News Updated February 28, 2009


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.”  


Two thirds of the Jewish people will parish during the days of the great tribulation.   


"It will come about in all the land," Declares the L-rd, "That two parts in it will be cut off and perish; But the third will be left in it.  "And I will bring the third part through the fire, Refine them as silver is refined, And test them as gold is tested.  They will call on My Name, And I will answer them; I will say, 'They are My people,' And they will say, 'The Lord is my G-d.'" [Zechariah 13:8-9 NASU]


It was also given to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them, and authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been slain. If anyone has an ear, let him hear. [Revelation 13:7-9 NASU]


Zechariah 13:8-9 tells us that, once again, the Jewish people will go through another great holocaust in which two thirds of them will die. Only one third will come through. The antichrist will make a covenant with the nation of Israel, but after three and a half years, he's going to break the covenant as he comes to Jerusalem and declares that he is god, and seeks to show that he is god, and demands to be worshiped as god. And the faithful remnant at that time will flee to the wilderness. The antichrist will then seek to destroy all of the Jews that remain in the land, and two thirds of them will be destroyed; one third shall escape.

The Jewish people are going to go through the fire of persecution once again in this last seven years. This time is known in the scripture as the time of Jacob's trouble, we who are in Christ call it the Great Tribulation.

These people are my beloved kinsman, my family and friends.  Romans Chapters nine and ten illustrate my feelings about the remnant of Israel.


We must bring the Good news to as many as possible so they can be entered into the Lambs book of life.  The more who come to faith in Mashiach Yeshua, the less who pariah in the Great Tribulation.  The less who come to Yeshua, the more who parish.  If they come to faith now they will be with us in the clouds, when the L-rd comes to meet us in the air (1 Thessalonians 4:15-18).


Now at that time Michael, the great prince who stands guard over the sons of your people, will arise. And there will be a time of distress such as never occurred since there was a nation until that time; and at that time your people, everyone who is found written in the book, will be rescued. [Daniel 12:1 NASU]


And the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released, so that they would kill a third of mankind. [Revelation 9:15 NASU]


Our job is to bring light and life in Mashiach Yeshua to the lost.  We must work hard because the time could be short. 


Do you not say, 'There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest. [John 4:35  NASU]


Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. [Matt 28:19-20 KJV]


Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. [Mark 16:15 KJV]


Don’t hide your light under a basket.  Tell someone the Good News of Salvation in Mashiach Yeshua today.  Join us in our mission to reach the remnant of Israel with the Truth about their, and our, True Messiah.


  Good News - New Works In The Making:


Bless the L-rd your G-d forever and ever!  Blessed be Your glorious name, which is exalted above all blessing and praise!  You alone are the L-rd; You have made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth and everything on it, the seas and all that is in them, and You preserve them all.  The host of heaven worships You.  [Nehemiah 9:5-6 NKJV]


We pray that all is well with you.  G-d is so good.  Be healthy, be safe, be blessed, be found in Yeshua Ha'Mashiach. [Ref: Philippians 3:7-11]


We welcome all the new members to the Southern Baptist messianic Fellowship.  We look forward to serving the L-rd together.

The SBMF Annual Meetings


There is some SBMF news that you need to know about.  The SBMF Annual meeting is coming to Louisville, Kentucky this June.  We have worked hard to bring you a wonderful time of praise, prayer, worship and teaching.


Click here to see the SBMF Annual Meeting News For June 2009


When you look at this page you will find the schedule of events and information about the event.  We have the speakers and the worship leader listed for you to check out.  The Southern Baptist Convention Executive Board is so gracious in supplying us with meeting rooms for this three day event.  We praise the name of Yeshua for bringing such wonderful saints into our lives.


The SBMF Booth Project


We have run into a snag for the booth project for this year’s SBC Annual Meeting.  After several conversations with representatives from the North American Mission Board, we will not be able to have a booth on the exhibit floor of the Annual Meeting this year.  The North American Mission Board is giving permission for only two ministries to have booth at the Annual Meetings this year.   Sadly our SBMF was not one of those ministries.


We understand how this is a disappointing piece of news.  The booth last year was so successful that it surpassed our expectations.  The L-rd blessed our ministry service at our booth last year. 


We had an average of seven serving-ones in the booth all the time during the convention.  There was only a small time where we were all not speaking to someone.  The best thing about our booth project is that we were able to let some of our SBC brothers and sisters know that the SBMF exists as a ministry of Jewish evangelism inside the Southern Baptist Convention.  Only a few of the brothers and sisters that we spoke to had any knowledge about the SBMF.  Many SBC saints came to our booth with questions about ministering Christ to the Jewish people in their communities and the Jewish people that a family member has married.  Most of all we were able to pray with numerous saints who are serving the L-rd where they live and work.  Many of them were going through tribulations.  We had the ability to pray with them, right there on the exhibit floor, in and by our booth.


It is sad that we will not have a presence again at the Annual Meeting exhibit hall this year.  We pray that people don’t think that we are no longer around from not seeing us there.  We need to find other ways to advertize the SBMF and it’s ministries to our Southern Baptist brothers and sisters.  The past few years there has been such a wonderful blessing of meeting new SBC saints, helping new congregations get started as new works in Jewish evangelism and help missionaries get trained up to serve in the mission fields.  We need the help of our SBC brothers and sisters to step up the effort to bring the Good News of Salvation in Yeshua to the Jewish people here in the USA and abroad.


Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. [John 4:35 KJV]


We would also like to help our SBC brothers and sisters bring the Good News to the Jewish people in their communities.  Please pray about ways to let our brothers and sisters in the SBC know who we are and how we can help.


For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.  For the body is not one member, but many. [1 Cor 12:13-14 KJV]


I believe that we will all find out that there many more Jewish people right here in the USA than all the statistics illustrate.  Of all the people groups in the USA and North America, the Jewish people are not being told the Good News like many others.  We need help and we need workers.  As the L-rd’s remnant the Jewish people group is one that we need to bring the Good News of Salvation by their Jewish Messiah Yeshua.  


For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.  For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. [Rom 1:16-17 KJV]


Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. [Matt 28:19-20 KJV]


Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. [Mark 16:15 KJV]


We can’t do this alone we need the help of the saints.  The SBMF needs to grow so we can impact the lost in this people group. 


Please take a look at the ministries that are active in the SBMF at this time.  Click on this link:

I am one of those SBMF members who has family members who are lost and perishing.  My prayer is that we Southern Baptists proactively engage telling the Jewish people right here in the USA about the gift of Salvation in Mashiach Yeshua. 


I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Ghost, 2 That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart.  3 For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh: 4 Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; 5 Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.  [Rom 9:1-5 KJV]


Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.  [Rom 10:1] KJV

News from Amy Downey at Tzedakah Ministries -- "To Equip His Church to Reach His People"


The purpose of Tzedakah Ministries can be found in its name -- Tzedakah -- which in Hebrew means "righteousness." However, Tzedakah means so much more. As the Holman Bible Dictionary explains, “.... righteousness is the fulfillment of the terms of a covenant between God and humanity or between humans in the full range of human relationships.”


Tzedakah Ministries has a burden to see the Jewish people restored to a righteous covenant relationship with Him -- one that is only possible through Messiah Jesus.


Please take a look at their web pages for further resources and information


Take a look at her web site “Mystery Solved with Messiah Jesus is an apologetic discussion aspect of Tzedakah Ministries.”

From Press Release Central:

Gathering VI unites Christians, Jews for common cause

On Tuesday, March 3, Jews and Christians from throughout the Kansas City metropolitan area will unite for The Gathering, a citywide celebration of hope and a time of prayer for the peace of Jerusalem. The Gathering will be held at 7 p.m. at First Baptist Raytown, located at 10500 E. 350 Highway in Raytown, MO. The Gathering is free and open to the public.

This is the sixth year of The Gathering. This event not only represents a continued strengthening of relationships between the Jewish and Christian communities in Kansas City, but also embodies a united call for peace in Israel.

“The Christian and Jewish communities of Greater Kansas City are shining examples as they momentarily lay down their differences, embrace their commonalities, and unite for a common cause – peace in Jerusalem,” said Paul Brooks, Senior Pastor of First Baptist Raytown.

Brooks is co-chairperson of The Gathering, along with Rabbi Alan Cohen, Director of Interreligious Affairs, Jewish Community Relations Bureau/American Jewish Committee

This year’s Gathering VI will take participants on A Journey From Darkness to Light. The program will recognize Holocaust survivors and celebrate Israel’s 60th anniversary. The program will include children and adult choirs from both the Jewish and Christian communities, prayers for peace and a performance by Mah Tovu, a high-energy Jewish rock ‘n’ roll band, whose dynamic and moving performances have gained a loyal and enthusiastic following across the country. Their fresh and exciting contemporary Jewish music includes original songs as they use rock ‘n’ roll as a means of teaching Jewish history, Hebrew, Jewish values and more. Their music entertains and educates, informs and inspires.

“The Jewish and Christian communities have built a wonderful bridge to understanding. Much of this has come from our work together on The Gathering as we pray for the peace of Jerusalem. This event is intended to remind us that even in dark moments, we can find light and reason to rejoice together,” stated Rabbi Cohen. “Israel is the spark of light and through our shared faiths and voices raised in prayer we help disseminate that light to the world.”

The Gathering is sponsored by a diverse group of organizations and agencies, and supported by over 100 individual churches and synagogues.

Ministry news from Shalom Ministries, Detroit. GA.


As the New Year gets under way, Donna and I want to thank you for your ongoing support for Jewish evangelism and bring you up to date on the exciting things that God has in store for Shalom Ministry in 2009.


We are working very hard to expand our speaking ministry this year, and we appreciate any assistance or leads you can provide to help us book speaking engagements at Sunday Schools, weekly Bible studies and Sunday morning worship services.


Earlier this month, I was guest speaker for a Sunday worship service at Greater Future MBC in Detroit . With me was our very talented Sar Shalom worship leader Toni Harkonen, who received a fabulous response from the congregation for her solo. After our presentation, Pastor Leon Weir said the Holy Spirit had touched his heart, and he promised from the pulpit to support Shalom Ministry. We are looking forward to a great relationship with the members of Greater Future MBC as they join us in our efforts to bridge the gap between the Messianic Community and the Black Church . Please keep Pastor Weir and his congregation in your prayers.


Next week, I will be conducting a class on Jewish evangelism for African American pastors and ministers at the Oakland County Ministerial School . The class will offer insight into why the Black Church should be involved in bringing the gospel to the Jewish community and encourage ministers to look at scriptures from a Jewish perspective. Please pray for this class, which will be held on Monday and Tuesday, January 26 and 27.


We’re currently planning our next visit to the Holocaust Memorial Center in Farmington Hills on Thursday, April 26, from 2 to 4 p.m. We expect a group of more than 100 of our supporters, pastors and members of various local churches to join us. Afterwards, we will hold a short prayer service for the staff and holocaust survivors who lead the tour. Although there is no charge for the tour, donations to the Holocaust Memorial Center are encouraged.


Chauvarah our support group for Messianic Jewish couples is going strong. We’ve made phenomenal progress in this discipleship program, as our “a gathering of friends” grows closer to the Lord and to each other. God is teaching us to address the special needs of Messianic Jewish believers, especially with regard to how their unbelieving Jewish families react to their faith. Maintaining a Jewish identity while embracing Christianity is just one of the many unique challenges facing the couples in our group. Please make Chauvarah a high priority on your prayer list.


An encouraging by-product of our Chauvarah ministry has been the chance to build relationships with family members of the couples. This has opened the door to many witnessing opportunities, including the deathbed salvation of one of the parents. It is our goal to expand this outreach and put together an additional support group for unbelieving family members of Messianic Jews.


Please pray for our continued success in reaching out to the Jewish community. Please ask the Lord to reveal Himself to Elaine, a Jewish lady whose husband Harry went home to be with the Lord a few weeks ago. We had the honor of standing with Elaine during Harry’s passing, and it is our desire to see her come to the Lord along with her children and grandchildren. We will continue to share and interact with this very special Jewish family in the days ahead.


Please join us as we pray for Moe and Diana, another senior Jewish couple with whom we’ve been sharing the Good News; and please pray for the salvation of their granddaughter Rebecca.


Remember to save the date, Friday, May 29, for the Shalom Ministry Annual Dessert Reception at Bloomfield Hills Baptist Church . This will be an exciting program featuring WMUZ talk show host Bob Dutko as keynote speaker, a stirring ministry presentation, and inspiring music by Congregation SAR Shalom’s gifted praise and worship team.


We are grateful for your prayers and financial support in the effort to reach Jews and Gentiles for Yeshua. May God bless you richly for your faithfulness in giving?


Yours in Messiah’s service,


John and Donna Denson

PRAISE HIS NAME!-God bless you and your family! Thank you for supporting our ministry. Please pray for BOLDED newsletter items and our MINISTRY in general. COURT CASE (wrongly cited for banner in front of the Jewish Center) on Feb 26. MINISTRY trip to Phoenix, AZ from Feb 27 to Mar 6. RAHEL LANDRUM (JFJ Missionary/Australia) as she gives a presentation (ISRAEL JFJ OUTREACH) in my home on Mar 7. Please pray for our PURIM PARTY OUTREACH also on Mar 7. MINISTRY TABLE at the JOHNSON FERRY BAPTIST CHURCH SAMPLE SALE (many Jewish PEOPLE the last time) on Mar 14.

IS THAT MAN JEWISH?-ARLENE PECK (Jewish non-believer, tv show host, syndicated columnist, cousin to Atlanta anti-missionary RICK HALPERN) was in from California. While moving furniture at her DAUGHTER’s house, her SON-IN-LAW pulled up with her GRANDCHILDREN. Her son-in-law and I go way back, he hates my t-shirt and he didn’t know Arlene knows me, so imagine his surprise seeing me in his driveway wearing a “Jesus Loves You” t-shirt! Arlene said her grandchildren wanted to know if I’m Jewish?

IT’S A MIRACLE-Three ISRAELIS and several PEOPLE came to our Valentine’s Outreach! One Israeli called me after he found our Gospel tract in south Florida and recently moved to Atlanta. He claims to be a believer, but really doesn’t have a testimony? Another Israeli (married to Melanie who has been coming over since meeting us at the Sandy Springs Festival) came over with his Israeli friend and don‘t claim to believe (yet).

UNCLE HAROLD PASSED AWAY-Uncle Harold had Amyloidosis (rare blood disease) and in 2001 was given three to five years to live, so his death was expected. I flew to New York for his funeral on a Sunday morning. What a privilege it was to pray over my FAMILY and their FRIENDS. I was not allowed to hold my uncle’s casket because of my belief in Jesus. After we buried him, we went to my Aunt’s house to sit shiva (Jewish mourning ritual). You must wash your hands before entering the house (custom of not bringing in anything from the cemetery). Several of us were sitting around and my cousin’s father-in-law asked his estranged wife if the pendant she was wearing was a cross? It was a clover and she asked why a Jew would wear a cross? I said I believe in Jesus, she asked why and I told them! My mom, brother and I came back Monday for shiva before the airport. My aunt was commissioner of elections for Nassau County, has been called by BILL CLINTON and GARY ACKERMAN (US Congressman) and TOM DINAPOLI (NY Comptroller) were both at the shiva.

IS THAT KOSHER?-My car seat broke, and I was quoted $800 to fix it? The Lord reminded me about GREG, Orthodox Jewish auto mechanic in the Orthodox area. After visiting Greg the first time to look at it, I went to a Kosher restaurant and was asked to leave because a customer made a scene over my “Jesus Loves You” t-shirt. After Greg fixed it for $150, I went to another Kosher restaurant and ran into RYAN, Orthodox Jew I witnessed to for years while he was at Georgia State University and recently shared with on Facebook!

SAVE THE JEWS-RAY (Jewish non-believer married to a Jewish believer) came with me to Johnson Ferry’s CEO Ministry Luncheon. The presentation was very Christian, and Pastor BRYANT WRIGHT concluded with comments for non-believers. Ray seemed to enjoy it! LINDA and I visited three Russian Jewish NON-BELIEVERS. Linda ran into FLORENCE (Jewish non-believer who used to come to our TUESDAY NIGHT BIBLE STUDY FELLOWSHIP), and she joined us too! We were able to share with them, and Florence said she would start coming back on Tuesdays and let me take her to a Messianic CONGREGATION!

“Again I ask: Did they stumble so as to fall beyond recovery? Not at all! Rather, because of their transgression, salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel envious. But if their transgression means riches for the world, and their loss means riches for the Gentiles,
how much greater riches will their fullness bring!”-Romans 11:11-12

GOD SIZED FRUIT!-I am in awe with what God is doing through our “Jesus Loves You” Jewish star t-shirt ministry! Seven years ago I asked God about my t-shirt uniform, and He told me to make a big Jewish star that says Jesus Loves You. People started asking for this shirt, and we have since given away over 18,000 of them to believers in over 60 countries around the world. There is t-shirt testimony after testimony on our website. Last month we had Internet requests from Sri Lanka, Lativa, Lithuania, Ukraine, throughout Russia and the USA.

FROM GAINESVILLE, FLORIDA-Just wanted to let you know, Junior and his wife Debbie wore the shirts (star of David with JESUS) Thursday all day. They came back with story after story of what God did. They were rejoicing because they knew it would be real tough or real wonderful...and God would use it. Just wanted to encourage your heart...come on down and go on campus sometime with them. Love in Christ, Pastor Lonnie

FROM PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA-(this is an e-mail Suzanne sent to one of her friends) My husband and I will be driving to Texas to visit my brother in March. I will be taking JESUS LOVES YOU t-shirts with me and tracts. The t-shirts are from "Jewish Outreach International" ministries--that is Steven B. Kaplan's ministry in Atlanta. The t-shirts are a walking billboard advertising that Yeshua IS the JEWISH Messiah. Each shirt is white printed in the center, front and back with a large blue Magen David with the words "JESUS LOVES YOU." Every time I wear it, a Jewish person stops me to talk. One lady in her 40's was pushing a baby stroller with twins in it (her children) and she said 'YOU'VE GOTTA BE KIDDIN ME!!" It started a good conversation. She was raised Orthodox and left it during college, married late, had twins after age 40 and she said "Just last night I was wondering if we missed it and if He really IS the Messiah? and now I see you here with this shirt! What can you tell me that will show me that He IS our Messiah?" So I took out my ministry card, and wrote down Ps 22, Isaiah 53, Daniel 9:26, Zech 12:10 and gave her a 3 minute synopsis of the verses and why those verses point to Him. As she left me, she said "When I get the twins in bed for their nap I will get my Tanakh down and read these! That's just ONE story I could tell you about what happened while wearing that shirt!

REAL EVANGELISM CONFERENCE-JEWISH OUTREACH INTERNATIONAL was invited to have a ministry table at the BAILEY SMITH REAL EVANGELISM CONFERENCE at FIRST BAPTIST WOODSTOCK. We equipped BELIEVERS with over 500 “Jesus Loves You” t-shirts and many Gospel tracts! Some of the Russian t-shirts went to a TEAM ministering to Russian JEWS in ISRAEL. Some of the Spanish t-shirts went to TEAMS ministering in Guatemala and El Salvador! Our table was across from the Missions Center where a table was set up for their Homeless Ministry in downtown Atlanta. As I sat at our table and looked at the pictures on their display, I noticed SOMEONE in their picture ministering in a “Jesus Loves You” Jewish star t-shirt! There was a MAN at a table near ours promoting a fictional book he had written. It turned out he was a pharmacist, so I happened to ask if he knew RANDY (the Jewish man we minister to) because Randy is also a pharmacist. It turns out Randy used to work for this man when he went on vacation! So I made sure to buy his book, have him write Randy a message and give it to Randy who was utterly shocked!

AFTER THE SUPER BOWL…-I forgot to report while distributing Gospel tracts, in my “Jesus Loves You” Jewish star t-shirt at the Super Bowl in Tampa in January, JESSE JACKSON walked by with his ENTOURAGE! I always pray for Jesse Jackson ever since he made anti-Semitic remarks. The St. Pete Times and The Baptist Press wrote about our evangelistic outreach and mentioned there were Messianic Jews (us)!



Ministry News from our sister in Russia


Our vision is to see Russian Jews gathered into vibrant Messianic congregations being a light to the nations.



  1.  On Monday I had the opportunity to meet with Zoya, a Russian woman who also has a vision and desire to reach out to the Jewish community in Novosibirsk.  I had a great time getting to know her, hearing how God had led her on this path and hearing some of the ministry that she has been doing up to this point.  She has a desire to begin a messianic congregation here.  We will continue to pray about how we might be able to work together.  I am very grateful for this sister that God has provided.
  1.  On Wed. I went prayer walking around an Israeli organization that helps Russian Jews to learn about Israel, Jewish tradition and Hebrew.  They are also involved in helping Jews immigrate to Israel.  Initially my co-worker, Mike and I were just going to prayer walk around the building but then decided to go in and ask about their Hebrew classes.  The people there were very friendly and invited me to try out a Hebrew class there that meets on Sunday mornings.  This is not a very convenient time for me but I will check it out this week and see how things go.  My goal is not so much to learn more Hebrew as to develop some relationships with Russian Jews.  Please pray that God will give me wisdom about being involved in this class (or perhaps one that meets at another time) and that God would open doors for me to meet some members of the Jewish community here.
  1. Thanks for praying for the recovery conference that Andy led last week-end.  He said that it went very well, with over 90 people in attendance.  Please pray that this conference will continue to impact recovery work all over Siberia.
  1. I have been to gym classes twice so far this week.  I can tell them I’m out of shape, as they are hard for me to keep up.  The classes are also much bigger than the groups I was in in Moscow.  But I think that being a part of this gym is going to be very good for me to get into better shape.

Prayer Requests:

  1.  Next week-end I will be attending a 24 hour retreat with some of my co-workers.  We will be doing future planning and looking at our life plans.  Please pray that I will have the time that I need this week to prepare for this retreat and that God will bless our time together.  Also please pray for Dodi and Ariela as they will be on their own for that amount of time.  (I’ll leave them plenty of food and water so I think they will be fine)
  1.  Two of my co-workers, Rachel and Chelsea will be coming over to my house for Shabbat dinner tonight.  This will be my first time to have real guests in my new home.  Please pray that we will have a blessed time together and that I will have time to prepare everything that I want to before they arrive.
  1. Moving to a new place can be a bit lonely at first.  I am very blessed with wonderful team mates who have been so supportive of me but who are also very busy with their lives and ministries.  Please pray that God will bless me with some new Russian friends that I can invest in.  On the same note, please pray that He will help me find a church home.  If I attend Hebrew class on Sunday mornings I may have a limited number of choices of where to attend church.  
  1. I’ve only been back in Novosibirsk for nearly 3 weeks and I’m already tired of the cold weather and snow and ice everywhere.  Even though officially spring begins here on March 1st I really don’t anticipate spring weather for at least another 4-6 weeks.  Please pray that God will give me the grace to accept this weather and adjust to the challenges that it brings, without complaining.

This week’s memory verse for me is Psalm 121:3-4.  I hope that it will encourage you as it has encouraged me.  He will not allow your foot to slip, your protector will not slumber.  Indeed the Protector of Israel does not slumber or sleep.


May God richly bless all that you do this week.  Thanks so much for your prayers.


In the Lamb,


Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. [Matt 28:19-20 KJV]

We are what we eat.  Feast on the Tree of Life.  Be filled with the Light and Life of Yeshua.  Read the Word.

Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.  [Revelation 1:3  NKJV]


Baruch Ha’ba B’Shem Adonai

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the L-rd!  [Ps 118:26 NKJV]


The L-rd bless you, and watch over you; The L-rd make His face shine on you, And be gracious to you;  The L-rd lift up His countenance on you, And give you peace.   [NASU  Numbers 6:24-26]
