Hello everybody! My name is Francesco Spatola. I met the Lord 35 years ago in Heilbronn (Germany). During the time I was working as a salesman, I met some people who invited me to a Biblical Movie Night for Italian people. The movie was “Daniel in the lions’ den”. On the following days, I often thought about my life. Some time later, I went to a meeting in Stuttgart, where there was an Italian missionary: Remo Dosi. On that night the subject was “You must be born again” and “The need to be grafted in Jesus Christ”. It was all so clear to me. I had to give Jesus my life, and so I did. I am happy to follow Him, even if for several years I had to drive more than 100 km to go listening the Word of God. Now I live in Ludwigshafen am Rhein, I attend the Italian Church with my family. I wish you resign yourself to the Lord and that we can meet soon to thank God for His Love.
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life”. (John 3:16)
Hello everybody, my name is Enza C. , I am married and I have 2 daughters. I was born in a family of believers, but I hadn’t decided myself yet to follow Jesus. On a afternoon, the Soccios came at my sister’s place, who already was a believer. They talked about the Lord, and it touched my heart. I heard a voice that pushed me to pray and accept Jesus in my life. Then I opened up my mouth and I prayed the Lord among the tears. I’m attending the meetings for four years. Now I want to tell everybody that I am a child of God. In the Bible (John 1:12) we read: “But those who did welcome him, those who believed in his name,he authorized to become God’s children”.
Hello I’m Nicola T. I’m 55 years old. I’ve been married for 37 years now and I have four daughters. I was born in Militello (Catania, Sicily) where I’ve lived until the age of 18, before I moved to Germany. I was born in a Christian family and as a child I used to attend the church with my mother. I’ve been a “privileged” guy. Around my 14-15, I began to go my own way. I frequented my friends and I liked to have fun with them, like every boy would. I lived my life, but there was something that made me stand out from anybody else; but I couldn’t understand what it was. In 1978 I emigrated to Germany. I was alone at the beginning, but later my wife and my daughter came along. There began a new chapter of my life. All of a sudden I was alone, with a family to care of and a lot of responsibilities. Thank God, we succeeded in goingon even though I missed my relatives. The years passed by and I looked for something real and important inside of me.
I was born in Gioia del Colle on the 20th October 1976 and I grew up with football at home because my father loves this sport, therefore he passed this down to me.
Having the skills and making the most of them, in 1994 I got into the professional youth team in Bari, where my career began. After the first years in C19, with the Pistoiese and Prato teams, I was bought by Chievo; subsequently I was lent to the Reggiana team and then to Modena, with whom I won the C1 championship. After the success of Modena, I went back to Verona, in serie A and so, with a little patience, I got to play in the "football Olympus", thanks to God. In fact, during the two seasons in Chievo I was the protagonist, so that Mr Giovanni Trapattoni called me to the national team.
