Philippe and Analee Israel have been serving the Lord with Life in Messiah in France for over 10 years. Philippe is a native of France, while Analee grew up in Brazil, the daughter of missionaries. They met while students at Philadelphia Biblical University (now Cairn) and married in 2009. The Israels are the parents of five boys: Eitan, Noah, Liam, Dany, and Matteo, who was born on December 12, 2020.
Philippe and Analee work to share the gospel with Jewish people in and around Paris. They disciple new Christians, and help to equip churches to share the good news of Jesus, the Messiah. They do this in many ways. Philippe does a lot of street and online evangelism. He collaborates with a friend from Jews for Jesus to design and publish Gospel tracts to distribute. They have also published 54 episodes of an online comic book, “La Paracha de Joel”, which is well-received by young people, and points them to Jesus, the Messiah. These comics can be found on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Every Friday night, with a friend from Chosen People, Philippe broadcasts the Torah passage of the week, seeking to make clear how the scripture relates to Jesus. These are just a few of the ways the Israels are sharing the Gospel in France.
Philippe and Analee ask us to pray for:
-A young Jewish lady who accepted Jesus a year ago. Analee is discipling her.
- A young man to whom Philippe has been witnessing for several years.
- France, which is in danger from Islamic terror groups.
