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.

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

Two Somali young men reading the Word in their language , the service was in English where I preached on 1Peter 1:6-9. They waited outside reading eagerly. Here it is time for oranges. I am squeezing them for David which I think he has strep. I am taking care of the young man during this time. Calle...

Two Somali young men reading the Word in their language , the service was in English where I preached on 1Peter 1:6-9. They waited outside reading eagerly. Here it is time for oranges. I am squeezing them for David which I think he has strep. I am taking care of the young man during this time. Called my doctor and he is getting antibiotics plus the oranges and rest. That's why we ask you to pray for us. For them that they might read and believe, and for us to be healthy to serve Him. Bless someone today. Ciao...
