Missionaries With “Italy For Christ” And 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.

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

Here we go. First trip to the refugee camps with my van full to the tilt with clothes , shoes , toys and more. Arrived safely to the the west coast of Sicily. As always thank you for your prayers and love. Blessings.

Smiles.!! Although most of the refugees are men we find in the mix women and children. After they land on our shores with nothing on their backs hoping to start a new life, it is refreshing to see a thankful smile.

Smiles.!! Although most of the refugees are men we find in the mix women and children. After they land on our shores with nothing on their backs hoping to start a new life, it is refreshing to see a thankful smile. A toothbrush and toothpaste, a new t-shirt, shoes, a little toy for a child makes all the difference in the world. All of this allows us to share The Word of God , giving them The Hope that never fades. Thank you for allowing us to be your hands and feet here in Sicily. Bless someone today....
