Josh and Sara Whitman – Italy
Thank you for praying for us as we have been praying for you. We are thankful for God’s protection during Covid. The kids returned to school in September and have attended most weeks. We have had only a few lock down weeks for Samuel because of some cases connected to his class. Though we have been healthy, all of Sara’s brothers have gotten the virus and one was very close to death. We praise God for sparing his life. Things have begun to look worse again in our area, so we are staying home which is the regional law at the moment. The ministry has experienced an incredible time of growth and blessing. We are still regularly producing videos. We stream our services and have many of our people follow from home, but also many non-believers that we are connecting with. We are still able to meet in our church hall. We have even started some new activities, including an English book club and a men’s meeting. As a church we are studying the book of Revelation, and it has helped us think through our commitment to Christ. Praise God for the videos we are producing and the many people who watch. Please pray for an adequate heating/cooling system for the church hall. Pray for discipleships that are happening and pray for good spiritual growth in the men’s meeting on Fridays and English club on Wednesdays.
