I only post newsletters here about twice a year, because much of our life as bi-vocational missionaries (tent-makers) is day-to-day routine. Start with: About Our MIssion Updates. AND you can also…

About Our Mission Updates

Ministry updates are the beginning of a new feature here to keep you better informed on what we do. But first, a bit of background about our years here.

Our Mission News: Spring-Summer 2018

A lot has been going on – we continually see God’s hand at work in the hearts and lives of people. So keep the prayers coming! And thank you for them! Good News from Abruzzo… Mario has nearly finished this year of English teaching and we look forward to the break, and to being able … Continue reading Our Mission News: Spring-Summer 2018

Mission Italia News: Winter 2018

Well, our Winter newsletter is finally up. We seem to have a pretty hard time remaining consistent about this. I have finally realized that it is because Mario and I are not flashy people with a flashy ministry. We’re just normal people, and much of our life here is just normal everyday stuff.

On the homefront in Abruzzo. Hubby still teaches English to local children and adults. And … Continue reading Mission Italia News: Spring 2016

Mission Italia News: Autumn 2015

The work here in Abruzzo is progressing, slowly but surely. We’re starting to get asked into people’s homes, which is a major step here! They’ve even invited us to their big celebrations in restaurants. And we’re also helping out at some refugee camps! But the best part is that we got to share with some … Continue reading Mission Italia News: Autumn 2015
