The Fourth of July is always an interesting holiday to celebrate away from home since it is not an international holiday. Today, we celebrated with a trip to the beach here in Catania. Some of us played on a floating obstacle course in the water. It’s amazing to watch as our team draws nearer to each other and is coming alive in our unity.

Enjoying the bonfire with our Italian friends


We ended the day with a bonfire at the church we are partnering with. The church is strategically placed near one of the Military bases here, so we were hoping to get a good view of the fireworks from the base; however, instead of man-made fireworks, we got to see God-made fireworks as Mt. Etna, Europe’s largest active volcano, erupted. It was a spectacular sight to see! A reminder that even creation screams out praise to the Living God!
