An urgent prayer request:

Last Saturday night while we were in a square having an outreach with the mechanic bull, Marco had a very bad accident. The night was going very well. Marco and the guys of Jesus Generation were distributing Gospels and talking with lots of people around the place.
Some of them asked Marco to show them how to ride the Bull, so Marco did it. While he was riding the bull something strange happened. After a very weird fly, Marco hit the air mattress with his head first and then he bent his neck very badly. He was not able to move for a few seconds and the people started to gather around to see what had happened, so he ask for help to get out of the air mattress to not scare anymore the crowd.
We helped Marco to get up and let him sitting on a short wall along the road, but after a couple of minutes he lost his sense. We called the ambulance and they brought Marco to the First Aim. The doctor said that there is nothing broke, but there is a Trauma on his neck. For about 2 weeks Marco must rest and wear a collar that will keep his head still he needs some injection everyday for the pain and to relax the muscles.
We really believe that all of this was an attach from the enemy. We are going to have a very busy time working for the Kingdom. At the end of this week 16 people from Milan will come to have a time of outreach around our city. We know that the enemy is not happy about it. The battles already started and we need your prayers. Marco need to be healed very soon and we want to see God’s glory among our people winning souls for HIM!!
Some of the verses that Marco found very inspiring are the same words the apostle Paul wrote to 2 Corinthias 4:3-13

And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled only to those who are perishing.
In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake.
For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.
We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair;
persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed;
always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies.
For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
So death is at work in us, but life in you.
Since we have the same spirit of faith according to what has been written, "I believed, and so I spoke," we also believe, and so we also speak

Being sure of your prayers we thank you and we bless you all in Jesus name.
