June/July Update

Greetings Friends & Family!

I just wanted to quickly touch base with you about where I am at in my preparations for moving to Italy next Spring:

Currently I have less than 10 months before I leave for Sicily! I know this time will fly by and April will be here before we know it. For the time being, I have picked up where I left off in the winter with studying Italian via Rosetta Stone and am also working through some really helpful online training with Christian Associates. I also started a blog where I am posting several stories a month about how God has proven Himself faithful both in my life and in the lives of others I know. If you haven’t already visited the site, please take a few minutes to check it out: faithfulstill.wordpress.com The last two stories I posted (“Accidental Arsonist” and “Immeasurably More”), are two of my favorites!

Here are a few prayer requests:

  • Progress and growth in language learning and cross-cultural training
  • Opportunities to share with others about Italy as a mission field and the organizations I am serving with
  • Seeking God’s guidance daily with determination to obey
  • Wisdom for time-management, priorities, health and finances

Thank you so much for your prayers!!

I hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer and whatever season in life you find yourself in, I hope it is one filled with joy and peace in Christ.

*If you are led to give financial support, checks can be made out and sent to Hessel Church, just be sure to include my name on the memo line (5060 Hessel Ave, Sebastopol, CA 95472).

** Within the next 6 months, I need to raise $800 in my Christian Associates account to cover training costs. Donations to my CA account can be made online. From CA’s homepage (http://christianassociates.org/), click on the “Donate” button in the upper right-hand corner. Under ”Missionaries and Projects” please click on “Missionaries” and then click on “Cummings, Hillary – 40383”

He is Faithful Still,
