Blogging from Europe

5:54 pm Uncategorized

BLC community, I am in Rome, Italy as part of a European tour that my wife and I are taking.  I wanted to write from Europe because there are so many Europeans who actually subscribe to this website!  We’ve already been to Paris, France and we just arrived in Rome today from Capri, Italy which is an island that many tourists visit.  From here it’s on to Athens, Greece before returning home to Houston.  Here in Rome, we passed by Circus Maximus, which is where I learned that Christians were devoured by animals or covered in tar and lit while spectators cheered on.  Christians were tortured in this way simply because they believed in Christ.  This really made me think about how we sometimes take for granted that we can believe in Christ and worship Him freely now.  No matter what country you are in, don’t take for granted the freedom to worship.  So many Christians died just for believing like we believe today.  This trip to Europe is a blessing for me.  I would encourage everyone to pick at least one thing you always wanted to do and then try your best to do it.  It doesn’t have to be extravagant…it can be something simple.  Just do one thing.  This life is short and we must enjoy it while we are here on Earth.

    Hi,
    I am going to Europe next year to study abroad for the entire academic school year. I will be staying in Spain(Granada) One of my fears is that they will not have any Christian Churches there. Do you know of any places to worship in Spain?

However it is monumental b/c I made a vow to the Lord and I want to fulfill that vow before its too late. Again thank You for sharing your exp.
