We love Christmas! Looking back on all that God has given us this year has been a humbling task to say the least. As we celebrate the living God coming to dwell with us, we have been deeply moved at how profoundly we've experienced his nearness this year.
As we draw closer to the new year, we are praying for new partners to join us in the work of establishing Gospel-centered churches in Rome and across Southern Europe.
Thank you for praying and partnering with us as we trust the Lord to build his church here in Rome!

Rome International Church seeks to lead transient people to find their lasting purpose in Jesus Christ. Here are two ways we are looking to serve the most needy of our international friends:
1. Rome International Church is partnering with a women's resource center nearby that is meeting the physical needs of refugee families. These families (often single mothers) are considering abortions and seeking help to provide for their children. The center has asked for diapers, towels, blankets, sheets, and more.
2. Joel Nafuma refugee center has asked if our church could provide support to feed a number of refugees Saturday mornings. They've said about €55 a week will provide a good meal for those who otherwise would not have one.
As a church we are committed to doing what we can. Would you come alongside us in sacrificially giving to meet these needs?
You can give to RIC here: http://ibcmworld.com/join-us/donations/
You can give through our mission here: www.cten.org/lorenholland
In either case, indicate your gift is for refugee relief. All gifts are tax-deductible.
We are transient people who find our home in Christ. We write about living overseas, doing ministry with family, traveling, missions, schooling, favorite books, and why we are here on this earth.
