“The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few…”
This is the message that we are bringing to the churches in Italy. And it is incredible to see how God is moving and calling young people to dedicate their lives to sharing the love of Jesus with those who still have not heard it.
It is always amazing to see how God has prepared and called in advance his workers to the harvest. Gianluca preached in Sicily this weekend about the need to go, and to send. He was surprised when people came to him after the message and said, “I am ready to go.” And when he said, “Great! We will be organizing a short term trip for next summer.” They replied, “No I am ready to go! What do I need to do to be ready to leave for the field?”
Often I wonder why God has allowed us the honor to be part of all this. To prepare, to go, to send, to reach, to love those who need to experience HIS love. It is a privilege and an overwhelming responsibility. God is calling many! Pray with us as we seek to challenge the Italian church to be ready to send!! We do not want to take people out of their churches to be involved in our organization, but desire to work with the local church to help them be the ones who send out their members.
“How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard?And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” Romans 10:14-15
