What the LORD is doing...
Introducing Janet S. ~ A New BIB Partner!
Hello to all of you at Blessing Israeli Believers!
I thought it only right that you should know who you are investing your help in, so this is an abridged version of what I have been doing for the last 30 years in Israel.
In 1988 at age 33, while in prayer in Kansas, the Lord asked me "Would you be willing to go to Israel and minister to My Jewish people? 'To minister to' means 'to take care of'. I was really excited about this. My husband David (a non believing Jew) had wanted to make Aliyah to immigrate to Israel and I had not. So when I told him what the Lord had told me he jumped to make arrangements and 7 months later, with 2 huge suitcases, a few boxes of things, $4000 dollars in our wallets, and one way tickets to Israel, we landed in Karmiel a fairly new northern Israel town.
By an absolute divine appointment I found out this town had a 3-month old new congregation, which I too began to attend. It was only 12 people; 8 new immigrant Jewish believers in Yeshua, myself and 3 native Israelis all born again. I became their worship leader for the next 12 years. That congregation 30 years old now is about 250 people, called Kehelat HaDerek, "The Church Of The Way" with the same Israeli Pastor Yossi Ovadia. That's how worship leading began for me in Israel.
All the while David and I have worked God NEVER left us without a way to supply our needs. I worked for Galtronics, an electronics company for Messianic Jews and believers in Yeshua in the land of Israel.
2 years later I was led to work for an Israeli at-home nursing care company that sent people into the homes of Israelis to take care of their elderly. One most wonderful lady was a 95-year old Thessalonian (Greek) Jewish woman who escaped the Nazi devastation of her community during WW2. I cared for her for 2 years till she passed. I had the privilege of working for others as well. Then through this same company, in 1998 I was asked to accompany an emotionally challenged 21-year old Israeli man to his daily program at a village for emotionally and physically handicapped adults. From this position, in 2000, I ended up becoming the manager of their new organic goat milk dairy at this village Kishorit, which they had as animal therapy. It started with 24 goats. Through breeding and purchasing I ended up with over 750 milker goats. (Today this dairy has over 2000 goats, which provides a great amount of organic goat milk for Harduf, the biggest organic foods company in Israel.)
After 3 years on this job, the Lord told me to prepare to leave and 'get to David Davis'. I sort of knew who this Pastor was, that guy on the top of Mt. Carmel. To make the story short, I ended up volunteering for Carmel Assembly and joining Karen Davis's worship team, and serving them in other capacities for several years from 2003 to 2009, all this driving to Haifa every day from Karmiel.
In 2010 we actually moved to Haifa. I felt led of the Lord to join Dani Sayag and his wife to start a new native Israeli congregation Kerem El, down in Haifa Center and play on the worship team, which I am doing to this day. I had been serving, leading worship for various meetings, while volunteering, and then working at Beit Yedidia, the guesthouse where this congregation meets. I stopped the Beit Yedidia work in 2014 to get involved full time with worship leading, intercession and being part of the Out Reach team to Tel Aviv for the drug rehab program of Beit Nitzachon, House of Victory.
Alas, by 2017, I found I needed to stop the Tel Aviv outreach and return to work as my pension does not provide enough for us to live on! My husband is not able to find work. He is diabetic and basically unemployable. So praise God!! He opened a door for me to work at Beit Evenezer, a Christian Nursing Home for elderly Jews and Arabs who spent their lives serving the Lord!! Some of these Jews being amongst the last living Holocaust survivors. So, I get to 'take care of' the Lord's servants!! Unfortunately, even with this job, and my pension, I have not been able to make enough to live on and we have been struggling. When Dov offered your help, I was exceedingly overwhelmed and grateful because I had been begging the Lord to help me some how. I can't work any more hours or I lose my pension.
You have no idea how much your help means to me, and to the Lord, that you are willing to lend us a hand here in the service of the Lord in Israel. The Lord sees you and He knows that you are giving to Him by helping us. I continue to sing on our worship team for congregation and occasional extra meetings. But working now at Beit Evenezer Home is a whole new ministry of loving on the old mover-shakers here in Israel!!
I cannot thank you enough for your extreme generosity!!!
In Yeshua our Messiah,
Thank you from Ezra & Shulamite, Golan Heights
Through designated donations from Blessing Israeli Believers we were able to stand along side a believing couple who found themselves unable to pay their rent because of a series of events out of their control. They have asked us to thank you and your gift literally brought tears to their eyes as you touched them with His love.
"Comfort, yes, comfort My people!" Says your God. Isaiah 40:1
It is such a blessing to be a part of what God is doing in the midst of the Holocaust Survivors. A few more have joined our discussion group after attending a different meeting where we are making our way through the Gospel of Mark. The text was about how religion makes the word of God of no effect through the traditions which have been handed down to them. This brought about a great discussion about traditions, religion, and what God reveals to us in His Word.

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.
