a specific need of ours.  And God supplied through this great man and church! To God be the glory!!
