Stand with us in 2021!

January 08, 2021

The new year is upon us! After all we have experienced in 2020, I imagine you might feel like me – thankful for a fresh start. I believe because of everything that took place this past year – from the coronavirus pandemic to political turmoil to numerous natural disasters and more – 2021 will be a crucial year of ministry. God is using all of these challenges to open the hearts and minds of many, including Jewish people in Israel and around the world. That’s why we need you now more than e...

Potential for another strict lockdown in Israel

January 07, 2021

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) As we leave behind a tremendously difficult year, we look to 2021 with expectation and hope. While 2021 hasn't gotten off to the best start in the U.S., we know that as we move into this new year, we take God’s promises with us – He has a hope and a future for each one of us!

God made the way

December 22, 2020

There’s nothing like a global pandemic to disrupt the best-made plans. We had scheduled four Medical Outreaches for 2020. Our first was cut short by local opposition, and then, coronavirus struck. Throughout the months of travel restrictions, we turned our focus more to the Israel ministries that your gifts to Jewish Voice support, helping them address the increased ministry demands there. With your help, we were also determined to do what we could in Africa amid COVID’s complicating fac...

YOU can make a difference!

December 18, 2020

With just two weeks left in 2020, I’m praying you are able to reply right away. It’s been quite a year, but God has carried us through the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic and quarantine. He has brought blessings — including historic peace deals for Israel with Arab countries. And I believe in all that is happening, God is showing us the End Times are near. I feel greater urgency to fulfill our vision “to transform lives and see all Israel saved.” Please partner with us one last time...
