Dear partners and friends:

As I write to you from Sicily, we are in the rainy season now, where the temperature is a balmy 73 degrees. For me, it’s like summer!

A little recap from the time home in Michigan, and now preparing for the months ahead of us with lots to do:

After a few months in the States working in preparation of our daughter’s wedding, we were able to do some remodeling on our place in Rochester Hills and on Bois Blanc Island. We were blessed for Cristina and John’s wedding on Bois Blanc Island. Our son Joshua officiated the wedding a week before co-leading a mission trip to Brazil with his wife Rachel. We are blessed that our children are serving our Lord.

We ask you to pray for the days and months ahead for Act Now Ministries. We are expanding in Sardinia, the other major island in the Mediterranean Sea. We are also expanding our group of churches where we can impact the country exponentially with the Gospel. Giuseppe just arrived and was invited to a conference on migrants, where the theme was: the problematic role of the church and how to answer to the crisis in Italy.

At the end of the conference, Giuseppe was asked if he would consider co-leading the next conference and location in April, so we need your prayers. With His help and guidance, we can make a difference locally and abroad.

The Lord said to ask for more laborers and we need more help. At this moment, we are considering adding more personnel to our board of directors and your prayers would be greatly appreciated.

We have seen an increase from groups and people who want to serve alongside Act Now Ministries; yes, we need your prayers again!

We thank the Lord for strength, good health and stamina. Still, we are not getting any younger and we need your prayers. We thank the Lord for you, because we need you. Together, we can impact this generation with His love.

As a family, we rejoice for our daughter’s wedding…how much more we should rejoice about the wedding waiting for us in heaven! God is good.

We pray and wish upon you His richest blessings and as always: Let’s go fishing (really) for One more for The One. Ciao for now, your servants with Act Now Ministries Giuseppe and Pennie Collesano.
