One of our missionaries reconnected with an old Jewish friend after forty years!
After coming to faith back in 1976, one of our staff members became burdened for three of her close Jewish friends from junior high and high school with whom she had lost touch before becoming a believer. Despite advances in technology, she had not been able to find them, but she has prayed for them unceasingly over the years.
Several weeks ago, one of those friends found our missionary’s number and left her a voicemail saying she had been searching for her for forty years and asked to please call her back.
Her message brought tears of thankfulness to God because our staff member had recently sought the Lord on this friend’s behalf, asking Him to protect her wherever she was and even to send someone to tell her about Yeshua. She had not expected the someone to be her! What a clear answer to prayer! Our missionary prayed and called her friend back right away.
They connected as though the years had not intervened. After joyfully reminiscing for an hour, the friend asked what our staff member had been up to all these years. She told her about the monumental change that had taken place in her life so many years ago, faith in Messiah, and her work with Chosen People Ministries. The friend listened, not arguing or judging, and reiterating how thrilled she was to reconnect. The two high school friends now stay closely in touch. Pray for them as our staff member helps her friend also get in touch with the Lord!
