FOLLOW UP FROM LAST MONTH’S PRAYER REQUESTS:
THE ROSE FESTIVAL CAMPAIGN IN PORTLAND, OREGON
This campaign was planned and led by our Co-Laborers in Messiah, Allen and Penny Abrahamson. They had a core group of about 20 full-time campaigners and another 14 or so part-timers who came to help at various times.
The campaign dates were June 1-10. Campaigners distributed 36,900 broadsides, prayed with 3 Jewish people and 20 Gentiles to receive Jesus, and received contact information to follow up on 17 Jewish and 48 Gentile seekers. There were some amazing answers to prayer, particularly concerning the weather. At one point it was raining just blocks away from our sortie sites, yet our campaigners remained dry!

HASIDIC OUTREACH IN NEW YORK
In total we approached 797 Hasidic people over the 12 outreach days, had conversations with more than half (55%) of them and were able to share the gospel with 23% (185 people). We did see two young men (in their 20s) profess faith in Jesus during the outreach. Click here for more on the Hasidic outreach.
Our outreach workers in Germany spent a week with volunteers (many from Philadelphia Church) in Frankfurt. Ten people handed out 23,440 broadsides, and received contact information from 5 Jewish seekers (2 of whom are German Jews, the other three are Russian-speaking Jews). Click here for photos.
Our three Sydney missionaries were in Perth, Australia from May 9-15. They enjoyed individual meetings with Jewish people like the Cohens and Glenn, who were referred to them by folks in the area. They also handed 8,000 tracts and found three more Jewish inquirers through their street witnessing. The newspaper advertisement netted at least two more Jewish contacts and dozens of believers who know Jewish folks—we hope for more referrals and ask you to pray to that end. Please pray for salvation for Bill and Eve, as well as university students, Michael Josh and Dirk. Click here for photos.
WASHINGTON, D.C. PRAISE REPORT
Last month we mentioned that we were praising God that Alex, one of the two Jewish seekers who have been attending our weekly Bible study, received Jesus. Please rejoice with us again as the other seeker, Jim, has also come to faith. Please pray for Jim to grow in grace and that God will continue to bring Jewish seekers to the study.
