The Farinelli's are an international family of four, currently serving in Italy as missionaries. Marcelo was born in Brazil, moved to Italy as a teenager to plant a church with his family, and then went to the States to study music ministry at Northwest University outside of Seattle. That's where the love began! Marcelo and Elise met there, married, and finished their studies. A few years later their oldest daughter, Giulia, was born . Both Marcelo and Elise had hearts to serve God in Italy and God opened the doors for them to move to Siracusa when Giulia turned one year old. They sold everything and embarked on what would be a 4.5 year journey of service to God and the Italian people. There, Lillian was born and as their family grew so did their hearts for God's world. In college, Elise had prayed for a life of adventure...and a life of adventure God is delivering! Long story short, after almost five years the Farinelli's moved back to the States and during that time God continued putting pieces of the puzzle of their lives together. Not two years later, God asked them to return to Italy! That's where they are now, continuing the journey and implementing strategies and visions as God teaches and leads...only this time they are serving alongside the Communitas family. Marcelo and Elise feel privileged to be part of such an awesome team and cannot wait to see God's hand work miracles and change lives in Siracusa!
