The Office

The work of the Milano Italy missionaries grows with each passing week. There are 124 anziani and 54 sorelle. That number is expected to increase over the summer. The missionaries share the gospel in northern Italy with more than half of the 60.72 million Italian residents. Italy supports 100 congregations with about 25,000 members.

The boundaries of the mission stretch from areas South of Sienna and Ancona to the northern borders of Italy and the Ticino Province of Switzerland, which speaks Italian.
One mission office coordinates missionary endeavors. The office is located in Opera, a small attractive town outside of Milan. The English translation of Opera is work.
