Because of your prayers and offerings, I am writing this newsletter from Rome, Italy! Amazing! First and foremost, the McMiller family needed to sign an apartment contract for our visa application. Thanks be to God, we signed the  contract to our new home on Saturday, January 29th. 

Traveling by train, we have been able to visit different contacts of our Lutheran Church throughout the Peninsula (Fiumicino, Padova and Florence). We were also blessed by a visit from our fellow LCMS missionaries in Italy, Michael (associate regional business director) and Nancy Morizio here in Rome. I pray that I will soon be able to travel to Turin, Naples and Civitavecchia, cities where we also have faithful attendees of our online Zoom service. 

I would like to include a specific story about a man who has been attending our Zoom services faithfully for over 18 months. Here you can see a picture of me with Roberto Scafa and his family. It is truly incredible how ripe the harvest field is! How the Lord brings people to us! Roberto had lived his whole life as a Roman Catholic, but was continually plagued by the divergences of that church and God’s Word, specifically on the Lord’s Supper (transubstantiation, sacrifice of the mass, receiving only the bread/body of Christ without the chalice…). But God placed into his hands an Italian translation of some of Martin Luther’s writings on the Lord’s Supper which led him to our Church. I remember the first time I wrote to Roberto. I said that I couldn’t wait to get to Italy to be his pastor. He responded by saying that he couldn’t wait to become a Confessional Lutheran.To God be the glory!
