Messianic ministry continues to reach Israelis via Internet

Israel Today has for years been covering the Internet-based evangelism efforts of One For Israel, a team of young Israeli Messianic new media professionals.

One For Israel's latest newsletter reveals that not only has the ministry remained active, it is growing considerably both in activity and reach.

As an example, One For Israel noted that over just the past seven days, "we were contacted via our websites by 6 different people around Israel who stated an authentic desire to learn more about the Lord Yeshua (Jesus)."

Among those who made contact were two teenage girls doing a report on Messianic Judaism for their school and a young man who identified himself as a homosexual eager to learn more about Yeshua.

"Three out of the six who contacted us asked to be connected with a local congregation/church as soon as possible," according to the newsletter.

As a reminder of the growing curiosity (and hunger) among Israelis for information regarding faith in Yeshua, One For Israel published statistics showing that every month 18,000 Israelis search Google for the term "redemption," and over 22,000 search for "Yeshua."

On their own series of websites, One For Israel offers a free copy of the New Testament in three versions: MP3 (audio), hard copy and an app for smartphones. A hard copy New Testament is requested once every 35 hours, and the MP3 and smartphone versions are downloaded as much as five times every day.

The ministry recently moved to new facilities at Israel College of the Bible, a Messianic college located in the coastal town of Netanya. One For Israel hopes to increase their already impressive efforts with the new television and audio recording studios now available to them.
