What is your story? We all have a story to tell about what Yeshua (Jesus) means to us and how we ended up following in his footsteps. Each one is profoundly different, yet each one brings glory to God. Our testimonies have the power to help bring others to faith, as we witness the truth of Yeshua and testify to his great work in our lives.
“Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Messiah have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.” (Revelation 12:10-11)
All in all, our teaching and testimony videos have been watched over 55 million times over the past 4 years!
Have you ever wondered how all these ONE FOR ISRAEL testimonies come into being? Here is one of our key workers behind the scenes, dedicated to letting these powerful stories of Jewish and Arab believers be heard throughout the world.
Staff In The Spotlight: Anastasia
Anastasia is the Chief Editor for our Hebrew and English testimonies. She produces many of our videos in our studio here in Netanya and also in New York.
She joins us from the most southern city in Israel, Eilat, where she used to work in the Red Sea underwater observatory. She is currently sharpening her skills by studying a course in Media, Advertising, and Art Direction so we can reach more Israelis than ever before. She is also working towards her BA in Biblical Studies at ONE FOR ISRAEL’s Bible college, Israel College of the Bible.
She not only directs videos but also helps to present topics on the other side of the camera. She loves existential philosophy, apologetics, art and drawing. Her favorite parts of the job are choosing the right music for the videos and that moment when they are recording someone’s testimony and they “break through the wall,” and that person becomes a friend.

At ONE FOR ISRAEL’s Bible college, one of the challenges we’ve had is securing housing for our international and Israeli students. But now, thanks to a generous matching donation from one of our partners, we are looking to double the student housing we own, from one dormitory apartment to two!
This will be especially beneficial for many of our Israeli students, who, because of their belief in Jesus, face persecution and a lack of support from family and friends. Finding themselves in spiritual, emotional, and financial need, the opportunity to live with fellow believers in affordable dormitory housing is critical. Because of the matching donation, we’re halfway to our goal of buying the apartment, but we need your help. Interested in partnering with us?
