Mattei, Manuel & Cristhina
Ministry: Ministry with victims of sex trafficking
Cristhina was born in Colombia and moved to the USA with her family when she was 11 years old. She has a bachelor’s degree in social work and interned at a non-profit helping victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse.
She moved to Bologna in September of 2013 to serve as a missionary for Vite Trasformate (VT). She has been serving ever since and is dedicated full-time to the ministry. She also helps in other organizational aspects at her church Nuova Vita. Cristhina is passionate about sharing her faith and discipling women. Her favorite thing about VT is one-on-one interaction with the Treasures and spending time getting to know them. She hopes that God will continue giving her the opportunity to serve in VT for many years to come and see people transformed by the Gospel.
