Schvaneveldt, Matthew & Barbara
Ministry: Church Planter
Originating from California (USA), Lee and Jeannette Walti have five children (27, 24, 22, 18 and 14 years), they have been married for 28 years and are serving as missionaries for over 25 years. They arrived in Italy in 2008 and after learning the language and getting used to the culture, in 2010 they founded, “Chiesa Verità di Grazia” (Truth of Grace Church). Lee serves in the role of pastor and does discipleship of men / boys and Jeannette disciples women / girls and is also a housewife and a mother. They also open their home to people for church events and evangelistic dinners. Their association, “Aiuta Il Tuo Prossimo” (Help Your Neighbor) organizes English courses for adults and teenagers and various events to reach Italians with the gospel. And during the summer they engage in overseeing a summer sports camp for young kids (7-12 yrs) for Chiavari and surrounding areas. All these events are free for all participants.
Lee and Jeannette do appreciate and need your prayers. They do not have enough staff and support like most missionaries. If you want to help and support them by becoming part of their team, please, go to the Italian Ministries USA site from this link: https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/IMUSA They thank you and ask you to send an email to VDGChiavari@gmail.com for any prayer requests you may have.
