[Special Discount] Zimbabwe Is Calling... Will You Answer?

April 08, 2015

Thousands will come in need of medical attention. How many will we have to turn away? It is life-changing to deliver medical care to people who so desperately need it, who have never had it, and have no other opportunity to receive it. It’s the kind of thing that impacts the givers as much as the receivers. We need you. They need you. Hurting children and fragile men and women in Zimbabwe need healing and hope. Jewish Voice medical outreaches provide both. And they are making a profoun...

Medical Missions: We Can't Forget the Looks on Those Faces

April 07, 2015

Thousands deep, the line will stretch from the heart of the village into the grassy African plain on the edge of the town called Mberengwa in Zimbabwe. Most of the people standing in it will have left home before dawn to wait there — drawn by wonderful news that spreads from friend to neighbor to family member . . . The clinic is back! At the back of the line will stand farmers who could only come after tending their livestock; joined by mothers of young children who had to attend to ho...

Obama's Coming Break with Israel

April 02, 2015

A Washington Post headline this week shouted, “Obama’s Next Earthquake.” Those words appeared over an editorial by Jackson Diehl, the Deputy Editorial Page Editor of one of America’s most prestigious newspapers. What was this coming “earthquake?” The answer lies in the headline of an article that appeared on the same day in another online magazine: “Obama’s Coming Break with Israel.” Both pieces are talking about the likelihood that the United States is about to add its support to a Uni...

Passover: Of Sacrifice, Blood, and Freedom

April 01, 2015

Leave it to God to infuse into the Passover scene a shadow of something not yet present. The Passover and Yeshua – the Lamb of God – share dramatic similarities that are not coincidence. God is powerful to reveal Himself and His eternal life-saving plan throughout the entire Bible, not just when we meet Yeshua in the New Testament. When God delivered the Israelites from slavery in Egypt, He knew that millennia later the time would be ripe for Him to dwell on earth with us as Yeshua (Jesus) an...

The deadline for negotiations between Iran and the P5+1 countries regarding Iran’s nuclear program has been extended in Lausanne, Switzerland where talks are taking place.

Rather, it’s a deal to simply keep talking. Now, the Times of Israel is reporting that the U.S. State Department has said, “We’ve made enough progress in th...

March 26, 2015

Love in action. That’s what JVMI medical missions are. "Her anguished cries rose above all other voices in the busy prayer room.

My Prayer for Israel before the Arizona Legislature

March 25, 2015

Yesterday, I had the distinct honor of opening the Arizona State House of Representatives in prayer. I was initially invited in connection with a resolution they planned to vote on that day but due to some pressure from opponents to the resolution, they had to move it up a day, so it was voted on the day before. Following is my opening prayer and the resolution that was passed. The resolution will be sent on to the Governor of Arizona and to President Obama. Our House and Senate here in...
