March 23, 2022

BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS AND EXPLORING CONNECTIONS It’s here! The scouting trip we’ve been telling you about for the last several months is starting today. We have some prayer requests to share with you and a way for you to sign up to cover the trip dates in prayer. We are taking what we’re hearing from the Lord very seriously and proactively to reach all the remaining scattered Jewish tribes over the next decade or so. In order to take the next steps, three of our JVMI leaders are currently...

U.S. calls on Israel for more sanctions on Russia

March 18, 2022

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.” Psalm 122:6 (NIV) Shalom, my friend. Peace is heavy on my heart. The peace of Jerusalem. Peace for the Jewish people around the world – especially those caught in the middle of the current war in Ukraine. And I pray that you have peace in your own heart and mind as we continue to navigate global conflict and uncertainty. While the Scriptures tell us to pray for the “peace of Jerusalem” in any and every season – my heart is moved for us to be mo...

Israel globally condemns Russia’s actions in Ukraine

March 11, 2022

“The LORD gives strength to His people; the LORD blesses His people with peace.” Psalm 29:11 (NIV) Shalom, my friend. With so much tension and turmoil around the world, we must be more vigilant than ever to do battle through our prayers by asking God to intervene and accomplish His purposes. And this isn’t just about the global enemies who are surrounding Israel — it’s also about our own lives. We must be a people of prayer. That in every circumstance we face, we’re quick to hand o...

Israel supports Ukraine, is wary of Russia

March 04, 2022

“Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD.” Psalm 31:24 (NIV) Shalom, my friend. While the global situation feels overwhelming – as we continue to hear breaking news about the situation in Ukraine – it would be easy to give in to the darkness. But let me encourage you: no matter what you’re facing, no matter what you may feel inside, “be strong” and “take heart.” And the only way to do these things . . . is to place all your desires, circumstances and hopes in God’s h...

Purim – Mordecai’s Faith and Esther’s Courage

March 02, 2022

It’s a remarkable “God story” told in the only book of the Bible that never mentions God. The book of Esther describes the history behind Purim, an annual Jewish holiday known for its festive celebrations. God was at work behind the scenes, setting circumstances up to deliver the Jewish people from certain destruction. In the Purim story, two heroes emerge to inspire and challenge our relationships with the Lord today – Mordecai with his undeterred faith and Esther with her resolute courage. ...

Warming signs between Israel and Egypt?

February 25, 2022

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. May those who love you be secure.” (Psalm 122:6 NIV) Shalom, my friend. While we celebrate many victories this week – including the historic partnership between Israel and Bahrain and the deepening friendship with Egypt – I’m reminded by the Scriptures that we must remain vigilant in praying for continual peace. This is especially true now, as it appears the Iran nuclear talks in Vienna are on the verge of concluding – though the outcome is at best ...

Prayer Points: Will You Pray For Us?

February 21, 2022

Will you pray for us as we head to Zimbabwe for our first Outreach of 2022? Although we have ministered to the Lemba in this region before, this will be our first time in this particular community, and we are excited!

We know the region and have good partnerships there, yet we know that nothing of last...

Iran establishing closer ties with Iraq, attacks on Israel a greater threat

February 11, 2022

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem . . .” Psalm 122:6 (NIV) Shalom, my friend. The crisis in the Middle East – the conflict, uncertainty and animosity against Israel and the Jewish people – continues to escalate. And while there’s every reason to be concerned, I stand on the knowledge that God is in control of every situation. I believe He will intervene and work everything according to His own purposes. As the Scriptures declare, “God’s ways are not our own.” But in the midst of...
