Say Hello to the Valiquette's
Justin and Abbey Valiquette are Sanibel natives, both saved through the ministry of SCC, who have followed the Lord’s call to bring the gospel to the unreached people of Italy.
When asked to describe their ministry and purpose, Justin & Abbey said:
"It’s a common misconception that Italy has the gospel, so we should focus our missionary efforts elsewhere. But sadly, as a result, less than 1% of the 60 million inhabitants believe in the gospel of grace. Steeped in tradition and superstition, Italy has always been a very difficult place to reach. But, as we have been here since 2008, first reaching students, now planting a church in the city center, we are more convinced now than ever that the people of Italy are resistant because they have never seen the gospel in action.
Our vision is to plant a gospel-centered church that puts on display the beauty of what Jesus has done for us, as we faithfully live and proclaim the good news of the cross. But that is only the beginning. If we are going to reach Italy, we believe that the best way to do that is through planting churches in every town, city and region. Our hope is to train leaders and teams who will be sent out to plant new churches, that will in turn train and send out their own, thus saturating Italy with communities of light! Please pray for us, our city and this beautiful country, that God would continue to do a great work in and through us, for His glory!
With love in Christ,
Justin and Abbey Valiquette (with Bryce-12, Addison-11, Cayden-10, and Isabella-9)"
