The vast majority of these programmes are recorded in Israel … I visit the places where the people live. But for today’s programme, I met my guest, who is called Gefen, in London. She was here from Tel Aviv during the summer working with a team of fellow missionaries from Jews for Jesus – an organisation that works in major cities around the world to share their faith with Jewish people. However, the reality is they talk to far more non-Jews! So, I asked Gefen, what’s it like going out onto the streets of London wearing a Jews for Jesus T shirt handing out tracts and talking to people about Jesus?
My guest today is Jewish … she is an American Jew from San Francisco and is currently working in the Jews for Jesus headquarters there using her skills in the field of creative communications. Still a young woman, she has been through some tough times which, as you will hear have honed her faith and given her a clear understanding of who she is.
This programme is all about telling the stories of both Jewish and Arab believers in Jesus, most of whom live in Israel. However, my guest today, although he is Jewish, is a missionary based in Budapest. His name is Avi Schneider and he is the European Director of Jews for Jesus. He has worked in many Eastern European countries including the former Soviet Union, as he now explains.
