During our extraordinary evangelism campaign in Jerusalem during Shavuot (Pentecost) we saw God move in a mighty way, touching hearts and transforming lives of those who got to hear the gospel for the first time ever.
Seeing people’s response overwhelms us with gratitude, all while pushing us forward to reaching more people and spreading the kingdom of God all across Israel.
This land is quite complex, especially when it comes to evangelism and discipleship. Which is why it’s so amazing to witness real hunger for God awakened in people who are hearing the message of salvation for the first time.
When you witness so many people stand up to receive the Lord during altar call, you know you’re witnessing something extraordinary, you’re standing in the middle of a harvest.
Anyone that has ever worked in the garden knows that there’s a process to it, nothing happens overnight and it’s definitely not a one-day’s work.
That is where our Follow Up Team of truly amazing and devoted leaders come into place. They work tirelessly to reach each person to firstly bring them to our evangelism campaign, then they spend all their time connecting with each one individually, so that we give each “seeker” an opportunity to become a part of our weekly church services, receive prayer, encouragement, support, free bibles and materials.
This type of work and relationship building atmosphere is not a one time occasion. It has to be heartfelt, intentional and strategic in the way people are reached and nurtured.
After all, Jesus fed the people before He ever taught a word to them. People need to know we genuinely care. We’re not here for the numbers. We’re here for each one.
That is what our Follow Up Team’s work is all about. The work you help support, which is so crucial in reaching so many Israelis that are seeking God.
How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in?
And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard?
And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
And how can anyone preach unless they are sent?
As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
Your supporting this work makes it possible for the gospel to reach more Israelis, fulfilling God’s prophecies regarding this nation, until “…all Israel shall be saved!” (Romans 11:26)
