Impacting Italy

What do you get if you mix a bunch of Jesus loving young people, train them for four days, and send them into the streets of a nation that is wide open to the Gospel? We have just come back from two amazing weeks of Summer Team in Italy, and God has done great things.

Healing Outpouring

After five days of training in the north of Italy, we came down with around 70 young people to the city of Bari, in the south of Italy. After the first day of outreach, we found out that many young people there believed in Jesus, but had never experienced him personally, or understood why Jesus had died on the cross. It was the perfect environment for Jesus to manifest His love in healing the sick. One of the outreach groups prayed for a man in a wheelchair, having a leg shorter than the other. His sister exploded in tears when she saw the leg grow out in front of her very eyes. All of the people looking on gave their lives to Jesus. Other people were healed from bad eyesight, knee problems, and more…

One of my life’s best experiences

My best experience was the last night, for the very last streetmeeting that we had. After preaching the Gospel, I called for anyone with pain to come forth. At first no one came, but then a courageous lady with pain in both knees walked towards me. I prayed for her and Jesus totally healed her. Immediately one other old lady came, with pain in her back. Jesus also totally healed her, ad she left crying for joy. Five other people came, and all left healed. Then two guys came forward, one of them wearing a t-shirt with a big anarchy sign. Their words went straight my heart: “We don’t have pain anywhere in our bodies, but we have pain in our souls. What can we do?”. It was not so hard to explain the Gospel to them…

Photos and Videos

In addition to the testimonies above, so many lives have been changed, both the participants of the Summer Team or the people they met on the streets. It is such a blessing to see God in action! Here are some videos of what we did, and here are some photos from the whole trip.
