Greetings to all of our faithful prayer warriors. Thank you for battling with us! It is truly a battle here.

FAMIGLIA

I would like to thank everyone who prayed for me and sent words of comfort when my father (Robert) passed away in the Congo last month. Chantal has also just lost her dear cousin in Paris this weekend. We are comforted to know that God’s grace sustains us, but we pray for comfort and strength in difficult times when we cannot see our family.  Chantal’s health is doing ok. For Tania, Marco, Miky we pray for spiritual growth and strength, for stable work for Tania and part-time jobs for the boys as they are in school. We ask God that they would know His deep love and be lights in this region. Allison would like prayer for physical and spiritual strength and wisdom at work with her students!

CHIESA

We ask for continued spiritual growth among all members. UNITY. And we desperately plead with God to provide a meeting place for us; either something given to us by the town hall (to use for free) or cheap rent. We thank the Lord that the members are learning to invest more in the church as worship.

  • La Speranza: We ask for prayer in the organizing of our new non-profit. We still need an accountant and have many details to attend to: opening bank account, organizing evangelistic events, finding a location, etc. The vision is to offer free courses (music, language, cooking, sewing) and other events (concerts, debates, etc.) as part of evangelistic outreach here in the Castelli. We are also praying fervently about collaboration with a neighboring church in opening a Christian-run ‘American style’ coffee bar.
  • Home-groups: We thank God for the spiritual and numerical growth we’ve seen in our home bible studies in Albano-Genzano, Colleferro, and Frascati!
  • We have many things we would like to do, but need the commitment and time and talents of people within our church and from the outside to achieve them. We pray that God would direct and lead us always in these plans according to His will. Priorities include: Christmas concert (looking for someone to come perform), Easter outreach, Church retreat in June (theme: The Holy Spirit).
  • The Sick. Please pray for healing of: Paola (cancer), Thereasa (back), Catherina, Eleonora, Giulia (cancer).
  • Salvation/Baptism: Barbara (Albano), Laura (Albano), Raffaele (Frascati), Patrizia (Frascati), Matteo (Frascati).
