Handicapped War Veterans, widows and actually most Israeli citizenshave
been told to stay at home as a matter of life and death.
of Salvation is now the ONLY way for the over 400 poor and needy
home-bound to receive a home cooked meal and food bag parcel. A huge
sector of Israeli society cannot go to work or were laid off, which makes
their financial challenges even more urgent.
The times we are
living in are unstable, uncertain and many people are left with no
hope in sight. We want to be that living hope and practical support
in their time of need.
realize that our work is more critical now than we could have ever
because of the Coronavirus, we were able to do an Emergency Food
Bag Distribution and give extra toilet paper to over 70 people.
Our team worked in unity, wore gloves and face masks. The way in which we
handed out the food packages was different; however, we were still able
to help them keep their distances between each other, give
blessings, prayers and personal support to each one at the door as well
as hygienic hand cleansing to all who desired.
We are pleading
with you to help as you are able with this national
emergency in Israel. We will need to make
our next food order soon to restock the shelves, and this time we will
use the floor space as well. The need is for $20,000 dollars to
fulfill this dire need to continue blessing our people abundantly in
Yeshua's name. Please, we implore you to give
above and beyond your normal giving. Write a note stating, "Emergency
The work we do
is both practically important as well as eternal. We are
extremely excited to report that recently, another elderly woman
has come to faith in the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus). Her whole
countenance changed right before our eyes. How awesome is this, to see
the hand of God at work in our little efforts to see the lives of our
Jewish People changed forever.
soup kitchen has been filled with extra life-changing messages!
Besides the amazing five course meals, we have had a wonderful volunteer
from the nations doing live Bible storytelling, that fully involves and
engages our people in their ancient Hebraic stories. I, myself was one
of the main Biblical actors on two different occasions playing Isaac, the
son of Abraham. I literally acted out the sacrifice on the altar, as
our volunteer explained with translation into Russian, how our Messiah
Yeshua was also sacrificed.
I also played
the part of Joseph and how he was rejected by his family and how Yeshua
was also rejected by his own Jewish people.
Simply life changing, engaging and everyone was filled with joy as they
were also asked follow-up questions about the stories. Our volunteer also
had many open doors to take these same stories to several local elderly

This cold and
rainy winter has brought us into an amazing Spring season with an overflowing
Sea of Galilee as well as seeing the desert bloom with flowers as
never before, as prophesied in Isaiah 35. We were amazed to see all
this with our own eyes!
How wonderful to be able
to write to you about the continuous good news every month as we see the hand of the Lord, Yeshua, at
work. Many would consider this month of February the month of
love because of Valentine's Day. We consider every day, a day of love
because of His love towards us and our Jewish People. He loved and
still loves us first! It
says in John 15:13, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man
lay down his life for his friends." He paid the price
for me, personally. This
month I celebrated my birthday. Little did I know that, as a young Jewish teenager, He would
deliver me from my sin and I would come to know my Jewish Messiah Yeshua
(Jesus) and have eternal life and live in Israel to reach my own people.
Halleluyah! Glory to God! I thank God daily for the life He has given me to
pour into the lives of our Jewish people in His eternal Jewish nation, for
His name's sake!
We also celebrated
another Jewish holiday called TuB'Shvat
- the "New Year for the Trees" planted into the soil of Israel.
Every year, people plant trees or pay for others to plant them. We were so blessed to be able to
plant together with a bus-load of Holocaust survivors, widows and single
mothers in the center of the biblical heartland.We at Abundant Bread of
Salvation love sowing and reaping! 1 Corinthians 9:11, "If
we sowed spiritual things in you, is it too much if we reap material things
from you?" May
this be your heart and call to sow financially into this urgent Kingdom
daily, we are working around the clock to invest in the lives
of the elderly and Holocaust survivors as well as the orphans and widows. Speaking
of orphans, this month we visited the orphanage, gave them new clothes, new
shoes and a small financial gift. They were so grateful, however
they told us about one (of many) great needs for finances which is for a field trip for over 80
orphaned girls. They want to take them to the Golan Heights to see the snow
and they have no funds to cover the trip. The cost
would be $5000 U.S. dollars! After praying, and by faith, I decided
Abundant Bread of Salvation will cover half of the cost, but wishing we
could do it all! They were extremely grateful! Please
prayerfully consider how you could help with this and other trips like this
for the poor, needy and lonely orphans and Survivors.
exciting report! Recently, we had the first Royalty
Banquet of 2020 with 100 Holocaust survivors together with a special
group of believers from the beautiful Islands of Hawaii. On top of
that, our dear
friends and Spirit-filled, talented, Messianic musicians, Joshua Aaron and
Aaron Shust agreed to do special music and share their testimonies for this
are such precious brothers that love our people, the Land of Israel and the
eternal work we do! We were able to bless the survivors with
such an elegant meal, get them up and dancing to the God of Israel and they even learned a native
Hawaiian hula dance! They loved the celebration and laughed so much!
Dear friends, this event brought a great testimony for our Messiah
Yeshua from the nations as well as our local Israeli ABOS team, and it
gave them an extraordinary and supernatural quality of life. Please pray
that we would be able to have many more of these special events. Will
you please stand with us in prayer and financial support before it is too
late? Our time here on earth is precious
