From London, office worker Paula Cummings reports, We received a letter from a man named Michael in Surrey, asking us to contact his Jewish girlfriend, Pamela, who he said was very open to the gospel. How did he hear about Jews for Jesus? He was walking through the woods near his home and discovered a decaying Jews for Jesus leaflet. The only part that was readable was the tear-off slip offering to witness to Jewish friends. He was so intrigued that he filled it in and sent it to us. Coincidence? I don’t think so!”

From Israel, missionaries Shlomi and Miriam Abramov report, “We had some vacation time in Tiberias where we had the joy of helping to lead two people to faith. The first, Rivka, had hosted me [Miriam] when I first came to Israel ten years ago. I have prayed many years for Rivka. What a joy to see her receive the Lord! The other person, Shimon, worked at the ranch where Shlomi and I went horseback riding. Shlomi struck up a conversation with him and two hours later, Shimon also received the Lord.”

From Toronto, missionary Marcello Araujo reports, “Ed and Beatriz moved here from Mexico and began attending my Spanish Bible study to meet other Spanish-speaking Jews. They were skeptical at first, but they came faithfully (and eventually invited their friends). As the months went by, their interest in the Lord grew steadily. After a recent Bible study, Ed lingered as everyone else was leaving. When I asked him if he wanted to talk, he said, ‘Yes. What do I have to do to receive Jesus as my Messiah?’ I led him in a prayer of repentance. Beatriz said she was glad that her husband had the courage to believe. But when I asked her if she was ready, she said, ‘Not yet, but don’t give up on me!'”

Missionary Greg Savitt reports from Florida, “A Jewish man named Lee came to one of my church presentations. His boss had been witnessing to him and, as a result, Lee decided to ‘randomly’ attend a church. He ‘happened’ to choose the church where I was speaking. In the course of conversation, the pastor mentioned celebrating Passover every year with a couple who turned out to be Lee’s wife’s cousins. Both Lee and his wife, Cheryl, were amazed at the many coincidences. I met with Lee the following week. He had good news: he had returned to the church where we met and had given his life to Yeshua! Cheryl was somewhat taken aback. Please pray for Lee to grow solid in his faith and for Cheryl to be open to the gospel.”

From South Africa, missionary Michael Sischy reports, “I had a recent opportunity to witness to my father. He and I have been visiting my sister, who is ill, traveling at least an hour each way to the hospital. This has been an amazing time of bridge-building. Please pray for my father’s and sister’s salvation.”

Also from South Africa, Michael’s wife Teresa reports, “I was discouraged as it seems I might lose a Jewish friend because I have been witnessing to her mother. I kept holding fast to Paul’s words: ‘For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek,’ (Romans 1:16). The following week, I met with a Jewish woman named Sheila. Sheila’s Christian friend Lilly had been faithfully sharing her faith for many years, but wasn’t quite sure what to do when Sheila began responding with interest. Lilly asked us to meet with her friend and I had the privilege of helping Sheila come to faith. Praise the Lord for this encouragement just when I needed it!”

Outreach worker Dina Markova reports from Odessa, “My sortie (tract-passing expedition) was nearly at an end, but not one Jewish person had expressed an interest in hearing more about Jesus. I stood and prayed: ‘Lord, not once have I asked You to give me contacts without having You respond graciously. I’m asking now for a contact.’ One minute later, a girl headed straight toward me. She wore a necklace with a Star of David. I asked her, ‘What do you think of the Messiah of Israel?’ ‘Nothing,’ she replied. I said, ‘You wear a Star of David, are you Jewish?’ And she replied, ‘Yes.’ Then she gave me her name and address to receive more information about Jesus. Please pray for Masha, that she would know Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior.”
