Precious Supporters of Abundant Bread of Salvation,
We are living in times of emergency,
war and uncertainty around the world, but especially in Israel. As I write this prayer letter
update, there are rockets flying into Israel from the terrorist
group, Hamas, from the Gaza Strip as well as yesterday, Hezbollah, on
our Northern boarder with Lebanon. This week, there have been
over 4000 rockets shot indiscriminately on most of the cities of
Israel from all sides. This also escalated civil unrest in
many cities with the over two million Israeli Arabs that normally
dwell in peace, side-by-side with our Jewish people. Sadly, we
have lost a dozen civilians and soldiers because of this evil
hatred. We predict that you normally pray for Israel, so
we want to ask that you step up these prayers a few notches.
We know Yeshua is in complete control and that
His word is being fulfilled right before our eyes. We want to
proclaim the promise of the scripture from Isaiah 2:4, “He will
judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many
people. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their
spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against
nation, nor will they train for war anymore.” Can I get a
big AMEN?! In last month’s prayer letter, we had acknowledged
and observed Israel’s Memorial Day, asking you to remember and pray
for our living soldiers as they do their best to protect our precious
biblical heartland. Little did we know what would be happening as you
receive this update. Abundant
Bread of Salvation has stepped up to the plate to help the citizens
of the south to both come and stay at our distribution center for
refuge as well as provide food to as many as possible.Please, will you help with this
emergency need of food and shelter, “For Such a Time as This?” We
may even bring a carload of food products to the believers and the
congregation for them to give away to those in great need, if we are
able. They need you and we need you like never before! CLICK
HERE, with your emergency help.
This month, we
are also celebrating the biblical holiday of Shavuot, also known as
Pentecost, the Giving of the Torah, and The Harvest, as well as the
giving of the Ruach Ha Kodesh (The Holy Spirit.) So, there is
much significance and meaning. We cry out, Abba, please send
Your Holy Spirit to fall upon your people and include the Arabs to be
filled with power when the Spirit falls on them. Amen! What
an amazing Holiday that will be!
We were also able to have what we now call a Biblical
Trip Kitchen. This time we took a bus load of Holocaust
survivors to the Sea of Galilee, set up a special Yeshua boat trip
with a wonderful Russian/Hebrew worship leader and let the love of
God speak to everyone. We explained to them all the miracles
that happened on this very sea, as well as the surrounding
area. They were all practically in tears and so
appreciated this fresh air and beautiful sea. For most, it was
their first time out of the city in over fourteen months and for
some, their first time on a boat on the Sea of
Galilee. Halleluyah! We then treated them to a royal
picnic lunch on the shores of the sea that my wife, Yamit,
prepared. They were filled with amazing words of joy and
eternally refreshed. See Pictures below!
This month we also commemorated Jerusalem Day,
celebrating 54 years of the reunification of Jerusalem and over
5000 years as the ancient Capital of Israel. Psalm 122:6, “Pray
for the Peace of Jerusalem. May those who love you be secure.”
Very appropriate scripture for these un-secure days.
In closing, we wanted to wish all
of you mothers out there a
very Happy belated Mother’s Day.
I sure love and appreciate
my sweet Jewish mother.
and Hopeful hearts in Yeshua, we thank you for your support.
Opening this newsletter to tell you how much we
appreciate you, as friends, supporters and intercessors of Abundant
Bread of Salvation. Yeshua is the best example of a dedicated
friend. We cannot do this work without His blessing and your
1 Kings 8:61 says, “Let your heart therefore be
wholly devoted to the Lord our God, to walk in His statutes and to
keep His commandments.”
We are happy to report that after this
long year of coronavirus challenges and restrictions, we once again
have come back to taking our Holocaust survivors on beautiful
Biblical trips. This special day on the eve of Yom Ha Shoah -
(Holocaust Memorial Day), we brought a bus load of these precious
Survivors to one of Israel’s most beautiful national parks called
Adamit. This amazing site is two hours North of Netanya close to
the Lebanese border with a fantastic view.
We prepared for them a royal picnic
with all the tasty foods they enjoy and took them on a short nature
walk to enjoy the fresh air and atmosphere after over a year of not
being out of their city and barely out of their apartments.
The Survivors were filled with smiles smiles smiles and
their obvious appreciation for renewing this favored new chapter.
They also heard the Good News of our Messiah, we prayed and stood
together and sang Hatikvah (The Hope), Israel’s National
Anthem. Eternal memories were made.
I also was able to be part of a very special ceremony
and help with a precious Holocaust survivor couple that spoke to a
group of thirty IDF Israeli Soldiers. These soldiers are the
next generation and so important for them to hear these stories of
the Holocaust and ask questions, which they did.
This month (April 14th), in honor of Israel’s Memorial Day, we stand in honor and pain to
remember the almost 24,000 Israeli lives taken because of wars and
terror attacks since 1860. We take this time and would
request of you as well to reflect in a moment of silence for the
lives lost and to remember and pray for our living soldiers as they
do their utmost to protect our precious Biblical heartland.
Psalm 91:11, “For He will give His angels charge
concerning you, to guard you in all your ways.”
Yom Ha’atzmaut - (April 15thIsraeli
Independence Day)73 years ago, God fulfilled one of the most amazing
scriptures. So much so that, I would not be writing this
prayer letter or have this ministry in Israel of practically
helping our Jewish people. Also, to be able to proclaim
His goodness of all the people that have come to faith in the Messiah
Yeshua because of the very work He has done and is still doing in
me and through me. Halleluyah!
Here is the prophecy fulfilled from
the scripture Isaiah 66:8, “Who has ever heard of such things? Who has
ever seen things like this? Can a country be born in a day or a
nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in
labor than she gives birth to her children.”
Israel has performed and fulfilled many miracles but
also accomplishments that have changed this world.
If Israel had never existed, then our
Messiah and our eternal salvation would not be secure.
Can I hear a huge “Praise Adonai!”
With the current loosening of Israel’s exaggerated Covid
restrictions, we are happy to be able to continue our soup kitchen
gatherings in a smaller more intimate way. This has allowed
for us to pour more of His living waters in a tangible and eternal
way upon our precious poor and needy recipients and Holocaust
survivors. Click HERE to support our
on-going soup kitchens
In addition, more and more people are asking to sign up
for our food bag program that already serves at least
400 needy people monthly.
Please, we need your help, with the cost of
another one hundred food bags. Each bag costing close to $25
dollars a month. We hope, pray and trust that Yeshua will put
any amount on your heart to fulfill this great need.
Please add your fervent prayers for the increase and
I am so excited and
I just cannot hide it! With
everything that has happened this past month and will happen in this month
ahead, the Spirit of God leaps within me! I love how it is stated in
Malachi 4:2, “But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness
will rise with healing in its wings and you will go forth skipping about
like calves from the stall.”Halleluyah! Please skip
with us at Abundant Bread of Salvation. Rejoice in the Lord!
By the time you
receive this update letter, the Passover Resurrection season will be upon
us. We want to take this time to wish you all a very special Happy
Passover as you celebrate The Resurrected Passover Lamb, Yeshua. He
is our peace and only hope, the Hope of Israel.
Ministry trip to the U.S.A.
My time in America was an incredible blessing filled with many
miracles that I can fill several novels. My return home to Israel was
postponed roughly a month because of airport closures in Israel. The
many ministry meetings I had, mostly in California, were filled with
excitement as I shared about the abundant opportunities we have had over
this last year during Covid-19, even seeing lives transformed for
eternity from Holocaust survivors, orphans, widows, single mothers,
Ethiopian and Russian Jewish immigrants, war veterans and native Israelis.
Thank you all who received me with open arms as well as for your prayers
and financial support!
Pictured Below: I also had the great opportunity to visit
with my Jewish mother and father on several occasions, to honor them, feast
with them, and rejoice in their salvation of our Jewish Messiah! My
last highlight was celebrating my birthday with them on the beach front of
the Pacific Ocean.
Ephesians 6:2- “Honor your father and
mother, which is the first commandment with a promise.”
This month we continued our activities like every month,
however, praise Adonai, we received another five-ton food delivery as well
as the high priority item of over 500 packages of toilet paper. Because
of your faithful prayers and financial assistance,our poor and
needy people are smiling with appreciation as their physical and eternal
needs are being met. The local leaders of the Holocaust survivors,
since my return to Israel, have called me on several occasions, excited to
hear about my meetings in the U.S.A. and our continued support to them.
Pictures below of food delivery we received because of your prayers
and financial support. We could not do this with YOU.
One of the special poor and needy groups that we assist are
the Ethiopian Jewish immigrants. Amazingly, during this Corona Virus year, Israel recently has
been able to assist the Jewish Ethiopians who have been stuck in their land
to make Aliyah (immigrate) to Israel. Our non-profit has the
great opportunity to help with food bags and encourage these poor and
needy Ethiopians every month as well as those who are of the household
of faith. (Galatians 6:10.) They came this week to pick
up their goods and were extremely blessed!
As an organization, we do our utmost to steer away from politics,
but there has never been a time more crucial than now to call for major
prayer and intercession for Israel’s fourth election for Prime Minister in
roughly two years. In the natural, things are very bad, and it appears
hopeless, however, our trust is not in the leaders of this world but our
Eternal Creator and Master of the Universe. Daniel 2:21 says, “He
changes times and seasons. He removes kings and sets up kings. He
gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have
understanding.” Here is a most exciting, precious scripture to end
on in Hebrews 13:8; “Yeshua Ha Mashiach (Jesus Christ), is the same
yesterday, today and forever.” The Great Passover Lamb!
Thank you for your selfless and eternal
prayers and support
