A 2017 Vision Note from BIB Co-Founder Dov Schwarz
Dear Blessing Israeli Believers Partners and Friends,
As promised I would like to begin this letter with a note from myself, and John McTernan, as founders of this ministry. We both see 2017 as a potential year of great change, Kingdom opportunity, and shaking. We believe and sense that this is going to be a very special and unique year in Israel and in the Nations. Having said that, we also believe that our vision statement for BIB is going to be very powerful for this New Year:
Blessing Israeli Believers exists to uniquely bless and empower Israeli followers of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) to be the shining light to Israel and the Nations of the world!
In 2017 here are just some of the many Kingdom efforts we are looking forward to being involved in here in the Land:
The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined. (Isaiah 9:2)
This year our partners are laboring in the harvest field of Messiah Yeshua. There are many different strategies and methods being employed with the goal of reaching as many precious Jews, Muslims, and others with the gospel of Israel's Messiah Yeshua.
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 (Matthew 28:19)
Through teaching, preaching, shepherding (pastoring), praying, counseling, men's Bible studies and groups, and much more we are becoming more mature Israeli Believers by the grace and mercy of Abba Father. Our Israeli Partners' influence in this regard is in Jerusalem, Haifa, the Galilee, and the Golan Heights.
Saving Precious Israeli Babies
Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.(Proverbs 31:8)
Our BIB Pro Life work is to come alongside Sandy Shoshani and Israel Pro Life to fund the saving of Israeli babies through Operation Moses and other programs. What an honor to save Israeli Babies from certain death and to see them and their mothers live in the Land of Israel.
"Comfort, yes, comfort My people!" Says your God. (Isaiah 40:1)
The Holocaust Survivors are aging and passing away so quickly now. We see this ministry, along with the others mentioned today, as an urgent Kingdom matter. Two of our partners are reaching so many of them, not only with physical food, but also with the manna from heaven - Messiah Jesus!
Ministry To The Poor
For it pleased those from Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor among the saints who are in Jerusalem. It pleased them indeed, and they are their debtors. For if the Gentiles have been partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister to them in material things. (Romans 15:26-27)
Messiah Yeshua told us the poor would be with us always and that a good part of the stewardship of disciples of Messiah Jesus is to be measured by how we care for the poor. In Romans 15:26, 27 we saw that Paul took offerings from the nations to poor Israeli Believers in Messiah Jesus-this is our example today! Very specifically five of our partners in Jerusalem, Netanya, Haifa, and the Galilee have a very powerful outreach to poor Israeli believers and those 'not yet' believers.
Israel Protection Dog Program
Deliver the poor and needy; Free them from the hand of the wicked. (Psalm 82:4)
Our first protection dogs are being deployed in Samaria (West Bank) in February. One of them will be on patrol with a village watchman in a Jewish village that borders Ramallah, the headquarters of the Palestinian Authority. There is a constant threat of terrorism there. We have many opportunities and need financial support to deploy more dogs as soon as possible.
Please join with us in prayer and as the Lord leads, even financial support for this important New Year as we shine the light of the gospel here in Israel!

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.
