I am Olga Emma. I was born in 1978 in a small village of Marianovka, Odessa region, Ukraine. I lost my parents when I was 4 and was sent to live in an orphanage. When I was 11, I met some believers from whom I learned that God loved me. When I was 13, these believers took me into their home, and at 16, I was baptized in the church. That year, I went to work at a Christian bookstore, where I first heard about Jews for Jesus and also met my future husband, Anatoli. I volunteered for Jews for Jesus since 1999, and then joined the staff as a missionary. I am very glad that both my husband and I work together with Jews for Jesus for the salvation of the Jewish people!
We are charter members of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA), a Christian watchdog group. This group requires us to comply with rigorous standards of reporting and auditing. As the old Hebrew National hot dog slogan used to say, "We answer to a higher authority."
88% of the money that supports Jewish Evangelism comes from donors like you.
Jews for Jesus is a not-for-profit, 501(c)3 organization. We trust God for the funding of Jews for Jesus, and He has provided through caring Christians. Each missionary raises his or her own support. We ask our Christian friends to support their local churches first. Then we ask people to prayerfully consider giving to our ministry as well. We welcome the support of all Christians, though we particularly appreciate those who include our ministry in their regular missions giving.
