David and Hanna Harris* grew up in Baptist churches, but these days they visit Jewish synagogues, study Hebrew, and take part in Passover meals. As IMB Journeymen they moved from their small town in Kentucky to a megacity in South America to share gospel truth with Jews living there. Part of the process is learning the language and culture of those they’ve come to reach.
The center celebrates Jewish holidays such as Purim and Passover, but always uses the opportunities to bridge to New Testament gospel truths.
Since the first Jews immigrated to this city in the nineteenth century, there has been a thriving community, now numbering more than 200,000. The Harrises, both 25, work at a Messianic Center in the heart of the Jewish community. The center celebrates Jewish holidays such as Purim and Passover, but always uses the opportunities to bridge to New Testament gospel truths. David and Hanna hope that “the veil will be removed from their eyes, and that the truth of the Messiah be made abundantly clear to them.”
