I served in the US Army in Vicenza, Italy as a paratrooper. While there, I saw a great spiritual need among many Italians. A few years later, while in Bible college, God touched my heart to go back to Italy as a missionary. Suzanne and I met shortly before my graduation. God had called her to go to Europe as a missionary before we ever met.
In 1999 we left for Italy with our three young daughters.
In 2007 we moved to Trieste, Italy where we work with the Rogersons and Tuckers in helping a small church to grow and to become independent, able to sustain itself with the Lord’s help and without the assistance of missionaries. God has tripled the size of the church and brought many into its doors. God has uniquely gifted each of the six members of our team to fulfill a purpose in the ministry in Trieste.
We use evangelistic outreaches and personal Bible studies to share the love of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The church is nurtured through Sunday services, Bible studies and other activities. It’s exciting to see the believers in the church use their gifts to serve Him.
Suzanne also teaches English to young people.
Primary Prayer Request:
Pray that God would continually bring us in direct contact with spiritually hungry people. Pray for spiritual growth and maturity among all the members in the church. Pray for godly Italian elders. Pray that God would bring talented Christian musicians to lead worship in our church.
