Now They Call Me Sir

June 06, 2019

The green and white bus lumbered over the bumpy dirt road as it eased to a stop. Through its windows, the passengers could see that the Jewish Voice Ministries International (JVMI) Medical Outreach in Ambo Meda, Ethiopia, bustled with thousands of patients. There were people everywhere – inside tents in makeshift examination rooms, under canopies in waiting areas and in lines that stretched as far as the eye could see. Inside the bus were our special guests – the Beta Israel Jewish people fro...

Protecting the Beta Israel in Northern Ethiopia

June 05, 2019

Fear has no place in the life of a Believer in Yeshua (Jesus). We know that the power of His Spirit lives inside of us, and we are more than conquerors through Him who loves us. However, life’s challenges often seem overwhelming. Debt, sickness, and in some places of the world, persecution, can make us feel less than powerful, even vulnerable. In a tiny village in Northern Ethiopia (you won’t even find it on a map), Beta Israel Jewish people know this vulnerability well. Each day in this pl...

The Passover deliverance they long for

March 13, 2019

Hani isn’t her real name, but her experience is real. She was just 17 years old. Our hearts were broken, because there wasn’t a thing we could do for her medically. But we did the one thing we can always do -- we prayed that God would heal her. Hani and her father prayed a simple prayer too, placing their faith in Yeshua (Jesus) as Messiah. We weren’t sure we would ever see them again. That was troubling. The seizures were taking a toll on Hani. They came at the worst possible times. Each ...

He was 16 years old, and you couldn’t help being drawn to him. He was articulate and extremely personable ‒ intelligent beyond his years and markedly confident, but without arrogance. But he had questions. He came to speak with someone at the Jewish Voice Ministries International (JVMI) prayer room, held in conjunction with the Alamata, Ethiopia, Medical Outreach. He sat down with Paula and an interpreter. Paula is the Prayer Coordinator at JVMI headquarters. For more than eight years, she...

Eyes of Violet: A Mudanda, Zimbabwe, Story

October 25, 2018

“Wear your purple shirt today.” It wasn’t an audible voice Rachel Benson heard that morning in Mudanda, Zimbabwe. She heard it in her spirit. Since Rachel isn’t one to draw attention to herself, most everything she brought on the Jewish Voice Ministries International (JVMI) Medical Outreach was in subdued tones, blacks and khakis – except for the purple t-shirt with two words in sparkling rhinestone script across the front. A mentor friend had encouraged her to bring it along. In her tent ...

'Like stepping back in time...'

October 16, 2018

Our team reports it was like stepping back in time. Our first Medical Clinic this year in a new village in the Gondar Province of Ethiopia was a shock. Most of the Jewish descendants of ancient tribes in that area, along with other local people, live in small, one-room huts made from sticks plastered with mud and animal dung. The floors are dirt. And many of the people cook over wood fires insidetheir huts – which leads to serious respiratory problems from smoke inhalation. What was mos...
