Throughout the book of Philippians, Paul celebrates the unique Gospel partnership he shared with the Philippian church. Paul opens the books by explaining that even his prayers were marked with thankfulness and joy because of their partnership in the Gospel. And in the closing of his book, Paul again praises the Philippians for being the only church who partnered with him, joined his suffering, and met his needs. In the Great Commission, both "senders" and "goers" matter. It's our privilege to partner with the Staniscis to spread the Gospel in Italy. Lucio's birthday is on Thursday, and the Staniscis are our Seeds missionaries for the month. All these seemed like good reasons to remind you about the Staniscis' ministry and a few key prayer requests.
