Director of International Ministries

Jesus commanded us to go. He told believers to share the good news—both close to home and to the ends of the earth. We at The Friends of Israel are thankful we have been able to equip people who are called to love the Jewish people all over the world. And we are only able to do this because of people like you supporting our ministry.

God is mightily working on the international scene through The Friends of Israel global team; from our around the clock free medical clinic in the heart of a Jewish neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Argentina where doctors and nurses are helping the hurting, both spiritually and physically—to our camp in Poland that welcomes children from the former Soviet Union who desperately need the eternal transforming love of the Messiah. Won’t you join us in changing lives eternally through the love of our Messiah? See how you can help by partnering with our workers all over the globe.

Our work in Australia began in 2004. In only a few short years the ministry there has grown again and again as well as expanding to the country of New Zealand.

FRANCE

Half a million Jewish people live in France. With the rise of Muslim and secular influence in the country, many Jewish people are living in a toxic anti-Semitism culture. Our worker in France works with the Jewish people encouraging them and being a friend. Many Sundays you can find him speaking in churches on biblical truth as it relates to Israel and God’s Chosen People as well as translating publications to give to both Christians and Jewish people.

GERMANY

The Friends of Israel Gospel Ministry officially began its work in Germany in 2015 with our first full-time worker. We are thankful God opened the door in Germany. It was because of the horrors of World War II and Nazi Germany that The Friends of Israel began as a relief organization to the Jewish people. Our worker has no shortage of opportunity to minister in the country. Sound biblical doctrine is needed among Christians and with the translation of Israel My Glory magazine into German, Israel Mein Erbe magazine is fast becoming an in-demand publication.

ISRAEL

We have two full-time workers in Israel, both have planted and are pastoring mature and growing assemblies where believers in the Messiah can grow and learn. Both churches are very active in their communities and resources are available for sharing the love of the Messiah to neighbors and strangers in many languages because of this ministry. God is at work in Israel and we are thankful to have been a vital part of that work since The Friends of Israel’s inception.

POLAND

The Friends of Israel’s heart is close to Poland. Our first executive director, Dr. Victor Buksbazen was born in Poland and lived there before making his way to the United States. Since 1963 we have had a worker present in the country.

Today, more than 50 years later, the ministry continues to thrive. Our workers are busy traveling throughout Eastern Europe taking supplies and medicine to Jewish people in need, holding Bible studies, and bringing hope to many countries of the former Soviet Union. They are also working hard to reverse the spread of anti-Semitism in Poland and surrounding areas by investing in the young people through children’s Bible camps and trips to to Israel.

Due to the sensitive nature of our work in Poland, we do not identify our workers.
