Recently, a special person contacted one of our young staff members—his former commander from the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), who was his drill officer when he started his military service and had been a very important figure in his formation as a soldier in the IDF. Out of the blue, Commander Levy* texted our staff member in the middle of June and asked him about his faith. Our staff member was not sure exactly what he was asking, so he offered to reconnect over the phone.
They talked a few days later and spoke for two hours. Our staff member explained his faith and why he believes that Jesus is the Messiah of the Jewish people. Commander Levy asked a lot of questions, and in the end, they prayed together. He was open to reading the Scriptures and admitted that Jesus could possibly be the one about whom the prophecies are speaking. Please pray for him that Jesus will continue working in his life. Our staff member agreed to set up weekly meetings to go through the Scriptures together to give him a better understanding of who Jesus is and how he can grow closer to Him.
