“The Armor of God - Faith and Flaming Arrows”
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day
of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after
you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with
the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the
breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet
fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
16
In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which
you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
Ephesians 6:13-16

JEWS FOR JESUS
Jews for Jesus global missionary teams in Ukraine,
Russia, Hungary, Israel and Himalayan foothills (where scores of Israeli
trek) face many challenges in their outreach work. In France we were
encouraged with the arrival of a missionary family from Canada, Karl and
Christen de Souza, who have joined Joshua Turnil (JFJ Director, France)
and Chantale Onona, a young Swiss lady. Jacques Caruel, a volunteer and
brilliant accordionist, is warmly received in the Jewish community in Nimes,
France and we continue to do missionary trips to Marseille.
Deborah and I went through a time of uncertainty over our future in
Switzerland asking for discernment whether to return to England . The
answer seems to be a clear "No" and we have begun the "rentrée" assured
by the Lord that we should stay here. Recently the Lord has opened some
amazing doors, including for Deborah, a wonderful teaching post (she is
still in her trial period, so please pray).
God has provided unexpected and unusual opportunities to witness to
Jewish people. An Orthodox Rabbi has become a personal friend and
invited me to a Sabbath service where I was introduced to the
August
congregation. He also invited me to a Bible (Torah) study at the family of
Salaam Alaikum
one of his flock and I told them about my belief in Jesus. Most recently he
September
attended a conference given in our home to a private group of Jewish
PACTEC
people ("Le Cercle de Reflexion"). Thirty people, mostly atheistic Jews,
gathered to hear me speak on "Les Juifs et Jésus." The opposition was
October
palpable, but stronger was the firm hand of the Lord, thanks to the
LINK Au Pairs
encouraging presence of Christian friends spreading the aroma of Christ.
November
Jews4Jesus, Suisse A major question now (and prayer request): how do I follow this up?
July

December
YFC Middle East
As we continue our ministry witnessing to Jewish people across
Switzerland, please pray that God would open their hearts to the Gospel
and that He would give us the words to boldly preach the Gospel.
