The time of year has come when we begin to be inundated with appeal letters from Christian and not-so-Christian organizations, all dramatizing their needs. This can become a bewildering and even disillusioning experience for those who really want to serve God and support his work. It might help you gain a proper perspective if you could regard those approaches the same way that you regard all advertising or sales brochures.
I have been a missionary with the Jews for Jesus ministry for seven years. I can't say that it's ever been boring. I am currently working with our Los Angeles branch, but for the first 3-1/2 years that I was on staff, I traveled with the Liberated Wailing Wall, our musical mobile evangelistic team.
QUESTION: I recently heard a speaker down here in Charlotte, North Carolina, who suggested that the Holocaust never really happened. In view of what six million Jews and other innocent people suffered at the hand of the Nazis, I find this very distressing and wonder if you have any literature or information to counteract that false insinuation.
This is my testimony, so I have to talk a lot about myself, but I'm not a hero. I'm just an ordinary guy who found Jesus. I'm a Christian. I used to be an Orthodox Jew, and a crook—not that those are by any means synonymous—but that's who and what I was.
