Dan: In the beginning of October I traveled to Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, and Hernhut, Germany for a prayer journey and for the Toward Jerusalem Council II board. The goal of this initiative is the alignment of the whole Church world-wide with the Messianic Jewish community. The Toward Jerusalem Council II initiative continues to grow world wide, with chapters in most countries in Western Europe, a growing presence in East Asia, and South America.
One week before we left Israel we were part of a major seminar of leaders featuring Dr. Walter Kaiser, the former President of Gordon Conwell Seminary. Dr. Kaiser, one of the world’s leading Old Testament scholars, is now 82 years old, and still amazingly sharp. His theology is very solid and very foundational in building a quality Messianic Jewish theology. One of the great challenges in Israel is building a solid theological consensus. This is one burden that I carry almost daily. The other issue that I carry is good government and mutual accountability among leaders and congregations in Israel.
The schedule I will now embrace is very heavy. It will take me to New York, Tennessee, Texas and California to teach, strengthen congregations, for three regional institutes and very important times of mentoring. In Texas, I will be teaching a course for the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute, the King’s University.
Thank you again for all your love, prayers and support!
In Messiah's Love,
Dan and Patty
