Greetings in the Name of Yeshua:

WOMEN'S CONFERENCE


Patty: A couple of weeks ago I returned from a whirlwind visit to the States to speak at a women's conference led by the leaders of Ahavat Yeshua in Washington, DC and connected to Tikkun America.  There were about 100 women present and the sharing of the leaders and speakers was powerful.  Many said afterwards that it was one of the most life changing women's conferences that they had ever attended.  The themes were about breaking the chains of lies that so easily entangle us and keep us from being fruitful.  I had the pleasure of sharing on breaking the lies of rejection that haunt so many of us.  I also had the closing talk of the conference speaking about living out of our identities as new creations.  Please go to the Ahavat Yeshua website and listen to all the messages there.  I think you will agree that they are impacting.

On my trip home from the States I finally came to the realization of “what I wanted to be when I grew up” (tongue in cheek).  And being a traveling, over the seas, women's minister/conference speaker is not it.  Sometimes you just have to do something, even if only once, to know it is not you.  I left on a Thursday and came back on the following Monday.  It was grueling to say the least.  My heart is not in being an anointed speaker, even though - in God's grace - it bore some fruit.  My joy is in loving my family and mentoring the future leaders in Israel and in the States.  There is no activity under the sun that is more rewarding than investing in people.  I am doing what I really love ... what a discovery!

ORDINATION OF FIRST YOUNG ELDER AT AHAVAT YESHUA

We recently witnessed a milestone achievement at our congregation in Jerusalem: Jonathan, our son-in-law, was ordained as an elder.  Why a milestone?  The major leaders of the Messianic Jewish movement both in the States and in Israel are growing older.  Most of us are in our middle to late sixties and we sense that there is a growing urgency to pass the torch on to the next generation.  This has triggered great resistance in the spiritual realm as the enemy does not want generational transfer to succeed.  Many ministries falter or stumble when the founder or founding generation step back or die in harness.  But this is not the biblical model: Israel was established as a people and as a nation of God on the basis of God's visiting Abraham, Isaac and Jacob with the vision for them and their 'seed' in relationship with himself.  Then, God used Moses to solidify the people as a nation, through signs and wonders, an outstretched arm and the giving and making of a formal covenant.  Finally, Joshua led the people into the Land to take possession of the inheritance he had promised to the patriarchs.

Each generation must receive a fresh revelation of the vision and purpose of a movement of God in order for that movement not to stagnate.  Each successive leader must lead out of and commit to the vision because they have received it as a conviction in their own heart, not just because it was what his predecessors believed.  He must have the sense of having been personally called into the vision and not simply operate in maintenance mode or drift into a holding pattern.  With Jonathan and his wife, Simcha, we have a couple who are passionate for the apostolic/prophetic establishment of a people in Israel … a restored people moving in the love of God through the power of the Holy Spirit.  Their convictions go deep and they have been willing to pay the price to take on the responsibility of shepherding a flock into this vision.

DAN’S TRIP TO ROME
 

Dan:  I have just returned from Rome where an important 16-year dialogue with Roman Catholic leaders reached its natural conclusion.  We have covered most topics and shared openly where we agree and disagree.  This year four papers were presented, including one that I presented on the Last Days and the Millennium.  It was very well received.  I especially pointed to the promises connected to Israel and the Land, both now and in the Millennium.  My point also was that it is difficult to see how Israel will corporately turn to the Lord without the concentration of a center of leadership in Jerusalem.  This is the prophecy of Yeshua, that from Jerusalem we will say, “Blessed is He that comes in the name of the Lord.”

This dialogue takes place in a context of the need for repentance due to much of the sad history of the relationship between Catholics, Jews and Messianic Jews.  The sense was that we have now exhausted the relevant topics that are important.  We now are moving to a new stage of initiatives toward the recognition of the restored Messianic Jewish movement.  This is not the end of the initiative, but the beginning of more important efforts.

EXTRA FUNDS
 
Thank you so much for continuing to pray for us.  Our Restoration from Zion Fund has been funding the publishing process for making Dan's books fully available in print.  He has four new books that have been published this past year and our fund had to pay for all the publications ... a large amount.  Please know that all the profits from these books go back into the ministry.  And, the sales of these books do not begin to cover the self-publishing costs.  It is our desire to get the truth of these books distributed to many.  Also, all our world travel comes from this fund ... trips to Asia and Europe, and to the States.  Please pray for greater funds to come in to cover these added costs.  You are a blessing.
