Exch@nge Outreach Camp!

Apologies for writing so late about the last few days of the Exch@nge Camp, but we've been busy!

On Saturday we had a great Service Project painting the athletes' entrance of Budrio's Sport Centre.
We were encouraged to see many kids from the camp who came to work alongside the Houston team and the men from our church!
Local authorities have been very pleased by the work done and really appreciated the serving attitude we expressed.

In the evening we had a tasty Texan BBQ on the balcony of
the Theatre we use as church in partnership with the Le Torri
Café manager.
The place was full of kids and their families and other local friends we invited.
Many Gospel conversations took place, we are full of expectations to see the work of the Lord!

On Sunday we held a family service and more than 70 came along, including kids and their families.
Jonathan preached a challenging sermon from John 8:36 and Giulio the major came to thank our church for our presence in the Budrio community!

On Monday we had to say goodbye to dear Lily who helped in so many ways at the Camp.

With the Houston team we had a day to switch off enjoying Venice.

Then on Tuesday early morning the team flew back to the States!

We really feel so blessed by the Gospel partnership we enjoyed with all the Italian, British and American friends that share our vision to reach out Budrio and this community!
