It's happening in Florence!

If you happen to pass there at 6:30 pm on a Sunday, you can hear music coming out of the door at Via de' Benci 9, in Florence.
What is this, a party? A community center? Some cultural group?
You see them enter, all these international students of the universities and colleges of Florence. On the door you see written, “Florence Gospel Fellowship International.”
Your curiosity piqued, you poke your head through the doorway just to take a look and find young men and women singing in English, some standing with their arms outstretched, others sitting with eyes closed, while still others have clasped hands together.
You step inside and feel the welcoming atmosphere wrapping around you like a warm blanket, finding yourself trying to follow along and even join in with the heart-warming contemporary gospel music.
Then you hear that they are telling their “life stories,” sharing what God has done in their lives recently that truly changed them. It’s true. These are those same international students you see walking to school every other day of the week. They travel thousands of kilometers to study abroad for six months in our city, wanting to learn about our rich culture, history and traditions.
But, through their own lives, they encourage us to rediscover the roots of our Christian faith - the faith that has inspired so many artistic masterpieces which have made not just our city but our entire nation famous around the world.

India needs Jesus
From Rev. James Smith

I have a very special opportunity I would like to share with you. As many of you know, Natalie and I had the opportunity to go to West Bengal, India back in February of this year. While we were there, we were able to place 11 water wells in a few of the villages where they did not have clean drinking water. We were also able to donate milk goats to some of the poorest families in other villages. Several of you contributed towards this effort which allowed us to accomplish much more than we originally were going to be able to do. I cannot express with words, the deep appreciation the people there displayed at the kindness we were able to show them though these important humanitarian gifts.
