Great is God’s faithfulness

June 09, 2021

“Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness." (Lamentations 3:22-23 NIV) Shalom, my friend. As the verse above makes clear, our God is full of compassion, and He is the very definition of faithful. In this we take heart. I believe it’s more important than ever for us to show Jewish people that we stand with them. We’re seeing a wave of anti-Semitism in North America, and there is simply...

Prayer Points: You Prayed, and the Lord Answered!

June 07, 2021

We are praising the Lord for recent congregational visits that two of our JVMI leaders made to Africa last month, and we want to thank you for your prayers. Logging approximately 27,000 air miles and almost 1,300 on land, our two team members visited 17 congregations and ministered to around 12,000 people. The Lord answered your prayers for their safe travels and good health throughout, and He enabled them to see Him do amazing things as they ministered. We marvel at the scope of what the Lor...

Hope for tomorrow, beginning today

June 02, 2021

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (NIV) Shalom, my friend. As we head into this new month of June, I cannot thank you enough for standing with Israel. Your love of and support for the Jewish people is more critical now than ever. It means so much to me – and to the entire ministry of Jewish Voice – to have your faithful partnership. Please take heart in the word...

Open the door to share the Good News

June 01, 2021

I’m so thankful you understand how crucial it is to not only meet the needs of vulnerable Jewish people, but even more important, to share the life-transforming message of the Gospel! So much has changed in our nation and our world this past year, but one thing has not changed – the Lord’s great love for the Jewish people. I believe this motivates you, like it does me. Our God deeply desires for His people to return to Him and to say yes to His Son, Jesus. And when we meet basic, critical ...

Will the ceasefire hold?

May 27, 2021

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27 (NIV) Shalom, my friend. Although the latest news reported from Israel is a ceasefire, this doesn’t stop – or even slow – our need to continue to pray for Israel and her people. I’m so thankful you share my love and concern for the Jewish people. Not only do we need to continue praying for peace in Israel, but I’m also asking you to ...

Lord of Israel and the nations!

May 25, 2021

The Lord declared, in both the Tanach (Old Testament) and the Brit Chadashah (New Testament), that His house was to be a house of prayer “for all nations.” He loves His people Israel and wants the world to know that He is their God. He also extends His love and purposes to Gentiles in the nations. Today we are praying for Israel and the nations, reflecting the heart of God for all peoples to know Him through Yeshua (Jesus). May He use our prayers to accomplish the work He calls us to at this tim...

Keep Praying for Israel

May 21, 2021

“May the LORD answer you when you are in distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.” Psalm 20:1 (NIV) Shalom, my friend. I am so thankful for your partnership and for your love and concern for Israel and the Jewish people. Again, I come to you asking for prayers as I share news from this past week. We know our Lord hears and answers when we pray, so please join me in lifting up Israel and her people. It has been another tragic few days. Shavuot, the Festival of Wee...

Nothing Could Keep Her Away

May 21, 2021

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. ...

“Israel Needs Your Prayers”

May 14, 2021

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth change.” (Psalm 46:2-3 TLV) Shalom, my friend. I am writing to you with a heavy heart to ask for your prayers for Israel and her people. This week we’ve seen the largest clash between Palestinian terror groups in Gaza and Israel Defense Forces (IDF) since 2014. Terror groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad have fired more than 1,700 rockets and mortars at major Israeli cities and Isra...

Praying for Salvation in Southern Ethiopia

May 11, 2021

We’re heading back to Ethiopia! We are so happy that doors are opening, and we are preparing to walk through them with the Lord’s guidance and grace. Our Outreach to southern Ethiopia is May 20–30. We will be revisiting a location where we previously experienced the community’s welcome and the Lord’s working. However, we don’t want to go there resting on past experience, but instead by faith and intercession for the ministry at hand. Your prayers are deeply appreciated for every step of th...
