FRIDAY and SATURDAY, JUNE 6 and 7 –
VISITING WITH LOCAL BELIEVERS…
On Friday at lunch, Doug and I had seafood risotto and calamari with Osvaldo and Margarite Azzone and their three children. They lead the worship in the Spanish church. In the evening I managed to get in an hour of counseling before the class began.
Saturday we hopped on a train and went to Fidenza (12 minutes west) where we had lunch with OM MuslXm worker and our Italian translator, Simona Restori, her two children and another missionary, Irene from Germany.
Simona and her children, Camella and Josiah.
Visiting with Latino leaders in Parma.
Luciano and Marilene.
After several hours with friends we went back to Parma where, in the evening had an amazing Columbian supper (no wonder I walk all over Italy but never lose any weight) with Luciano and Marilene workers in the Latino Church. Pastor Aldo and his wife, Mariela joined us. Since I had to pack, preach and then travel to England the next day, we retired early.
