We're still fine, but...
Rebecca, Violet and I are in good health and spirits, though the situation in Italy has gotten worse. I think Italy is now number 2 in the world when it comes to confirmed cases of Coronavirus. As a result the government has decreed serious restrictions in movements and canceled most activities. There is some confusion as to what that means, but we know for certain that the church is not able to meet, and we are not permitted to travel from region to region. Most places, like gyms, museums, and theaters are closed until at least April and students will not return to school until then either. Restaurants are allowed to open, but must close by 6:00 PM.
I want to reiterate that we are in good health and are not worried about getting sick. However, we ask that you continue to pray about the situation. Please pray that cool heads will prevail and the situation will not result in any civil disorder. Also, please pray that we will be able to let people see Christ in us and have opportunities to share Him with others.
We will update you as often as we can. God bless each one of you!
