Israel

Only about two percent of the population of Israel are evangelical Christians; most follow Judaism. Strong cultural ties make it is hard for a Jew to convert to Christianity, or become a Messianic Jew. There is a significant need for missionaries with a passion for Israel,
especially for the Jews.
