Well as most of you already know, I am now back here in Sderot, Israel. What a wonderful blessing it was to have a few weeks to visit my family and friends in California. I am so thankful for the wonderful times of sharing and fellowship with dear friends and the opportunities to make many new friends.
It was such a blessing to be able to share at the different fellowships and home groups. I give thanks for each and every one of you, for your generous hearts and willingness to come along side the people of Sderot. May Ha’Shem richly bless you all. And a special thanks to those who opened their homes to me while I was there. You’re gift of hospitality is warmly appreciated. Toda Raba!
“And now we thank you, our God, and praise your glorious name.”
1 Chronicles 29:13
Well since arriving back here in Sderot, the Lord continues to shower us with so many wonderful blessings. A week ago we were so blessed to have a group from Costa Mesa, California come visit us. Our brothers and sisters had gathered together from fellowships all over California and came to bless Israel as well as those serving here. We were able to spend several hours together sharing about Ha’Shem’s work here. The time of fellowship continued as they invited us back to the kibbutz Nir Am to have dinner with them. We are so thankful for the servant’s heart of each one who came. To all those who came to bless us, toda raba!
Currently, details are being planned for an event this May to bless the people of Israel. Several “storefronts” will be hosting a day of gifting of food, personal hygiene, and household items to many of the poorest families here in Israel. Some of those coming to Israel for the Epicenter Conference will also be participating that day as they help us to pass out the “gifts.” Join us in prayer as we seek Ha’Shem’s leading as we plan for this day of blessing. And also that Ha’Shem will prepare the hearts of all those who will be joining us.
Another upcoming event that I am excited about is the “Day of Instruction”, as we are calling it. In the upcoming weeks we will have the opportunity to gather at the main warehouse in Bet Shemesh for a day of instruction with the IDF. The day will include instruction in emergency first aid response and CPR, as well as how to respond to various chemical attacks and non-conventional warfare . This is a very special opportunity to be able to spend the day with IDF instructors as we learn valuable information and skills.
And the blessings just keep on flowing. Recently, we were blessed by a fellowship in Southern California with the Rosetta Stone Hebrew language program. Baruch Ha’Shem !
