Coming Home to Jesus: Working with Russian Holocaust Survivors

Since 2011, we have been holding special events in Israel to assist the Russian Holocaust survivors; in addition we provide them with financial and humanitarian support on an on-going basis. These survivors in the main have no pension from Russia or Israel, and no war compensation from Germany. They are one of the poorest groups in Israel. Rejected by many in the West for not being 'proper Jews' because of their Soviet heritage, but yet Jewish enough to go through the Holocaust; they need our help.

In these meetings I introduce them to Jesus, a Jew just like them. I know the only way to receive healing for the wounds of the past is to receive the peace and love that only He can give. Jesus says, 'Behold I stand at the door and knock. If any man will open the door, I will come in!' I try to tell people how easy it is to receive Him. All you have to do is be like a drowning man: stop struggling, let go of your tiny piece of flotsam and come into His open arms.

Please remember to pray for our work with these Survivors; we are going back to Israel in May. We must work for their benefit whilst there is still time.

I would encourage you to listen to today's podcast, 'Come Home', as I pray with these survivors to receive this peace into their hearts. Click here for 'Come Home' Podcast
