Dear Beloved in Christ Jesus,
Greetings and blessings from Frosinone, Italy.
We are just about to start our May outreach, a pre-campaign with Evangelist Dario Scuoppo who will be visiting some of our churches in the fellowship, to light our people up and get a fresh unction before we hit the streets and then have the main two days event in a large hall, which we rented from the city.
Then, right after this pre-campaign, we will have a minister from the USA (Tommy and Claudia Duncan), who will do training to our churches to teach us to express our faith in God, for healing and other miracles from God.
We believe that God is the same, yesterday, today and forever, and we believe that as He worked miracles in the past, He is willing to work them even today. The problem it’s our lack of faith and our reasoning, as Jesus Himself told His Disciples, when they could not deliver that epilepsy child. In that case, the reason for their failure was not God, nor their imperfection, but their lack of faith. Just as it’s today!
I almost got tempted to start preaching here, but I pray that in these last days, when especially the Church, is facing harsh attacks from the enemy, by attacking the young children and teachers at school, by teaching immoral and ungodly things, and many parents not being close enough to God and not strong enough to contrast the enemy in these situations, our families are breaking apart, and this was the goal of the enemy! Breaking the families apart (especially believers families), to lower the spiritual level of the churches. Jesus warned us about these things, but we didn’t pay enough attention!
Many parents are losing their jobs, and they don’t have the spiritual power and authority to resist the devil and make him flee away from them. Many single parents are in terrible spiritual and financial conditions, and many of them are not even going to church, where they could find help and encouragements. We receive many prayer requests, even from the US to Italy, but as I ask if their pastor or church knows of their problems, most of the time the response is that they are not going to church right now! The reasons they give are many, but none of them can really justify their staying away from our gathering together! That’s only a trick of the devil, to keep them away from the protection of the church.
In Italy, things are not better! The same devil in the USA is the same devil which is in Italy. Lately, we had an increase in numbers in the church, but three of them are single mothers, with children from different fathers. Without work, since Italy has a very high unemployment, and unfortunately, the rest of the church can’t do much to help, other than pray and ask God to work miracles, because this nation does not know God, and those who claim to believe in God, only believe in Him as a historic God.
Last week we also had the blessing to have an American family come here to stay and to help us in the ministry. They are Ben and April (his wife), and three children, from Colorado Junction, CO. They are settling down, and I am sure they have already found out how expensive life in Italy is, but we are sure that as God kept us here for the past thirty years, He can keep them as well. Please pray for them, and especially for the language, which is one of the most difficult part of ministering to the Italians, because very few Italian people understand English.
On our part, we know that each one of us could always do a little more than what we are already doing, but that seem not to be enough to reach and bring to salvation 60 Million of unsaved Italians. That’s why I believe God gave us many Brothers and Sisters around the world, so that we can pray for each other so that with Unity in the Body of Christ, we can make a strong wall against the enemy, and in the end, get the victory over him and his demons! This reminds me of the multiplication of the bread and the fishes by Jesus. They had very little. And the people were well over Ten Thousand, but by giving their little to the Lord and allowing Him to bless it, they were able to feed over ten thousand people.
Please continue to pray for us and for the Italian people, especially for the Politicians, who are melting this nation like Ice Cream, stealing from the poor people, to give to their own rich Cast! We are even trying to get food help, from the European Community, but so far, we are only getting the left over and the expired food, because the Caritas, which it’s a Catholic Institution, is getting all the best and fresh food as soon as it gets to the storages.
We love you, and we appreciate your sacrificial prayers and financial support. If you can do some more to help us, to help more unsaved and poor people, please do it as unto the Lord, and please pass the word around. Share our needs with your church friends and relatives.
God willing, between September 10th and November 10th, I will be traveling to the Eastern states of the USA, and if you haven’t already set up a date for my visit with your church, please do it as soon as possible, so I can complete my itinerary.
Again, thank you for your prayers and for your support, and may God richly bless you, your families and your church.
With much love in Christ Jesus, Your missionaries,
Abel & Anna Aureli, and family
