Chosen People Ministries has an active ministry at two prominent universities in New York: one in lower Manhattan on Fridays (with its 10,000 to 11,000 Jewish students) and one in upper Manhattan (8,000 Jewish students) on Mondays.
In lower Manhattan, quite a few Israeli students have been stopping at our table, especially when they see an old Israeli newspaper in Hebrew, Maariv, from 1948 when Israel became a state. Kiran* and Yoav* took literature in Hebrew as did the other Israelis. Yoav introduced us to his new bride of just a few days, Shoshana*, and took the excellent testimony book Why Me? by Yaakov Damkani.
In Queens, we can set up even on cold, wintry days as our space is indoors in the Jewish dining hall. It is quite spectacular that we can be in the Jewish dining hall! Ours is the only group given this particular table space…the other groups are in the main dining hall.
We thank you for your earnest prayers for these ministries on these three campuses! Paul’s heartfelt request is ours too: “Pray on my [our] behalf, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel” (Ephesians 6:19).
