Dorothea’s Story – Italy

South Tyrol, Italy


On the 23 December, 2012, I was baptised by Pastor Helmuth. Before that, my daughter Kathrin had started attending Revival Centres Church meetings after she was invited by a close friend. When my oldest daughter Ewelyn also started attending these meetings and was baptised, I knew I had to check it out for myself.

From Concern to Assurance

From the beginning I was worried it could be a cult. But when I heard my daughter speaking in a new tongue after she was baptised, I was so touched that I decided to get baptised myself. So a few weeks later my girls and I drove together to a meeting. A part of me wanted to turn back, because I was afraid of what could happen there. But I praise God that I didn’t turn back that day when my youngest daughter Franziska and I were baptised. After the baptism I felt a great joy inside me. Two weeks later I received the Holy Spirit and spoke in tongues. About two months later my husband was also baptised. Since that time, our family has grown much closer.

It is wonderful and reassuring to know that nothing can come against us and that the Lord can help us through. Even though not everything always goes according to plan, God gives us peace and strength to deal with all. I cannot thank the Lord enough that He poured His Spirit out upon my whole family.
