Would you please pray for us and for our finances?
I know that this financial crisis is affecting the whole world, but for a missionary family overseas support is vital, not only for the ministry, to reach new communities with the saving message of the Gospel, but for our survival as well.
Unfortunately, since this crisis, a few supporting individuals lost their job and a couple of supporting churches closed down, so we got to the point that right now we are losing around $ 600.00 of monthly support and we don't even have a single penny on our account. We also have a debt of $2.500.00 on our credit card! We have never been this bad in finances for the past 24 years, since we began our ministry in Italy. So, please pray for us and for our finances. We don't want to give up and surrender to the attack of the enemy!
If you like to see something about our ministry, you can watch our Photo Show at: http://it.youtube.com/watch?v=sNAsWI15S-s, or you can visit our site at: www.operitaly.org, and also you can join our Five-Fold Ministries Group at: http://five-fold-ministeries.ning.com/profile/ApostleAbelAureli.
The enemy knows that in order to carry on our ministry we need to raise support from overseas because contrary to the general belif, in Italy there are only 0.5% of born Again believers, and many Catholics consider us a "cult", like the J.W., the Mormons or the Moonies!
Again, I do understand the bat times are in the USA as well, but the Cananian woman responding to Jesus, said: "even the dogs, feed themselves from the crumbs which fall from the table of their owners"! So, we are not asking for what belongs to your church, to your missionaries or to your family, but for the crumbs! We are doing what Jesus Himself told us to do, and that's to "ask, to seek and to knock", then it's up to you to respond as the Lord leads you. So, thank you for your prayers and for any help you will be able to provide.
