Larry & Eleanor Mitchell (Canada)

Field Ministries Representatives / Calgary, Alberta, Canada

What is unique to your role at The Friends of Israel?

Location, location, location. I have had the opportunity to take several Israelis out for hikes in the mountains. Eleanor and I have also been able to host several Israeli tourists in our home.

What inspires you most to do what you do for FOI?

I love my Bible, and I love the Chosen People. To quote Corrie Ten Boom, “You can’t love God without loving the Jewish people.”

What is one bit of wisdom you have for those who want to share the love of the Messiah with others?

You need to be so focused on the Lord and the Bible that people see the Messiah in your life and actions.

What Scripture compels you the most to do what you do?

“When I say to the wicked, ‘O wicked man, you shall surely die!’ and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand” (Ezekiel 33:8).

“Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God" (Isaiah 40:1, KJV).

Who is the most influential person in your spiritual life?

Probably Francis Schaeffer or Keith Green

Code: SC021
