Greetings from Rome (my layover before returning home to Milan)!
Although I am always ready for the next adventure, I have to say that leaving Malta is one of the hardest things I’ve had to do in a long time. Whenever I leave my family, I know that I’ll see them again before the year is out. But in Malta I was very aware of how close we had grown as a team. And although I will definitely come back to Malta, it will never be the same because the team won’t be there. We had come from all over the globe: Asia, Africa, North America, Australia, and of course, Europe. South America and Antarctica were the only continents not represented. Among the crew were newbies on their very first mission trip and seasoned missionaries who had raised children on the mission field.
The local believers were very hospitable, just as they had been described in the book of Acts. Malta is incredibly beautiful, but it’s the beauty of the Lord and His presence that really took my breath away. God is good! And Malta can be seen as proof of His goodness!
