News Updated February 20, 2006

Shalom to all.   “The grace of the Adonai Yeshua Ha'Mashiach, and the love of Elohim, and the fellowship of the Ruach HaKodesh, be with you all.”

  Good News - Encampment is Coming in June:

I thank my God, making mention of you always in my prayers, hearing of your love and faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints, that the sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgment of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. [Philem 6 NKJV]

Baruch Ha'bah B’Shem Adonai.  [Psalms 118:26]

Blessed is He Who comes in the Name of the L-rd. [Matthew 23:29]


Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.   [Hebrews 10:23-25]

We pray that all is well with you.  G-d is so good.  He is blessing us all the time. Be blessed, be healthy, be found in Him.

SBMF Annual Meeting News From Your President And Servant

Prepare for the SBMF Annual Meeting.

SBC Housing Bureau c/o GACVB

317 S. Greene Street, Greensboro, NC. 27401, United States

Plans for the meetings:

We are still working on child care for the times that we have meetings.  There are many of you who would like to attend and need help with the children.  There are two other major groups meeting when we meet.  There is childcare for them so I pray that they will let us join them with our children.   Please let me know if you have childcare needs for these meetings.

As of this date we are scheduled to meet Saturday for Yeshiva and Business meetings.  We are looking for a Messianic Congregation in the area to help us with worship music and a place to meet on Erev Shabbat for corporate worship.  If you know of a congregation in the Greensboro, NC area please contact me via e-mail.  We are contacting the local associations in the Greensboro area in hopes to find a congregation who will give us hospitality for Friday evening Erev Shabbat celebration.

The dates for our meetings are scheduled for June 9th & 10th 2006.  Many of the brothers and sisters wish to attend the SBC Pastors Conference that starts Sunday evening.  We may have Davidic Worship Dance training on Sunday afternoon.  

We are on the move.  G-d has blessed us with two wonderful speakers.  Dr. Ed Stetzer from NAMB and Sam Nadler from Word of Messiah Ministries.  Baruch HaShem Yeshua.



Dr. Stetzer (NAMB) will be speaking on an area where he has a great deal of experience.  He will teach Effective Planting of Successful New Works.  Dr Stetzer will surprise us with a Biblical teaching, we will find useful.  I expect that he will also give us a great deal of information how we can work closer with NAMB.



NAMB - Director of Research, Missiologist - coordinate and oversee mission research of the North American culture and churches for greater evangelistic and church planting effectiveness.  Partner Enlistment Manager and Manager of Strategic Networks.  Directed the Nehemiah Project and partnerships with colleges, seminaries, and institutions.   Led the Nehemiah Project to increase church planter deployments to 122 in 2003.  Created video classes for Introduction to Church Planting classes.   Wrote scholarly articles to support the church planting program.  1998-2001 Nehemiah Project Professor.  Church Planter and Teaching Pastor.



Sam Nadler will be teaching:  Messianic Apologetics, a defense not of His Messiahship, but of a balanced messianic approach, especially as to congregation planting. This includes the necessity of the Gentile Believers in the messianic movement.


Sam is a Jewish believer in Jesus who  has a passion to communicate the Good News to his people, and to see discipleship established in Jewish communities around the world.  Raised in New York City according to Jewish tradition, Sam hungered for what the Messiah of Israel alone can give: atonement and new life.  After finding Yeshua (Jesus) as his Messiah, Sam has been in full-time service for Him since the early 70's.  First as a leader with Jews for Jesus, he established their New York City ministry. Later as President of Chosen People Ministries, he established international outreach, discipleship programs, congregational planting and leadership development in Israel, the Ukraine, Germany, South America, Canada as well as the United States.  As president of Word of Messiah Ministries, Sam is continuing to develop leaders & outreach to make a world-wide impact for the Gospel among his Jewish People.


We are praying that we can have a time of Davidic Dance training.  Connie Saffel has told us that she would like to bring some dance training into the meeting.  We are attempting to find the time and a location to meet early on Sunday afternoon the 11th.


The Shabbat Yeshiva (June 10th) tentative training and meeting schedule:

Ed Stetzer                  8:00AM to 10:00AM

Sam Nadler               10:00AM to 1200PM

Lunch                          12:00PM to 1:00PM

Sam Nadler               1:00PM. to 5:00PM

Dinner                         5:30PM to 7:00PM

Business Meeting      7:00PM to 9:00PM


We are looking forward to our coming together in praise, fellowship and learning. Remember Hebrews 10:23-25


We are still in prayer for a volunteer to lead us in music Worship, Friday evening and Saturday.


Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. [James 5:16  NASU]


We alone are not righteous.  Our righteousness is found only in our L-rd and Savior Yeshua Ha’Mashiach (Jesus the Messiah).  As we are found in Him, in faith, we are found in His righteousness.


"And all things you ask in prayer , believing, you will receive." [Matt 21:22  NASU]

We are looking forward to seeing you at the 2006 SBMF Annual Meetings.  Unless we hear the shofar sound and a call from above, "Come up here".

Outreach News from Rabbi Ken Alpren at Kol Dodi  


The Stone of Support


“Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen.  He named it Ebenezer, saying, ‘Thus far has the Lord helped us.’”  - I Sam.7:12


The Jewish people had turned back to the Lord in repentance.  As Samuel was leading them in a sacrificial service, the Philistines attacked.  In a miraculous display of God’s creative power (and humor?), the Lord answered Samuel’s intercessory cry by producing loud thunder which sent the Philistines fleeing!  This Divine intervention is recalled in the prayers recited during the yomim noraim (days of awe between Rosh ha Shannah & Yom Kippur), “He who answered Samuel at Mizpah, may He answer us.” 


As a reminder of God’s act of mercy, Samuel erected a monument and named it “Eh-ven ha-Ah-zer,” the Stone of Support, or Rock of Help, saying, ‘You’ve been faithful to help us until this point, Lord – we can trust You to help us in the future as well.’ 


I personally thank God for how He has been a Rock of Help to me during this time of my father’s death.  He has ministered to me through His people with words of hope and comfort; He has ministered to me by His Spirit through the prayers of many; He has ministered to me through His Word and promises (Acts 20:32; Dan.10:19).  Truly the Lord’s grace and strength are manifested through His Body; how grateful I am for my family and for our spiritual family – their love and compassion.  I have received hope and confidence in God’s mercy, and its mystery (Rom.11:25, 30-32). 


Our prayers were heard, and will be heard (Is.58:9; Jn.11:42).  Do not lose hope in God’s great mercy and faithfulness (Ps.108:4; Lam.3:23).  If our hearts condemn us, God is greater than our hearts, and knows everything; we don’t (I Jn.3:20)!  God has been faithful to help us until now – will He not continue to be in the future?  Let us erect an “even ha-azer”, a Stone of Support in our hearts to remind us of His infinite love and everlasting mercy.
