Julia Fisher’s weekly radio broacast

Programme 356: Ann Carroll

Today I’m in a very busy coffee shop in Jerusalem talking to Ann who came to live in Israel from Texas at the age of 40 about 20 years ago. It wasn’t until her teens that Ann discovered she was Jewish and that changed everything for her. It took her a while to settle in the country but now she is involved with other believers and including meeting with Arab Christians as she now describes.

Programme 355: Suzanne & Simon Minchal

Today I’m in Jaffa, Israel, the Biblical port city that today lies just south of Tel Aviv, visiting the headquarters of Shevet Achim, a Christian organisation that makes it possible for children with serious heart defects who live in Muslim nations surrounding Israel, to come to Israeli hospitals for intricate heart surgery. This unique work was started by Jonathan Miles just over 20 years ago and in that time hundreds of children from places like Gaza, Syria, Jordan, Iraq and Kurdistan have been able to come to Israel for life saving operations.

Programme 353: Jim Schultz (part 2 of 3)

My guest again this week is Jim Schultz, who today is the executive director of a humanitarian aid organisation based in Israel called the Joseph Project. Jim trained as a lawyer in America, but gave it all up because he and his wife believed God was calling them to a different sort of work. A chapter in the Bible, Isaiah 49, given to them on their wedding day and on several occasions after that became a pivotal factor in their prayers and thinking and for 5 years they waited.

Programme 351: Katherine Snyder (part 2 of 2)

Today we’re in Jerusalem in an old shopping mall in the Jaffa Road to meet Katherine Snyder who is the director of a counselling service she started called Anchor of Hope. The Messianic body in Israel may be relatively small, but Katherine, a professional counsellor herself, knew for a long time that many people needed help but none was available. This is the story of how one woman followed her dream and is now seeing that dream realised.

Programme 349: Eddie Santoro (part 5 of 5)

On my last trip to Israel to record stories for this programme, I spent some time with Eddie Santoro. Born into a traditional Jewish family in America, he became a hippie but today he’s the pastor of a large Messianic congregation in Jerusalem. He’s recently recovered from brain cancer and was declared cancer free. After sharing his story, the next morning he woke up with pain in his throat …. had the cancer returned?
