While in Israel, staff members Randall and Luda Ford shared a meal with three Chinese businessmen overlooking the Dead Sea. One of them asked. “How can a country of a few million people rival Silicon Valley? We do business in Europe and North America, but this nation is the most remarkable. The progress of Israel is impossible to explain.” Luda and Randall both showed from the Scripture how Israel’s reestablishment demonstrates God’s faithfulness and confirms that the prophecies about the Messiah are true. At the end of the conversation, they carefully wrote down the first verses of the book of John, which Randall was able to quote in Chinese! As a result, these business travelers felt convicted to make Christian connections upon their return to China.
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.
