David only wanted his dad to love him. He grew up in an observant Jewish home, where attending synagogue was at the center of their lives. His brother became mentally ill and was in and out of the hospital. David wondered if he would ever get his brother back and was deeply afraid his close relationship with his brother was irreparably broken. One day, when they were both in the early years of adulthood, David found his brother sitting at the table and talking to his mom… about Jesus. Over the next few weeks he noticed that his brother had changed and David had to know the source of what saved him form his tumultuous life. David’s father was angry about the decision of both brothers to follow Yeshua.
As a result, David had second thoughts about becoming a follower of Yeshua, but few years later David stopped running and decided to give His life to the Messiah Jesus and found shalom.
