From Dan Sered in Israel: “This year’s Behold Your God (BYG) Israel campaign is just around the corner. That means from morning to night, our team of 30 people will be out in full force as we hand out broadsides (gospel tracts), hold giant banners, make hundreds of phone calls, and advertise in the local media. In years past we have held campaigns in Tel Aviv, Be’er Sheva, and Haifa and have received a great response.

“These campaigns are intense as our people are out in the heat, facing opposition from anti-missionaries and coming against historical barriers that have been placed in the hearts and minds of our Jewish people against the gospel of Messiah.

“This year we will have six first-time campaigners on our team, and we will be leading all of the training sessions in Hebrew for the first time as well. Vladimir Mitnitsky, the head of our General Missionary Team and co-leader of this year’s BYG campaign, asks that you ‘please pray for strength and complete health for all of the campaigners and their families, for strategy and wisdom from God in how to reach people with His saving grace, and for team unity—that the team will function as one in Messiah despite any challenges and opposition we might face.’

“We also ask that you pray with us for the Lord to soften the hearts of the Israelis whom we will be meeting; that they may be welcoming to us and the truth found in the death, burial, and resurrection of Messiah Yeshua.”
