My name is Pietro, I come from a town named CattolicaEraclea, Sicily. When I was younger, I was active in the church, but inside of me I was afraid to die, and I was scared of what my future could bring. Through Schembre Vincenzo’sfamily, I began to attend the evangelical meetings and to know the Word of God. I gave my life to Jesus Christ, I recognized Him as my personal Savior and Lord. In my opinion, it was something good, I was happy, my parents didn’t disagree. Someone talked against me, but my father answered: “What’s better: stealing or going to an Evangelical Church?”. After a while, I left Sicily for work reasons to go in Germany, to Ludwigshafen. I have been attending the meetings for some years, I got married, and then I abandoned the community for 13 years (I used to work the whole time and the Lord was not in 1st place in my life anymore). So I recognized that I was no more happy or proud of myself, I had no more interests, I felt empty, sad, troubled. The Lord used GaspareIacono to bring me back to Him. Now I am happy to attend the community and I see how the Lord takes care of me. Recently I had surgery and I have almost lost my life. But I thank Jesus Christ because of His intervention after 3 weeks of sufferings. If you feel like I felt in some aspects of my life some year ago being away from God, if you feel like you have a huge burden killing your heart, you should know that what you’re experiencing is the burden of the sin. Every human being was born with sin, but remember and believe: “God so loved the world that he gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him won’t perish but will have eternal life”.
“I sought the Lord and he answered me.He delivered me from all my fears.”
