A Climb Worth Taking (Part 1)

Dear Readers,

As you've most likely seen by reading our brothers blogs, so much has been happening up here lately, especially with regards to the ministry! There has been purely amazing experiences, with new studies started....and tear jerkers with our progressive studies, as they continue the greatest journey Jehovah could have set before them (lookout for part 2 of this blog).

Many of our studies here as you may already know by reading previous blogs, are refugees. There are two main camps which we go to, to study with them. We refer to them here as the "Upper Camp" , & "Lower Camp". The first camp while here last year that we started going to, was the upper camp. Maybe you've heard of the walk it takes to get there, but I'd thought I'd make a little video showing what it's like. There is a bus that goes up but it RARELY comes, so if you need to study at a certain time the bus doesn't come...stretch dem legs! So here it is, hope you enjoy!....Oh yeah, and be sure to turn your volume up for this one :) ..............

When we did this we had been in service all day, and it was about 6 o'clock, and to be honest I was tired, and wouldn't have mind going to sleep already! But I'm so glad I didn't. It is quite a walk to get there, but it's ALWAYS worth it. The result of reaching the top is as if you've found a Gold mine! Because of how great the studies have been. And the view overlooking the city.... with the cool breeze flowing by... as you discuss Jehovahs words to them... ahh, "Doesn't get better than this". Definitely a climb worth taking. (Be sure to check in for part 2 of this post, on what happened when we got to the Upper Camp on this same day)

  3. It's one of my favorite spots in all of Bologna, so much good memories here, and yes can't wait to tell everyone once everything gets going in the college!
