Eighty-two-year-old Estelle isn’t ashamed to tell her age. Though not young in years, she is young at heart, and in fact, she’s very young in Christ—and she is jumping hurdles!
Estelle had been a believer for just over one year when she faced the hurdle of confessing her faith to a close friend. She lives in an apartment complex for the elderly, all of whom are Jewish. Her biggest fear was telling her friend, Hilda, of her love for Jesus.
Missionary Lynn Wein prayed with Estelle, asking God to give her strength. The next day, Estelle told Hilda about her faith. Hilda took the news calmly, and said, Oh well, as long as you aren’t one of those Jews for Jesus.” Estelle assured Hilda that she was, indeed, a Jew for Jesus. But she didn’t stop there; she went on to explain the gospel to Hilda! Now Estelle has even more courage to share her love of the Lord with others in her complex.
Please pray for this “young” believer, that she may continue to share her faith and see her witness bear fruit.
