After meeting with Pastor Rizza, Emile drove me the two and one-half hours from Trento to Parma (between Milano and Bologna). It was my idea to introduce him to ACCI missionaries and friends Aldo and Francesco.
Friday Morning… LB Arrives in Milano
Almost twenty-five years ago I had the privilege of playing a part in the conversion of former Minnesota Viking and Ottawa Rough Rider, Larry Brune. During and after his football career he and his teammate, Val Belcher launched the highly successful Tex-Mex Lone Star Restaurant in Ottawa, the national capital of Canada.
After his daughter and wife, Leslie had visited Italy, Larry got in touch with me and asked if he might join me for a week and to this suggestion I heartily agreed so he arrived at the Milano Central Station where I met him. We had a nice Italian lunch of caprese, spinache and lasagna then headed right to Parma so he might go to bed and shake off his jet lag.
