Your gifts are still needed to complete this purchase and you can follow the above link to our mission to send in your donation

Your prayers and GOD’s power were on great display on APRIL 18th, as the city council of the city of MELITO, met to discuss and vote to change the actual zoning law from “Industrial” to what we really need, which is “SOCIO-RELIGIOUS”.

We were concerned because these types of changes are neither easy nor certain, as oftentimes there are many different types of opposition.
We sat there as they deliberated and then, you will hear the moderator ask for the vote. He askes first: “Abstentions? (nothing…silence) Opposed? (the same) In favor? ”

Then you will see their hands shoot up faster than you would see a group of people ask for free lotto tickets! And then our church erupts in applause.
So moving was the moment that the city councilmen and women, also got up and started CLAPPING!!!
W now have the final approval!!!

“Well, we are back in Napoli and are so encouraged by the continued support for this ministry, and in particular for the purchase of the new church structure in the city of MELITO. This building is in one of most difficult areas in all of Napoli…in fact the pope was just here in Napoli and decided to visit the area where our church will begin it’s ministry very soon. In an article from EURONEWS.COM Pope Francis has visited one of Italy’s most dangerous neighborhoods in the city of Naples. Scampia has been described as a forgotten, crumbling slum in the heart of Western Europe. It is essentially under the control of one of Italy’s oldest crime organizations, the Camorra.

“Corruption stinks and a corrupt society stinks! So go ahead and clear your souls and clean up the city and clean up society so that there is no longer that stink of corruption,” Francis said.
He was speaking in the shadow of a dilapidated sail boat-shaped housing project known as Le Vele, so dangerous that even police are sometimes afraid to enter, according to locals.The pope urged residents of the blighted area, which has often been the battleground of Camorra clans fighting each other for control of drug trafficking and extortion rackets, not to let criminals rob them of their hope.So please continue to pray for us as we seek to raise the remaining funds needed to purchase this building right in the heart of this battle zone!

Please post address of hotel. We are required to have name and address of where we are staying on customs form, however I know from previous visits papers haven't be checked 😀 THANK YOU
Eager to get there !!! ❤️
