My Assignment

Just wanted to share with you real quickly about my homework assignment for next week. Alessandra asked me today at the end of my lesson if I would prepare for next Thursday an explanation of a Bible passage for her. I was absolutely shocked, but of course enthusiastically agreed. She has mentioned before that she reads the Bible from time to time and I asked her if there was any particular passage she is interested in and she said that it's my choice.

When I told Jonathan about it he immediately asked: "What are you going to do?" I responed "PRAY!!" So that is what I am asking y'all (like that one Michelle?) to do.

#1 pray that the Lord will lay the right passage on my heart to share
#2 pray for the ability to convey this in ITALIAN!
#3 pray this will open the door wider for more conversations in the future
#4 pray that my confidence and strength will be evidently from the Lord

Alessandra corrected my written testimony in Italian a couple of weeks ago and she knows why we are here. I am thankful for this challenge but am very nervous. Thanks in advance for your prayers and I'll be sure to let you know how it all goes!
