BACK IN THE LAND
 
How wonderful to be back home in Israel and to see all our family again.  We feel so blessed as we finish unpacking in our new home.  As you may remember, before we left for the States in May we had just received the keys of the new home that we have purchased together with our daughter, her husband and four children.  We never got a chance to fully unpack and to set up home, but now after living here for three weeks, we feel at peace and are setting down some roots.  We are at the life-stage of downsizing and simplifying and are experiencing the emotions of newlyweds!  Our apartment is so much smaller that before, but is now more manageable.  Then we have the joy of having our family living above us. I love it when the grandkids come downstairs to hang out and we can often join them for dinner.  Even though we are keeping up a full schedule of ministering and administration it somehow feels as though we are slowing down.

We are now getting ready to go to Singapore on September 14 for the Toward Jerusalem Council II initiative that we have written about before.  This is a very important trip for bringing some major Asian church leaders together in unity in support of the goals and purposes of TJCII. Please keep us in prayer as well as praying for the meetings and relationship building.

BEN INSTALLED AS AN ELDER IN JERUSALEM

This past week we had the joy of participating in the ordination of our son, Ben, as he was set in as an elder of one of the Jerusalem Messianic congregations, Melech HaMalchim under the leadership of Oded and Sandy Shoshani.  We  are so proud of him and his wife Lorena.  This was a major milestone in their journey with the Lord.  Please keep this family in prayer as their eldest daughter just went in to the draft board to register for army service.  She wants to do national service instead of the army but this needs special permission for a woman to be released to do this.  As you know, it is mandatory for all high-school graduates, both men and women, of high school to serve their country for 1 to 3 years.

Ben will be traveling to the States next week to represent us at the 20th anniversary of the International House of Prayer in Kansas City.  We have been blessed to be connected to Mike Bickle, the main leader of IHOP, since 1990.  IHOP has been committed to pray for Israel and for the Messianic believers and leaders in the Land for over 20 years.  We can never really know how much their prayers have done to launch us into Israel and to provide a protective covering over many.  We bless Mike and his dear wife, Diane for remaining faithful to their vision of 24/7 harp and bowl worship and prayer all these years. What a blessing to be able to tune into the live worship sets at IHOP almost anywhere in the world.  As a result of their influence other 24/7 prayer centers have sprung up.  Plus, Mike is one of our favorite teachers and has hundreds of excellent teachings available to people worldwide.

MEDITATING ON THE MYSTERY
 
Just before returning to Israel, I had the privilege of speaking at our yearly Living Free Women’s Conference, which is held in Ellicott City, MD.  One of my talks was about the greatest gift of all, love.  I unpacked the mystery of God’s love as it is expressed in his sovereignty and our free will.  We will never be able to delve fully into the depths of Romans 9 and understand how God can pre-ordain something while we still have our free will. How can Joseph say to his brothers, “It was not you who sent me to Egypt but God that many lives may be spared. What you meant for harm, God meant for good” (Genesis 45;8, 50:20).  Yes, the brothers did sin and suffered much pain of conscience over their lifetimes, but God showed Abraham many years before that his descendants would be slaves in Egypt and would dwell there for 400 years.  So, did God cause Joseph's brothers to sin?  This is the mystery and this apparent injustice leaves us with only one appropriate response, worship.  Because of the nature of these mysteries of God’s sovereignty and his character of love, we will for ever be getting glimpses of understanding without fulling knowing.  As we mediate on Him, the revelatory landscape is always changing, depending on where you turn your heart.  Oh, the depths and the riches of the love and mercy of God who never acts in contradiction to who he is!

COVENANT PARTNERS
 
Dan:  We encourage you to become a full covenant partner of Restoration From Zion.  Our partners commit to prayer and regular giving (monthly is so very helpful for consistent support), so that our work outside the United States can be continued.  The work of mentoring leaders, travel to bring alignment between Messianic Judaism 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.
 
FEATURE BOOK
 
Dan: I  want to start featuring one book of ours in every letter.   I urge you to check out my recent book, Heaven, Hell and the After Life, What the Bible Really Teaches.  This important book can greatly encourage you.   If you contribute $25.00 or more this month we will send it to you. Just send a note with your donation that you would like this book.
