Message Sent August 8th, 2005 from Rabbi Edwin Farrar

I have exiting news and a great prayer request. I have a meeting out at the synagogue tomorrow evening at 5PM with a reporter from the Jewish Chronicle. He is coming out to take some pictures and ask questions for a possible article. This may be a huge and critical thing for us in reaching the KC Jewish community. He may or may not run the article; however, the fact that he is driving all the way out there is very encouraging.

Please lift this up in your prayers that God be glorified and His will be done. If you are able to be in prayer for us tomorrow at 5PM, I would really appreciate it your prayer covering. I need and desire to have the Holy Spirit speak to the reporter instead of myself.


Message Sent August 11th, 2005 from Rabbi Edwin Farrar

I wanted to let you know how the interview went. It went very well. The reporter was very interested in the fact we are affiliated with the SBC. He was very surprised the Southern Baptist Christians did not have a problem with us wearing tzitzits, prayer shawls, eating kosher, and teach the Torah to people. He was also very surprised to find out about the Southern Baptist Messianic Fellowship. I would not be surprised if he ends up doing a follow-up piece on the SBMF.


Cari and I are very excited and looking forward to reading the article. The reporter himself, did not seem anti-messianic, but that could just be his way of attempting to put us at ease. Still we are very hopeful the article may spur interest in the Jewish Community and help us become included instead of excluded.


Thank you all for you prayers. I know it made the difference. Once we get the article and read over it, I will send out another email.

Shalom; Rabbi Edwin Farrar  


Paramedics will turn to a victim's cell phone for clues to that person's identity. You can make their job much easier with a simple idea that they are trying to get everyone to adopt: ICE.

 ICE stands for In Case of Emergency. If you add an entry in the contacts list in your cell phone under ICE, with the name and phone #. of the person that the emergency services should call on your behalf, you can save them a lot of time and have your loved ones
contacted quickly.

 It only takes a few moments of your time to do.

 Paramedics know what ICE means and they look for it immediately.

 ICE your cell phone NOW!



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]
