Ready for some GOOD NEWS from the Land of Israel?
Meet Jono Vandor & Ross Nichols
This program showcases the ‘good news’ stories from Israel, awesome Israeli technical inventions, and other stories of interest for the many people who support Israel. And if you are calling Israel (the people and the land) home, whether you are a Jew or a Gentile supporter of Israel, you will love this show!
Jono was brought up in Sydney, Australia, in the Protestant Christian faith -though he originally descends from Hungarian Jews. He attended church, went to Christian schools, and later obtained a Bachelor of Theology. Then, at the age of 40, and after exploration & additional learning, he refined his faith to the Jewish Bible. Jono’s website Truth2U.org is largely a reflection of his own personal journey out of Christianity and back to the original faith and practice of his fathers. -Jono later discovered that 70 years prior to this decision, his great grandfather had formally converted (amid great persecution during WW2 Hungary), from Judaism to Christianity. Jono currently lives with his wife and their two sons on the south coast of Victoria. He has been hosting the Israel On My Mind radio show since 2016.
