We ran to Termini, the main train station in Rome, to meet up the other 29 teams out all day seeing the sights of Italy’s capital and sharing Christ to make sure we caught the 9:07 back to our base, for the final day of our Transform training week — readying 300 to move out in mission that weekend around the Mediterranean.
We found hundreds watching our African brothers and sisters sing and dance. Then “Amazing Grace” broke out. Smiling, taking pictures and videoing — people were loving it.
All day I had carried a gospel illustration in my back pack looking for an opportunity to preach Christ in the “Eternal City” and now the opportunity found me as I stood in their midst, showing people how they also could begin a friendship with God. Grabbing tracts, gospels and CD’s — the people seemed eager to know.
The next morning I heard that our 9:07 had been pushed back to 9:27. I guess God had wanted people to catch more than the train that night.
And for our teams! To catch a glimpse of how he to about to use them from one end of the Mediterranean in Portugal to the other end in Lebanon.
Thank you Richard!
This prayer tool has been extremely helpful.
I was there when you explained it the day we went out for Rome. The Lord nudged my heart to wake up early for prayer and I knew He had something important for me and it was this super helpful prayer tool! Now I am ordering some for my friends and family.
God has used this to encourage my heart, now I can look back at my week and see how God is moving in and through me, beautiful. Now I can praise Him on a regular basis.
I am not one to remember many details in fact it is a struggle to remember yesterday, so this has been extremely helpful with remembering what to thank God for and so much more 🙂

A sat back, overwhelmed, ‘You love me and will never not love me’!
“Is that what you are saying Lord?” as I read, “Your unfailing love is better than life itself”.
“If you knew, “I asked my honey, “‘that you are loved by me and will never not be loved by me,’ “would that be enough?” “Absolutely,” she exclaimed.
It’s the greatest thing in life, ‘to know that you are loved and will never not be loved.’
Loved that way by someone.
Loved that way by the Lord.
Praise for my team and all the conversations and prayer with people on the packed main street of Malta today. Tonight I take them through their first all night of prayer.
Tomorrow I will help take 320 young people in our Transform training conference this week out on the streets of to share Christ in Rome – one of the great and needy cities of the world.
Please pray for hearts to be open.
My slogan: ” I’m scared, your scared, let’s be scared together.”
This will give the teams a taste of what they will experience as the move out this Saturday in 40 teams for 2-3 weeks of outreach in the 20+ nations around the Mediterranean.
