Subj: Mission for God- Thank you


Hi Mr. Papania,

My name is Norris ***** and I came to the United States in 1982.
My Mom and Dad came 2 years before then me and my 2 brothers.

My mom call me at work one day and she was telling me about Jesus. I told her if she mention Jesus again I would hang the phone up. She mention Jesus again so I hung up the phone.
That same day I went into one of my co-worker office and I asked him, John, what would you say to a guy who don't believe in Jesus. John didn't answer me so I went back to my office.
Few seconds John walked in to my office and handed me a cassette (From Mafia to Ministry) and said listen to this.
On my way home I did. Sir, your testimony changed my life. I gave my life to Jesus and was baptize at Ebenezer Church of God on January 3rd 1999.

The reason why I writing you sir, the Lord is calling me to the mission field to tell my testimony, help the poor and help win souls to Him.
Can you please pray for me so I can step out in faith?

God bless, Norris.

Subj: your video " In search for a Father"


Dear Brother Tom:

Your testimony was a blessing to me and the exact " tool " I was searching for to share with a friend of mine, Rosie Sanfilippo. She's in her early 50's and has been living a gay lifestyle in California and Illinois now for many years. Recently she decided to move back here to the Milwaukee area and also decided to live alone. She said some people at her job had been witnessing to her and wanted to know where I attended my Women's Aglow meetings and when.
Because of her really long hours as a Manager at Baker's Square it's pretty hard for her to get too involved anywhere. So I sent her a copy of Joyce Meyer's " The Gospel of John" which she is reading now. I plan to now send her this tape of yours along with yours and my prayers.
I pray all is well with you and your ministry. While I was listening tonight the pain and tightness in my chest that I have been feeling suddenly left and I could breath normally without pain ! Praise the Lord.
Please pray for Rosie and also for me. Thank you so much.

Subj: Your Testimony


Dear Mr. Papania,

I wish to say after hearing your testimony, what a blessing Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ is! Right now, I am going through a difficult time with my wife suffering from a work place injury that requires surgery to repair torn cartilage and ligaments in her right wrist. The last 4 months seem like 4 years with her suffering in constant pain and a hand/wrist developing into a condition called Chronic Reflexive Disorder or RSD which can cause crippling pain. Of course with this condition, the doctors refuse to operate and it is causing problems that seem beyond anything man can accomplish. This is where we can see the Lord working. Just like your testimony where there were 60 witnesses against you and it seemed like you were going against the huge "Goliath" system, we are dealing with a system that seems like it is stacked against us. But "if God be for us, who can be against us?" That is a wonderful promise and encouragement. Hearing your testimony could not have come at a better time in our current situation. I just ordered your DVD and plan on sharing your testimony with my neighbors. It seems like there is a real need right here in Minnesota with so many lost people. Our pastor is currently working in our local jail ministry in Red Wing with a set-free program and is seeing lives miraculously transformed. Although there are not great numbers that attend our church in Cannon Falls, MN, there are many ways that I see the Lord blessing the local church despite the small numbers. May our Lord truly be praised!

I will definitely keep you in prayer as you continue to minister to the lost. Thank you for your commitment to sharing the Lord to others and staying faithful as a servant of the Lord.

In Christ,

Greg and Rhonda Berg
Red Wing, MN

Dearest Brother Tom,
I read this short treatise on brokenness and was so blessed. I pray that you are blessed by it too. I cannot express our gratitude in your outreach
to the ministry of Pryor ON Fire Teen Ministries. I will never forget the 100+ souls repenting and receiving Christ with tear filled eyes.
I pray that your powerful ministry continues to abound and abound for the glory of God. I am looking forward to a close friendship that will
last all of our years while we remain upon this wretched earth. I am available for you 24/7. Keep my cell phone in your directory.
If you ever need a sabbatical, call me. My parents have a 5000 sq. ft. log cabin nestled in the deep woods.
They are never home, you are welcome to hibernate there. I love you brother.


Your Friend,
Pastor Derek Melton

To Whom It May Concern:


I am Rev. Fred Kelly a 42 year veteran pastor, most recently having served 30 years as senior pastor of a church I founded in Norcross, Georgia.
At Landmark Church it was my joy to welcome and lead to Christ my friend Tom Papania. When he came to our service in 1984 he was serving as a body guard for Carl Coppola, a local restaurant owner who had recently been kidnapped by thugs but had escaped. It turns out that Mr. Coppola
was also a drug importer who used his restaurants to launder the drug money. When he called New York for a "connected" body guard,
Paul Castalano sent down Tom Papania. One of our members was doing business in the restaurant where Tom was "working" and invited him to
church. He came and he was saved over a period of a few meetings. Subsequently Tom was in Atlanta Federal Prison while on trial and there he led Coppola to Christ and I baptized him in the prison chapel. Tom had already been baptized at Landmark; he also went through deliverance.
Coppola was convicted and sentenced to 35 years in the federal system. I have visited him many times at various prisons. Tom was found not
guilty! I know Tom's story is a compelling one and I was there for the beginning of his life in Christ. I have been his friend and mentor all of these years. I love and appreciate his desire to serve the Lord through sharing his testimony. We have had him for two revivals at Landmark and the
results are powerful. He was a member at Landmark for many years until he moved away from the area.
It is not surprising that the devil has sent people to attack Tom because of his great work in the Kingdom. It is surprising that some in the
Kingdom have chosen to stand down in the face of the lying enemy instead of standing up for a brother whose life is precious to God. I will
never stand down where Tom Papania is concerned. He is a courageous and powerful brother in the Lord; I know him well and am proud to have
been used by God in his salvation!
