A trailer load of Tropicana Orange Juice was dropped off at the cafeteria of a Bible college every week. The students wondered how a low-cost Bible College could afford so much expensive juice. One morning in chapel, an older Italian man in broken English, gave his testimony. He said he had come to the US from Italy in the 20’s as a young teenager, with nothing but the clothes on his back. A Christian couple befriended him and through their love he came to know Christ as his Savior and Lord. One Sunday in church, he prayed: “Lord, if you give me an idea for a business, I will be faithful to give a portion of everything I make back to Your work.” That very morning, the idea of “Fresh squeezed orange juice” popped into his head – and the rest is history: Anthony Rossi founded the “Tropicana Co” and has been faithful to give God – not 10% of his income, as many faithful believers do, but 50% of his income, for the past 60 years! He also gave truckloads of FREE orange juice to Christian colleges throughout the country!
