Rev. Brent Johnson, Director
Our ministry is working around the world to bring hope to Jewish people, the “children of Jacob,” by bringing them humanitarian and medical aid, while sharing the good news of Messiah! We have ministry centers in a number of international locations, including the Holy Land.
Jacob’s Hope has opened 10 ministry centers in Israel. In 2014 we assisted almost 13,000 Israelis; more than 200 gave their hearts to Messiah.
The walls of the small home are adorned with the faces of past generations—pictures of grandparents, mother, father, sister and brother—all who had not survived the horrors of the Holocaust some seventy-seven years ago.
This is the home of Ms. E, the sole Holocaust survivor of her Jewish family. During our initial visit and introduction to her, she was guarded, sad, and cautious as she kindly served us homemade cake that her 93-year-old fingers had crafted. Ministry director, Brent Johnson, prayed for her before we left her home, but she did not want the prayer translated into her native German; she wanted to ‘sense’ the prayer.
Career missionary associates Michael and Judith Maurer have visited with her since then, sharing the goodness of Adonai with her. She has requested that anytime we are again in Israel, we visit her. She would like Brent to pray for her again. So, on a follow-up visit, Ms E had a smile and a sense of warmth and welcome that was clearly a genuine anticipation of her visitors. Again, Brent prayed for her, later to discover that she happily shared, “It was as if something left me and something new came in.”
The miracle of a transformed life—regardless of the cruel circumstances! This is Hope. That’s what Jacob’s Hope is all about—bringing compassion and sharing the Messiah with Jewish people in Israel and the nations.
