As well as enjoying a lovely time with friends and colleagues here in Torre Pellice a few of us introduced the carol singing tradition into life here. Along with Jill and Anna (our OM colleagues) we were accompanied by a local couple of believers as we sang in a local bar (ironically called the Britannia!!) and also in front of the local RC church as it finished th Midnight Mass. In both places we were warmly applauded and offered drinks for our throats!!
For the couple with us this was a new experience and one which they seemed to thoroughly enjoy as evidenced by the fact that they shared their experience with the whole church on 26th December! A wonderful way to spend Christmas Eve and we pray that the Lord will use it in the coming weeks and months as we bring our experience of Him to this community.
