Small World: Episode 23

OK, yesterday’s theme was Connected Movements. Check this out…

Last night on my way through the 15,000+ dinner crowd, I saw a gal sporting an Italia jacket. Thinking she might be an Italian student, I introduced myself. “No, we’re not Italian, but were just there on a mission project last week.”
“What city were you in?” I asked.

“Florence,” came the reply.

“Really! My sister lives there,” says I.

This started three minutes of excited gushes from Charlotte, Megan and Andrea, as they told me how they had dinner in my sister Carrie’s home LAST WEEK, how much they loved their family, her husband Gary’s leadership, etc, etc. Gary and Carrie followed the Lord’s leading to Italy last fall where they are trusting God to plant a new student movement in very hard soil.

Ciao, Ken
