Partners in the gospel
Isaac Brickner reports from Los Angeles, “We’re excited about a recent partnership with a local team from YWAM (Youth With A Mission). This specific team is currently dedicated to intercessory prayer for the Jewish people! They have been blessing us by volunteering at our weekly outreaches, and having times of prayer for the campus. This is an awesome thing the Lord is doing! It is such a joy to serve alongside our brothers and sisters, and to witness their passion for the salvation of Israel.
“One Thursday after one of these campus outreaches, I was walking in the quad, wearing my Jews for Jesus shirt, when two religious Jewish women approached me. They were canvasing the campus to find Jewish students to invite to their club’s Shabbat dinner. They saw the large Jewish star on my t-shirt and said, ‘You look like a nice Jewish boy!’ I smiled and explain that I work for Jews for Jesus. Dafna* and Liz* both listened as I shared part of my story, and after our conversation, they still invited me to their dinner! Praise God!
“I believe we’re starting to see a shift in the openness of students on this campus. We’re praying for God to give us wisdom about the best ways to engage with the students. I hope you’ll pray with us!”
