This month in the United States of America, they had
elections. In Israel and actually in several other countries, they had
elections as well. Why is this important?Because God raises
up leaders and takes down leaders for His perfect plan and purposes. None
of us will ever one hundred percent agree about who are the best leaders;
however what is most important is that we know and agree
on who is The One, Yeshua (Jesus), who was raised from the dead in order to
bring eternal life to this dark world.
Please let’s take a moment to pray for our leaders and
especially Israel’s leaders, because what happens in Israel will
prophetically affect the rest of the world. Our trust is always in
A scripture that comes to mind to encourage you is John 15:16 “You
did not choose Me but I chose you and appointed you that you would go and
bear fruit and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of
the Father in My name He may give to you.” AMEN!
Here at Abundant Bread of Salvation, we have officially
started our winter soup kitchen which includes a hearty homemade soup
alongside our five star abundant meal. Not only is this a physical
weekly provision, but we also bring forth The Bread of Life and share
about His great and eternal love for our Jewish people.
Praying hands that bring healing to the physical and spiritual
side. Anointed with oil.
At this week’s soup kitchen, it was brought to our attention
that one of the elderly ladies was undergoing active treatment for
cancer and that she would like us to pray for her. Our staff and
volunteers were called to the task and gave her a personal confidential
space where we could lift her up in prayer holding hands and letting the
Ruach Ha Kodesh (The Holy Spirit), do His healing work through us. Not
only was she encouraged, but she received His healing love.
A woman named Genya also recently received Yeshua as her
Messiah in our distribution center acknowledging her faith for Him to heal
her. Just this one instance makes all our efforts worth it, but
I’m happy to say that we have similar occurrences on a weekly basis.
I often think that without the support and prayers of people
like yourself we would not be able to do such a work on this level,
practically and spiritually assisting over 400 people on a monthly
basis. Thank you so much! We are His hands and feet, boots on
the ground because of your faithfulness.
Serious situation for prayer. Please, pray for our precious Jewish
brother in Yeshua named David. He is a friend and faithful servant of our
team for many years that has recently gone through two invasive heart
procedures called, Cardiac Catheterization. He needs prayer for
full healing, peace and encouragement. His desire is to be back
serving with us, but he needs to rest and recover for a couple
months. He must not lift, so we must trust that the Lord will
provide other faithful hands to pack our food bags for hundreds of our poor
and needy people and Holocaust survivors. Come volunteer if
your led by the Lord.
In ending this short report, last month we promoted our popular
Abundant Bread of Salvation 16 month Messianic Jewish Biblical Calendars. We
are extending this fund raising offer this month as well. For a
minimal gift of $50 or more, we will send you this beautiful calendar made
in Israel by Believers in Yeshua (Jesus). How lovely to
have this hanging on your wall to remind you to pray for our kingdom
work promoting hope and salvation. Please mark your gift clearly
in order to receive it with the words, “Messianic Calendar”.
"Behold how good and
pleasant it is to gather together in unity." (Psalm 133:1)
We have just passed through what’s called, The Days of Awe,
otherwise known as The Day of Atonement or Yom Kippur, when millions
of our Jewish people worldwide pack the prayer houses (synagogues),
to repent and ask God (Elohim), to forgive them of their sins.
Thankfully, we as Messianic Jews and Christians worldwide know that our
atonement only comes through the atoning blood of Yeshua
(Jesus.) Halleluyah! "By this we know that our names are
written in The Lambs Book of Life," as mentioned in the book of
A song that I always loved by a Messianic musician named Joel
Chernoff is called "The Sacrifice Lamb.” The lyrics hit it right on the nose
regarding Yom Kippur as Yeshua's death upon the tree took our sin away once
and for all. In the lyrics,
it says “Have you ever heard Messiah has come? It says in His word to
cleanse everyone. Atonement He made iniquity bore. That we can
find life with Him evermore. The Sacrifice Lamb has been slain His
blood on the altar a stain. To wipe away guilt and pain. To bring
hope eternal. Salvation has come to the world, God’s only Son to the
world, Jesus the One for the world, Yeshua is He."How
awesome is that! Amen! CLICK VIDEO to your left to listen to this beautiful
Within days after Yom Kippur, we celebrate The Feast of
Tabernacles, known as Sukkot in Hebrew. Yeshua, Himself,
celebrated this biblical feast as mentioned in John 7:2. I love
how the emphasis of Sukkot is to dwell in a temporary booth (a sukkah)
for seven nights, invite guests, foreigners and have festive meals
proclaiming the words in Hebrew, Zman Simchatanu (the times of
rejoicing). He is Emmanuel; God who always dwells with
us. Now that is comforting!
This year, I had the opportunity to help build a sukkah with a
church called Calvary Chapel in Ojai, California, and then, several days
later, a group of six from this very church flew to Israel and helped to
build our sukkah in the yard of our home! It was a beautiful

This month, for three weeks I traveled to Los Angeles (The
City of Angels), which is where I was born. There, I was invited
to speak about the work of Abundant Bread of Salvation in many locations as
well and have precious visits with my elderly and sick, earthly parents.Please continue to pray for my father and mother, Frank and Gail. Thankfully,
they have come to faith in Yeshua like me and we will all be in eternity
together. An additional special occasion was to celebrate my
Abba father, Frank's, 86th birthday together. Precious time
with eternal memories!

precious times preaching about Abundant Bread and eternal times visiting
with my mother and father.

Back in Israel, my
amazing team has been keeping all the activities going with the food bag
program serving over four hundred people monthly, as well as a Royalty
Meal with Holocaust survivors together with our group of friends from
Calvary Chapel, Ojai.They also did a worship concert for the
survivors. We cannot do these works without our faithful team as
well as volunteer groups that come to pour out their hearts to our Jewish
people for this mighty kingdom work for Yeshua. Remember,
when you give to or pray for us, you must realize that this is for His
glory, and it is an eternal investment that will not be wasted.

It's coming from Israel.
We end with this by saying how much we appreciate your prayers
and support. In these unstable times that we are living in, we
proclaim peace, love, joy, health and prosperity over you and your
families, in Yeshua’s name! Amen!
We want to start off
by saying that in ALL our ways we acknowledge Him, and He does
direct our paths (Proverbs 3:6). There are many paths and many roads
to choose each day, however, on this day we ask you to choose life so
that you and your household may live as quoted from Deuteronomy 30:19. May
these words be for you as sweet as the honeycomb!
Speaking of sweetness,
in Israel and all over the world our Jewish people are celebrating Rosh
HaShanah, otherwise known as The Feast of Trumpets. It is also the
head of the Jewish New Year and traditional to eat apples dipped in honey,
and that is very tasty indeed! We remember that we were once slaves living
in bitterness, but now, thanks to God, we are living in the sweetness of
our deliverance from Egypt as well as from our sinful lives that Yeshua
took upon himself so that we can have eternal life. Please take a
moment now and say a prayer for the salvation of our Jewish people. As
Abundant Bread of Salvation does its sacrificial work, our people will know
how much they are loved by our Father in Heaven. It says, in Joel 2:1,
“Blow the Trumpet in Zion, sound the alarm on my holy mountain! Let
all the inhabitants of the land tremble for the day of the Lord is coming,
it is near.” Halleluyah! Don’t we feel this now more than ever
before? There is an incredible urgency in the air here in Israel and
we must continue serving Him and making Him known to our Jewish people
wherever they are. Arise O’Lord and may our enemies be
scattered! We wish you all a sweet and happy Jewish New Year
and may your names be inscribed in the Lamb's Book of Life.
We are extremely
excited that the work and Food Bag Distribution program continues weekly
for the over 400 poor and needy people we are serving every month. We
thank you so much for your prayers and provision for this as our Jewish
people are needing these essentials like never before. Inflation of prices
has risen in every sector. PLEASE, will you help with the cost of this
essential food provision that costs roughly $10,000 U.S. dollars each
month. Please click here to give what your able and what the Spirit
of God tells you to do.
One of our many
activities that blesses our Holocaust survivors, single mothers, and widows
is what we call Korean Haircuts. A few months ago, our precious
believers in Yeshua (Korean friends in Jerusalem) returned to us,
coming every month to not only make our people look and feel beautiful with
a free haircut, but also to offer prayer. Several times they have come with
a pastor who makes fresh ground coffee as well as handmade Korean Delight
Doe Treats in the shape of a fish and filled with cooked lentils. They
leave our facility absolutely blessed, filled, looking beautiful, and, most
importantly, loved on and prayed for in Yeshua’s name. We love
these faithful Korean servants who selflessly pour themselves out to our
poor and needy Israeli people. Please keep them all in your prayers.
answer to prayer has been a flood of requests from believer groups and
individual volunteers from the nations wanting to come and volunteer with
Abundant Bread in Israel. So, even this month, as I write, we have
over three groups coming from the USA, Germany, and Romania to do special
events, soup kitchens, and Royalty meals to bless our people above and
beyond their basic needs, in Yeshua’s name. Praise Adonai!
Check out these below pictures of our most recent Royalty Meal with our precious German
brethren in Yeshua.
They were an amazing blessing to our Holocaust survivors.
Pictures above are from a Royalty Meal with
Holocaust survivors and German Believers that was held in a highly desired
Chinese restaurant in the center of Netanya.
As we close this
praise and prayer report, we are excited to announce that this month, we
also conducted our annual Abundant Bread of Salvation Board Members
(there are seven of us) meeting to hear the verbal report as well as
the financial reports from our attorney and our accountant. I will say
this in all humility; not only were the board members blessed to receive
the amazing review, but they were also so excited about the accountability
and use of the funds raised to help our people in the most practical and
creative ways and how we share the Gospel, bringing glory and honor to our
King and Messiah Yeshua! We have such an amazing Board of Directors
and cannot do this without them as well as your prayers and support.
Glory to God in the highest!
