I am enjoying these days with my dear Mom. When I saw her in 2015 for a couple days I was pretty sure the next time would be in heaven but God graciously kept her. There is nothing so precious as sitting with her at the table and hear her pray before we eat. Her faith has stayed strong in all her difficulties. Living in Italy for the last 44 years has meant that very little time was spent with my parents and family. But they always loved and encouraged us as we ministered in the needy land of Italy where the Bible remains a closed book to most Italians. Thank you Mom for always being there for me. We will be stateside until November 10th.
