Dear friends, for ten years now Mission Sicily has been doing just what it set out to do: 1) make disciples, 2) plant churches, and 3) build bridges of hope among the isolated and the oppressed in Sicily.
With your help, we're ready to engage in the second phase of this mission; we're calling it Mission Sicily 2.0. And not just that, we're preparing to embark on a new venture called Mission Italy 1.0. This multiplication has been our plan for some years, and now, through much prayer and new strategic partnerships, we're finally set to realize this long-awaited season of expansion.
You can check out our newsletter and podcast for more info about these new developments, or visit our website: https://missionsicily.com to connect. In the meantime, we invite you to participate in this new growth and season of multiplication with your special donation. Where will the money go, and how will it be used?
The most immediate need is to get Gino and me back to the states and in front of churches and supporters. We're planning a fundraising trip for the Spring of 2023. Folks have waited a long time to meet Gino and receive an in-person update directly from our national partner. It will also expose Gino to folks that've sown into the mission.
Your prayer and support will also help us to accomplish these five critical steps toward the immediate future of ministry:
- Entrust leadership of Mission Sicily to Pastor Gino in Belpasso (Sicily)
- Enable the local church to enter the next phase of its building plan
- Empower us to begin preparation for the launch of Mission Italy 1.0
- Equip us financially to relocate to the north of Italy: in or near Turin
- Establish new relationships and seek new partnerships in the region
Thank you for an entire decade of faithful prayer and financial support; your investment has been carefully stewarded and is still producing fruit.
Thank you for helping us enter Phase Two!
