It was wonderful to spend 3 days around Turin, Italy and meet various churches, youth groups...
Our motivator Assuero Bruno had organised some great meetings in various youth groups, a meeting with leaders and different church services. It was highly inspirational and so encouraging to meet Italians who have been to the past Mission-Net congresses and hear the impact upon their lives.
When we had our outreach to Romania in August, one of the highlights but also most challenging experiences was the visit to the dump outside Cluj, Romania, where the poorest of the poor live on a rubbish mountain. Well, to call this life is an overstatement, as they have nothing but themselves.
We took some time to play with the children, distributed some food and wondered who will be called by God to make a difference there and invest further. Who would sponsor children to go to school so to escape the future life on this dump?
I’m not sure how you spend your time with Jesus. Maybe you are the classical type who has a quiet time at the same time every day. You regularly meet with God for half an hour, read your Bible and speak to Jesus. If that is the case, congratulations. Quiet times seem to suit you. Great!
