The SBMF Annual Meeting Music Worship
Leader will be:
Hebraic Roots Teacher
Sister Alicia Smith will lead us in music
worship this year at our Southern Baptist Messianic Fellowship Annual
meetings. Alicia is a
Messianic Psalmist, singer, songwriter. She
serves as a worship leader at Rockford Area Messianic Havurah, 1894
Daimler Rd. Rockford, IL. 61112. Web
page is located at www.rockfordmessianic.com
Alicia’s music is heard on many of the
radio stations in Israel, the USA and all over the world.
Some of the Radio stations are Voice of Jerusalem, Moody
Broadcasting Network, Kol Ha’Yeshuah, Heart of Israel, One in Messiah
and several other Christian radio networks.
We have heard
her on Sirius.
Alicia will be leading us in
music worship this year. I would like to mention that one of
Alicia's gifts is the telling of the story, the Hadassah. The
Character of Hadassah the Storyteller is brought to life by
Messianic Jewish singer/songwriter Alicia Smith. This “living history”
program is set in Biblical times surrounding the events of Jesus’
earthly ministry and shortly after his death and resurrection.
Smith is a Spirit filled Messianic Jewish singer/songwriter with a love
for G-d and sharing His Word and the music that He has blessed her with.
Born Alicia Rivera on December 10, 1956 in San Jose, California, she
learned to love music at an early age. Having been born without a right
hip-socket due to a birth defect, Alicia's early years were difficult
because of surgical corrections and arthritic pain.
Due to physical limitations, Alicia was drawn to a form of
expression that knew no such limitations: Music. Her gifting in
this area brought much recognition, but as she states, “What is it all
“wandering in the desert” for a season, the L-rd revealed Himself to
Alicia in a profound way and called this Prodigal Daughter of Zion into an
intimate relationship with her Messiah, Yeshua (Jesus) and to fulfill the
calling of her Levitical heritage. She
was now appointed to sing for the King.
that day in October of 1995, G-d has been “sitting as a refiner and
purifier of silver” in her life and has poured out songs for His worship
and praise numbering over 100. Alicia
has been the Worship Leader at Temple Shalom Yisrael Messianic Jewish
Congregation for five years and now through Humble Heart Ministries,
shares teaching, testimony and the music which the L-rd has given her in
churches, messianic congregations and fellowships across the nation.
Her heart’s desire is that all would come into a deep and
intimate relationship with the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob through the
Hope of Israel, Messiah Yeshua and know the love that G-d has for His
has recorded two solo CD’s to date: “Humble
Heart” and “Shabbat – A Taste of Heaven”.
recently attended the Gospel Music Association’s “Music In The
Rockies” and was awarded an official endorsement from CMP – Christian
Music Presenters and has appeared in many venues across the nation as well
as television, radio, the “On The Waterfront” festival in Rockford, IL
and at the “Pageant of Peace” Christmas concert on the Ellipse in
front of the White House at Washington, DC.
Alicia resides northwest of Chicago
with her husband and son.

For Our Meeting Room
the past the SBMF meeting rooms have been a wee bit hard to find.
The problem was the enormous size of the convention centers and the
numerous numbers of rooms for each SBC event. Not This
Year. This year we were able to locate our room using a map provided
by the Kentucky Exposition
Center web site. This year we are publishing
the maps to help direct you to our
meetings. Below are two maps that will help you find our meeting

Prayer Requests From Your
SBMF President: Ric Worshill
pray about attending our time of worship to the L-rd in Louisville,
Kentucky this June. Bo hal'alu Adonai imanu.
continue to pray for your Executive Board as we work with the North
American Mission Board, to make your SBMF
more resourceful to you in your ministries.
want to thank the SBC Executive Committee, Convention Relations Staff as they help
us with arrangements for our meetings. They have been such a blessing to us. Please lift them up in
your prayers as they work hard to make the SBC Annual Meeting and all of the
associated events a wonderful experience for all who attend. Please
keep them in your prayers.
pray for us to find another way to let our Southern Baptist Brothers and
Sisters know that the SBMF exists. NAMB is not going to sponsor us
for a booth this year. They told me that they are only giving
permission for two ministries to have booths this year. We were not
selected this year. This is sad as we started to make headway last
year on the SBC Annual Meeting Exhibit Floor. We must find another
way to advertise the ministries and missions affiliated with the
SBMF. We also need to find other ways to develop strong local Church
partnerships within the SBC. We can't do this work alone.
There are many SBC brothers and sisters who don't know that we
exist. They support Jewish evangelism ministries outside the
need the prayers and support of the SBC saints to accomplish the task of
bringing the Good News of Yeshua to the Jewish people in our
I said last year. Please
pray, there is lots of work to do. To
accomplishment the goal of G-d’s Economy and to Gain His Testimony
through the Body (ha'kadoshim - the saints), we must build up the saints in one accord, founded
on His Word and we
need help from our brothers and sisters in SBC to accomplish this task.
please pray for the ministries listed on the ministries web page, as they fight the good fight to
lead others to the Truth.

Ha'Shem Yeshua (Praise the Name of Jesus)
looking forward to seeing you at the 2009 SBMF Annual Meetings. Unless
we hear the Shofar sound and a call from above, "Come up here".
Then we look forward to seeing you up there.

Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood — and He has
made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father —
to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
BEHOLD, HE IS COMING WITH THE CLOUDS, and every eye will see Him, even
those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over
Him. So it is to be. Amen. "I

was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and I heard behind me a loud voice
like the sound of a trumpet, saying, " Write in a book what you see,
and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to
Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea."
Then I turned to see the
voice that was speaking with me. And having turned I saw [Rev

His Glorious Name Whose Kingdom is Forever and ever
you told someone about Yeshua? Have you brought Light into a dark life
by the Word of Life, Who is the Light of the world.
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.
