Did You Know?
World Cup Outreach
We had small teams in each city where the games were played: Gelsen Kirchen, Dortmund, Berlin, Hanover, Stuttgart, N?rnberg and M?nchen. We also handed out tracts in nearby Essen. We handed out a total of 63,000 tracts and heard the comment, You guys are everywhere!”
Participant Jack Delmonte said this about the Jews for Jesus World Cup outreach:
“Flags from every continent filled the cities of Germany, even before the World Cup games began. But one unexpected banner seemed to arrest the attention of a lot of surprised spectators and fans–the banner “Jews for Jesus” in German and English that we wore on our shirts as we handed out our Jewish gospel tracts. Did people take note? Praise the Lord, they did! For example:
An Orthodox Jewish woman stopped to talk with me as I handed out literature in the pedestrian zone at Kings Street in Stuttgart. The words on my shirt captured her attention, and the fact that there are Jews who truly believe in Yeshua puzzled, bothered and intrigued her. She took one of my tracts and asked me some questions. I told her about Jesus and she seemed open to hearing more, but she was clearly nervous about being seen talking to me. She wasn’t yet willing to give her e-mail address or telephone number. But as she was leaving I pointed out our website on the back of our pamphlets. ‘If you go to the site,’ I told her, ‘you can find a lot more information, including a list of prophecies from Tenach that we think clearly point to Yeshua.’ I encouraged her to take a look, and I assured her that if she were to have any questions, we would be more than glad to help out. Please pray that Hannah and many others will have the courage to look and consider the claims of Yeshua, despite fears and concerns.”

We designed The Word on the Street with our believing friends and supporters in mind. It’s on the left side of the home page, under “Of Interest.” Click on “See how our gallery grows” to look at pictures from each day’s campaign. The most recent pictures are displayed first, and you can check out previous days’ pictures by clicking on the date on the left under the “gallery” heading. Since you are already checking out pictures, you might as well look at “Today’s Tract,” where we offer a printable and readable version of the day’s broadside. Check out the “New York Fact” section for interesting tidbits about the city. Take a look at the “iSay” for reflections about each day, as well as a list of some of the happenings, including media updates and some interesting street experiences from each campaign. Don’t forget to look at the “wePray” section if you want to join us in a prayer for the campaign each day. You will also find a link to the Jesus for Jews site, which was designed with seekers in mind.
(Hint: The gallery is the only part of the site with previous days easily accessible. But if you would like to look at previous days for any other section, when you click on “Today’s tract,” look at the URL in your browser. There will be a date at the end of it. Type any previous date in July and you will see that day’s tract. The same is true for the other sections of the Word on the Street.)
You can view the JESUS FOR JEWS seeker site from the right side of our home page; see “Spotlight” and click on the subway car to enter. From there you can view various events happening throughout the campaign, look at blogs, listen to podcasts and see evangelistic sites in Hebrew, Russian and Yiddish (and of course in English.)
