Yes, it's a hard life, I know! But to be quite honest, I've come out of several busy weeks of hard ministry with several funerals and I have one more just two days after I return in a few weeks and I do have to prepare a sermon and lead worship each week for the church here in Vicenza, so it's not all fun and games! (But don't get me wrong, I do love it!!) I also spend a few days with church members each week when possible and Sharon and I have also had some of our International missionary friends from around the world visit to encourage them and so they could get some time away. Some of them really need the time away from their ministries to help in their marriages, work and personal stress levels and just to enjoy good fellowship with friends. We hope that we're providing some of that for them as we too need to rest and enjoy God's creation. So, here are a few more photos of how things are going and how good God is. We'll post some photos of the church service later in the week also.
