SHARING THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST TO THIS GENERATION

CHRISTIAN MISSIONARIES SERVING THE PEOPLE OF SICILY AND ITALY THROUGH THE GOSPEL

Giuseppe & Pennie Collesano
Giuseppe & Pennie Collesano

Giuseppe was born and raised in Castelbuono, Sicily (province of Palermo), in a Catholic family. He went to church only for holidays, baptisms, etc., until his First Communion when the Priest told him that he was now a soldier for Christ. He never set foot in the church again because he had no desire to hear about a God who was going to punish him by sending him to hell. He was afraid of death, and he was scared of the Christ that was up on the crucifix.

When he was 19, the first two believers that told him about the gospel befriended him. He kept listening to them until he ventured into a small meeting room in his hometown where people there studied the Bible and who could explain it to him. He became a regular attendee but still had doubts about what the missionaries were teaching. One night, on his way home after getting into a fight with his 2 best friends, he decided to find out for himself whether or not what the missionaries were saying was the truth. He found a Bible that his father had brought home from Germany one Christmas and began reading it for himself.

The Holy Spirit spoke to his heart, and he broke down crying and told God that if He was who the Bible said he was that he wanted him to take over his life because he couldn’t go on any longer the way he was living.

He and his 2 buddies decided that they would have to be the ones to tell the others in their town that they had found the truth and thus started his quest to evangelize his countrymen. Two years after he was saved, he went to study in Rome at the Italian Bible Institute; 1978-1980… Read More

PRESENTING THE WORD OF JESUS CHRIST IN THIS TIME OF UNCERTAINTY

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed – a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”
