A member of our West Coast staff was introduced to a secular Jewish man, Yaakov,* an 88-year-old Holocaust survivor who had spent over five years in a concentration camp. They discussed at length who the Messiah is and explored a number of verses from the Hebrew Bible including Isaiah 53. They also spoke about how our sins must be forgiven on the Messiah’s terms. Then, Yaakov prayed to turn from his ways and to receive Jesus as his Messiah. Not long after his life-changing decision, Yaakov passed away. Please pray that our staff may continue to minister to Yaakov’s family.
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.
