Welcome to your new home
and the Lord's Italian vineyard.

New Missionary Training/reunion

The most important starting point
of a new missionary is
their desire to serve.

The most important reasons for that desire
is the love they have for their 
Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.

We are very blessed to have this group of wonderful
new missionaries part of the
 la Missione Italiana di Milano.

We counsel together.  
We are grateful for the great responsibilities

They help to make our mission ...

 ...a mission of faith, a mission of miracles,
because
we are a mission of obedience and hard work.

July Zone Conferences - 2017

It's hot and humid
and the mosquitos are out,
but the missionaries of the Milan are undeterred

a better missionary.

President Allen spoke on the value of striving

Talents

We have each been given talents to bless the lives of others.
They are not always as visible as the artistic ability
of Anziano Simkins,
but they are every bit as valuable and glorious.
This ink drawing was a made for 
Presidente e' Sorella Allen.


This is Jesus Christ.
Of whom we testify.


Ci Vediamo Anz Johnson

Sometimes our plans are disrupted
by the necessity to "take care of health business".
Anziano Johnson is temporarily
home for surgery.  
Half his luggage was left behind.
It's a good sign we will see him again.
Speedy recovery, Anziano!!
