Here is the report from Calgary, Alberta:
We would venture to speculate that the recent Israeli and world political events are having a positive influence on our outreach effectiveness as more Jewish people are starting to have a heightened interest in what is going on worldwide. We believe it is a good moment to invite others in Calgary to join our team and expand the efforts. Please pray for blessings and direction by the Lord in this matter!
Shalom shalom from Calgary,
We decided this week to go to the senior living apartments even though we didn’t hear from the administration in regards to permission. As it turned out it was Bingo night. We knocked on all the doors with mezuzahs. Out of the 48 apartments in this building, only 13 had them. There were 8 no answers but we hope to come back again for those who were absent. Two sets were accepted. The first man was very pleased that we had come, took quite a long look at the set and graciously received it. Another lady was very pleased to receive her set. We had 3 refusals as they said they already had several Tanakhs but one lady said she also had a NT. One 94 yr old very distinguished gentleman invited us in and was very happy to listen as Nigel spoke about Yeshua and the New Covenant as spoken of in Jeremiah. He commented that Nigel was well educated in the Scriptures. He explained that he had several copies of the Tanakh but declined the NT.
After we left we decided to get a card for his operation which we slipped under the door. I found the perfect one with a hen on the front. Inside it said, “Henrietta would prefer you make vegetable soup”. We invited him to read Isaiah 53 and put our card inside the envelope. Even though he declined the NT we felt like we’d walked into each other’s hearts. May he and his daughter be drawn to read Isaiah 53 and there find the Messiah!
