The young Elders met a man while they were tracting. His name is Otello Turci. He is a sculptor and works in clay and wood. He made the molds for a nativity set that he has been making and selling for several years. We met him and he made a set for us. For payment he would only accept an amount to reimburse him for the materials. He said that God has given him a talent and he feels that he must share that talent with others. He did a work in wood that he donated to Pope John Paul II and the Pope had a picture taken with him. Turci gave us a book of some of his works and signed it for us. We had been looking for an authentic Italian nativity so we were very happy to get this one.
