Shalom Dear Praying Friend and Supporter of Abundant Bread of Salvation,  

This last month, until the writing of this letter, has been nothing but interesting as well as challenging, but extremely fulfilling in the calling of God on our lives and ministry.  We experience an incredible amount of spiritual warfare!  We know this is part of being on the front line, especially IN ISRAEL.  We are living in very unpredictable times in this world and Israel, in particular, being the biblical center of the world. We, however, as a ministry, have no doubt about who holds our future and where our eternal salvation is according to His Living Word.    

Therefore, it is so incredibly important that we know you are praying for us. Please, would you in any way write to us and let us know we have your prayer support?  We have a Prayer Director named Ahavah that you can directly write to and let us know.  She will also be happy to take any of your prayer requests as a ministry of Abundant Bread of Salvation.  Her email is, ahava@abundantbread.com  Please let us know your prayer requests or how we can encourage you?

This month, Israel and Jews worldwide celebrated Sukkot (The Feast of Tabernacles).  Because of the continued virus scare and government regulations, it was not as usual with families and religious communities celebrating together in their tabernacles as typically done for thousands of years by the Jewish people. Even our own self-built sukkah (tabernacle), was only filled with us and the Holy Spirit.  Typically, we would have Holocaust survivors, friends of ABOS, both believers and pre-believers. However, this year we were at least able to call survivors  and other poor and elderly people live from our sukkah on video and encourage them, pray for them, and bring the atmosphere into their homes with the love and spirit of Yeshua (Jesus).  It is exciting to think that Yeshua, as a Jew, also celebrated this biblical festive holiday as spoken of in John 7:14, "It was now during the Feast of Booths, Yeshua went up into the temple and began to teach." Also, in Matthew 21:9: "The crowds going ahead of Him, and those who followed, were shouting, 'Hosanna to the Son of David; Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord, Hosanna in the highest!'"  And we do say a mighty Hosanna because He tabernacles with us always.  Amen!  

URGENT Prayer and Practical Need!  Please, we ask you to read and pray through this last and critical part of this prayer letter.  As we quickly approach the end of 2020, we want to bring to your attention a very dire need as we speak up for and raise awareness for the needs of our precious, elderly Holocaust survivors who are quickly getting older, sicker, and less mobile and, sadly, are dying daily. Some of them are even dying alone in their apartments because of this crazy corona virus, trapping them in fear of going out.  Because of this we are doing our UTMOST, to reach them before it is too late, however we cannot do this alone and are really in need of your help.

Holocaust Survivor Adoption Program 2020

CLICK on above video clip to view our Holocaust Survivor Adoption Program 2020 / 2021

Currently, we have at least 50 living survivors that are in need of adoption by Christians and all believers in Yeshua. This is where you are vital to them having a chance to hear the saving Good News of Yeshua by praying for us as we reach out to them.  Please also pass this news on to other believers or your congregation, friends and family.  Just as vital is your adoption financial support.  We try to raise approximately $200 dollars for each survivor monthly.  For the 50+ survivors, we currently have profiles (we can send to you upon request), for we are trusting God to speak to you about any part you may be able to help with.  $120,000 dollars would provide that monthly support for our 50 survivors for a whole year.  We know our God is faithful! Wouldn't this be the best tax write-off for 2020 that could bring a harvest for the physical and spiritual restoration of "these dry bones"?

PLEASE, click here to specifically give towards our Adopt-A-Survivor Program

Abundant Bread of Salvation has an adoption program that many of you have heard about and some of you have already adopted and are reaping the fruit.  Halleluyah!  My friends, the funds raised for these adoptions are for eternal purposes.

These are many of the actual Holocaust Survivors that we  help and have profiles to send you upon request for adoption.

September 2020

Dear Friends,

What a wonderful month we have ahead of us. A month that is filled both with Biblical Jewish Feasts that speak about our Messiah's return (Rosh Hashanah-The Feast of Trumpets-September 18th) and His eternal forgiveness (Yom Kippur-The Day of Atonement- September 27th). Precious ones, be encouraged and do not lose hope, when this world is falling apart. Galatians 6:9 says, "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."

Speaking of the holidays, The Jewish New Year-Rosh Hashanah is a huge holiday for our people. Here in Israel the pandemic is ongoing with strict restrictions, continued lock downs, panic and fear. We at Abundant Bread of Salvation want to make this a special time of encouragement as well as practical assistance in Yeshua's (Jesus) name. To make this holiday extra special, we will have a special food distribution costing at least $7,000. Please would you take part in this special holiday blessing? Your contributions not only keep us going but are like living water to their souls and planting seeds that bring much fruit in its due season.

Click HERE, to give your greatest Jewish New Year Donation.


Yom Kippur-The Day of Atonement is always a solemn time of the year for God's people to check their hearts, ask God for forgiveness in hopes that their name will be written in the Lamb's Book of Life. Thank God we have the Lamb of God Yeshua, who came and paid that price once and for all!  Halleluyah, now that is something to celebrate in these challenging times! Please pray the Lord God of Israel will open our people's eyes to His great and mighty salvation.

We continue having our special soup kitchen with Holocaust survivors and widows in our garden that we call, "Soup Kitchen in the Garden of Eden.

Last month, we wrote about our special outreach distribution to the orphanage with over eighty new bed sets and over twenty Shabbat suitcases. We must mention the impact this had on these forgotten orphan girls. We continue to receive messages weekly from the house director that tells us of the huge blessings we donated and how it changed their whole self-worth and their love for God. Because of this impact and your help, we decided to make a special video clip for you to hear and see for yourself.

Very exciting news! We are happy to announce that Abundant Bread of Salvation has gone global, but this is an absolute ETERNAL pandemic unlike the one that currently plagues this world. We want to give you an opportunity to be part of this in order to help fight the spiritual, physical and economical pandemic that is destroying millions of people's lives globally. Monthly, we are on a T.V. program called WatchTherefore, which is going into at least 200 countries and 200 million homes sharing the Good News of our Jewish Messiah Yeshua. One of the amazing and redeeming things about this program is that we are able to share about the eternal and practical work of Abundant Bread of Salvation. WatchTherefore studios are located in the most beautiful panoramic setting overlooking the Sea of Galilee. In order for us to do this on a monthly basis we are needing to raise $12,000 U.S. dollars, which will cover programming for the whole year. Would you prayerfully consider sponsoring our programming for one month, three months or even the whole year?  You literally will be investing into this Kingdom work as the nations see and hear of the work of our hands and hear of His salvation and eternal promises towards the physical and spiritual restoration of Israel. How much better can it get than that!

Every bit counts and of course your prayers for breakthrough will make an eternal impact. 

CLICK HERE, to donate to eternal global T.V. programming, which will also raise awareness, funds and prayer intercessors for Abundant Bread of Salvation.

Faithful Friends of Abundant Bread of Salvation,  

Exciting News Below:   

We wanted to start this letter off by sharing a very special Israeli Jewish holiday that happened this month called Tu B'Av.  In biblical times in the days of the temple of Jerusalem, this day marked the beginning of the grape harvest.  It is currently known as the Day of Love, compared to Valentine's Day.  Both as Jewish and non-Jewish believers in Messiah Yeshua (Jesus), we have much to rejoice in, especially on the subject of love with the following scripture:

John 15:13 says, "Greater love has no other man than this, than he that lay down his life for his friends."

Praise Adonai because of His love!  Let's dance, sing and celebrate for the Lamb of God is returning soon!  Until then... we shall continue to shine His love and light to our precious Jewish poor and needy and Holocaust survivors.  Every time we see one of these precious ones come to know their Messiah Yeshua, it is a victorious celebration of love.

 

Speaking of celebrations, we continue our soup kitchen gatherings that we now call, "Soup Kitchen in the Garden." Because of the continued coronavirus pandemic and challenging government restrictions, we have had to change how we do our outreaches. Excitingly, the soup kitchen has been a humongous success bringing the survivors out of their tiny apartments by private taxi that we hire to our open-air, green grass garden, green trees and wild birds, doves, crows and parakeets flying around adding a Garden of Eden atmosphere.  I found the below scripture to be so fitting as we serve them with all our heart, mind, soul and spirit.  Matthew 6:26 says, "Look at the birds of the air, they do not sow or reap or store away in barns and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not much more valuable than they?"  May this encourage you personally and speak to your spirit what you may give financially to bless these forgotten ones we reach. 

Please CLICK HERE, to give your biggest Garden of Eden gift.

We thank God we can do this, although in smaller, more intimate groups.  The expressions and words from the survivors are outstanding, filled with gratefulness and awe.  They take pictures next to our trees as if they are on a vacation in paradise.  Glory to God!  We also have been able to invite local Messianic music artists to play joyful spirit-filled music.  We see the Kingdom effect of what we do is like living water to their souls. 

Soup Kitchen in "The Garden of Eden"

 

Recently, this month we were able to reach deep into the pockets of Abundant Bread of Salvation to do our utmost to fulfill a dire plea from our local girls orphanage.  They asked us if we can help over 20 of their orphan girls to purchase suitcases to be used when they have a chance to go for the weekend to celebrate the Shabbat with host families to give them a feel of home life with family.  Those of you with loving families are so blessed. 

The manager of the orphanage ALSO requested if we can please help them with 90 blanket bed sets for their girls.  We were very happy and honored to do this, however we had to dig "very deep" in faith.

PLEASE, will you help provide your best donation for the orphans sake, to cover the cost of these comfortable bed set blankets for the new school year?

(The cost is roughly $2000 U.S. dollars)  CLICK HERE.

Above Certificate of Appreciation to Abundant Bread of Salvation

Please, will you consider your biggest gift to help with these practical eternal projects that "shout" the love of God through us? Believe me, they will sleep a lot better knowing that someone is thinking and praying for them. The orphanage quickly sent a huge "thank you" with pictures of the girls smiling with their products that we purchased. How awesome that you can help us fulfill the following scripture from Job 29:12, "Because I rescued the poor who cried for help and the fatherless who had none to assist them." All this happens in His perfect timing before the kids go back to school on September 1st.

 

Your heroic support is as critical as ever to our mission. Together, with your prayers, intercessions and acts of faithful giving, we can form a powerful stronghold of aid and healing, making an enormous impact for eternity, especially during this ongoing crisis. Thank you (todah robah) and a million blessings in Yeshua!

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.
