“Many will give thanks
on our behalf for the gracious favor
granted us in answer
to the prayers of many”
2 Corinthians 1:11.
An appropriate time to thank you for your gifts and prayers that opened doors and sustained us during our recent trip to Israel.
The first part of our time was devoted to Youth With a Mission meetings with some of the global leaders among both Jewish ministry as well as Arab ministry. Both Don and Tod were able to share on Israel as it relates to ministry among Arabs and other nations. We could sense hearts opening. One of the leaders among Arab ministry remarked that when Muslim background believers begin to love Israel and the Jewish people, this could indeed trigger world revival.
The “tour” group represented at least four nations and several cities in the US. Together we visited many ministries run by believers in the land ministering to orphans, widows, holocaust survivors, new immigrants, refugees, Palestinians, Jews, and international residents. Each visit marked us with the heart of God and by His grace we were able to bless them with our prayers, encouragement, and deepening relationship.
Because of your generosity, we brought gifts to holocaust survivors and new immigrants (young doctors from the former Soviet Union) and were able to share our faith in Yeshua with them.
We also helped the daughter of a believing Arab family in Nablus (biblical Shechem) in the “West Bank” (biblical Samaria). Her family is persecuted because of their faith, but she has a God given dream to get a college degree and bring Godly influence to her fellow Palestinians.
Thank you again for your love, prayers, and financial support. Please keep asking the Lord about gifts to Caleb for the work in Israel to which we specifically are called. We are the faces they know, but your sacrificial living and giving will not go unheeded by the Lord.
Sincerely, Don and Tod
“Equipping God’s people with His heart and purpose
for Israel and the nations.”
