The work of UCB in Italy is in the early stages. A group has been established to reach the 61 million people of Italy with the Gospel message.
At this point UCB is looking for interested parties to contact us to see how this project can be supported and grown further. The Word for Today is now being translated into Italian and passionate supporters are needed to distribute the devotional.
We have had an interest for some time to begin translating The Word for Today into the Italian language. With support from Italian Christians we have prayed for the opportunity to tell millions of Italians the good news of the Gospel that is found in Jesus.
