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 most years we assist more than 10,000 Israelis; more than 200 give their hearts to Messiah.
Alem* is a 25-year-old university student living in the northern area of Ethiopia. When she was 15, her family left their village to move to a larger town. It was during this time she discovered that she is Jewish. Her family had kept this heritage from her because of the persecution of Jewish people in their village.
Once she learned her spiritual heritage, she wanted to know more, so she began reading the Bible, including the New Testament. Over time, Yeshua (Jesus) revealed Himself to her in a dream and she fell in love with her Messiah.
Recently, Jacob’s Hope partnered with the Ethiopian Assemblies of God and Jewish believers, conducting a seminar for pastors and leaders on the importance of and strategies for reaching out to the Jewish population in Ethiopia. After the seminar, an outreach was provided to the community and several Jewish people accepted Yeshua as Messiah.
At the conclusion of the outreach, a baptismal service for 5 new believers included Alem who had never had an opportunity to publicly declare her faith. She was amazed to attend the seminar and outreach, discuss the Jewish roots in Ethiopia, and to see the flag of Israel and Ethiopia together. She expressed her desire to actively reach Jewish people in surrounding communities in the future as she continues her university studies.
