Tuvya Zaretsky reports, “On New Year’s Day, a couple of our staff gave out evangelistic literature at the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, CA. We’ve had an annual outreach at this parade since 1975. The theme this year was ‘Inspiring Stories.’ The parade Grand Marshall was originally to have been Louis Zamperini, who passed into eternity last July. Louie was a World War II hero and an Olympic athlete who found salvation and forgiveness through Messiah Jesus at a Billy Graham crusade. His memoir, Unbroken, by Laura Hillenbrand is a national best seller with a wonderful story.
“To fit with the theme, I wrote a brief gospel message titled, ‘Inspiring Stories for 2015 and Beyond,’ encouraging people to go to our Jews for Jesus web site and watch Jewish Journey of Faith testimonies. Please pray for those who saw us at the parade to be inspired by our literature to see the videos, read the Bible, and find salvation in Yeshua!”
