Jewish Voice Ministries International (JVMI) has been in relationships with certain Ukrainian Messianic congregations since the 1990s. A little JVMI history might be helpful.
About a year ago, we posted our 2021 Outreach schedule – six events serving scattered Jewish communities in Ethiopia and Zimbabwe. Our hope was to navigate the many hurdles that come with traveling internationally and holding large events that operate within COVID-19 guidelines. Truthfully, the plan was written in pencil, and we prepared ourselves for postponements, reschedules, and cancellations.

Why We Choose Filters Over Wells Clean water is critical to life and good health. According to the World Health Organization, the third leading cause of death among children under 5 years old is directly related to contaminated drinking water.

I sit amazed at what the Lord has allowed JVMI and our partners to accomplish in a year that must be planned in pencil and when everything points to the need for flexibility. 2021 has been a year filled with opportunities through doors that only the Lord could open, as we continue to navigate the ever-changing landscape of COVID restrictions and international travel.

It was the notorious winter snowstorm of 2021, and unbeknown to Jewish Voice Outreach Partner Danita (not pictured here), it was barreling in on her rural town in southern Illinois. Typically a last-minute packer, Danita had surprised herself by having her suitcases filled and ready to go nearly a week before she needed to leave for the Fiche, Ethiopia, Outreach in February. That came in handy a few days before her trip when she needed to travel to a nearby town for her required COVID-19 test. ...Read More
