Amy Downey of Tzedakah Ministries recently visited our church and gave a presentation concerning the mission of that ministry to God’s chosen people. Knowing that our small church would barely be able to cover traveling expenses (if that); Amy came to share the good news of ‘God at work’ in the Jewish community and the passion that she has for His work. The hearts of the people were touched by the stories of God’s love being lived and expressed into the lives of others. We were blessed by our time together. The biggest contribution of our small church is in supporting this ministry with our prayers. Amy knows and values the power of prayer. I am sure that you will be blessed if you will open your hearts to the message of love embraced by Amy and Tzedakah Ministries. — James Frazier, Former Pastor of Nutrioso Bible Church (Nutrioso, AZ)

Amy, may God continue to bless your ministry and campaign!” — James T. Cater, Pastor of Candlestick Bible Church (Pembroke Pines, FL)

Tzedakah Ministries is a ministry that serves the Kingdom by equipping the local church with the tools they need to bring the good news to the lost remnant of Israel. Amy Downey is a true Romans 9 and 10 servant in Yeshua. Her main function with the saints is to build them up in Christ so that they may be equipped to bring to Good News of Salvation of Yeshua ha’Mashiach, to the Jewish people. The resources that this ministry offers helps many to sharpen their skills in Jewish evangelism. As the founder of Tzedakah Ministries, Amy has devoted her life to helping local church members. I have spent time speaking with Amy and I have seen her fire for the lost. I recommend that you to have her come and help you train up your brothers and sisters.
