It all starts with obedience. Obedience to do our part in
following the Lord’s command to take the Gospel message to the lost. The
apostle Paul, in Romans 1:16 stated, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel
of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that
believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek (Gentiles).”
At Zion’s Hope, this is our mission mandate. From hosting traditional,
in-depth home Bible studies in Florida, to utilizing some of the most
advanced technology available in Israel to reach the unsaved, Zion’s
Hope missionaries are touching lives with the Gospel of Jesus Christ in truly
And while we eagerly desire that all people come to a saving knowledge
of the Messiah, Zion’s Hope has a unique emphasis on reaching out to the
Jewish community in strategic locations like South Florida and Jerusalem,
But simply stating an emphasis of ministering to Jewish people is not
enough to be an effective witness to them. It takes both action and a dedicated
team of people with the right training and a proper understanding of God’s
Word to serve in this capacity. It also takes a commitment to care
deeply for people - for their spiritual needs, but also for their physical and
Our mission team understands that being an effective witness for Christ
can many times require them to “get their hands dirty” and sometimes can
require great sacrifice.
But every person they meet is different, with a distinct background and
a unique set of circumstances that surround their lives. So each Zion’s
Hope missionary has a unique ministry focus.
Some, like Marion Rosenthal in South Florida, work tirelessly, teaching
several home Bible studies each week. She works closely with the elderly
and the unloved. Many of these individuals have lost their spouses and are
alone. Marion picks up groceries for them, drives them to doctor
appointments, counsels them, and teaches them. With sensitivity to their
cultural roots and distinctive Jewish upbringing, she graciously and
uncompromisingly shares the truth of God’s Word with hungry hearts.
Others of our team like John in Jerusalem work within the structure of a
local body of believers to teach the Bible and evangelize through a
variety of innovative methods. These include personal, one-on-one tract
distribution, newspaper and billboard advertising, and the development
of a dynamic, Bible-based website that provides answers to questions that
Jewish people have concerning Jesus. Understanding Jewish culture and customs
are one of the keys to reaching these people and helping them understand
that Jesus is the One of whom their prophets foretold, and the fulfillment of
their own Old Testament Scriptures.
Still others of our team, like Tony, work not only among the Jewish
Russian immigrants in Israel, but also amongst the Arab community. His bold
witness includes hosting free, one-day Bible teaching tours into the
beautiful Judean desert and multi-day tours into Jordan to teach onsite
at Mt. Nebo, Petra, and other biblical locations. Tony has realized that
one of the greatest assets he has been given is the ability to teach the Bible
onsite in the actual historical places where these biblical events
occurred. His passion to evangelize in these locations is truly remarkable, but
comes with personal risk.
David, a native-born Israeli works with Israeli soldiers who have been
injured in service as well as Israeli citizens who have been injured in
terrorist attacks. As a former Israeli Army paratrooper who was wounded
in action, he has a unique ability to gain entrance into their lives and
bring them comfort and hope with the saving message of the Gospel.
These and other courageous individuals serve as part of the vital and
vibrant work that the Lord is doing through the ministry of Zion’s Hope.
We ask for your prayers for our mission team - for increased opportunities
to share the love of our Messiah, for safety, and for blessing.
