Missionaries Serving The People Of Sicily Through The Gospel Of Jesus Christ

Giuseppe 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 whom 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.

In a split second God came into his heart and his life was changed. So now what? He asked. 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 Gospel of Christ To Sicily in This Generation

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.”

cross-book-01In cooperation with the local churches and also:

  • To preserve fellowship and mutual recognition of all evangelical Christian churches, acknowledging their complete autonomy with regards to internal matters;
  • Establish and coordinate the reinforcement of social and religious projects and institutions having as their goals evangelism, instruction and diffusion of the evangelical culture, assistance and charity;
  • Encourage the planting of new local churches in Italy;
  • Entertain and maintain positive relationships with other national and international religious organizations.

After a long and delayed trip Giuseppe made to Sicily.
The French and Italian alps looked so majestic. Mt. Etna is still making her presence known by delaying the flight from Rome to Catania due to the releasing of ash dust into the atmosphere.
Thank you for your prayers.

Act Now Ministries

In recent years Act Now Ministries has been involved and responded to the crisis of the refugees in Italy.
As we minister to the Italian population we where confronted with this crisis. These people escaping for a better life, either because of persecution, religious or political, or economical. They became our next door neighbors . We had and have an unique opportunity by sharing His Word to them.
In this occasion there where 530 at this camp, I remember this man in a white t-shirt.
When we met him at the end of the line he said these precise words: I arrived last night after been plucked up from the sea. Before I went to sleep I prayed asking : Please Lord send someone to bring me Your Word , and you guys showed
The One came to love and save that which was lost,
You and me were the ones.
