Chris and Margaret Herud, who serve with Chosen People Ministries’ hospitality ministry in New Zealand, received a call from Shlomo,* a religious Israeli, seeking accommodations for the Sabbath. He also asked if he could bring a travelling companion, another Shlomo,* from the United States—quieter, polite, and a deep thinker. Chris had made some challah bread, a Sabbath tradition, which created quite a positive impression! Although Israeli Shlomo did not participate much in the dinner discussion, Chris was able to give an English version of Isaiah 53 Explained to USA Shlomo. He said he was very touched and that he would read it. Please pray that the seeds that were planted will bear fruit in both Shlomos’ lives.
Chosen People Ministries exists to pray for, evangelize, disciple, and serve Jewish people everywhere and to help fellow believers do the same. The mission was founded in Brooklyn, New York in 1894 by Rabbi Leopold Cohn, a Hungarian Jewish immigrant with a zeal to share the knowledge of Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah with God’s chosen people.
