My name is Giovanni Campanella. I was born in Lucca Sicula (Sicily); my family was made up of seven children among which I was the youngest. It was in Calimonaci, through the testimony of my aunt Emanuela Cocchiara, that I heard for the first time that Jesus Christ is the Only Savior to follow in order to have eternal life. A while later, I attended an Evangelical meeting in Ribera. At the same time, I was offered a Bible. I began to read it with interest, especially the historical parts. One day I heard a sermon by Serafino Scorsone that made me realize what my condition before God was. So I came hurriedly back home to give my heart to the Lord Jesus Christ. On my knees, I asked Him to forgive my sins and to come into my life. When I stood up, I was aware He had come in me. I bent on my knees one more time to thank Him.
John 1:12-13 “Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, He gave the right to become children of God, children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God”
