Let us remember to meet up with each other so we can encourage each other and find out what we can do to help. (All Sandy’s understanding )Hebrews 10:23-25
The 80% chance of rain for Friday and Sabbath has happened. I am really pleased for the farmers. It isn’t harsh or forceful but just enough to prepare the ground for more. Our drive to Ciete shows how low the water is in one of the rivers.
Last week we met on Sabbath with a lively group of Italians in Lesi/ Jesi who invited us to lunch at an ADRA office. They laughed and joked. One of them translated for us. The food was cooked on Friday and heated so there was plenty of time to relax and talk. There was a story about parents. An English man had fallen in love with an Italian girl during the war and couldn’t forget her so came back to marry her. They then went to live in Argentina, had three boys, then returned to Italy while expecting their fourth. The man telling this story was the fourth child. Fluent in Italian, Spanish and English, he was now married to a Ukrainian lady and he was speaking to her in that language. He was also the host that had invited us and cooked the meal. A lively personality.
Another Italian man said: ” I am really pleased my wife thought her cake wasn’t good enough to bring. I really enjoyed it! A man without a stomach is like the sky without stars.”
The ADRA office in that small town is looking after 400 people. It is so good after travelling to worship with people who understand your love for the Bible.

I have been preparing meals in Bugzy for us three. Things have been busier. Thank you for seeing where we are here in Italy.
