Alive among the dead

But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. Ephesians 2:4-5

Seeing this sunflower this morning on a walk with my wife Rebecca, it reminded me of this passage in the Word of God. God made us alive with His son Jesus, by His grace and not by our works. Working in a country like Italy, where the religious system is based on works, makes it sometimes difficult to explain the real meaning of this biblical concept. We pray that we can live it with our every day life and with our words.

Earthquake

Tonight we had a little earthquake here in Umbertide. The epicenter was 20 minutes from our house. Rebecca was sleeping when our bed moved for around 3 seconds. But everybody is doing good here.

Summer Games 2013

We finished the summer games for kids in the park last week on Friday.
This year we had very few kids. It was a very hot week and many children were on vacations...
But we had around 2 new kids each day, we pray that they return to the English Club we'll start in October. 

It was a good program with craft, games, songs and Bible stories about who is Jesus and why He is so important for our lives.
