Jews for Jesus executive director gives update on work in Israel

Check out David Brickner’s video update on our work in Israel. He explains his frequent trips to the Holy land, tells you the latest on the Barry B. case (in case you haven’t been following, one of our UK staff was arrested for holding an evangelistic banner, when in fact he was not breaking any law) and then David introduces some of our Israel staff via video.

We usually show our Israel staff out on the front lines for Jesus but here you get to see them relaxing with their families, and greeting those of you whose prayers and support keep them going. Just as you pray for the work that we’re doing in Israel, we hope you will pray for the workers and their families!
