Greetings from Israel. Thank you so much for standing with us in prayer and generous giving. We appreciate you! While the eyes of the world watch to see what will happen next in Israel, some are troubled, fearful, & depressed. But HOPE is blossoming in our congregation and city - God is moving in a new, powerful way.
We share some stories below of God touching hearts
I had a dream...
A man from another religion has visited the church several times. Recently he came to me and said, “I had a dream. In the dream, a man appeared to me wearing ripped cloths and over his ripped cloths were royal robes. I knew he was Jesus. Can you tell me what this dream means?” The man wept as I told him that Jesus the King of Kings was broken and treated like a slave for his sake.
Salvation of Families...
A contractor who recently began working on our building was touched by the care that he received from the believers who work alongside him. He has met Jesus. After one month of coming to the worship meetings, he told me, “next week, me and my wife and children are coming to church.”
Midnight phone call...
One night some people tried to steal materials from the church site. I got a call at midnight telling me “come to the church”. I arrived and found that the muslim neighbors near the church were hiding, waiting to catch the thieves if they entered the building. These men told me, “Go home. We are watching God’s House for you.” They stayed until dawn watching the building. God is using our neighbors to help and even provide the church with materials and tools.
It’s so exciting to see a dream taking shape.
We’ve used all the resources that have been provided to this point. We have an anticipation that God will supply all the remaining needs. With $200,000 we will purchase windows and doors, tiles, stone facing, fire-safety sprinklers, dry walls, acoustic ceiling, plumbing fixtures, paint, decoration & furnishings.

New Life Campaign --- In July a massive outreach campaign to the Arabs in Israel. For the first time in the history of Israel, we can put material connected to faith on the national TV. 15 stories of believers who have met the Lord will be broadcast during prime time. With the help and support of Finnish Media Organization IRR TV and the cooperation of believing congregations all over this country, we will cover the land with billboards, fliers, DVD’s, personal evangelism and other materials. Please intercede with us for protection and openness in the spiritual realm. Members from our church will receive special training on personal evangelism and knowledge on how to counsel and lead people to Jesus over the phone
