Every valley shall be exalted And every mountain and hill brought

The glory of the L-RD shall be revealed, And all flesh shall see it

OUTREACH REPORT – FESTIVAL BERISHEET, OCTOBER 2005
Outstanding! Remarkable! Unbelievable!
adjectives can possibly describe my recent mission trip in Israel!
Thanks to your support and prayers, G-d truly did exceedingly
abundantly above all we could ask or think (Eph.3:20) among these
precious young Israeli lives. The
time of spiritual famine in Israel is ending (Amos 6:11) and a spiritual
harvest is on its way!
doubt we had over 4 hours of sleep on any given night during this trip –
usually on our feet for much of the day – hardly hungry or stopping to eat
because truly “my food was to do the will of Him who sent me”.
G-d protected our health and I
was glad for every waking moment spent in sharing the love of Yeshua with
countless young Israelis, developing friendships with many.
equally important part of my purpose there was connecting with Believers in
the Land, forging friendships for the days to come.
How pure is the Body of believers there!
Their 24/7 ministry at the Chai Shop, serving, singing, sitting,
listening, witnessing to hundreds of youth who came to listen to music or
rest in the shade, was the most beautiful of sights.
We participated in several prayers of salvation – hearing for the
very first time the Good News of forgiveness and eternal life through Yeshua!
How innocent and hungry – looking into the eyes of these sons and
daughters – so open to friendship, to honest discussion, and to caring
hearts. I truly left my heart
– not in San Francisco – but with the Israeli people.
the Chai Shop and large area with our own stage for music, and camping,
sitting, and eating area, the goal of creating an atmosphere of righteousness
and light in the midst of darkness and uncleanness was realized.
Here was a haven, a refuge, a peaceable harbor surrounded by drums and
trance music, drugs and new age booths. Here
I spoke with Harel (his name means “mountain of G-d”) and Avi (“my
father”), with Rachamim (“mercy”) and so many more.
We drank chai tea and spoke of life’s meaning – and of course of
the Messiah Jesus. Harel and I
threw a Frisbee (I come prepared) in the Sea of Galilee, and then spoke
further. I have many email
addresses to follow up on.
times we walked throughout the grounds and engaged people.
A group of four shirtless young men had had an extensive, at times
heated discussion with a couple of the messianic believers at the Book Shop.
Seeing them later, I reinforced the truth of Yeshua, while
complimenting the leader’s courage to seek the dialogue.
episodes stand out. A rock band
with incredible talent played at a nearby new age stage area.
The L-rd had me run into them sitting at a table after midnight as I
was carrying a guitar. As I told
them how much I enjoyed their music, I asked them their name.
“Colitis” was the response. Why?
Because the leader (Dudi) has it!
“But I’m still alive” he said with a kind smile.
I could not contain myself, sharing with him and the rest of the band
about Yeshua, and assuring him that I would pray for his healing.
Afterwards I regretted not praying for him on the spot.
That night I asked G-d to give me another opportunity – and it came
the next day, just before they were leaving!
In the doorway of a loud food area I ran into Dudi - alone – and
asked him if I could pray for him there.
He shared with me that he carried on his neck from his mother a
(mystical) kabalistic medallion blessed by a great rabbi, in hopes for
protection and healing. There in
the midst of a crowd, I prayed in Jesus’ Name for his healing and believe G-d
will do or has already done a miracle in his life and will use him for His
glory – please pray for Dudi, whose name means “my beloved”.
leaving, Clyde, one of the team members, had prayed with a girl for G-d to
reveal Jesus the Messiah to her. Several
minutes later, she returned with a friend, the two of them holding hands
together. “Will you pray for
her, too?” she asked, with desperate, longing eyes.
Dennis and Clyde walked with them to the seashore, and there prayed
with them the prayer of salvation. Tears
ran down her cheeks as heaven rejoiced.
could write so much more – and tell you of the unbelievable, historic
visitation ushered in by Newsboys as they played on the Main Stage for the
first time ever in Israel’s history, taking over the atmosphere with the
anointing of heaven. Or the
soldiers we picked up hitchhiking on our long drive back to the airport; of
the witness and friendship that ensued.
allow me to sum it up and say, “Lift up your eyes and look on the fields
– for they are white (ripe) for harvest” (Jn.4:35).
May we be available to the L-rd to share Him where He has placed us
– to be a light to those around us. This
we will do. But as for me, I
left much of my heart in Israel, with Israel’s youth – and I can’t wait
to return and help build where Christ (Messiah) has yet to be named, with
those who have yet to see, hear, and understand who Jesus really is
My people shall know My name. Therefore
in that day, I am the One who is speaking, ‘Behold Me (here am I)’.”
- Isaiah 52:6
Report From: Pastor Bill Liniewicz for Radio India
Bill is in India. Please be in
prayer for this mission of Yeshua. Baruch HaShem Yeshua. Pray
for the safety of our brother. Photos from the jungle.
note from Pastor Bill
was fun. we took the train to a new church plant in a jungle costal village
of about 3,000 people close to Tuni India. The villagers are all fishermen
(made my message even more applicable. There is a huge Hindu temple there.
I've been teaching during the day at the Calvary Chapel Bible College in
Eluru while driving out to the jungle churches for services every night.
Bringing the message of the "sign of the times" concerning the soon
return of our L-rd Jesus. Even the Muslims and Hindu's are having their eyes
opened with the events taking place around the world. G-d is opening up the
door for a great"last day's" harvest. The people are fascinated
with finding the Bible is a history book that predicts the future.
Wednesday 11/9 we are baptizing over 40 people that have come to the L-rd in
the churches I've been visiting. This will be done here at Pastor's
Abraham's main church in Eluru.
next Thursday 11/10 we leave for Kottayam,
passing through Bangalore on the Kerala Express. We will be speaking this
message at a 3 day "crusade" 11/11 to 11/14. Then we head for
Kottarakara to visit Kerala Theological Seminary for a few days and back to
Chennai 11/17 for a pastors meeting 11/18. Then I fly back to the US 11/19.
"Radio India Ministries" We met with the India
Communication Minister This Week and he (a born again believer and PK
of Abrahams church) is pushing through the governement permits and
recieving backing for building "Radio India" from the fed's
in Dehli. The Communication Minister is selling the concept by asking
us for prorams to air for public health issues, sanitation and child rearing
etc., to teach the people to better themselves along with the gospel
teachings. They like "do not steal" "do not cheat"
"respect your parents" "consult Creator G-d for your life not
things of creation" "Jesus the Way to a fulfilled life" etc.
with programs like Turning Point, Thru The Bible, Unschackled, Word For
If we do well with the first station (I guess that means is the fanatic's

us in setting up stations around the continent WOW. He is opening some
awesome doors. Praise the L-rd please pray for us and visit our web site.
