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.

Can you spare a dime? How many times we have heard such words? Many times , from beggars , homeless people, refugees and so on.
We ask you , can you spare five minutes for prayer? Does not seem much to ask for. Easier to give a quarter to someone in need and forget about it.
Can you pray for our youth? Yes for the next generation, for the ones that we took the pledge when they were dedicated to the Lord. For the ones that will take our place and continue the race . It seems that constantly here at Act Now Ministries we receive such a plea for prayers. A Few minutes ago as I was raking outside we received a phone call asking for prayer.
We pass them along to you , our partners and supporters . Together we are stronger .
Pray with us : for Jim M, a form of cancer , dealing with daily pain. A dear friend of the ministry.
For D , fell from a horse and broke her neck.
For K M W, stress at work and relationships.
For N M, living and working in a non Christian environment away from loved ones.
The enemy goes around trying to devour and destroy .
Can you spare a nickel of your time and talk to Papa’ ( Daddy), about it?
We can.
God bless you.
