Rahel Landrum | Sydney

Rahel Hirshenson Landrum was born in Romania and at the age of twelve, moved with her family to Israel. While her Jewish father was not a believer in Jesus until late in life, Hirshenson grew up attending church in Romania with her Christian mother. Before going into the Israeli army, Rahel accepted her pastor's invitation to take a short Bible course. Through that study she became convinced that Jesus' claim to be the way to God is true. Rahel has a B.A. in English from Haifa University, an M.A. in Jewish Missions from Fuller THeological Seminary, and studied at Capernwray, a Bible school in England. She and her husband Mark were missionaries in Chicago and London before their move to Sydney.
