We have some dear friends who are from Italy.
There son, Simone, has gone back to Italy for the summer
to spend time with the family and learn some Italian.
Simone is staying in Asti, which is near to Alessandria, the second city where Robert served.
So this past p-day Simone took the train and went to Ravenna to see Robert.
They spent about 4 hours together doing some sight seeing and having lunch together.
Simone said that he was the same Robert who loves to laugh and joke around,
however, he said that it was obvious that Robert was a missionary
because he has a different air about him.
He did say that Robert looked well and happy
and the he LOVES his mission, but does miss home.
Thank you Simone for taking the time to go see Robert
and for taking a few pictures and letting us know how he is!
We so appreciate it!
