It seems that January flew by very fast and we are back in Sicily preparing for a year full of opportunities.
This month, we held our first board meeting of Act Now Ministries. It was a joy to see what has happened since the inception of the mission. God is faithful and has blessed us with great partners. We give Him the glory. During our time together at the meeting, we came across this sign on a building. We hope you enjoy it. Giuseppe put a caption on it: “Our President not only fixes the economy but can fix bones too.”
Also this year, we anticipate the coming of two or three groups from the United States to help with the work in Sicily. Giuseppe was able to interview some volunteers that want to come for an extended period of service and experience missionary life in a practical way. In Castelvetrano, where he resides on a farmhouse, the work is progressing well as you can see from the photos.

We are looking for someone to come onboard for a longer period of time, so that when Giuseppe is in the States representing the mission, there is no disruption in the work flow. We have seen an increase in numbers in the Italian church where Giuseppe preaches on Sunday night and also in the weekly bible study. With the help of refugeebible.com, we have given 11,000 English bibles so far, PTL.
Thank you for your faithfulness. Just the other day, the last ones were given to the refugees. Today, we received a new shipment of 400 bibles, and another 2,600 are in the pipeline…not bad! And to think that Giuseppe asked for only 10,000 bibles in Thank you, friends! We count a privilege to serve with you an ever Awesome God. The invite still remains: come and visit.
As always, let’s go fishing ( really ) for one more. God bless you. Your servants with Act Now Ministries, Giuseppe and
Pennie Collesano. Ciao for now.
