03. Life-Changing Encounter With Jesus

I was born into a Jewish family, lived for a year in Israel during the time of the Six Day War, and never had the slightest interest in Jesus or Christianity.  However, in 1978, when I was on my way to report a teacher who was evangelizing in a public school, Jesus Christ came and sat in the passenger seat of my car and said, “I Am Who they say I Am. I Am the Son of God.”  With tears of repentance and total commitment to my newfound Savior, I changed direction, ran toward Jesus, and never looked back. I entered a path that has led to me founding a fruitful womens’ ministry in 1983 and taking the Gospel to over 25 nations. “For I know the plans that I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
