Mattei, Manuel & Cristhina
Ministry: Ministry with victims of sex trafficking
We are Manuel and Cristhina and we met in our local church Nuova Vita in Bologna. We have been married since October 2015. Manuel was born and raised in Bologna. Cristhina was born in Colombia and also lived half of her life in the United States. We are basically a tri-cultural couple!
Together we serve the Lord in different areas of our church. Manuel teaches to middle school students, helps welcome new people during Sunday with a warm cup of coffee, and serve with Vite Trasformate in the job training program. Cristhina moved to Bologna in September of 2013 to serve as a missionary for the ministry of Vite Trasformate. She has served since then and is dedicated to it full-time.
As a family, we desire to serve the Lord and prepare for church planting. Our vision is to be part of a church planting group to take the Gospel to areas in Italy that have yet to hear the Gospel of salvation.
