JEWISH EVANGELISM cont.

If only we would all do as Cathy and her husband do, and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the Jewish people!

PEACEMAKERS

I told the story of  evangelizing a Jewish man named Al here, but there were others. In the nursing home, where we did Sunday services, there were many Jewish people.

There was…

Joseph – Joseph was a relative of a resident at the nursing home. He was a survivor of the holocaust. He told us about the awful things he went through during WW2. Many times when we saw him he would smile and reach into his pocket to give us a hard candy. That was his trademark of sorts.
