Greetings to you, our friends of Love For His People ministry.
We are moving on in our Lord’s purposes, encouraged even as we pray harder for strength and needing to know even more of His timing in all things. And then to get it all done. Are you still doing it?
With each passing day, month, year, decade, we each have the choice to continue on or to quit. By His grace and mercy, I hope you are continuing on. It sure is a challenge sometimes!
What I wrote in my most recent Now Think On This message an hour ago, after hearing the word from the Lord on my way to work this morning, I hope you will read and find hope in. It was a word for me, and maybe for you too.

As believers, who really care about our country, our children, and our grandchildren, I hope you aren’t one who dismisses activity in our national elections. Be informed. Get involved. And vote when the time comes. No longer can we sit by and let the evil forces take over and destroy what the Lord has given us – the freedom and means to do His will.
Being this is a “news” letter, here are some updates.
Even without asking, three guys have already said they wanted to come on our next fall 2020 “Ahava Adventure – Men Only” trip to Israel. Looks like I may have to get a bigger rental van if others do too! So let me know. And just maybe one of our women board members will have one for the ladies. Any interest?
With the year not quite yet gone, on the Gregorian calendar at least, we have already seen the doubling of the Love For His People ministry income over last year’s total. Please be a part of sharing what you have with the ones in Israel who need our ongoing monthly financial support.
You can easily give now: Donate to bless. For those who want specifics, I can give you the names and amounts for each. We are transparent. Our annual financial report is also always on our website. Annual Financial Report
Be blessed in your blessing. I hope you are seeking Him and finding Him. Jesus is the Way. The Only way. Keep sharing the love of the Lord, and see love breakthrough in ones you never thought it would, even among those near you.
Ahava and shalom,

P.S. Being a numbers guy, it is always encouraging when 48% of you open (and read) these newsletters. The “normal open rate” for emails these days is much lower, so that speaks of the interest and the benefit you find in them. Thanks!
P.S.S. YouTube has proven that most of us like watching videos, so I recorded 65 short ones as we walked (literally over 51 miles!) around Israel. You can “Walk With Me” and see Netanya, Haifa, Tiberias, the Golan, Ein Gedi, where Jesus (Yeshua) was baptized, Bethlehem, and Jerusalem! So, click here, and come on, walk with me…
If you know us already you can skip this part. Otherwise, here we are! Love For His People – moving forward into our 10th year with you. For them.
Over 9 years ago on June 30, 2010, Steve Martin left the third ministry he had worked for in the past 24 years in order to providentially start a new ministry, co-founded by my good wife Laurie. The primary purpose is to bless our friends the Jews of Israel, and specifically the believers within the nation – those who have come to acknowledge that Yeshua is the Messiah, HaMashiach.
As non-Jews, Gentiles, goyim, Christian Zionists (whatever label we have!), we began the organization to stand strong for the Jewish state of Israel, Yisrael – the Land of Israel. In this world, with nations continually becoming more anti-Semitic daily, including our own USA, we have been called, as the prophetic word in 2004 was spoken over us, as a “scepter for Israel.”
Now Think On This
All in…even in my frailty. by Steve Martin
“Yes, I am well pleased with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions and difficulties endured on behalf of the Messiah; for it is when I am weak that I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:10, Complete Jewish Bible
A good friend and co-worker at a Charlotte, North Carolina ministry told me once, or maybe even twice or more, way back in 2005 just before he was about ready to retire, for his 2nd time at age 75, that “Getting old is a ____.”
Being still rather a young man at 51 years of age then, I didn’t completely understand what he was saying. And though a Christian, I can’t repeat what he said, but I have gained further understanding in these past 14 years since his comment. (You can fill in the blank if you have thought, or spoken, something of the same.)
My knees are hurting. My stomach is bulging and aches from time to time with acid reflex and whatever. And I won’t even give birth soon as my daughter recently did.
My sleep is fleeting too, as may be “Et tu, Brute?” is relatable to you? (A statement said even further back than 14 years.) The once 10 pm time for bed has moved up now to the 8:30 pm time. Nothing new about that. Everyone who knows me knows already. Though I do like the 3:30 am wakeup times the Lord gives me, I still am up a few times between the “lay me down to sleep” and the “Let’s get up and get going!” daily routine.
And where does the time go? Blink twice and a new year is about ready to land.As you and I get older, you too may be asking the Lord what I often do, “Why couldn’t I do what I am now able to do, but 40 years ago, when I really wanted and thought I could and should, do it?” Now I am physically a bit more worn out than then, so what happened? Did I miss the turn somewhere? Or the turn missed me?

Be Encouraged. Book by Steve Martin
Be encouraged in your daily walk with God, for when it is all said and done, our God wins! God the Father, Jesus Christ His Son, and God the Holy Spirit – the Three in One – rule from their heavenly throne.
Together they are daily involved in the lives of men, women, and children in all the nations. The establishment of their kingdom here on earth is taking place. And one day Jesus, Yeshua HaMashiach, will set up His earthly throne in Jerusalem, Israel, the place where He left from in 33 AD, promising to return to that same place.
Knowing the last chapter recorded in the end of the Book, the Word of God, the Bible, as revealed to John the Apostle, we know that from the beginning in Genesis, to that ending chapter in Revelation, the Lord has been preparing His people and bringing about His plans and purposes. Both believing Jews and Gentiles are seeing His work and getting involved.
These messages are to encourage you, included among them I trust, in your walk with the Living God of Israel.
