Year One: Complete
One year ago, today, our family stepped off an airplane and into a new life. We have restored a home, started learning a new language, adapted to a new culture, befriended our neighbors, become recognized through-out town, completed piles of government paperwork and waited in countless lines dealing with government officials. We could not have done it without the prayer and support from our church family and all the gracious help from the Scorziellos! This year has been a success!
Italy is known as the “missionary graveyard.” The turnover rate for missionaries and missions agencies is one of the highest in the world! In general, only 10% of missionaries return to Italy after their first term (2-years). So, we’re halfway to our first goal: survival.
