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!
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
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!
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.
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.
