A Day to Remember

January 27, 2020

Why do we mark the anniversaries of horrific days in history? Dates like December 7, June 6 and September 11 mark tragic events that grieve the heart.* Some people may not want to bring the somber past into the present with a day of remembering. Why dwell on it? Why pull from the record books stories of the tragedy and suffering? We – as a world community, as nations, as individuals – commemorate for several reasons: To help ensure such things do not happen again To remember those who...

We are praying for clear vision and big faith!

January 22, 2020

We are praying for clear vision and big faith as we scout out the opportunities before us. Before we go on any of our 2020 Outreaches, a small group from our Global Ministries staff will head to Africa on a scouting trip. We do this every year as it helps us better understand the areas to which we are headed. It enables us to preview resources, make decisions and arrangements onsite, build relationships, and bring back key information that will inform how we plan and prepare for the Outreache...

There’s an exciting trip in March that needs you on the roster!

January 14, 2020

Enewari is a rural, farming community where medical care is scarce and too costly for many of the impoverished people living there. They have nothing to give but their gratitude, but you’ll receive so much more when you offer your skills to help them. “I just thought it would be harder than it is. I get tired, but when I come back at the end of each day, Jewish Voice has thought about everything. They serve me as I serve.” —Viviane, Surgeon You Are Needed: Physicians Dermato...

Transform more lives in 2020

January 03, 2020

Over the past 35 years, God has given me the opportunity to travel from one end of the globe to the other — to country after country, proclaiming the name of Yeshua (Jesus) to the Jewish people and their neighbors. And one thing I’ve learned in all my travels is … it’s critical to be prepared: whether it’s logistics and itineraries, what to pack or even spiritual preparation. Even our Jewish Voice Medical Outreach volunteers spend a great deal of time praying and fasting before their trip....

Chanukah, Night 8: Miracle of Rededication

December 29, 2019

The word Chanukah means “dedication,” and the miracles the holiday celebrates center on the rededication of the Temple. The victory God won for the Maccabees brought a fresh start for Jewish worship. At last, they had their Temple back, and they could honor God as He had called them. As Believers, whose bodies are called temples of God (1 Corinthians 6:19–20), we have the opportunity of renewed dedication every day. Each new dawn offers us the potential for starting over, drawing closer to Go...

Chanukah, Night 7: Miracle of His Light Shining Through Us

December 28, 2019

As we look at Chanukah and its miracle of light, we can’t forget the remarkable fact that God uses us to shine His light to the world. He places His Spirit inside each one who puts their faith in Jesus as the Messiah. And His light in us reveals Him to those around us. When we love as the Bible commands us and serve selflessly as Jesus did, we display God’s goodness and point a hurting world to Him. New Covenant Scriptures call us to live by the power of God’s Spirit in us rather than from ou...

Chanukah, Night 6: Miracle of Purification

December 27, 2019

God’s instructions for building the Temple had included meticulous detail and beauty. The Temple was His holy dwelling place; it had to be pure. Its desecration at the hands of Antiochus’ regime was unbearable for God’s people. When they regained the Temple, they wanted to cleanse it and rededicate it as soon as possible. God performed the miracle of the oil, enabling the light to burn as they went about this most holy task. God works miracles in our hearts through the gift of new life and th...

Look at what God did in 2019!

December 26, 2019

Through God’s provision, more than 91,000 people received physical healing and spiritual hope this year through the Outreaches of Jewish Voice Ministries International. These are individual people with real needs that God met through the work He has called us to do. And we are grateful to Him.Here are a few highlights of what God did in 2019: In Ambo Meda, Ethiopia, by God’s grace, He enabled us to treat more patients in a five-day Medical Clinic than we ever had before, changing 17,878 lives...

Chanukah, Night 5: Miracle of God’s Light

December 26, 2019

Chanukah is about a miracle of light. One of the ways the Bible uses the word light is to represent knowledge. It’s a metaphor that is still used today: we are “enlightened” when we have knowledge and understanding but we’re “in the dark” when we don’t. In the Psalms, David refers to God’s Word as a lamp to light his way. A dark path conceals all kinds of dangers, but enter light, and we have information to guide our steps. With light, obstacles become visible and predators exposed. We see wh...
