What the LORD is doing...
Update from our BIB Partners Ariel & Shayla, Tree of Life
Equipping for the Harvest
In Israel today there’s more interest in Jesus, Yeshua, than any time in nearly 2,000 years, but the number of Israeli believers who can share their faith effectively is far too small to reach those interested. Our passion is to help raise up many more effective laborers for the harvest – both online and on the streets.
Our workshops and training videos are designed to equip people in such areas as:
•Sharing the Gospel effectively
•Our identity in Messiah
•Answering common Jewish objections to Yeshua
•How to shift topics to talking about God
•How to start conversations
•Praying for the sick, and more
After the teaching, we go out on the streets together two by two, so people can see live examples of how to share the Gospel, then gain experience themselves. They've shared with us that the practical training helps them overcome fears and develop a lifestyle of sharing the Gospel wherever they go.
We train people to connect with the thousands of Israelis who’ve been responding to our videos on social media and answer their questions about the faith. The need is so great that we’re seeking to expand our online response team.
When Jews, Arabs, and believers from many backgrounds come together with one heart and one vision, God’s heart is stirred, He gives greater anointing and commands the blessing of eternal life, just as He promised (Psalm 133).
So we felt God leading us to start inviting local pastors and people with a heart for evangelism to joint prayer breakfasts, in order to increase unity for the sake of spreading the Gospel more effectively together.
And now God is doing something exciting: Believers from many congregations in our area have begun going out to share the Gospel together (sometimes even over 60 local believers at once!). We’ve been able to organize much larger events and reach out to many more people.
Many blessing in Messiah! Ariel & Shayla

A Word from BIB Partners Ezra & Shulamite, Golan Heights
We thank you for all your prayers and standing with us here in Israel. God is moving and we are running to keep up with all He is accomplishing. It is our prayer that this update will encourage you to continue to be part of the team here in Israel.
Camping on the shore of the Sea of Galilee and enjoying the warm weather. Amazingly we have been receiving rain 1-2 days per week, which is keeping everything nice and green.
Our Program has entered its last 20 days. Pray for them to finish well and their lives will be changed by the Holy Spirit.
Pray for our time at the Dead Sea, Masada, Ein Gedi, Eilat, Timnah, and Kfar Hanokdim - Bedouin Experience.
We are accepting applications for our Spring 2024 Program as our Fall 2023 is full.
First time four Fellowships in the Golan Heights were invited to gather together for a picnic in the park by our home. Many attended and we pray everyone will attend in the future when we gather together. We have been blessed to have been a part of starting two of the four Fellowships.
Pray for our Young Adult gatherings, which includes the students from our Discipleship Program, and local Israeli Believers from our town. The amazing thing is that we have been blessed to minister to these young Israelis when they were young children and God has brought them back into our lives to encourage them in the LORD.
All for His Name's Sake, Ezra & Shulamite

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.
