Watch Francesco’s story and see how God answered the petitions of our medical staff in Italy.

I was in a very big danger,” Francesco said.

He was suffering from COVID-19 and was in extremely poor health when he was admitted to the Samaritan’s Purse field hospital in Cremona, Italy, and placed in intensive care. Our dedicated team of medical personnel went to work treating his symptoms and also organised prayer for him.

“I couldn’t imagine so many people praying for me, for all this love around me,” he said.

Watch the video above for more on Francesco’s story and to find out why he says he’s “living proof” of Christ’s power.

As Christians around the world remember the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ this weekend, please continue to pray for those suffering with coronavirus and for those battling on the front lines of this terrible disease.
