Thanks for Praying: BYG Israel
God answered prayer for our month-long Lower Galilee Behold Your God Israel Campaign. Dan Sered reports: “There’s no way to know the number of people that saw our T-shirts and media ads, the number of people that were touched by the way that we handled opposition and returned love for hate, etc. But I can tell you that during the campaign we had hundreds of calls coming into our office. Most were as a result of our banners. We handed out 66,305 gospel tracts, attempted 18,192 phone calls and connected with 7,202 of the people we called. We got the contact information of 1,072 Jewish Israelis who told us they wanted to know more about Yeshua. We also got the contact information of 200 unsaved Gentiles who showed interest in Jesus. Most of these were Arabs. Praise the Lord for the five Jewish people who professed faith in Jesus for the first time.”

We’ve been telling you about our Massah program that sends Jewish believers in Jesus to Israel and beyond to share their faith with Israeli backpackers. We are in the final weeks of that Massah program right now, as participants finish up their time in India.
But we are also launching Massah for Israeli Jewish believers in Jesus later this month. We’re excited to have a group of committed believers from Israel who will be meeting and sharing their faith with other Israelis as they trek through South America.
