News - July 22, 2006

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


Good News:


But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in His wings; and you will go forth and skip about like calves from the stall. [Malachi 4:2 NASU]


Baruch HaBah B’Shem Adonai.  Blessed is He Who comes in the Name of the L-rd


I pray that all is well with you all.  G-d is so good.  He is blessing us all the time.



Urgent Prayer Request:


Christian Web Master, SBMF Brother, Craig Talley in Antioch Illinois is seriously ill and he has been out of work as a brick layer for some time.  Craig is a brother who has been helping us and numerous other ministries gain a productive web presence.  Craig's wife Renee has been supporting the family by herself while Craig is on the bench.  The new concern is for Renee’s health as it appears she has a mass of some type in the upper sigmoid colon and we are praying for a swift diagnosis of something treatable and relief from the pain and disability she is suffering. She had spent most of last week at Condell Medical Center and they where unable to directly view the problem so a diet change and a new exploratory will be upcoming.


This family has little or no health insurance.


Please lift them up in your prayers.

And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. [1 Corinthians 12:25-26  NASU]


SBMF News:


We had a wonderful time at the Greensboro Encampment this last June.  The gathering was small but the fellowship was wonderful.  Many of our members were not able to attend as they were on mission trips and doing missionary work.  Several of our members were not able to afford the traveling expenses.  We are sad that some of you missed the meetings.  We pray that you will be able to attend next year in San Antonio, TX.


We welcome the new brothers and sisters who have joined the SBMF.  We also welcome all of the brothers and sisters who are inquiring about SBMF membership.

We are in Northern Illinois July 22.  

A Note From Your President:  Brother Jack is starting a speaking tour.  He will be speaking all over the USA.  Gwenn and I have learned so much from his writings.   We have been reading his teachings on the internet for years.  We have also read articles that have been published in some secular publications.  Soon I will send an email out with a Bio and some sample Omega Letters and other writings for you to review.  If you are interested in having brother Jack come and speak at your congregations, you can contact him directly or contact me.  Here is a chance to bring a teaching to your congregation about how we, as kadoskim found in Yeshua, can help Israel and the people who the Covenants were given.  This is also good teaching on the prophetic importance of the signs of the times.

Please let us know if you are interested in having Jack speak at your congregation.  We will pass your inquiry on to Jack.  Jack and his wife Gayle are now in the Northern Illinois area.

Baruch Ha’ba B’Shem Adonai

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


But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into.  For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will. [Matthew 24:43-44 NASU]



Ministry news from your president: 


Our dear friend Dr. Randy Weiss:            Yesterday (07/19/06) Gwenn and I were both blessed to meet and worship with Dr. Randy Weiss ( TV & Radio Messianic Ministries) at the Harvest Christian Center, in the Uptown area of Chicago, IL.  We attended a small Wednesday night worship meeting together.  This was the second time we have worshiped at this Church, together.  Dr. Weiss spoke about "A little Leaven leavens the whole lump [1 Corinthians 5:6-8].  Dr Weiss told the fellowship that G-d lives you in the midst of persecution and how G-d is your supply when those around you have abandon you.




In the words of Dr. Weiss.  CrossTalk is an internationally syndicated television & radio program. The mission statement says it all: "We are boldly reaching out to change lives with the radical truth our Jewish Savior." The host of CrossTalk is Dr. Randy Weiss. He is a Jewish believer in Jesus who has been proclaiming this message since his conversion in early 1973. Tune in weekly to enjoy teaching, humor, singing, and sharing from a Jewish man's perspective. Randy teaches about the Jewish origins of the Christian faith and helps the Church be sensitized to Jewish issues. He is committed to biblical clarity, historical accuracy, and creative techniques for presenting the Gospel message to the mass media.”  


Dr. Weiss and his wife stopped at our house, on the way to Indiana from Montana and we went together to a Church in the heart of Chicago’s Uptown Area.  The Harvest Christian Center Is located at 4554 N. Broadway, Ste 221, Chicago IL 60640.  This congregation is on fire for the L-rd and they love the Jewish people.


We have been actively working with Dr. Weiss this past year to help lead new believers into the Kingdom of Heaven.  Please pray for Dr. Weiss and the Kingdom work of CrossTalk Ministries.  Dr. Randy has been working to produce video illustrations of the Gospel in several languages.  His goal is to tell as many people about Yeshua as he can, in their language and tongues.


We are working with Dr. Weiss ( to get the SBMF a presence on the numerous Christian television networks so that more brothers and sisters will know who we are, how we can help them and how they can help us.


CrossTalk Holy Land Tours will be taking a tour to Israel on October 30,2006.  This is a time when Israel needs our support.  We support Israel and their need for tourist visitation.  We also think that this is a way to be blessed by walking where our L-rd and Savior walked.

Please pray for Randy and the work he is working for the Kingdom.

I believe you will be deeply edified by some of the recent messages. Last week was on the inseperable marriage between the Holy Spirit and the Word of God - how we need both equally.  Neh.8 & Lk.11 among others.  We also spent time addressing Israel, Lebanon, & Syria in the Scriptures.  The week prior was on the normal state of war for the follower of Yeshua - the pattern of victories and attacks - and how we win.  We also looked at the future peaceful conditions when Yeshua returns.  I Kg.19 & I Jn.5:4 among others.

Rav Ahavah b'Yeshua (much love in Jesus),

Rabbi Ken Alpren 

Shalom u'vrachot (peace & blessings),
