Unrest in Israel takes its toll and makes ministry there more difficult. Eugene L., who ministers in Maale Adumim, a community not far from Jerusalem, reports regular stone-throwing attacks upon the city’s light rail, as well as private cars and commercial buses that service the city. Despite these hazards, life goes on—and so does ministry. Eugene reports, “Spiritually hungry Jewish seekers continue to gather at least once a week for our Bible studies, often changing buses three times to get there. Two people have decided to be baptized and more have been calling us to request prayer or other forms of help.”
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.
