Medical Missions: God Is Moving in Zimbabwe!

January 27, 2015

“The nursing station for our medical clinic in Zimbabwe was a bustling hub of activity. What was so unique was the sporadic arrival of the most sick pushed in wheelbarrows by their friends and family members over the rough terrain in the hot sun and to our doorstep. These and others arrived in their one-wheeled ambulances to be ministered to, seeking our help in their desperation. In the name of Yeshua we gave our all, knowing that ‘to the extent that we did it to one of these…even to the least...

Remembering the Holocaust

January 27, 2015

Seventy years ago, on January 27th, 1945, Russian soldiers approached the gates of Auschwitz and were astonished. One recounted, "We saw emaciated, tortured, impoverished people. We could tell from their eyes that they were happy to be saved…. Happy that now they weren't threatened by death in a crematorium” (CNN). The Holocaust. It is the most sickening example of unbridled anti-Semitism the world has ever seen. Six million Jewish People died at the hands of Hitler’s Nazi regime. They died f...

What Happened As Israel Defended Itself?

January 23, 2015

Once again, God has demonstrated His ability and willingness to supernaturally intervene to help Israel defend herself militarily. The annals of Israeli combat — going all the way back to the war triggered by the nation’s founding in 1948 — are filled with miraculous events and amazing “coincidences” that helped Israel overcome against all odds. We witnessed another such coincidence earlier this week when Israel attacked a Lebanon-bound convoy believed to be carrying missile-related suppli...

CARING FOR THE LOST ONES OF GONDAR When you think of Ethiopia, you might not picture the city of Gondar. A Westerner expecting sun-blasted flatlands finds instead a medium-sized city of rolling hills, trees, and the ruins of past wars. But for the Beta Israel — the ancient tribe of lost Israelites we came to serve — Gondar is a place of unrelieved hardship and suffering . . . at least, on most days of the year. Imagine living as an outcast and a persecuted foreigner, despite the fact that...

God is Bringing His People Back to Israel

January 15, 2015

Earlier this week, four coffins arrived at Ben Gurion International Airport. They carried the bodies of four victims of last week’s terrorist siege of a kosher grocery in Paris. That attack coincided with another deadly terrorist assault on the offices of a satirical French magazine. In total, 17 people died in the two attacks. The attack on the kosher market was only the most recent in a long, escalating series of anti-Semitic incidents in France. It’s a pattern that has French Jews leavi...
