A Tale of Two Sisters

We met Judith near Chinook, Montana, an unusual place to meet anyone Jewish, let alone a Jewish believer. Actually, Judith was not from Montana, but from Connecticut, in a city close to New York City. We spent some time with her that day, and later that evening we left town with the rest of the…

Why I Aspire To Be A Missionary
Author: Joshua Moss

After a year of service with our Jews for Jesus Los Angeles branch, I rejoined the Liberated Wailing Wall, our mobile evangelistic team. Looking back on that year’s experience as a branch missionary and looking ahead to my future, I have what seem to be conflicting feelings. I found my time in Los Angeles to…
