News Update February 27, 2006

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.”

  Don't Forget - Encampment is Coming in June:

I thank my God, making mention of you always in my prayers, hearing of your love and faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints, that the sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgment of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. [Philem 6 NKJV]

Baruch Ha'bah B’Shem Adonai.  [Psalms 118:26]

Blessed is He Who comes in the Name of the L-rd. [Matthew 23:29]


Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.   [Hebrews 10:23-25]

We pray that all is well with you.  G-d is so good.  He is blessing us all the time. Be blessed, be healthy, be found in Him.

Ministry Report From: Pastor Bill Liniewicz for Radio India

The Lord has bless us in this current trip abundantly. I apologize that I couldn't write sooner but there is no real internet up in the real (wow) jungle. Pastor Abraham said these people are 50 years behind the rest of the country and that's pretty bad. We were based out of a town called Srikakulam I pronounced it Sri Cocka Land. Sorry but that's how it sounds, and ...... well you get the idea.


We have been blessed in many ways with winning hundreds of souls for the Lord. Also God's Hand was again on us as at an outdoor meeting Pastor Abraham didn't want we went ahead and preached across the village square from a large Hindu temple with the monkey god staring at us as we preached. A crowd of Hindu's was forming and being incited by a demon possessed priestess and getting drunk on cheap alcohol picked up club and pitch forks to attack us after Pastor Abraham gave the closing prayer, but praise the Lord He confused them and gave us an opportunity to leave un-noticed. They had hundreds of Hindus in the shadows listening to us preach and I shared my story of how bad I was but the Lord still changed me. That seemed to capture their attention. We pray that many will have their hearts pricked by the Holy Spirit from that outreach.


The second more worrisome meeting came two nights ago. We were preaching in a large church (~100 people) by another Hindu temple on the eve of a "feast" day for them. While teaching I saw through the palm leaf roof and walls a procession of people beating drums and making allot of animal noises pass by us. Then as Pastor Abraham was following up from my opening this same group came back, now drunk also, and circled our church, they had torches and more drums making a noise like I imagine they did at the altar of the "golden" cow. We were all concerned that the building would be torched with only a small entrance to crawl through that they were blocking. Pastor Abraham continued as is nothing was happening knowing that his message was being broadcast outside on the PA system that all the churches and temples use. When Abraham was done with the closing prayer the crowd disbanded, Abraham sat down to eat the customarily supper like no  big deal.


Keep us in prayer for the meetings back now in Abraham's are of Eluru, which is a safe area.


God Bless
Pastor Bill

SBMF Annual Meeting News From Your President And Servant

Prepare for the SBMF Annual Meeting.

The SBMF Annual meeting will be coming up soon in Greensboro, NC.  I recommend that you contact the SBC Lodging Agency for reservations.  Many of us are lodging in the area of the Sheraton Greensboro Hotel at Four Seasons or the Greensboro Coliseum Complex.

Housing Telephone:

Toll Free (USA): 1-877-384-8056

International: 336-174-2282

Fax:  336-378-4484



SBC Housing Bureau c/o GACVB

317 S. Greene Street, Greensboro, NC. 27401, United States

Plans for the meetings:

We are still working on child care for the times that we have meetings.  There are many of you who would like to attend and need help with the children.  There are two other major groups meeting when we meet.  There is childcare for them so I pray that they will let us join them with our children.   Please let me know if you have childcare needs for these meetings.

As of this date we are scheduled to meet Saturday for Yeshiva and Business meetings.  We are looking for a Messianic Congregation in the area to help us with worship music and a place to meet on Erev Shabbat for corporate worship.  If you know of a congregation in the Greensboro, NC area please contact me via e-mail.  We are contacting the local associations in the Greensboro area in hopes to find a congregation who will give us hospitality for Friday evening Erev Shabbat celebration.

The dates for our meetings are scheduled for June 9th & 10th 2006.  Many of the brothers and sisters wish to attend the SBC Pastors Conference that starts Sunday evening.  We may have Davidic Worship Dance training on Sunday afternoon.  

We are on the move.  G-d has blessed us with two wonderful speakers.  Dr. Ed Stetzer from NAMB and Sam Nadler from Word of Messiah Ministries.  Baruch HaShem Yeshua.



Dr. Stetzer (NAMB) will be speaking on an area where he has a great deal of experience.  He will teach Effective Planting of Successful New Works.  Dr Stetzer will surprise us with a Biblical teaching, we will find useful.  I expect that he will also give us a great deal of information how we can work closer with NAMB.



NAMB - Director of Research, Missiologist - coordinate and oversee mission research of the North American culture and churches for greater evangelistic and church planting effectiveness.  Partner Enlistment Manager and Manager of Strategic Networks.  Directed the Nehemiah Project and partnerships with colleges, seminaries, and institutions.   Led the Nehemiah Project to increase church planter deployments to 122 in 2003.  Created video classes for Introduction to Church Planting classes.   Wrote scholarly articles to support the church planting program.  1998-2001 Nehemiah Project Professor.  Church Planter and Teaching Pastor.



Sam Nadler will be teaching:  Messianic Apologetics, a defense not of His Messiahship, but of a balanced messianic approach, especially as to congregation planting. This includes the necessity of the Gentile Believers in the messianic movement.


Sam is a Jewish believer in Jesus who  has a passion to communicate the Good News to his people, and to see discipleship established in Jewish communities around the world.  Raised in New York City according to Jewish tradition, Sam hungered for what the Messiah of Israel alone can give: atonement and new life.  After finding Yeshua (Jesus) as his Messiah, Sam has been in full-time service for Him since the early 70's.  First as a leader with Jews for Jesus, he established their New York City ministry. Later as President of Chosen People Ministries, he established international outreach, discipleship programs, congregational planting and leadership development in Israel, the Ukraine, Germany, South America, Canada as well as the United States.  As president of Word of Messiah Ministries, Sam is continuing to develop leaders & outreach to make a world-wide impact for the Gospel among his Jewish People.



We are praying that we can have a time of Davidic Dance training.  Connie Saffel has told us that she would like to bring some dance training into the meeting.  We are attempting to find the time and a location to meet early on Sunday afternoon the 11th.


Please see the 2006 SBMF Annual Meeting Updates for the Encampment schedule.


We are looking forward to our coming together in praise, fellowship and learning. Remember Hebrews 10:23-25


We are still in prayer for a volunteer to lead us in music Worship, Friday evening and Saturday.


Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. [James 5:16  NASU]


We alone are not righteous.  Our righteousness is found only in our L-rd and Savior Yeshua Ha’Mashiach (Jesus the Messiah).  As we are found in Him, in faith, we are found in His righteousness.


"And all things you ask in prayer , believing, you will receive." [Matt 21:22  NASU]

We are looking forward to seeing you at the 2006 SBMF Annual Meetings.  Unless we hear the shofar sound and a call from above, "Come up here".

Baruch Ha'bah B'Shem Adonai

Prayer Request From Your President:  Ric Worshill

We are what we eat.  Feast on the Tree of Life.  Be filled with Light and Life.  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 LORD!  [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]
