On Sunday we'll be at
Chiesa Evangelica di Sasso Marconi, a Brethren church
in a village near Bologna.
Stefano will preach in the morning on Hebrews 11:1-4
"Christ in the faith of Abel".
"Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. By faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, through which he was commended as righteous, God commending him by accepting his gifts. And through his faith, though he died, he still speaks."
Hebrews 11:1-4 (ESV)
For the service we'll have a group from the team of Nuova Vita Church who this summer went to Bulgaria for a short mission trip to support the work YfC is doing in Yambol.
In the afternoon, after the fellowship lunch, they will share with the church some specific prayer point including:
the work amongst Gipsies and street kids and
the training projects will happen in the centre the group renovated.
