Spotlight on Missions

From Steve & Cindy Thompson – Italy

“As we come to the last month of 2014, how great it is to look back over the year and celebrate God’s faithfulness in so many ways. Right up there at the top of the list we see His faithfulness to provide for us through you! There are so many who sacrificially give to make it possible that we can live in Italy and share the love of Christ with Italians and others who live here. Because of your love for God and passion to see the Gospel spread to all parts of the world, we can live out the Gospel and share the life-changing message of eternal life. Through your prayers, you are reaching people who might never have a chance to hear and receive the gift of salvation.”
