We are so blessed by the reception from Australians as we bring worship and testimonies from Zion.
The times of worship have been deeper than ever here Down Under and we are so grateful for the many meetings with people who were in need of healing with whom we could minister to personally. We were especially blessed to be able to minister in several churches with many Aboriginal believers and places where the people had never had a message about Israel before. Divine appointments abound and we praise the L-rd that we can be in the right place in the right time.
At the sea we met a woman who said, “I grew up in a strict church so I don’t follow Jesus now.” After sharing Yeshua we were delighted at how open she was. We left her with plenty of joy and truth to ponder.
While sharing with another woman, she said she’s a Christian but has a hard time believing the Bible and doesn’t have a personal relationship with Yeshua. We spoke with loving concern and pray she’ll take to heart what we said about knowing Yeshua and being able to hear His voice. So many lost, so little time…
Praise G-d for these testimonies after several meetings:
“After last night’s meeting, I experienced a breakthrough in an area of my life where I had blockage!”
“Over the years I confess I lost interest and became complacent about Israel but tonight after this meeting, I caught the fire and will pray for Israel every day now!”
I will give thanks to You, O L-rd, among the nations and
I will sing praises to Your Name. 2 Samuel 22:50
The Continuing Saga with the MOI, Ministry of Interior
Three times over the past few years prescheduled dates in court were canceled the night before by the MOI. They claimed that they needed more time to build their case against our family, particularly against our son Ariel. Never once has the MOI stated why they will not grant Ariel’s wife citizenship. Although not Jewish, Shayla is married to an Israeli Jew and therefore is entitled to full citizenship. The MOI also won’t give a reason as to why they are pursuing the removal of our citizenship as Israelis.
But at last the judge told the MOI, “No more delays!”
So on June 7 Ariel and Shayla went to court in Jerusalem. The lawyer Shira, from Calev Myer’s law office, said she was surprised and pleased, as she had never been previously given the opportunity in similar cases to present as much evidence as she did. Shira explained the recent guidelines established by the Vice-Attorney General, which supposedly overseas the MOI policies, which states that if you made Aliyah more than ten years ago, your citizenship may never be removed. The MOI attorney insisted on viewing evidence of this as she had never heard this before and neither had the judge! So right there in court, Shira presented this guideline and another related one that gave even more weight to their case. The judge told the MOI lawyer that Ariel’s case seems to be very strong so what will you do about this? The answer given was that the MOI needs more time. The judge said he wouldn’t wait for them but instead he’d establish guidelines to move forward, so hopefully an end is in sight!
But is it really? Will we, Israeli followers of Messiah ever be completely accepted?
While speaking with Ariel after the court date, Richard asked him if he ever worries about this. Ariel replied no and we agreed that we also never worry about this. It’s like the peace of G-d has covered our family through this season and we know that the prayers of you, the saints, have much to do with this!
Normally in a court case the defendant doesn’t speak. But Ariel asked to address the judge and gave him the following Scripture. It was definitely a good word in season! Hopefully a ruling will come soon but meanwhile we will continue to share the love of our Messiah Yeshua with the lost. It’s a great privilege and a calling on our lives from the Holy One of Israel!
For the L-rd will not abandon His people, nor will He forsake His inheritance.
For judgment will again be righteous and all the upright in heart will follow it.
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!
Thank you for praying for these young men and other young Israeli believers whom we have the honor of supporting in ministry in Zion through the Yeshua Project.

Thank you for your love and prayers as we continue to bring worship and the Word out of Zion to Australia for another month. We pray for G-d’s presence in your midst, His peace in your hearts, His protection to cover you, His provision to support you and His anointing to increase in your lives!
