Dan: I was invited to share at the leadership summit at IHOP (International House of Prayer) and then to be on two panels, one on Israel and one on Islam and Racism. Being in partnership with IHOP is one of those very special relationships, which originally began 25 years ago when our leadership visited Kansas City. It was a great joy to share about the “Last Days” message on the resurrection of the Messianic Jewish Community in Israel and the times in which we live and are to come. There was a very good response. New relationships were formed as well that I expect will have implications for the advancing of the Kingdom.
I was scheduled to teach a course on “Israel, the Church and the Last Days Eschatology” for The King’s University/Messianic Jewish Bible Institute. They have relocated from California to be part of the Gateway campus in Dallas, TX. However, due to the mechanics of establishing a new organization, the course was not significantly promoted and has had to be rescheduled. Nevertheless, I thought it best to make the trip since I was also to train the Jewish ministry staff for Gateway Church. In addition, I wanted to have a meeting with Robert Morris on his role in Jewish ministry as well as time with the Jewish ministry pastor of Gateway. These meetings were very important and very meaningful. As a side benefit, I was able to spend time with my brother-in-law after several years, which was a special reunion (My sister died in 2010). I also had an appointment with John Kelly of the International Coalition of Apostolic Leaders and with the Missions Pastor of Gateway Church.
We pray that you have a blessed new year and that you will prosper in every way. We cannot thank you enough for your ongoing faithfulness. You are a blessing!
In Messiah's Love,
Dan and Patty
