2016 August: Bringing Gospel to Lost Sheep

View mission grant resources below.

Grant Amount: $100,000null

  • To recruit, train and deploy indigenous leaders for mission work among the Lost Sheep of Israel in Israel where 90 percent of the over 6 million Jewish people do not confess Jesus as the Messiah.

This LWML Mission Grant will be used for mission work among the Lost Sheep of Israel IN Israel through Apple of His Eye Mission Society in Israel. Bold steps need to be taken to do the hard work of seed sowing so that God’s spirit can draw people to himself by convicting them of sin and planting faith to follow Him. This is important because Jewish people are dying without faith in Christ. The funds will be used to help identify and train Israeli Jewish believers to develop systems and strategies for outreach and planting house fellowships, just as in the days of the early church.
