Before we set off on a journey, we meticulously plan our route, we calculate the time the journey will take, and we prepare all of the necessary logistics in order to reach our destination. We can look at this new year of 2022 that lies before us in a similar fashion. We choose to set our direction and our goals according the leading of the Holy Spirit, and pray for the grace and strength not to falter on the path set before us.
I would to thank you for standing with us throughout 2021. Your prayers and support have helped us tremendously in preaching the Gospel and help the people of Israel with humanitarian aid in a wide variety of forms.
Undoubtedly, in order for us to continue standing strong in prayer and in support of God’s people, it’s also necessary to understand the importance of our goal. The apostle Paul was so passionate and eager for the salvation of God’s people, so much so that he spoke the following words to us in Romans 9:1-5
“I speak the truth in Christ—I am not lying, my conscience confirms it through the Holy Spirit— 2 I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. 3 For I could wish that I myself were cursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my people, those of my own race, 4 the people of Israel. Theirs is the adoption to sonship; theirs the divine glory, the covenants, the receiving of the law, the temple worship and the promises. 5 Theirs are the patriarchs, and from them is traced the human ancestry of the Messiah, who is God over all, forever praised! Amen.”
And in Romans 10:1 “ Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved.
Like Paul, our desire and passion is to bring the Good News to our people—the nation of Israel. Our prayer is that the Lord will open their hearts to receive the message of salvation that can only found in Yeshua, and that they might be saved. I invite you to join us on our journey and in our work for the Kingdom of God through 2022.
In this new year of 2022, we are taking a bold step of faith and are starting a new and impacting evangelistic initiative which we believe will revolutionize the lives of multitudes of Israel as they hear the Gospel message of Christ. This project will see us taking groups of non-believers on evangelistic excursions by bus to Biblical sites to connect them to their historical roots as Jews, but also to show them their connection to the Messiah of Israel—Yeshua.
We are undertaking this new evangelism project completely in faith, as we do not have the funds necessary to conduct this project throughout 2022 at all. We believe though that God always provides where He leads though.
I invite you to take hands with us this year. Pray with us and believe with us for the salvation of Israel. If the Holy Spirit leads you, then I would ask that you sow into our work for God here in the land where it all began. The salvation of the nation of Israel draws near, and it will have a ripple effect on the world as we’ve never seen before, as we read the words of Paul in Romans 11:15 – “For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?”
