George Calleja

Biography

During the years 1990 to 1996 I was a full time missionary with ‘The International Catholic Programme for Evangelization - ICPE’ and have evangelized in various countries, such as Russia, Ghana, Poland, Germany, and Malta amongst others. Since 1997, I am married and am an active member of the Focolare Movement in Malta.

During the six years of my life as a missionary with ICPE’, to share His Love in different countries, I did face the challenge of saying ‘Yes’ to Him. It was a difficult decision to make, as I had to leave everything behind: my family, my friends, giving up my job... But as I had a deep faith in Him, I told Him 'Yes’... I will follow You... trusting, that he would take care of me in all aspects of my life. That prayer of mine opened the doors for me to give my ‘Yes’ to Him... to follow Him.

In the following six years as a missionary, and also after that time, Jesus has always taken care of me, has always provided me with blessings and grace, and has also taken care of me financially. Through faith, and my personal relationship with Him, He has taught me how to trust Him, and how to really follow Him freely and in peace.

During my time as a missionary with ‘ICPE’, I recall going through different sacrifices. There were times when as a group we performed a mime in the streets of Germany and other countries, to bring forth the message of Salvation, together with our testimonies and preaching. It wasn’t the first time that people watching us made fun of us, laughed at us and ridiculed us. I used to feel the pain… but during the same occasion, I would see other people receiving our message of hope and desiring Jesus… that would encourage me to keep on going spreading the Good News!

Many times, I have turned to Him in prayer for direction in life. He has always shown me the way in these situations. He has shown me what to do and what to say.

My recent experience of Jesus showing me the way, is precisely of writing Christian books. Since the early nineties when I was a missionary, I always felt this desire inside me to write books with a Christian theme. I never really understood what this meant, or maybe I did not take up the challenge at that time. Maybe, I never had the time to do it! Still, over these years I kept feeling that He wanted it from me! Since that time, it has always been in my heart… but it was never fulfilled!

My ‘Yes’ to take up this challenge happened in November 2014, and since then, I have published five Christian books. God has paved the way for me to do it. I do sacrifice myself to write these books, as it needs time to write and to publish. But, I thank Him, that through this challenge, although it is tough, it is also peaceful and it is rewarding to see other people appreciating my work, and receiving the messages I write… which are based on Jesus’ love to us, that is, His Salvation.

My writings are a simple message of encouragement for life, to make the reader think about what life is all about, and to give the reader a challenge to live life through God's Love. My writings are based on my Christian values, and I try to reach out to all people in the world, whatever their belief is, as I believe that every person is able to love his neighbour. So through my writings, I present the message to the readers to have this personal relationship with God and to love every person through God's love.

So, I do appreciate your prayers and support, that I may continue to publish Christian books. And finally I hope that you enjoy my writings and be blessed by reading them.

Smashwords book reviews by George Calleja

  • The Crater Mountain Sasquatch Legend on Aug. 25, 2015

    I loved every part of reading this book ‘The Crater Mountain Sasquatch Legend’. Reading this book is very easy to understand and to follow the story. Robert has a style of his own in writing. I liked the way this book is written, as it is full of suspense, and the writing is well descriptive of what is happening. This book made me feel as if I am part of the story. I highly recommend this book to be read, especially by those readers who like suspense, who enjoy reading legends and for those who enjoy imagining beasts, creatures and the like. Furthermore, this book is also for those who loves a mystery novel. Robert’s writings is very interesting, fresh and with new ideas and creativity.
  • Wicked Love on Sep. 15, 2015

    This is a very interested book written by Sandra Madera. Very imaginative and creative writing. A story that keeps you on the edge till the very last sentence. A particular verse which I liked most in this book was ‘Love is more powerful than magic’. It really made me think a lot. If you like suspense, magic, imaginative creatures, a feel of pixie dust and a love story… then this book is for you… you will enter into a world of fantasy where you really belong and feel part of it.
  • Silent Voices on Dec. 21, 2015

    ‘Silent Voices’…a book full of imagination which keeps its reader interested in what will happen in every Chapter. This book has a lot of great characters like Elrenia that fit very good in the story that is filled with excitement, adventure and surprises. Also the animals Bubba the Pit Bull play very important and interesting part of the story. Through this book the author Irene Kueh shows that she is a great writer which will keep the reader interested till the very end. Also, the author shows that she is very modern in her writings as she includes a lot of phrases that links to today’s technology. My final verdict is that ‘Silent Voices’ is an excellent book and I recommend it very highly.
  • Jasper and the Shelter of Angels on Jan. 21, 2016

    An interesting plot… an interesting story… full of creative imagination of a man who is injured at work which paves the way for the encounter with angels. Really enjoyed reading what angels do during the day when meeting up with Jasper… you simply feel part of the story! It was also interesting to get to know Jasper, how he reacted upon seeing angels and also meeting with demons! The book also has interesting illustrations of the different angels mentioned. A good book to read and enjoyed every part of it due to the imaginative writing of Robert. A 5 star book and highly recommended.
