Israel: Past, Present & Future, Pt 1, Pt 2, & Pt 3 – How I Became Involved With Israel – Derek Prince

(Love For His People Editor’s Note: I had the honor and privilege of working with Derek Prince Ministries on two occasions. From 1987-1990 in Fort Lauderdale, Flordia, and then again from 2000-2005 (thank you, David Selby!) in Charlotte, North Carolina. I was the Director of Operations and Finances during those years. In my opinion, Derek is the best Bible teacher I have ever met, to this day.)
