This was my sixth trip to Italy. It was a great combination of working with old friends and making new. It was wonderful to reconnect with Luke and Dawn Mann of Adventive Cross Cultural Initiatives. Working with the Mann’s and their organization
was my primary focus for this trip. It was also wonderful to reconnect with Elim’s Smile. You may remember from last year this fledgling organization was birthed in the hearts of an amazing group of Italians, both young and old, to reach the poor and needy. They present the Gospel in and word and deed
and they are making an impact. The Lord is blessing their work and it continues to grow.
