July 14th 2019 was the day that we no longer had any children under the age of 10. We officially have only ‘teens’. Although our little Miss Tessa only turned 10, it is quite a milestone for the Coghi clan.
We are so proud of our three kids and so grateful for the gift they are to our family. They are keeping us busy and on our toes and teach us every day what it means to parent in a multi cultural, multi lingual family!!!
God provided for Luca to attend the SST in Tyler, Texas. A missions and training program for teens between the ages of 13-17. Gioela was not able to attend this year due to much work at school, but Luca is enjoying himself as we have not heard much so we like to say “no news, good news, he is having fun”. This photo taken by SST staff proofs it:
Gioela (our 16 year old) started picking up ballet two months ago. Something she has been wanting to do for a while now and we finally decided that this was something she would really enjoy. Well on July 19th with her dance school she formed part of the first performance and it was so beautiful, it made us both cry. She is growing up really fast and it is beautiful to see how much she enjoys this. Here a little photo glimpse of that time:
Our little Tessa had a week long birthday as we were all here and there and is now officially enter into her teen years. Time is going by to quickly, but we are enjoying every stage.
The celebrations have come to an end. This weekend Giacomo will travel to Texas to pick Luca back up and make sure he goes back to school next week.
Our days are filled with preparations for growth, a YWAM Conference coming in September, Mar preparing for leading the Discipleship Training School in September as well as a trip to Cartagena Colombia from August 3-9 for the University of the Nations international. Promoting our YWAM University in Latin America and serving the wide YWAM Body in our region of the world.
What a joy to serve Jesus in this way and spread His love around the globe mobilizing, equipping and sending a new generation into the world.
Till next time….
