Message from Bob

Shalom from Australia!
I've been privileged to serve with Jews for Jesus for 35 years and appreciate all the collegiality that I've experienced in the ministry back in the US and elsewhere. It's my hope that you will be able to sort out the issues of faith for yourself and discover the blessedness of Messiah, and if you are already a believer, to find others with whom to walk this out.

Bio & Testimony

Bob Mendelsohn is the leader of Jews for Jesus' work in Sydney, Australia. He grew up in an Orthodox Jewish family in Kansas City, but became a college drop-out when he decided to look for the meaning of life in the counterculture of the '60s. He found meaning and relevance in Jesus which caused him much trouble at home. But he says, It was worth the cost." Bob has worked for Jews for Jesus since 1979, and served as the leader of our work in Washington DC and New York City before moving to Sydney in 1998. Bob and his wife Patty both graduated from the University of Kansas and Fuller Seminary. The Mendelsohns live in Sydney near their son. Their two daughters and one grandson live in the US.

Prayer and Support

Just now it's summer in Sydney and we need prayer for continued outreach among the Jewish people here, in other cities of Australia (Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth...) and in New Zealand (Auckland, Christchurch, Wellington) and in Singapore. That's our region and we cover it with prayer and with our traveling frequently.
Please pray for the Jewish people that their eyes would be opened.
Please pray for Jewish people to drop into our Book Shop and to be willing to learn from us. And for all those who have been coming to continue to process the information and the witness we did share.
Please pray for our weekly Bible classes to be meaningful and clear. It's only for Jewish people and their families.
Please pray for the monthly "OneNewMan" gatherings as they are gaining momentum, and where Jew and non-Jew can meet together in fellowship and in learning. It seems to be doing well, and may become a church in due course.
One final prayer. Please pray for Katie Miller-Crispe who is organizing my church preachments into 2014. Please pray for her to be connecting with all the right folks.

We are hoping to create a Messianic Jewish Community Centre in Sydney (a ministry building) where ministry life can happen and which will attract many Jewish people to Jesus.  Please pray as the plans are developing.We will need much by way of help when that building process begins. We will need volunteers to join us when the building is up and running, too.
