A friend of mine was denied housing in Italy because he was an evangelical Christian. True story. Not something you'd typically expect from Italians.
Cold to the true Gospel. Rejecting of any sort of relationship with Jesus Christ. This is modern day Italy. They don't need our charity, they don't need our education, food, etc. But they do need the Gospel. It will take intentionality. It will take work. It will take sacrifice and prayer. It will be hard.
But we're going. And we want you to go with us.
