Greetings in the name of our precious Messiah Yeshua!  I am amazed at how the Lord continues to open up new connections and strengthen relationships in His family for the work of the Kingdom. This is one of the key purposes for Restoration From Zion.  We hope you are blessed by the testimonies of the engagements that your prayer and financial contributions support. Here are two brief examples from the past month.

For the past several years, we have developed deeply meaningful relationships with Presbyterian Reformed Ministries International (PRMI).  Led by both Zeb Long and Cindy Strickler, this ministry is founded upon prayer and the working of the Holy Spirit — they have training centers around the world that prepare believers for Holy-Spirit empowered ministry.  Both Zeb and Cindy have attended Tikkun conferences for the past several years, as well as several of our Alignment Roundtables hosted in Israel.

Over the past several months, we have been working on a joint project to reformulate some of the PRMI training materials so that they are presented within a Messianic Jewish context, taking Jewish sensitivities into account.  We are close to completing one of the first modules, which will be jointly branded and made available to the congregations and ministries affiliated with Tikkun. PRMI also invites us to teach and minister regularly at their annual conferences.  They have become true alignment partners and a testimony of how to walk together as One New Man!

The second relationship is with Celebration Church in Jacksonville, FL.  The senior pastor of this church had a personal encounter with Yeshua during Passover in 2018.  This led him toward a process of reevaluating everything, from the way that they taught the Scriptures to the very structure of their services and community engagement. Since Lorena and I moved to Jacksonville from Israel this past summer we have had meetings with the senior pastor and other pastoral staff.  

We have especially bonded with one of the campus pastors and his wife. We both feel that God has joined us together for such a time.  This dear couple has started to lean on us for our perspectives on the Jewish roots of the Scriptures and their application within New Covenant communities, including how to engage the biblical feasts and festivals in a healthy way without seeking to become Jewish or cast themselves as the ideal form of the church.  Lorena and I are so blessed for the growing friendships within this community.  We feel the transformation of the community will have a lasting impact on not only Jacksonville, but many other communities throughout the United States.

Thank you for continuing to pray for these and other similar efforts.

Sincerely,
Benjamin Juster

PATTY: 

As we enter our second month of returning to Israel, we look back and become fruit inspectors.  Last month, we were still in lockdown and have realized how much the Corona Virus has robbed us of being able to minister face to face with people.  Yes, there has been plenty of zoom prayer meetings, counseling and mentoring, but it is not the same.  We have not yet met fully as a congregation in almost a year.  Thankfully, most of the members have remained faithful and have endeavored to meet with each other between lockdowns. 
 
We have yet to see the fruit coming from the seeds that were planted during these months of “confinement.”  It is so difficult to measure fruit when there is no visible measuring rod and your movement is so restricted   All you can do is to keep putting one foot in front of the other in walking out faithful obedience to the Lord.  And, because of this, we are confident that God’s grace and favor is being manifested through the indwelling of his Spirit.  
 
However, we are so grateful that God has more than abundantly provided for us, our family, and our congregants in supernatural ways.  He has been faithful to speak to other members of His body worldwide to generously give to others in need in Israel.  Plus he has kept our family virus free all this time!  Perhaps what this strange season has done more than anything is to bring the reality of the universal body of the Messiah more into focus.  We need you, so thank you for standing together with us!  We will obtain all that has promised if we persevere as one. We hope that someday we will be able to hear your stories of God’s goodness to you this past year.

Covenant Partners
 
We encourage you to become a full covenant partner of Restoration form Zion  Our partners commit to prayer and regular giving (monthly is so helpful), so that our work outside the United States can be carried on.  The work of mentoring leaders, travelling to bring alignment to Messianic Jews and the streams of the Church, and helping to strengthen congregations is only possible because of those who regularly support us.  We ask that you would pray and ask the Spirit to show you if you are to become one of our Covenant Partners.  Then do let us know.
