Dedication of our Meeting Place
Ordination of Pastor Omar
After 5 years, the mission work was organized as a local church last May 2017.
This is the first Sunday service in the meeting place. A remarkable milestone to the mission work.

The mission work in Bethany Milan started in 2012.
With an initial membership of seven (7), they gathered in a place of less than 12 sqm. with nothing but a pulpit, hymn book and a Bible - and that is how the first service started. After months, the place could no longer contain them and they transferred to gather every Sunday from one park to another. It was by the grace of God that they were able to have a meeting place before they marked their first missions anniversary.
Five years after, God has greatly added the souls in the mission church and they are being used to introduce the gospel to the Italians and other nationalities who are equally in dire need of it.
Bethany Baptist Church - Milan will press on with the conviction that their vision and passion for missions will not be confined to the third-world countries, knowing that no country can be called great apart from cleaving to our great God.
After all, every nation is a good ground for mission.
