COVID-19 hit Italy very hard, and Operation Mobilization Italy is weathering the storm, hoping to see the country remade to the glory of Christ.

Italy lost 368 people to the virus in one day, by far the most for any country in a single day since the outbreak began.

You may have seen videos of the quarantine in Italy, with people leaning out of their windows and singing together. Many of those people are Christians, and many of the songs are about the Gospel.

Among the Christians in Italy are those who work for Operation Mobilization Italy (OMI).

Davide Bogliolo (Da-vide bo-YOLO) says of OMI’s personal situation, “Now we are stuck in the houses. I have to say that the theme here is is quite good. And we are healthy, you know, none of us has been infected or is as any kind of has the problem. So, the staff is okay.”

Bogliolo says OMI is responding to the virus much like many others in Italy and around the world: they are staying in their homes, trying to help not spread the virus.
