Dear Faithful Friend,
As promised we are sending out our monthly postal letter at the end of the month. Many of you do not receive it at home and we would like to share what we are thinking and feeling. We pray that you will be encouraged and strengthened as we share a small part of the heart of the Lord with you.
We also want to let you know that today is the last day of my treatments. Praise God "It is finished!" and I am healed. To him be the glory.
Zion's Glory has been pursuing the purposes of God for nearly twenty years. It was the year before we made aliyah that we realized we would need help for our new life in Israel. We did not know what God wanted us to do or where in Israel we would live, but we never doubted that he would show us the way and provide for all of our needs. We prayed and in response God had us birth Zion's Glory. And through Zion's Glory, he gave us you!
Twenty years later, we can boldly declare that God has surpassed our expectations and dreams. By his grace, we have poured out our lives and touched many. We have helped raise up two thriving congregations which have been beacons of light shining in a dark place and throughout, you have been there to make it all possible. So first and foremost, Jackie and I want to express an overwhelming "Thank you" for all you have done. We are a "team" and we have accomplished much.
We also know and believe that God has so much more that he wants us to do and we set our eyes on all that is yet to come. We read and understand from the scriptures that on that wonderful day of His return, His feet will touch down in Jerusalem and there will be a body of believers there welcoming him and praising His wonderful name. As the word declares; "All Israel shall be saved".
For this to be fulfilled, each of us must be very bold. We must break the power of the lie which blinds the eyes and hardens the hearts of so many in Israel. We must shine forth with the love and light of Yeshua. It is not easy! We often share the Lord and are met with judgement, anger and rejection, but no matter, we continue to shine. By God's grace and your help, we will see His Word fulfilled. Israel will come to faith. Those bound by religious spirits will be set free and experience the love of God. They will turn from their "dead end" onto the "way of life".
In the natural, we can not imagine how God's wonderful promises will ever be fulfilled but praise God, we are not bound by the natural. We have been loosed in the supernatural by the Holy Spirit and we "set our hearts on things above where Messiah is seated at the right hand of God." There we see his love and passion for each person, for Israel and for all the peoples of the earth. And as our eyes and hearts encounter him, we receive "power from on high". How incredible it is that God, who could bring forth his Kingdom all alone, has instead entrusted his heart's desire to us as we walk in obedience and faith. His word is "Yes and Amen" and we receive from him all that we need to succeed.
With God's help, we are a team that can not be stopped or defeated! Our eyes have beheld the Glory of the Lord, and we will press on towards that awesome end that he has promised.
We thank you with all of our hearts.
We send you our love from Zion,
