Many of you have met our older son Ariel, director of the Medabrim site on Facebook, and his lovely wife Shayla, who leads the children’s ministry at Kehilat Ha Carmel near Haifa. Thank you for blessing their ministry at Tree of Life and their three children.
Now we’d like to introduce you to our younger son Avi and his beautiful wife Liora who are expecting their first child next month! They live in Jerusalem and are part of King of Kings Congregation. Avi teaches Krav Maga, Israeli hand to hand combat, and through this he’s been able to share Messiah with his students. He also works closely with Ariel on Medabrim where both our sons spend many hours each day chatting with Israeli seekers. Liora helps Avi at the Krav Maga studio and she’s also studying at the only Israeli believers college to become a counselor – she’s going to make a great one!
After a joyful evening in our Galilee home, we sent some friends in tour groups to Avi and Liora where they reported that they thoroughly enjoyed the brief hands-on seminar on what to do in the event of a knife attack! Afterwards, Avi shared testimonies about Israeli seekers finding Messiah – so encouraging!
Richard loves to train with Avi when in Jerusalem, and even I took this seminar so if I can learn a little Krav Maga, so can you! Thanks so much for prayerfully considering bringing your groups to them and please keep them in prayer. Feel free to contact them directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com
When the Ministry of Interior, MOI tried to throw Shayla out of Israel, Michael Decker, our lawyer, took the MOI to court where they were required to state the reason for this. But they couldn’t justify their actions so now we have a court date at a high court in Jerusalem on September 26. Shayla, Ariel and Michael will make an appeal for her right to citizenship so thank you for praying for favor and a just decision!
We do thank G-d that Liora finally received a work visa! What should’ve come in 2 weeks took 2 years…
May you have a sweet New Year, a meaningful fast and a joyful Sukkot!
If you’ll be in Jerusalem during the Feast of Tabernacles please join us and the local Body of Messiah plus believers from the ends of the earth as we wait upon the L-rd together.
Feel free to share these Scripture verses in English and Hebrew with photos I took mostly in Israel. Enjoy more photos like this on my Facebook page and thank you so much for clicking on LIKE if you like the page!
Thank you so much for your prayers for our prodigals too. We know that we can’t do all that we do without the love, prayers and support of the saints like you all!
