Newsletter July 2020


July 2020
Shalom, Dear Watcher on the Walls,
The heat is on as we are now deep into the summer months. The kids are out of school here in Israel as the pandemic is still in our face, however the biblical work of Abundant Bread of Salvation continues to increase in the power and glory of Messiah Yeshua! Nahum 1:7 says, "The Lord is good, a REFUGE in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him." This is a summer that the whole world has never experienced. Be at rest, be at peace, because our hope is in Him wherever we dwell.
As our world deals with the effects of this pandemic, many more families in Israel are falling under the poverty line. The jobs that normally provide employment for hundreds of thousands of low-wage workers remain shut down or severely restricted. We at Abundant Bread of Salvation are proud to also reach out to those who are in such extreme poverty so much so, that they have become homeless and fallen into drug and alcoholic addiction. 
We are happy to say there is a local Bible-based drug and alcohol rehabilitation center here in our city of Netanya. It is minutes from our outreach center. We help them on a monthly basis with food bags (roughly $400 U.S dollars worth of food every two months) and prayer, and we work together to bless these dear forgotten, homeless brothers to show them that they do have the power to overcome with the strength of the Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh), as they grow in Yeshua (Jesus). Many times, I am able to share my own testimony of how Yeshua delivered me from a life of addiction and give them sound counseling from my experience. Praise Adonai for His testimony in me and through me. My Friends, He is our only Hope of Glory!

The men above are finding victory and freedom from addiction through the power of the Ruach Ha Kodesh in Messiah Yeshua (Jesus).  One day at a time.  Halleluyah!

The poverty in Israel was dire prior to this pandemic crisis and it has only gotten worse. With the announced cuts to welfare programs and the continuing economic crisis, it's become clear that Abundant Bread of Salvation and other nonprofits will have to fill the vacuum where government welfare cannot. This has also created a huge mental health crisis. Thank God I was trained to be a psychiatric mental health nurse many years ago. Weekly, we also go out to personally visit Holocaust survivors, widows and single mothers in their homes or outside in the open air to offer prayer, support, and encouragement. Many times, they simply hold our hands with tears in their eyes and say, "What would we do without you?" or "You are family to us." 
Praise Adonai Yeshua that we are His hands and feet bringing the Good News, practical help and comfort to Zion!
You are family to us with your prayer and financial support, so we may be family to them. Thank you for helping us be His hands and feet with prayer and support.

Since April, over 1.12 million people - 27.5% of the Israeli workforce - have submitted applications for unemployment. Extending unemployment eligibility until the end of August for all job seekers would cost the State of Israel a total of 3.3 billion shekels ($960 million in US dollars)! Many families have not been able to receive the above benefits because of tighter restrictions under the COVID-19 resources being stretched to the limit. As we write this newsletter, Israel is heading into a second, full closure because of the coronavirus.

Our Jewish people need your help like never before. Abundant Bread of Salvation is the perfect fit to do just that as we focus both on the practical and the spiritual help, all at the same time. The City of Netanya where we are based allows us to function to give practical help, even during these most challenging times. Hallelujah! In Proverbs 3:27 it says, "Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in the power of your hand to do so." Please take a few moments now and ask the Lord what part you may take in the salvation and solution to our poor and needy and Holocaust survivors poverty and loneliness.
Many Blessings and the covering of our Messiah Yeshua over you and your household!

Shalom Precious Creation of the Lamb of God, Yeshua (Jesus),

We want to start this letter with a prayer for you, through His Word. Second Corinthians 1:3-5 says, "Praise be to God, Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, compassionate Father, God of all encouragement and comfort who encourages us in all our trials so that we can encourage others in whatever trials they may be undergoing with the encouragement we ourselves have received from God. For just as the Messiah's sufferings overflow into us, so through the Messiah our encouragement also overflows."

We at Abundant Bread of Salvation desire this overflow in you and through you. You are His workmanship created for good works in Messiah Yeshua (Jesus).

"Peaceful Protest in America"
Since writing last month, the world has changed even more with the civil unrest, protests, looting and violence connected to the murder of George Floyd. May he rest in peace. This national tragedy sadly has also caused a terrible increase in antisemitism against our Jewish people, their stores, their synagogues and communities that the media has chosen to give very little coverage.


May we take this opportunity, to encourage all people of Jewish ancestry to pray and consider greatly making Aliyah to your Jewish Homeland. This land is the safest and your covenant land, to dwell in richly. If you're not of Jewish ancestry, please pray for our Jewish people to fulfill God's prophetic word (Isaiah 43:5-6), in returning to the Jewish homeland, Israel.  Baruch Ha Ba-Blessed is He who comes!

We continue to serve over 400 poor and needy and Holocaust survivors every week with their food bags as they now have come back to our outreach center with their masks on, keeping social distancing and filling their carts with food and the blessings of Messiah Yeshua. Thank you for your continued support for this essential need and life preserving necessity.  CLICK HERE, to support and pray for our work and outreach in Yeshua's name!
All our people are required to wear their masks and keep social distancing.  
We miss their hugs and smiles.

We are also happy to announce that today as I write, we are having our first simple return soup kitchen with all the leaders of our local Holocaust survivor organization in the garden of our ministry home.   They will receive first class treatment with a five-star salmon meal.



The above and below pictures are Precious Survivors entering the ministry house garden, eating an elegant soup kitchen meal and enjoying afterglow fellowship together after three months of lock down quarantine. They were so excited to finally see each other that many of them had tears in their eyes when they shared their appreciation of what we did for them.


In addition, our dear local friend and supporter, Messianic musician Carolyn Hyde is coming from The Galilee to bless our people with lively eternal music.  Of course,  getting our dear ones out of their chairs to dance in freedom as most of them have literally not been out of their homes in three long months. Praise Adonai for the continuation of our life-giving soup kitchens!  CLICK HERE, to support the Soup Kitchen Gatherings in the Garden.



Another one of our regular outreaches that we are honored and proud of is, our practical help of the Ethiopian Jewish Community. A majority of these precious souls that have come so far from their distant land to Israel to try and make a better life, still struggle to put food on their table and many times choose between food and medications.

By God's grace and because of your prayers and your essential financial support, we are able to assist both the Messianic Jewish Ethiopian Community and the Ethiopians whom have not yet come to recognize their Jewish Messiah.  Click here to support the Ethiopians


No matter what the color of skin, we at Abundant Bread of Salvation like Yeshua (Jesus), see no color.

There is so much more I can report however in ending this letter, 1 John 4:19-20, says it all:

"We ourselves love now because He loved us first. If anyone says, I love God and hates his brother, he is a liar. For if a person does not love his brother whom he has seen, then he cannot love God whom he has not seen."

Yeshua, paid the price once and for ALL!

We are eternally thankful for your love, prayers and support.

Shalom Precious Friend of Abundant Bread of Salvation,

How awesome that we are able to send you these monthly reports from Israel! These last couple of months on lock down, we have been able to continue our fellowship with the saints on zoom video, which is based in Jerusalem. It was amazing to see believers come together in unity to study God's Word and experience times of worship. Believers have joined us from the nations, which included the U.S.A., Kenya, England/UK, Germany, Portugal and Uganda.

It says in Psalm 133:1
"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!" The times we are living in are more of Biblical proportions than ever before, thus the need to be in unity. We do look forward to getting back to fellowship face-to-face. We take this time to thank you, our dear and precious supporters and intercessors for being faithful.
  

As I write this prayer letter update, I am recalling my plan several months ago to be in England now on a speaking and fundraising trip for Abundant Bread of Salvation. God obviously had other plans for me to be here in Israel during the pandemic to reach our people with the most practical food to their doors and comfort their souls with Good News of our Messiah while they are in lock down. 


I was able to do a wonderful interview recently with a Christian Radio station based in Colorado. The subject was "Outreach During The Times of Coronavirus." You may view with clips and pictures and listen to interview, just click on play button below. We are slowly receiving the poor and needy back at the doors of our headquarters for food distribution with the new norm of loosened restrictions, however still with masks and gloves on.

A scripture has been deep in my heart and spirit during these uncertain times of how important our work of reaching over 400 poor and needy and Holocaust survivors while we can! In 1 Thessalonians 5:3 it says, "While people are saying, peace and safety, destruction will come on them suddenly as labor pains on a pregnant woman and there will be no escape."

We are so blessed to know our Redeemer lives and we shall all live with Him in eternity who know Him personally. Let us ALL be ready!

Speaking of being ready, this month we have an amazing biblical holiday upon us to celebrate called Pentecost or in Hebrew, Shavuot. It is also known as "First Fruits" or the "Giving of the Torah" as spoken about in Exodus 34:22 and in Deuteronomy 16:10 as a "Festival of Reaping." Please celebrate with us the fruit of your lips and seek the Lord about what you may be able to give as a first fruits offering unto the Lord with your financial gift towards the work of Abundant Bread of Salvation.  CLICK HERE TO GIVE.  At the same time, keep in mind Yeshua, who being resurrected, represents the First Fruits of those who have died as is prophetically documented in 1 Corinthians 15:20. How glorious is that my friends?! Praise Adonai!

In ending this brief prayer letter and news update, we want to take this time, as it is the month of Mother's Day, to bless all you mothers out there.  We also remember Mary (Miriam), the mother of Yeshua, who was chosen to give birth to The Hope of the World.  Happy Mother's Day, and we look forward to a happy eternity when we will all know, as we are known.
(1 Corinthians 13:1)
           
Thank you so much for your continued prayers and support during these exciting times!
Be encouraged!  He is coming soon!

Joshua Aaron recommends the work of Abundant Bread of Salvation





CLICK ON PLAY BUTTON BELOW and HEAR JOSHUA AARON 
PROCLAIM THE WORK OF                                     
ABUNDANT BREAD OF SALVATION FROM THE 
HISTORICAL TOWER OF DAVID IN JERUSALEM.
GLORY TO GOD!  HALLELUYAH!
BRING US BACK (Joshua Aaron) // LIVE at the TOWER of DAVID, Jerusalem // David's Citadel
Message from Joshua Aaron below, (used with his permission from this past Holocaust Memorial Day newsletter)

Shabbat Shalom Chaverim (friends),

I hope you are all doing well and weathering this storm comfortably with your families. This past Wednesday was 
Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Memorial Day) here in Israel.  This is a sad day for many of our Jewish families who have lost family due to the horrors of the Nazi holocaust.  My great grandparents were also victims of this terrible slaughter of 6 million Jews.  The song above 
"Bring Us Back" I composed (to Psalm 137) in their memory and in the memory of all who have perished. 
It was a blessed time recording this song Live at the Tower of David and having  35  Holocaust Survivors join us that night. Unforgettable!

Due to the quarantine, no one (including the Holocaust Survivors) was allowed to gather together like we usually do, instead people lit candles and placed them on their porches and in their windows.  There was also a siren that rung throughout Israel in a moment of silence in their memory.

I'd love for you to have a chance to bless our Holocaust Survivors who are still alive here in Israel! Below, is a ministry I know personally led by believers who help Holocaust Survivors.

Wishing you
BLESSINGS and SHABBAT SHALOM!





















We appreciate, respect and honor our dear Messianic Jewish Brother,
Joshua Aaron.
We at Abundant Bread of Salvation want to give a special thanks-(todah), to our dear friend and supporter Joshua Aaron and to all of you who follow his great Messianic Music Ministry.  We always look forward to asking him to take part in our outreach projects, Royalty Dinners and field trips with our dear Holocaust Survivors.  They are always so blessed by His love for music and his great Jewish love for Yeshua (Jesus).

#GIVING, TUESDAY WEDNESDAY THURSDAY FRIDAY

On behalf of Abundant Bread of Salvation, we pray this message finds you and your family healthy.  COVID-19 is impacting lives everywhere, causing uncertainty in so many aspects of life.  We know this includes you, and we pray for God's divine provision for you and protection over you. 

We want you to know that Abundant Bread of Salvation is committed to our mission of helping the poor and needy and Holocaust survivors in the most practical means, even door to door, personal phone calls for mutual support and prayer as well as sharing the Good News to the Jew first with the same heart and vision as always.

Things have definitely changed these last couple months.  The crisis has had a severe impact on our resources.  Your support is needed now more than ever to enable our Humanitarian aid and Good News outreaches continue to the most needy in Israel.

Recently, it was announced about #GivingTuesdayNow. This was created in response to the urgent needs facing nonprofit organisations like ours due to the pandemic.  The day itself was May 5th, 2020, however TODAY, we wanted to invite you to please give.  Everyday is a day to give the gift of life as well as eternal life.

As a nonprofit dependent on generous gifts from donors like YOU, we experience firsthand the blessing of each gift. Big or small each one counts.

Thank you in advance for your prayers and support in playing a critical role in sustaining the ministry through this crisis and into the physical and eternal future that we all look forward to.
An additional way of supporting the ministry is by helping us spread the word by sharing this on your social media including this donation link: DONATION LINK
