February 2019

Shalom in His Loving Name above All Names,

What exciting times we live in! This month of February, first of all, has a VERY special birthday, which is me! My 50 Year Jubilee is here and I am celebrating with a bang and a bash, with friends and family both in Los Angeles and in Netanya, Israel. As I write this, I'm anticipating my celebration tomorrow with my mother, father, sister and many friends, some I have not seen in decades from childhood.   Messianic Jewish music band Lev Shelo with Corry Bell, will be helping me to bring in my 50 Years with His jubilant Spirit and dancing.
Nothing like being with Emma (Mom) and Abba (Dad) for my Jubilee Birthday in America, to bless them and honor them for bringing me into this world. The Good Book says, to honor your Father and your Mother and this we did! Praise Adonai!

Then as you receive this letter, by His grace, I will be back in Israel, celebrating my Israeli Jubilee birthday party, with many Holocaust survivors, believer friends from all over the land, as well as Messianic musician Carolyn Hyde and my Israeli folk dancing friends, in a banquet hall. I wish you could all be here and there celebrating with me!
Above pictures are from my Israeli Jubilee Birthday Celebration.
Hallelu Et Adonai - Praise The Lord! 
Dear friends, if you didn't know this about me already, everything that God has called me to, is about celebrating the gift of life and eternal life. It is about providing the practical needs to the poor Jewish people of Israel, making their lives of better quality, and shining His eternal light, pointing to the only hope we have in Messiah Yeshua to this dark world.  


James 1:27, says: "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this, to look after the orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.


Matthew 5:16 -"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven." My speaking tour in the U.S.A. was absolutely fantastic as I share a couple highlights. I was able to speak to several big groups of Korean Christians that have a huge love for Israel and even have scriptures in Hebrew on the walls of their congregation.

Another great meeting was an invitation to speak to full classes of children at a Christian school, which lasted almost all day. I was able to pour insight and Biblical knowledge into the lives of over 300 children. This future generation received the real deal about the roots of their faith as well as the dangers of drugs, alcohol and the temptations of this world around us, as I shared my personal testimony.

I also asked them Bible trivia, as well as a question and answer time in which they asked great questions about the Bible, Israel and the Jewish People. It truly was life changing for all of us. There was such an impact, that the next day the teacher sent home to me a large pile of notes with blessings, thanks and reflections on what they heard from me, from the hundreds of fifth-twelfth grade children. Praise Adonai!

My friends, there is a very sweet tropical Spirit, that has connected with Abundant Bread of Salvation and that spirit has come in the form of believers from Hawaii. A recent soup kitchen was filled with mostly volunteers from Hawaii serving the packed wall-to-wall poor and needy people, a freshly prepared meal made by our highly skilled Hawaiian believer in Messiah. One of them even did a special Hawaiian worship hula dance, which ended with the recipients standing with smiles and applause.
We at Abundant Bread of Salvation are so blessed with Aloha and Mahalo!  

There are two more exciting things to end this newsletter; a request for prayer and an amazing praise report. This month will be capped off with a special outreach. Together with a group of fifteen Hawaiian believers taking a private bus together with at least thirty Holocaust survivors on a Biblical boat excursion on the Sea of Galilee. Shaloha!

The day will end with a royal five course home made lunch in the private ministry home of Messianic Musician Joshua Aaron, who will also be doing a live concert while they are feasting. This home has a glorious view that over looks the beautiful lake that Yeshua once walked and performed miracles on. We trust this will bear eternal fruit. Please see the Facebook page: Abundant Bread of Salvation, for live clips and pics from this eventful day around the Sea. 

Last very exciting news! Abundant Bread of Salvation has been granted the highest certification for proper record keeping and financial accountability by the State of Israel. My friends, these things do not come easy in Israel. Rejoice with us and continue your faithful prayers and abundant support.

Philippians 4 says: "Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say, rejoice!"

January 2019

To all our Precious friends, old and new,

Let us take this time to wish you a precious Happy New Year 2019, as we continue the magnificent work that God has called us to in saving and serving our Jewish People here in this God given Land, Eretz Israel (The Land of Israel).  Being the first month of the year, for us there is much to be grateful and thankful for in all that was done in the past year in the precious name of our Living Savior!  Friends, lives were changed and provided for now and for eternity.  Halleluyah!  Looking to the fast-paced days ahead of us, we reflect and meditate on the scripture in Revelation 21:5, which says, "He who was seated on the throne said, I am making everything new! Then He said, write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."  We know that some of you reading this are thinking, "When is God going to use me?"  Well, let me encourage you by saying that just the fact that you are reading this, you are being His hands and feet by doing your part in letting Him who sits on the throne use you to bless Israel by praying for us, volunteering with us and supporting the work of Abundant Bread of Salvation. Maybe, you are supposed to start this year supporting a Holocaust Survivor this month through our Adopt-A-Survivor Program?  Please ask us how, or see our website for all the information at:  www.abundantbread.com.

Although, we continue this year with our weekly food bag program with over 400 families and soup kitchen with freshly made five course meals, we sense the Lord wants to expand and maybe even double the size of our facilities.  This, of course, would be for the sole purpose of reaching more souls for His namesake!  Please pray as to what part He may have you play in this expansion?  Click here, if you are led to give now.

We proclaim this promise from His word over you and your family: Psalm 65:11, "You crown the year with your bounty and your carts overflow with abundance."  Amen!

Recently, we received over $12,000 worth of mostly new shoes, boots and footwear. Days later, we received a phone call from the leadership of the local orthodox orphanage we often help with a plea, almost begging for us to help the over 80 orphaned girls.  She told me that the orphan girls are "Raising their emergency desperate voices for their great need for shoes and rain boots."  So, we are dedicating the first fruits of these shoes to go towards this orphanage institution, however, we will also need your help for the certain styles and sizes that we don't have. Please remember these orphans in your prayers.  Click here: To give towards orphan shoes.

I am happy to announce that, by the time you receive and read this newsletter, I will be days away from my 50th Jubilee Year Birthday Celebration.  My dear friends, this only happens once in a lifetime and I am forever grateful that the Lord has carried me and used me in all the ways He has, "for such a time as this!"  Please pray for continued strength, health, blessing and vision to carry the torch into the next 50 years of service unto Israel, our Jewish People, and shining the light of the Greatest Ancient of Days who ever lived!
Also, as you read this, I will be in the U.S.A. on a ministry trip to North Carolina and California, speaking and sharing the Good News of what the Lord Yeshua is doing through the work of Abundant Bread of Salvation to several congregations as well as conferences.  Please pray that the Ruach Ha Kodesh (The Holy Spirit), speak through me to all those who have ears to hear and that a mighty wave of support will arise from those who proclaim His Name and stand with Israel!  Am Israel Chai!  The People of Israel live!
Thank you again for all your prayers, support and volunteerism during this exciting year of bounty ahead of us.

December, 2018 - Special End of the Year Report


December, 2018 - Special End of the Year Report

Precious friend of Abundant Bread of Salvation, 

As we end this year
we are very excited to share with you practical blessings and salvations of our Jewish People. My friends, this does not come easy in Israel and for us it is a clear sign of the hand of the Lord upon what He has called us to do. Halleluyah! As we end this year, it makes ALL the challenges worthwhile!
For this we praise Adonai and we thank YOU for all your prayers and support! Plus, the dozens who volunteered with us.

Matthew 25:40 states, "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these Jewish brothers and sisters of mine you did for Me." This should be a question we ask ourselves daily. What better time than now at the end of the year to give your most generous tax-deductable donation towards this expanding work and propel us forward into 2019, abundantly for His Kingdom? 
                          

Please rejoice with our team, by reading the below examples that explain just the tip of the iceberg of 
what was physically and spiritually done this past year through your generous support, prayers and the love of God. Halleluyah! Glory to God! 

2018 Highlights: 
*Because of His abundance, thousands of our Jewish people were tangibly blessed, prayed for at their own request and many 
giving their hearts and lives to their Lord, King and Messiah for eternity! 

*Because of His abundance, we gave away over 6000 packed bags of food, (roughly 70 tons), at our headquarters distribution center in Netanya. Each bag was filled with over 25 products, serving at least over 400 families monthly.  Praise Adonai!

*Because of His abundance, we had hundreds of volunteers serve alongside us at our soup kitchen where each needy person received a home-cooked, sit-down five-course meal! At least 3800 hot meals served as well as take home fresh bread and many times take-home meals to help them through the week. We also gave away over 30 tons of new and used clothes and blankets as well as much needed furniture.

*Because of His abundance, on roughly a dozen occasions, we visited two local orphanages doing prayer walks with believers as well as provided finances in-hand, sets of new blankets, shoes, school supplies, toys as well as clothes on many occasions to over 100 very needy orphans. On several occasions, the leaders of this Orthodox facility came to our headquarters to give us letters, cards and pictures made by the kids thanking us for our love, care and generosity.

*Because of His abundance, we had at least a dozen gatherings of believers to do Royalty Meals with Holocaust survivors, giving them an elegant meal in a restaurant or banquet hall, along with concerts, dancing and sharing the life changing message of hope. Lives changed forever! 

*Because of His abundance we took at least half a dozen organised bus trips to Biblical sites such as the Sea of Galilee, Jerusalem, Mt. of Olives, Jaffa and The Holocaust Museum-Yad v'Shem with poor and needy immigrants, war veterans, Holocaust survivors and refugees. A majority of these people had never seen these sites. They also experienced three amazing live worship concerts in Jerusalem. These are world renowned gifted artists, that love Yeshua. One concert with Joshua Aaron, one concert with Paul Wilbur and another with Marty Goetz. Hallelu Et Adonai! Praise the Lord!


*Because of His abundance, I had successful ministry trips to the USA, introducing our Adopt-A-Holocaust Survivor Program, having almost 50 Survivors financially adopted by believers as well as seeing the leader of the Holocaust Survivor organization grow in his new relationship with his Messiah. Halleluyah! This same leader, pleads with me to ask you, to please help financially adopt another 50 Survivors that have signed up. Every soul is precious! The set time is now before it is to late and they are all gone.

Abundant Bread of Salvation is on the rise as we increase our efforts and continue to find favor working with our local city officials, social workers, and many organizations to bring practical and spiritual restoration to these "dry bones" and the nation of Israel!  Zechariah 4:6 - "Not by might, nor by power, but by His spirit!" 
Thank you again for your sacrificial giving and prayers as we soar like eagles into 2019!
Happy New Year, in His eternal hope.

Newsletter November/December 2018


November/December 2018

Shalom to you in His Precious Name, which is The Light of the World,

We would like to start this prayer letter by giving thanks to God for all His blessings, given by you, this year as we quickly see the end of 2018. Recently, most of the world celebrated Thanksgiving. I was able to celebrate in the Capitol City of Jerusalem. Halleluyah!
In Israel and all around the world, the Jewish people are celebrating Hanukkah, known as the Feast of Dedication as celebrated by Yeshua-Jesus Himself and mentioned in John 10:22. What a wonderful season we all have to raise up the Name and Hope of The Light of The World! May He always fan His flame into the dark world through you, that we are living in! He calls us to be salt and light!

As mentioned in last month's prayer letter, I will elaborate more details regarding the amazing event we did taking 35 Holocaust Survivors to a live recording of Joshua Aaron's worship concert at the Tower of David in the eternal city of the Great King, Jerusalem.
First of all, please enjoy the new ministry video clip of this very event, as pictures are worth a thousand words. I know you will be blessed by the short video clip below, seeing Survivors worshiping for the first time in Jerusalem, together with other local Jewish Believers and Believers from all over the globe.


Before the concert started, Joshua Aaron personally came over and welcomed the Holocaust Survivors and blessed them. This was very special to them and spoke volumes for Yeshua, literally showing a physical testimony of the extra care for "These Dry Bones" that have been miraculously saved from the Holocaust and brought back to Israel on Eagles Wings.
As seen in the video clip above, Joshua acknowledged them from the main stage and there were many occasions where these Survivors were up and dancing and many times raising their hands to the God of Israel. Praise Adonai! You may also view this video clip on our website at: www.abundantbread.com

Since then, we had our weekly activities of Soup Kitchen and monthly distribution of over 400 food bags distributed with all the new food products we received! We could not do this without your sacrificial financial support and prayers. Thank you!

Speaking of support, I would like to feature the wonderful possibility of YOU, volunteering with Abundant Bread of Salvation. Recently, we were able to see what could only be the hand of God select three very unique volunteers.
One gentleman from Canada, who is an ex-punk rocker musician, now on fire for Yeshua with an amazing passion for Israel and our Jewish people. He blessed our poor and needy people with worship music and a servant's heart to do whatever tasks needing to be done.
EX-PUNK ROCKER, NOW PLAYING FOR THE JEWISH MESSIAH AT THE
 SOUP KITCHEN IN NETANYA 
Two other volunteer women, one from Switzerland that wanted to be the perfect example of Yeshua, to bless our Jewish people and deeply loved our Holocaust survivors and widows.
The other of the two women was from Germany, sending ahead of time in the regular mail, and bringing a wheel chair, a walker and other home devices for a recent post hip surgery widow and single mother for whom she has taken a special interest and that we have served for years, as well as German Holocaust Survivors. Much glory to the Lord and joy has come from volunteers pouring out living waters unto our needy people here in Netanya.
V o l u n t e e r s  h a v e  g r e a t  f u n  w h i l e  s e r v i n g .
We love and appreciate all of our global volunteers, especially our dedicated local team of Believer volunteers. Again, we could not do this work with out all these hands and feet of the Lord. Please email below for volunteer inquiries.

Helping  Ethiopian  Jewish  Believers
Galatians 6:10 says: Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who are belonging to the family of believers. I'd like to end this letter on this note. Each month, we practically give to the our local Ethiopian Jewish Congregation, 25 bags filled to over flowing with 25 food products and sometimes, even with special Ethiopian cultured items that we have ordered.  Praise Adonai Forever!
Loading up their van with monthly food products from Abundant Bread of Salvation!
Because of your financial help and prayers, we are making an impact daily, weekly, monthly and for ETERNITY!  Praise Adonai!
