Dear RIC friends,

My family and I had a wonderful visit to Israel this past weekend and we can't wait to share more with you about this awesome experience. Thanks so much to Khurum for preaching. 

CONGRATULATIONS to Davis and Immaculeta on the birth of their daughter Brightness last week.

CHURCH WIDE RETREAT MAY 5-6: WE STILL HAVE SOME SPACE! A 50 euros deposit is due SUNDAY.  WE NEED YOU TO SIGN UP! The registration forms will be at the service Sunday or you can email me to get it at romeinternationalchurch@gmail.com The speakers will be the new pastors of RIC, Chris Hendrix and Loren Holland. The cost is 85 euros per adult (those 11 and older), 60 euros for those 4-10 years old. Free under 4. This includes the room for Friday night as well as 4 meals (Dinner Friday, plus breakfast, lunch and dinner Saturday) The retreat will start with dinner on Friday and following the dinner Saturday we will all make our way home, hoping to leave the retreat center no later than 9pm.
