JEWISH BELIEVERS BAPTIZED! Short Term Missions Trip: Summer 2014

Posted by Abraham Sandler , 13 January 2014 · 1076 views

Jeremiah 29:11-13 “For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”

This past August Janet and Abe celebrated 50 years of marriage. We had a great celebration with our four sons and their families. On December 21st Abe rejoiced and thanked God that it was 57 years ago that he came to faith in Yeshua as his Messiah, Savior, and Lord. Hallelujah! March 2014 will be 50 years that Abe and Janet have served the Lord reaching Jewish people through the C&MA. Lots of 50’s are happening. We are excited for the future and we believe we will see greater things in the days to come!

Messiah’s Lighthouse Congregation, in New York City, is making steady progress with 30-35 in attendance at our weekly service on Friday evening. Our demographic is about half Jewish and half Gentile attending. Unsaved Jews and Gentiles visit nearly every week. Please continue to pray for Vivian, Esther, Jane, Sharon to be saved.

This year we had six Jewish people come to faith in Jesus and four Gentiles come to faith also. On January 10 we had a baptismal service for two of the new Jewish believers. See the story of Iris on our previous blog, http://ecommunity.cm...ppy-in-my-life/

Abe is training three men from the congregation to be leaders. They all feel that God may be calling them to fulltime ministry; we are beginning a program in February to prepare them. They all want to work in our Jewish ministry in New York City. Pray for Eric, Warren and Rich. Pray also for Abe, who will be their counselor and assist them as they prepare.

In 2013 we had witnessing campaigns in Seattle, WA, New York. Thousands of tracts were given out, hundreds were engaged in conversation during which we presented the Gospel. Several decisions for Jesus were made! From all three campaigns we had over 50 Jews and Gentiles (both saved and unsaved) wanting more information about Jesus or help in witnessing to Jewish friends. We have followed all of them up and will continue to do so.

Our plant in Seattle WA is making progress. David and Peggy, our lay couple, are very faithful in leading a monthly Bible study and doing Jewish evangelism. Abe goes to Seattle 4-5 times a year to train and assist them in the outreach. On his last trip in December we celebrated Hanukah and had over 50 people in attendance including several unsaved Jews and Gentiles. Abe also had opportunity to speak at a local church in the city and gave a seminar on how to witness to Jewish people for the congregation.

Short-term missions opportunities in 2014: Seattle [one in May and one in June] and in NYC: August 13 -23. Contact us for more information on how to be a part of these campaigns! See our flyer attached.

Our great need is for more workers in the Jewish field. 99.7% of Jewish people are unsaved and unreached in a way that they can hear and understand that Jesus is the promised Jewish Messiah.

We also need our C&MA districts that have significant numbers of Jewish people in their boarders to include this unreached, cross-cultural people group in their outreach. Abe can train and resource them and help guide in the outreach. Please pray for opportunities to assist districts in Jewish missions.

For God’s Glory and Israel’s Salvation,

Abe and Janet Sandler
