Sorry for the delay in the update a bit of a busy time for the past week.
To follow up on my last post we went to the gypsy camp where we had a real strange time. For the first time it felt like we had no grace there, also for the first time we got robbed - only some euros from the car, but still it has never happened before. There seems to have been some kind of a disagreement in the camp because normally we would go to one house and loads of children from other houses would come streaming out but thisa tme just a few did and they were threatened with stones so they didn't hang around. The elder of the section of the camp we hang out in forbade us from giving food to some of the other families too. It was a bit of a frustrating time.
On Saturday (I think) Jess headed off to the UK with Leah who was heading back to the States from the UK. Jess hung out with some of the guys that she has met here and had a great time. She's fallen in love with England and is starting to talk proper English - finally.
On Monday evening at midnight some guys from Sheffield came in for a short mission & holiday break - Liz, Bex, Rachel, Tom (all have just done FORM) and Nigel, a good friend of ours.
Tuesday we headed out into the city centre with a load of food to hand out to the homeless and to the beggers and to offer to pray with them - the trouble was there weren't too many around, they've all gone on holiday for August and are plying their trade near the coast. We split into two groups and the boys bumped into Leoni (picture below). Massive respect to Nigel and Tom who just layed hands upon him and called upon the Holy Spirit.
Tuesday midnight and Joe Gibson arrived along with Jess back from the UK. Wednesday we said goodbye to Jess who was off to babysit our neighbours children for a few weeks and the rest of us went up to the church in Frascati and cleaned and painted for the day. We really appreciate all of the help that the Form guys gave and also so do the church. Thursday was chill at the beach day followed by prayer and prophesy for each other in the evening. Friday people went into Rome and then we said goodbye to the UK gang and also Chris who headed off into Rome to listen to God. We spent the day packing up furniture and cleaning.
Saturday we had time with Marco and Cinzia and moved a load of the stuff here onto one of their balconies. Sunday was our last church service in Frascati and we also explored the caves in the hill above a bit. Oh yeah we also had Jess and Chris back for a few days.
Harriet and Sophie leave tomorrow , Jess went off again today and Chris also heads off tomorrow so tomorrow evening it will be just the two of us for the first time in a long long long long time........... We meet the landlord on Wed to sort out keys deposit etc - please pray for our deposit being returned to us.
