Greetings from not so cold Michigan!
We hope your Christmas was a very merry one and the new year that just started will be a very Happy New Year for all of you and your families. We are very thankful for a blessed and fruitful December. From mid-November to mid-December, Giuseppe traveled all over Sicily responding to requests for preaching in different churches and refugee camps, sharing the gospel like never before.
God is at work in an amazing way — that’s because you pray and support the ministry through Act Now Ministries.
The Asero family, Leonardo, Daniele, Carmelo, Mikela, Carla, Cantarella family, Mark, Blessing…should we keep going? People, yes people: the Gospel has a face in people to whom we minister with you alongside of us. All of this and more happened this past year, and we are not done yet.
Remember to keep praying for the Castronuovo’s and Kayla Marie Weaser who wish to come full time to work in Sicily. People, yes to reach more people for the One.
There were also two major trips: one all along Italy and up to Switzerland, and one in Sardegna. Also, we can thank some of the nationals who have helped along the way, like Isidoro, Andrea, Giuseppe, Mimmo, Susanna and many more.
2020 is projected to be another blessed year as we go forward. We already have a few that are coming to visit and experience what God can do with their lives alongside ANM. Even when Giuseppe is back in the States, ministry continues while relaxing with family and friends.
We do have a couple prayer requests for ongoing work: translation in Italian of training materials in discipleship, and a bible study series on the battle that the believer fights: The invisible war.
The Collesano’s thank you for your love and support. Expect great things from God and do great things for God. These words, penned by the great missionary William Carey, still sound as fresh as when they were written. Let’s make 2020 a year to remember for what God can do through you.
As always, let’s go fishing (really) for one more for the One.
A big thank you from Giuseppe and Pennie Collesano!
Ciao for now.
