Dear family and friends,
Recently we received information about a short-term mission trip to Italy with Kingdom Ministries, and it wasn’t long before we were considering going. After much prayer, we applied and were accepted to the Italy team.
Our team will be specializing in putting together camps for Italian teens. We will be doing two of the four week long camps. Two of the camps will be held at the Air Force base beaches especially for the teens of the bases. The other camps will be at a private beach and at a local school for their students. Two camps happening at the same time at two different locations. The first two camps are from June 18-22 and then the final two camps are from June 25-29.
It is our hope that God will use our team and us to share God’s love with the teens and their parents. Last year over 25 teens accepted Christ at the camps. Fabiano, the pastor of the local church, will do much of the gospel presenting, and is eager to continue discipling new believers. He is an incredibly gifted and dynamic evangelist, whom we were able to hear preach recently.
The cost of the trip is $1000 each per week of camp plus airfare (we plan to pay for our own airfare). Since we will be doing two camps our total support need is around $4000.
We would appreciate it if you would ask God if this is a project He would like you to take part in. You can contribute (May 31 is deadline date) by going to buildingthekingdom.org, then clicking on donate, then individuals, then on our picture. Thanks!
Even more important than the finances is the prayer support that our team will need. We would like to have many who will pray each day of the ministry. Please consider being one of our prayer partners, and let us know if you are! Some specific prayer requests:
*Energy! And, energy in the heat- apparently it will be very hot;
*Safe and successful travel- both on planes, trains, and cars/vans. It appears one of Jeff’s tasks will be driving one of the teams to various locations;
*Enthusiasm- while we are eager to go, we want to be excited about the entire event and through the entire duration of the trip.
*Effectiveness for the two of us- we want to be all God wants us to be, helping and blessing others all along the way;
*Effectiveness for the mission- souls saved, believers growing in their walk with the Lord, growth in the Italian church.
*Help wherever we might need it in navigating language and culture.
For His Kingdom,
Jeff and Diane Morris
