Between 5th and 6th April the beautiful region of Abruzzo was devastated by a terrible earthquake. More than 150 people died, the whole town of L'Aquila was severely damaged, and many villages were destroyed.
In the midst of sorrow, the Italian Evangelical Alliance (AEI) urges believers in Jesus Christ around the world to pray for the thousands of people who are injured, those who mourn their loved ones, and those who have lost everything. We ask Almighty God to give comfort to those who suffer and to quicken their hearts to respond to what has happened so that they can trust Him and Him alone for their life.The two Evangelical churches in L'Aquila were also affected. We have news of severe damages to church buildings and homes of believers. We are in pain for a little Romanian girl who died. Her parents survived and they belong to the Assembly of God.
