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.
