All in a Week’s Work
It is good to settle into a “normal” week of work again, and it is refreshing to do the work having talked about the work all summer!
This is the work this week for which we ask your prayer:
-Jim is promoting and writing the curriculum for his next pastor training class—this one on the history of the Protestant church.
-We will be meeting with Pastor Emanuele at the Marghera church to plan a 9-month project of worship development and the organization of a women’s group. Debbie is preaching there on Sunday in Italian—always a challenge!
-Debbie is writing two articles in Italian for Italy’s Service of Refugees and Migrants promotion of the European Anti-trafficking Day on Oct. 18.

The final tally is not in from the Extra Lift Matching Fund campaign, but August figures and September online donations, about which we got immediate electronic notification, indicate we have 22 new pledges of support. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We continue a steady climb to having our ministry fully funded on a regular basis!
We pray your fall is off to a beautiful start!
Your missionaries in Italy,
Debbie, along with Jim, Luke & Ben
