Mortage Interest

Michael is a Jewish man from the Chicago area. Several years ago he sold his apartment to a couple who were Jewish believers in Jesus. Since Michael had financed the apartment for this couple, they sent their mortgage payments directly to him each month. Printed on each check were the words Jesus Is the Jewish Messiah.

Apparently because of that, Michael became interested in the gospel—interested enough to visit a local church where he studied the Scriptures with the pastor. Then one summer, while Michael was visiting the Taste of Chicago, a huge food festival attended by several million people each year, he received a Jews for Jesus broadside called Junk Food."

Michael read the broadside but did not stop to talk with the campaigner who had given it to him. However, a couple of days later he did call the number on the back of the broadside. Through that call, he ended up meeting with David Brickner, one of our missionaries who now heads the Chicago branch. The seed had been planted long before. Over the years it had been watered by several others, and now it was ready to bring forth fruit. David had the joy of leading Michael in prayer to receive Christ as his Savior.
