Journey with us to see lives transformed in Italy.
Stefano and Erica Illiano live in Italy, and iconic nation with two alarming realities. First, less than 1% of people in Italy know Christ in a personal relationship as their Savior. Second, Italy is a hub for sex trafficking where thousands of victims are trapped by exploitation.
The Illianos have been part of the anti-trafficking movement in Italy since 2013 as leaders in a strategic nationwide network of abolitionist. Their vision is to see safe housing established where they can walk alongside survivors of trafficking during their recovery and see them come to know their true value in Christ.
God is writing His redemption story for Italy. Stefano and Erica are privileged to be a part of it but can’t do it alone. Will you stand with them to see lives transformed by the love of Jesus Christ? Would you prayerfully consider partnering with them? It would be an honor to journey together in this fight for freedom to the glory of God!
