Emulate Biblical times with this special instrument, and praise the Almighty for His never ending love and devotion to His beloved people!

We are always supporting Israel, the beloved ones for their father’s sake, with our prayers and part of our tithing. We are also looking forward to the day our Lord will stand up for Israel when the nations will try to destroy it, and all Israel will be saved! What a day that will be! Zach 12: 9,10 and Zach 14: 3, 4. In the near future we might come to Israel to see it, and visit our planted garden, if possible. –MATTHEW & MARGO KOSTER
