Praise the Name of Jesus! …and that is a proclamation
There isn’t a more powerful greeting than ” pace di Cristo! ”
Italian for the peace of Christ be with you!
Grace and peace be multiplied in you,
in Jesus’ Name!
Greetings from Turin, Italy. The Italian State is called ” Piemonte ” ( Piedmont ).
The third most important city in Italy.
Wikipedia says… Turin is a city and an important business and cultural centre in northern Italy, capital of the Piedmont region, located mainly on the left bank of the Po River, in front of Susa Valley and surrounded by the western Alpine arch…. The city used to be a major European political centre, being Italy’s first capital city in 1861 and being home to the House of Savoy, Italy’s royal family.
I was born in Venezuela 55 years ago. I am blessed by being married 26 years to a beautiful lady from here, Turin, Italy that was living in Venezuela at the time I met her in 1987. I lived 39 years of my life in the United States. And I came to Turin, August 1st 2008 following God’s call. We started meeting new faces since day one, from Turin to Ravenna, to Sicily… We met here in Turin a lady, Jannet, our first soul won to the Lord in this city… Starting from our apartment-home, we gathered daily, the number grew to 35 shortly… All baptized in Jesus’ Name according to Acts 2:38.
We have been working in Turin, Italy ever since…
To today, January 2015, 6 years and 6 months…
To this date, we have shared the Acts 2:38 message to well over 2,500 souls locally.
About 900+ have visited our places of worship, houses of prayer. And perhaps 600+ have eaten a meal at my home.
About 130+ have responded to the message! Today, our congregation has about 80 regulars, faithful to His Word and Truth in Jesus’ Name! We gathered initially at my home, then we went to a small hall, then to a Hotel Hall, then to a bigger hall, and now we are in our 4th place in Jesus’ Name! Growing as the Lord adds…
I am blessed by the working leadership of two ministers, and 4 deacons that forms the local ministry and leadership under our pastorate.
We are blessed to be a part of the AAFCJ fellowship and our hearts for Jesus are open to all who preach His Word in His sincerity and Truth starting with the Acts 2:38 message. Holiness – true separation is part of our daily lives, our doctrinal principles are firm and unchangeable.
We love Italy with a passion! We love our work, we love JESUS!
During the 2006 Winter Olympics, Turin became the center of the world, the theme was: passion lives here! We have adopted that theme in Jesus’ Name!
Since 2012, we are also working in the city of Milan, Italy’s number 2 city… the fifth in Europe, the Lord has led us to about 60 souls there. We have been present every week ever since!
God has been GOOD to us, God has been good to Italy, God is good ALL the time! He Is!
Feel free to say hello, send a greeting, a word of encouragement, a Word from God…
In Jesus’ Name, we say …pace di Cristo!
One thing about languages, my mother tongue is Spanish from Venezuela, but I also lived 39 years of my life in the United States of America where English became my first language…
I came to Christ ” in English “, if you can understand that… and for 6.5 years more less, I’ve been learning Italian… with so many local dialects, to my region and to the rest of Italy, it has not been an easy ride for me… but I trust God will continue to help me as time passes by to speak the necessary in His perfect timing all the time while on this earth…
we love people – our hearts burn for the lost…
