In half a dozen cities around Israel, we have monthly meetings for Holocaust survivors so they can socialize, have a meal, and listen to music or to a speaker. At every meeting, we speak of the Lord through our words and songs, and we encourage people to receive Jesus’ free gift of salvation. During the Jewish High Holidays, we hold special events and hundreds of people came! We are developing an ongoing friendship with many of them as they get to know us. As we earn their trust, they have started asking questions about the Lord and seeking prayer and counsel, but best of all, many have asked Jesus into their lives!
There have been quite a few professions of
faith this past year and people have started to attend local congregations.
We have also been serving many Holocaust survivors by providing them with packages of basic household items (flour, oil, canned goods, pasta, soap, etc.), which help them tremendously as they live on a meager pension. It is a blessing to be able to help these dear people by giving them love, friendship, and the message of salvation.
