Entrust’s Corrie McCann served the Lord in Italy prior to coming to Entrust to direct Women-to-Women Ministry Training (WWMT). Corrie and other WWMT women now travel regularly to this country to facilitate WWMT’s core ministry modules with key women leaders in local churches. First-generation women are now training second-generation women across the country.
SITES: Basically the whole country. Just a few highlights – St. Peter’s Basilica, the Colosseum, Pompeii, Venice, Milan, Tuscany.
CUISINE: Pasta. Need we say more? OK. Pesto Genovese – the World Championship of Pesto Genovese is held every two years in Genoa. Panzenella – Tuscan bread salad. Caponata – Sicilian eggplant dish. Gelato – ice cream, Italian-style.
CELEBRITIES: Michelangelo, Raphael, Galileo, da Vinci, Christopher Columbus, Andrea Bocelli,
Sophia Loren, Roberto Benigni, Gioachino Rossini, Luciano Pavarotti, Giorgio Armani
SPIRITUAL CLIMATE: as home to Vatican City and Roman Catholicism, nearly the entire country is culturally Catholic. However, as in much of Europe, post-modernism and other factors are leading to disenfranchisement with the church. About 1.1% of Italians are born-again Christians.
PRAY FOR: Corrie McCann and the Entrust team — Sherri, Sara, Cristina and a new facilitator joining in autumn 2017, Marina. Pray for a new training system the team hopes to launch in southern Italy in autumn 2017. Pray for Debbie Suits, a good friend of Entrust, who is taking the lead in developing that training.
