Darrel & Suzan Simmons (Texas)

Ministry Mobilizers / Dallas, Texas

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

We represent FOI Program Ministries as Ministry Mobilizers. We travel and meet with students at Bible colleges to share about FOI and ways in which those we meet may become involved with Jewish ministry.

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

Our prayer is that in all we do for the Lord through FOI we will encourage others prayerfully to consider reading Scripture more, to learn of God's plan for Israel, become friends to the Jewish people, and to glorify God in their lives.

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

To those we meet who want to share the love of the Messiah with others we like to bring into the conversations how important it is to pray, to be friendly, and to kindly challenge others with questions about their relationship with God and even what God's plan is for their lives.

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

“But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.” (Romans 1:16)

“I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles.” (Romans 11:11)

“I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” (Genesis 12:3)

Who is the most influential person in your spiritual life? What books have you read (other than the Bible) that have impacted your spiritual life most?

The most influential person in my spiritual life is most assuredly my Savior, Jesus the Messiah. My father, a pastor; my mother, a prayer warrior; and many godly men within the local church helped to guide me.

An impactful book: What On Earth Is God Doing? by Renald Showers.
