Anna and Vladimir Bortsov, who serve in the Toronto area, befriended a young man, Ronald,* who recently emigrated from Israel with his wife, Sarah,* and two kids. As a trusting relationship developed, the Bortsovs shared the Gospel with them. Little by little, Ronald and Sarah opened up to the Lord. Finally, as they gathered together for tea and conversation, Ronald and Sarah made decisions to pray. At that moment the doorbell rang. Another neighbor, Violetta,* dropped in. She began to ask questions, and the Bortsovs explained the Gospel. As they did so, Ronald and Sarah’s twelve-year-old son, Samuel,* who had been sitting on the sofa listening quietly, came to the table and announced that he also wanted to receive the Lord, so did Violetta. Thus four new souls became children of God!

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.
