Dear friends,

Summer is almost gone, maybe for some of you it’s already gone but here in Sicily we are still having a nice hot sunny weather. Schools are opening and the guys of J.G. are busy again with their study’s plan. We are hopping Sofia will start to go to her pre-school, but she is on a waiting list for now.
September has been a month of big dates: the 4th it was our 10th anniversary and we are very thankful to God for He has allowed us to have a three days holiday in a very nice and restful place.

The 7th it was Marina and Matteo’s wedding (two of our coworkers and core team’s members), it was special, God honored this young but faithful couple with His Holy Presence and everyone who was there was feeling it and moved by it.

For almost the whole month we are having the visit of an English missionary Richard Curd, we know him from a long time and all the church here it is being blessed by his ministry.
As every last week of the month we will have a 24h prayer from Friday 28th to Saturday 29th ,
feel free to send us your prayer request, and to join us wherever you are.

We are so happy to announce you that the 30th of September we will have the baptism of four of the youth of Jesus Generation, please pray for Manuela, Noemi, Davide and Fabio for their decision to testify the work God has began in their lives and that He is their Lord, for a special protection in these days and that their walk with Jesus will be great in passion and faithfulness.

We have many projects for this coming season, of course we will start on a full rhythm with the Saturday night and with the Sunday celebration, but we have in mind some changing as well.
We are organizing a play station tournament for all the youth who are spending their nights outside in the street coming closer and closer to our gate, please pray that it will be an opportunity for them to come in and see who we are by His grace and what we do for His glory.

We will soon try to have new distributions of Book of Hope in the schools, please pray that God will open this door again so that other youths like our Stefano did last year, will give their life to Jesus. Beside Book of Hope we’d like to realize another little booklet made with testimony of different people from our group, and many sketch and dramas some of us has already wrote down.

October will see the beginning of house groups and different social activities during the week, we will take care of some but not all of them please pray for wisdom and guidance on leading those appointments, for us and for our core team: Dario & Melinda, Graziella, Matteo & Marina
and Turi.

We want to thank all of you for your constant prayer and support knowing the awesome value it has for us “Brethren, pray for us” (1 Thess 5:25)

“But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalm and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” Colossians 3:14,17
