Listen to how there's a connection for love of ice cream between these brother ice cream shop owners and a missionary who shared ice cream with people who are poor or homeless.|Listen to how there's a connection for love of ice cream between these brother ice cream shop owners and a missionary who shared ice cream with people who are poor or homeless.

In this episode of Good and Decent, we tell two different stories that are connected by a love of ice cream. Our student worker, Ryan shares a story about his two cousins Joe and Gus Rancatore. The Rancatore brothers have made unique ice cream flavors since 1981, and both own a few ice cream shops. Both their dedicated regulars and first-timers can find joy, nostalgia, and unexpected delight in the one-of-a-kind ice cream flavors they create for their community.

Former Grotto video associate, Tara Kelly, shares another story that involves ice cream that she produced during her time on our team. Her friend Sadie was a missionary at A Simple House, where she had the opportunity to make connections with people who are poor or homeless. On hot summer days, one of her ways to connect with them was through ice cream.
