What the LORD is doing...
Summer update from Efraim & Jeannie, Western Galilee
Shalom! Blessings and peace to you all this season. Summer in Israel is always hot and hotter. We all make the effort to find ways to get cool; whether it is an air-conditioned room, a cool drink or just walking on the shady side of the street. During the oppressive heat, we are reminded that refreshing others is the calling of the godly.
A person of blessing will be enriched
and he who gives water also will be refreshed. Proverbs 11:25
The ministry of the Good News is refreshing water, a cool breeze to those in need. Here in Israel our teams are spiritually seeking to refresh all we can. During the months of July and August many people in Israel get away for vacation and things shut down. This is especially true for people in the Tel Aviv area.
It is also a good time when those of us with family and school-aged children take vacation. During the summer months, some of our ministry activities are paused or put on hold. That is certainly the situation at the Mercaz (the Center), our Ramat Gan Messianic Center for Bet Sar Shalom. (Ramat Gan is an adjacent suburb of Tel Aviv.) During the year these events include: weekly activities for children, Bible fellowship time, evening worship concerts, music events for the rock'n community, Shabbat dinners and lots of gatherings and seminars. These events are usually well attended and include many seekers.
Even though Jeannie and I are up in Nahariyya working with the community here, we are blessed to be included in the Ramat Gan Mercaz team. Our burden for the area comes from ministering in the Tel Aviv area for more than 15 years among the many young people in that region. In fact, Tel Aviv has the highest percentage of single Israelis than any other city in Israel.
Please pray for all of us ministering in Israel during these summer months.
Thank you so much for your support and concern for our ministry here in the Land of Israel during these days.
Yours in Yeshua,
Efraim & Jeannie
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let them say among the nations, "The LORD reigns!" 1 Chronicles 16:31
Gospel Outreach To The Nations From The Promised Land!
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.
Just think of it-certainly our Heavenly Father is pleased! A Jewish follower of Messiah Jesus is taking the gospel from Israel to Africa, according to the Lord's apostolic words through Matthew! Thankfully, I have great relationships with special pastors and leaders in many African countries. I will be leaving Israel in early September to minister the life of the Jewish Messiah Yeshua in Rwanda.
In countries like Israel and the USA it is sometimes very challenging to preach the gospel with visible fruit-not many saved right in front of you. But in sub-Saharan Africa oftentimes many come to Messiah during one short trip! So while we need to use relationship building and have a more challenging field to labor in at home -- when we go to Africa Lord willing, we will see precious souls saved in front of our eyes-Oh please Lord Yeshua!
Along with preaching the gospel I will be leading pastor conferences and making disciples through the teaching of the word of Elohim (God) in churches in Rwanda. This country has experienced tragic circumstances including genocide, poverty, a sea of orphans and widows, diseases, and more. However, we know that our Savior has comfort and hope for these precious souls.
Please prayerfully consider praying and supporting this September 2019 Kingdom of Messiah Yeshua outreach from Israel. There are many expenses such as plane fare, lodging, meals, etc. Lord willing, we will celebrate together as the words of Messiah Yeshua leap off the pages of His mighty word! Hallelujah and Amen!

Romans 15:26-27 For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem. It hath pleased them verily; and their debtors they are. For if the Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister unto them in carnal (material) things.
