What the LORD is doing...
A look back at 2017 from Co-Founder Dov Schwarz
I find it truly breath taking that 2017 is closing and before it does, I think we should look back together at a snapshot of this year’s fruitful work.
For those who prayerfully and financially support our lives and work here in Israel I want to remind you that this is your fruitful labor as well!
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. Romans 1:16
Our gospel sharing is exploding in Israel! Through our Israeli believing partners, and myself, we have had unimaginable gospel sharing opportunities in 2017. One example is my Hebrew language teacher, a young secular Jewish man who is teaching me the New Testament in Hebrew. I am able to choose the passages and so far we have gone through much of John 3, Romans 1:16, Luke 4:18, and more. He is asking good questions and hearing the gospel over and over through the scriptures. Please pray for him to come to Messiah Yeshua, along with so many others who have heard the gospel this year!
“…Jesus said to him, Feed My sheep.” John 21:17
Benevolent giving is one of the central monthly works of Blessing Israeli Believers. The list of Israelis we have been able to come alongside and help is too long to mention in this letter. But, here are some categories: An elderly pensioner, single mothers (who chose life instead of abortion), Israeli soldiers, believing immigrants to Israel, holocaust survivors, and many more!
Israel Protection Dog Program
The wicked prowl on every side, when vileness is exalted among the sons of men. Psalm 12:8
Amazingly, we have been able to donate three protection dogs in 2017. A German Shepherd, a Belgian Malinois, and a Dutch Shepherd! Two are now deployed in high terror risk areas in Israel. One of them, a puppy born in a litter from our own dogs is living with his new family while in training.
To some in Israel—Israeli believers in Messiah Yeshua (like me) are thought of as very controversial. However, these precious families, who have received these incredible dogs, are very thankful for Zionist Christians who donated the funds to provide them. This program has also empowered me by forming a new perception. Some now see me in a very different light than what they have been taught to believe about Messianic Jews—such a blessing! These dogs cost about $5,000 each fully trained.
Watch Therefore Television
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations…” (Matthew 28:19)
It is good to remember that the first disciples were commanded to go out from Israel to the nations with the gospel. Blessing Israeli Believers helps me do just that! Our program in 2017 aired twice weekly and in 2018 we believe it will expand! Our program blankets North America and goes out on a satellite to 75% of the world. You can see archived “Watch Therefore” programs and find how to watch new programs in your area at our website: WatchTherefore.tv
To all those who prayerfully and financially partnered with us in 2017 we close this letter with these words that come deeply from our hearts:
“THANK YOU and MAY THE BLESSINGS OF ABRAHAM, ISSAC, AND JACOB—IN MESSIAH YESHUA (JESUS) REST UPON YOU IN 2018!”

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.
