Believe it or not, the secular media will print the good news of Jesus—for a price. Missionary Valerie Cymes in Washington, D.C., says, Some of my most open contacts come through this outreach. One Jewish woman, Felicia, called our office after seeing our gospel ad in the Washington Post. She wanted a Jewish believer’s perspective on Jesus. We met for several months of instruction, and I watched as God melted away her doubts. Felicia committed her life to Christ, and within a few months her mother, (who was initially hostile about her daughter’s decision), came to faith!”
Lidia also responded to our [Russian] gospel ad in Washington, D.C. Victoria Lannon (our outreach worker to the Russian Jewish community) followed up. During their second visit, Lidia came to faith in Jesus as Lord and Savior.
Victoria says, “Each time I talk to Lidia on the phone, she can’t wait to tell me what she discovered in the Bible that day or how God gave her comfort and peace amid difficulties. She says that God turned around her entire way of looking at things … at age sixty-five. I took her with me to visit a Russian Jewish man named Lev. I explained the gospel to him and answered some of his questions. He doubted that the gospel could make a difference to him. I asked if Lidia wanted to say anything. She brought tears to my eyes as she humbly told how God had changed her life in just two months. Her story meant more in that moment than anything I could have said. I am so thankful that Lidia saw and responded to one of our gospel ads!”
