I really live in two small towns!
I am so blessed to live in the Bel Paese – the beautiful land of Italy. A multi-faceted land, blending tradition with modernity, and timeless monuments with modern Ferraris. A country of ancient but timeless cities and quaint old villages. A beautiful land of silver shores, gleaming seas, and towering snow-capped mountains.
But Italy is, most of all, a land of seeking hearts.
A nation of many churches, rich in religious symbolism, filled with people longing for eternal assurance. Yet a land plagued by occultism and secularism – and sadly lacking in many places, a truly Bible-based message. Italy truly is a needy land of seeking hearts, and we ask your prayers for it and for us.
Our main home
Our main town is nestled in the foothills between the Adriatic Sea and mountains of Abruzzo (left image, above). A beautiful region, it is in many ways also poor and forgotten. Economically depressed, politically neglected, and often even omitted from weather reports on national TV! And most sad of all, mostly unreached with the liberating power of the Gospel. Abruzzo needs your prayers.
Our summer home
Our summer village and Hubby’s birthplace (on the right, above) is hidden away in the remote and lonely mountains of Salerno’s Cilento area. An extremely depressed area, with little work, few people, fewer amenities, and still fewer Bible-believing churches. Where the people, for the most part, feel abandoned, hopeless, and beyond forgotten. We go there to show that they are neither forgotten nor abandoned, and we covet your prayers for them.
Well, arrivederci – FOR NOW!
Because you see, arrivederci, literally translated means “until we see each other again.” Or until we meet again! I hope you’ll join my small town adventures!
