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!
