Let’s Celebrate Together the Goodness of the Lord,
We open this praise and prayer letter with excitement because we have abundant gratefulness. I’m reminded of the scripture in Psalm 149:3 which says, “Let them praise His name with dancing and make music to Him with the Tambourine and Harp.” One of the many exciting things to celebrate that happened on August 9th was our wedding anniversary. Healthy relationships require hard work, and it is such a huge example of our relationship with Yeshua (Jesus). We need to know our Messiah personally and intimately as well as our spouses. Easier said than done with all the distractions, principalities, and powers of this world. However, Greater is He in us than he that is in this world.
Wedding Anniversaries are a reminder that we are one more year closer to the Wedding Supper of the Lamb, Yeshua. AMEN!
I gain much hope and encouragement from the prophetic kingdom scripture in Revelation 19:7-9. Please get excited with me, as it says, “Let us rejoice and exalt and give Him the glory for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His Bride has made herself ready. It was granted her to clothe herself with fine linen, bright and pure, for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints. Write this; blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb. These are the true words of God.” We hope this is an encouragement to all you who are faithful in our Lord!
ABOVE:Our Future Vision, Our Future Ministry Home
Abundant Bread of Salvation’s seven-member Board, our two part-time staff and local volunteers, for several years have had the vision to expand our ministry facilities, so we will be able to reach more of our people, both practically and spiritually, even double the amount. We have prayed and searched, when we had the time, for new ministry facilities (ideally a one level private home with large yard). We know His timing is perfect! As we continue this sincere search, would you please (if you are giving monthly) consider doubling your monthly donation or pray about an extra one-time donation towards this vision?We have hundreds of poor and needy people that are waiting for us to expand for them to receive the blessings we are freely giving to the already over four hundred people monthly. Please, we kindly ask you to step up with us for the Lord and His kingdom purposes. We sense the time is short and we desire to see many more of our people come to the knowledge of Messiah Yeshua.
ABOVE Pictures: The Seasons of Life to Celebrate Momma Gail
We all know that without our mothers, we would not be here. So, on that note I want to acknowledge my Jewish mother, Gail, who recently had her eighty-third birthday. Happy Birthday momma! She lives alone in a tiny rental apartment in Hollywood, California, and has several serious health challenges. Please, can I ask you all to put her on your prayer lists? She is precious and I love her so much. I wouldn’t be doing this Kingdom work if it wasn’t for her giving birth to me. Halleluyah! Thankfully she knows her Jewish Messiah Yeshua.
Pictured Above:Our Faithful Employee for seven years, Valery
Emergency Prayer request for healing: one of our main part time employees, Valery, working with us for seven years, recently had a stroke and I had to take him to the hospital where he stayed for seven nights. Thankfully, he is now at his home continuing his rehabilitation. Please, will you lift him up in prayer for a full restoration, recovery and return to normal life, and of course our hope is that he will be able to return to his vital role in helping the practical work of Abundant Bread of Salvation. We believe in the power of prayer! Please click HERE, to give towards any unexpected expenses for Valery and his recovery
Food Bag Program Update: This month, we were extremely overwhelmed when on our food bag distribution day, which happens every Monday, we had an extra amount of poor and needy people show up on our doorstep to receive their food parcels. At least 140 people, almost double for that day, which took over six hours to process. There was much spiritual warfare, pushing and shoving and people lacking patience. It also was boiling hot outside. Thankfully, after prayer, giving many cups of water in Yeshua’s name and confronting in love those lacking patience, the peace of the Lord Yeshua ruled and reigned, and all these people were blessed and received their packs of food together with the love of God.
