Brooklyn Messianic Congregational Leader, Rich Flashman, had the great privilege of baptizing Shmuel,* the Jewish Israeli soldier who gave his life to Yeshua (Jesus) earlier this year. After Shmuel’s baptism service, Rich took him, his cousin, and Shmuel’s unbelieving brother, Joey,* out for a meal. Over dinner, the Lord opened the door of Joey’s heart as Rich shared the Gospel with him. At one point in the conversation Rich asked, “Have you read Isaiah 53?” Joey replied that he had. Rich then asked, “Who do you think the prophet was speaking about?” Joey said, “There can be no doubt, it’s Jesus.” Please pray the Holy Spirit will press the truth and the incomparable value of the Gospel onto Joey’s heart.
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.
