For those of you who have prayed through all our prayer prompters in 2000, thank you! Some of our missionaries are better than others about reporting back on answers to prayer (…ahem…to those of you Jews for Jesus missionaries reading this, you know who you are!). But they all appreciate your prayers and we’ve got room for a few tidbits that we hope will prompt you to praise God.
The Liberated Wailing Wall wants to thank you for interceding for them: We’ve had many answers to prayer! We have written several new songs. The new bus is a blessing! God has been opening up team members’ family’s hearts! R.’s brother (whom she hadn’t seen in five years) came out and followed our team around for three days! WOW! Pray for continued blessings with all of our unsaved family!”
We prayed that God would bring more laborers for the field and we have had many new missionaries to introduce to you in the past several newsletters!
We asked for prayer for Shirley’s salvation in London; she has become a believer and is growing in her faith.
Greg Savitt asked prayer for the husband of one of his contacts. This prayer was answered and reported via a letter in this month’s “Bits from the Branches.” (p.8)
Greg also asked prayer for spiritual growth for a new Jewish believer named Lee, and also that Lee’s wife would come to faith. Greg reports, “Lee is reading his Bible, active in church, prays, witnesses to his friends. His wife is very curious about the gospel. She has been reading a lot of the literature I have given her, and is asking good, searching questions.”
In Los Angeles, Tuvya Zaretsky asked prayer for a new Jewish believer named Dennis. Tuvya reports, “Dennis has been growing in the Lord. He has plugged into a local congregation near his home and is rejoicing to be following Yeshua.”
From Orange County, Rob Wertheim asked prayer for a new Jewish believer named Mike. Rob says, “Mike is growing in the Lord. We finished a discipleship guide a few weeks ago and are beginning a study in the book of Romans.”

In Washington, D.C. Garrett Smith asked prayer for two Jewish college students who came to our office after seeing the new signs. They agreed to meet with David Rothstein and attend the Bible study. Garrett reports, “They turned out to be undercover students from the local Jewish high school newspaper. They did a story on us, including extensive quotes from me. The main angle on the article was to “expose” us but the gospel was clearly stated. We were thankful.”
