Please pray for Jews for Jesus upcoming summer ministries
We are continuing to see pieces falling into place for various outreaches this summer, but would appreciate your prayer that God will bring all the right people to participate with us.
Training for those interested in Jewish evangelism
Every year just prior to our New York City Summer Witnessing Campaign, we have a two-week training course for those who will be on campaign for the first time. It’s a wonderful and intense time at Moody Bible Institute, and college credit is offered for the course. While the majority of students are first-time campaigners, the course is not only for those participating on our short-term mission to New York City. If you live in the Chicago area and are interested, please send an email to [email protected] and write “Moody training” in the subject line. So far, most of our campaigners this year are not first-timers so there is plenty of room in the class. Please pray for God to bring just the right people so that we can have a lively class dynamic.
Summer witnessing campaigns
In addition to our annual New York City Summer Witnessing Campaign, this summer we are conducting outreaches in Berlin and Budapest. We will tell you more as the time approaches, but for now, please pray as we plan and prepare and continue recruiting people to team up with us for all three campaigns.
We need prayer for:
- the right teams of people to come together
- those who join us to raise their support
- new evangelistic literature we are in the process of creating
- God to prepare the hearts, minds and bodies of all who will be representing Him on the streets of these three cities
In addition, our Budapest team leader asks prayer as they are in the process of translating follow-up material into Hungarian. Please also pray for them to find the right T-shirt company to help make campaigners into human billboards.
Summer camp programs
Camp Gilgal, our ministry to children and youth, accounts for a major part of our investment in the next generation of Jews for Jesus. Please pray that God will bring us the campers whose lives He wants to touch, and that He’ll provide all the volunteers and interns our staff will need to minister to these kids.
High schoolers (often kids who’ve participated in Camp Gilgal) will join up with each other in New York City for a time of discipleship and coming alongside our summer witnessing campaigners. Pray that this will be a life-changing experience for these kids at a key point in their spiritual development.
College-age Jewish believers in Jesus team up in Israel for a time of training, outreach on the streets and bonding as a team, before moving on to India where they minister to Israeli backpackers. Please pray for God to stir the hearts of those He wants on this journey, so that we can finalize the roster and they can begin raising support.
