Staff member Robin met Ran* backpacking in New Zealand. They talked for a long time about the difference between religion and knowing God personally and believing the Bible. Robin encouraged him to read the prophecies and to read the Gospel and see what Jesus says about Himself. The next day, Ran pulled Robin aside and said, “I want to talk to you.” Ran shared that he was thinking about their previous conversation. He said in the army he sometimes read his Bible and found wisdom there but saw it as moral fables. Robin talked about historic truth and God’s faithfulness to Israel and prophecies foretold then fulfilled. He decided it was time to read a gospel to explore if there is more to the Hebrew Scriptures and this book (the New Testament) than moral lessons. Pray that Ran will open his heart to the Messiah!
