This is a sneak peek into my next update. It has been an eventful last few weeks, but I will share more on that in the near future. Right now I want to share a short video I made from our baptism yesterday.
Three of our youth decided to get baptized this past weekend and it was such a joy to witness. Believers from the churches in Feltre and Montebelluna came out to support these young men in their decision to follow Jesus and it was so precious. These believers truly love one another and I am beyond blessed to be a part of the work that God is doing here in Italy.
A little about these young men. I have been so blessed and encouraged by them. All three have such unique personalities and gifts. They are musical, athletic, intelligent, curious, loving, and bring joy to so many. Even in the short time I've been here and have been involved with the youth group, I have seen them grow in the Lord. They take notes during the messages, constantly ask questions during the study, pray for and encourage one another in Christ, and serve in various areas. I am so excited to see what the Lord has in store for them in the future because I already see Him doing great things in their lives now!
"I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me."
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
Thank you all for your continued prayers! We serve a great and mighty God who is always faithful! It's a joy to watch Him work!
Love in Christ,
