In this episode, we share a sermon preached by Jesse for our brothers and sisters at New Life Church of Vicenza; a church for the US Army soldiers serving in Italy. Today we conclude the first chapter of Mark as we back up a bit to consider the demonic activity against Jesus' ministry as well as aspects of prayer for the Christian. We then dive into the drama of Jesus' encounter with a leper and learn how to properly come to Jesus and go away from Jesus in obedience. We conclude with 4 keys to a Joyful Life of ObedienceLinks:GivingAmazon Smile LinkOpportunities to ServePMc SpeakpipeThanks and God bless!Like Jesus driven to His cross so we drive ourselves to the singular task of the edification (planting) of Biblical churches in Italy.Support the show (https://www.practicalmissions.org/donate)

In this special episode, we share a conversation with a friend in Italy whom the Lord delivered out of the Jehovah's Witness cult.

In this episode, we share from 2 PMc blog posts in which we share recommended resources. In our day of constant media bombardment, it is of great importance that we are intentional and careful about what we give our attention to. Just like not every book in the Christian bookstore is worth your time and attention, so not every "Christian" podcast is worth your time and attention. Links:PMc Blog Post - Podcast RecommendationsPMc Blog Post - Podcast Recommendations - a few moreEpisode on YoutubePractical Missions CohortPMc Outreach Podcast in Italy - Vera VitaAmazon Smile LinkLike Jesus driven to His cross so we drive ourselves to the singular task of the edification (planting) of Biblical churches in Italy.Support the show (https://www.practicalmissions.org/donate)

In this episode, we read a short section of J.D. Payne's book titled, Apostolic Church Planting. He points out how pioneering contexts in cultures with little to no gospel presence need to be understood differently in regards to expectations of pastors. We then share 3 ways from our experience that an apostolic planter can be wrongly understood by pastoral planters.Links:Book - Apostolic Church Planting on AmazonEpisode on YoutubePractical Missions CohortPMc Outreach Podcast in Italy - Vera VitaAmazon Smile LinkLike Jesus driven to His cross so we drive ourselves to the singular task of the edification (planting) of Biblical churches in Italy.Support the show (https://www.practicalmissions.org/donate)

In this episode, we share 2 book recommendations for individuals and families. One will give you a good history of the work of missionaries over the centuries (great for Sunday evenings), and the other is like a handbook for missions (great for anyone getting personally involved in missions). We find it to be extremely practical. We recommend it as a must-read for all our future missionaries.Links:Book: From Jerusalem to Irian Jaya by Ruth TuckerBook: On Being a Missionary by Thomas HaleAmazon Smile LinkSpecial Needs - Media Ministry Equipment, Baby ItemsEpisode on YoutubePMc Outreach Podcast in Italy - Vera VitaLike Jesus driven to His cross so we drive ourselves to the singular task of the edification (planting) of Biblical churches in Italy.Support the show (https://www.practicalmissions.org/donate)
