My name is Cristhina Danies and I will be moving to Bologna, Italy as an IMB Hands-On Missionary in September 2013.

Six years ago, God placed a desire and a passion in my heart for Italy. Not only for the Italians but specifically for women and children that are caught up in slavery and human trafficking. Now it’s time to go and I am excited for this adventure with Him!

My main role in Bologna will be to work alongside the church of Nuova Vita in their social justice program called Vite Trasformate. My job will be to minister to the needs of the individuals caught up in human trafficking offering them support along with the local body of believers. Most of those affected are women from Eastern European countries.

Many of these women are trapped in a dire situation with few or no options. Vite Trasformate’s goal is to end prostitution in Italy through the transformation of lives by the Gospel demonstrated through acts of love and support. 

The Vite Trasformate ministry will consist of:

  • Doing bi-weekly street outreach – The team has      identified areas in Bologna where they have found women involved in human      trafficking (Ladies). We speak to them and give them a small card with contact      information and a message from the ministry.
  • Following up with the Ladies we met on the outreach to      develop relationships.
  • Meeting with the Ladies during the week - discipling      them, doing bible studies, and helping them with their immediate needs      (caring for their children, etc).
  • Raising awareness of Human Trafficking by participating      in conferences, churches, events, etc.
  • Networking and sharing resources with other      organizations and people around Italy and Europe who are working in this      field.
  • Doing research and studying the curriculum that will be      used.

There will be other ministries through Nuova Vita church where I will be serving throughout my time in Bologna.

As an IMB missionary I will also be responsible for assisting in volunteer teams from SBC churches working in the Bologna area.
