Praise God for the evangelism project in Florence, Italy, being led by Rudy Kuijer (CLC Global Mobilizer) and CLC Italy.

The bookshop relocated in 2018. The new location is good, and improvements to the interior were made straight away but permission for using it as a Christian bookshop took much longer than expected. Praise the Lord the situation started to resolve itself later in the year, and we are trading again.
