Shalom dear Friends and Prayer Partners,

While outside in my garden, a neighbor asked me about the music coming from a building across the main road.  I told him it’s a Messianic congregation.  Just then two other neighbors strolled by so he proclaimed, “Look, it’s a Beit Knesset (synagogue) across the street”, and pointing to our home, “And a Beit Knesset at home!”  I found it remarkable that they all agreed!  To many Israelis, Jewish followers of Yeshua are considered Jewish, but to the Ministry of Interior, MOI, it’s a different story…

We know that our real citizenship is in Heaven, so we have peace about the recent update on our status. The MOI seems to have focused on a new target, not our precious daughter-in-law, but me, Carolyn! They are claiming that I’m supposedly no longer Jewish because I follow Yeshua.  So they told the judge they’re going to try to remove my citizenship, which would mean our whole family’s citizenship would be in jeopardy.  Of course we realize that this is not about us, but about trying to remove the remnant of Israel, the only people qualified to say, “Baruch Haba b’Shem Adonai” – “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the L-rd” before Yeshua returns to reign.  

When Arye Deri, the head of the MOI and Shas political party was released from prison after his conviction of many crimes, he was promptly reinstalled in his previous position.  He has many people under his authority, and they have recommended that our citizenship be revoked.  Now it’s up to Arye Deri to decide if it will go to court and if it does, it could possibly become a Supreme Court case. 

May the Holy One of Israel visit Arye and his wife Yaffa, who are both currently under investigation for the same crimes.  Please don’t hate or mock this couple or other ultra-Orthodox Jews though, but pray for their salvation and deliverance!  And thank you for your love and prayers for our family as we walk through this season…
“For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for the Savior, 
the L-rd Yeshua HaMashiach!”  Phil. 3:20
“Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.” Matthew 5:11
Wedding Testimony

While at a wedding, I visited with some of the groom’s Orthodox family who were sitting far from the believers.  As I shared with one dear woman, she asked me to sit and explain to her what Messianic Jews really believe.  So of course I did.  She gave me her number and told me to come and visit her.  So of course I will, with G-d’s help.  Then I met another couple from the family who also asked me about the faith.  At one point, the woman got up to walk with me to see the garden.  When I saw her limping, she explained that she’s having surgery soon.  So I asked if I could pray for her, explaining that when we pray in Yeshua’s name, we often see healings.  So she allowed me to pray for her!  I didn’t see an immediate healing but I’m praying she won’t need the surgery.  And she and her husband also gave me their number!  

This was a Kingdom of heaven conference, filled with seasoned believers who reflected Yeshua’s light and glory.  What a joy to celebrate Shabbat in Germany with Holy Spirit filled Catholic priests and Lutheran pastors plus Anabaptists, who were once slaughtered by the former and all of whom at that time despised the likes of me!  

Because of a move of the Spirit, Shabbat was a picture of Heaven – Jew and Gentile one in Messiah!  No one was jealous or trying to be someone they’re not, but we celebrated Messiah and each other’s diversity in a Kingdom way with worship, dancing, teaching and fellowship!  I heard testimonies from many demoninations and for the first time in my life I not only felt loved but also accepted and I loved and accepted them too.  In Wittenberg I found a beauty I’d never seen before in the colorful tapestry called the Body of Messiah.

Come to our Galilee home for an evening of worship, Israeli folk dancing, sharing testimonies & dinner served on our roof with a gorgeous view of the Sea of Galilee, Golan and the Jordan Valley!

Encouraging Testimony from the Living Stones evening:
“One of the reasons we fell in love with Israel was the stories you tell and the Israeli culture you both shared with us.  Doesn’t the government realize what an asset you are for tourism?”

We write L-rd and G-d in this way because it’s a Jewish custom that Carolyn grew up with and it’s done only out of reverence and honor for the name of the L-rd.  Thanks for understanding.
