To gain any ground in influence or have a voice in Italian culture, people must make time to invest in the relationships with Italians. The Worthy family has spent 15 years in ministry in Italy as International Mission Board missionaries. Pray today that many Italians will come to faith in Christ.

God has come for them and there is HOPE in Jesus Christ.
