As of Tuesday night, July 15, (10 days into the campaign), they’ve handed out 155,895 broadside tracts and have gotten the names of 45 unbelieving Jews and 66 Gentiles willing to hear more about Jesus. Two Jewish people and eight Gentiles have prayed to receive Jesus. Campaign started with an Underground Adventure,” as teams clad in Jews for Jesus T-shirts traveled by Tube (the London subway system) to popular sites in the city to learn the routes and to pray at each site. Carolyn Johnson took a wrong turn en route to the British Museum and while apologizing to her team was approached by a young woman who saw their shirts and commented, “I’m Jewish and I’ve been kind of interested in Christian doctrine. How can I learn more about what you believe?” Amanda gave her name, address and phone number to hear more. Carolyn was blown away that God used her “wrong turn” to reach Amanda.
Every night a team stays indoors for “cold calling” that is, telephoning Jewish people we haven’t contacted before to see if they are interested in Jesus. As of Tuesday night, July 15, teams have tried calling 875 Jewish people, have connected with 381 and have received addresses and permission from10 unsaved Jewish people to send more information. Please pray that God will continue to give campaigners courage, and will help them connect with those He is calling.
