What the LORD is doing...
In the past, Blessing Israeli Believers has come alongside this Israeli believing family. Here is an update of their situation. Please be in prayer for Eldad’s health and the family’s financial situation. The Lord always has a plan, we need to be obedient and faithful to follow His direction for our lives. If you feel the leading of the Holy Spirit to join us in the practical needs for this family, please do as He leads, and note “Sagi Family” in your giving.
Dear Blessing Israeli Believers,
It is with a very sad but thankful heart that I am sending you our family and business update. We are aware that the Covid-19 pandemic has forced millions of small businesses across the globe to close their doors. We are amazed and so thankful that our small business survived 2020! We give praise and thanks to Yeshua for Blessing Israeli Believers, for blessing our family with much-needed financial aid during the Coronavirus pandemic for a few months. Your generous support enabled us to provide for our family during the crisis.
However, we are facing new challenges in 2021. Our whole family contracted Covid-19 in August. Praise the Lord that our 5 children and I recovered. Unfortunately, Covid-19 has caused further damage to Eldad’s immune system and nervous system. He is experiencing such debilitating pain that he has been unable to work for the past 3 months, and we have been forced to close our small business, Lily-Pops. After much prayer and discussion, we have decided that this is in the best interest of Eldad’s health.
At the start of October, we reached out to Blessing Israeli Believers explaining our very difficult situation, we didn’t have money to pay our rent or to buy groceries. They immediately blessed us with funds to purchase groceries. It is truly amazing how God always shows up at the last minute. When we think that the world around us is falling apart, He shows up, reminding us that He has always been and is always there right beside us…all we must do is ask in prayer, obey, and trust in His plan for our lives.
On behalf of my family, thank you so very, very much for always walking with us, for praying for us and for loving us as your family in Yeshua. Thank you for supporting Blessing Israeli Believers, your kindness and generosity has touched our lives in so many ways!
We thank God for His Goodness and His provision and for using everyone at BIB and BIB’s supporters for reaching out and blessing our family.
In Messiah’s Joy,
Helen and Eldad and family
Update from Pastor Oded and Sandy Shoshani, King of Kings Hebrew Congregation
“And now abide faith, hope, love, these three;
but the greatest of these is love.”
1 Corinthians 13:13
During this time, corona continues to affect all walks of life, causing global instability that also affects us all personally. The response to this is an awakening of our instinct for self-preservation. As believers we are challenged to swim against the current, both personally and communally, and bring the love of the Lord to those around us, who already know our Messiah and those who don’t yet.
Let’s pray together that the Lord will give us wisdom and practical understanding to know how to navigate this time in a way that will bring glory and honor to His name and spread His love to a world so desperately in need of it.
Thanksgiving and Prayer Requests
Two adult children of a fairly new believer in our congregation very recently came to faith following the devastation of their lives after their parents divorce some years ago and living a culture of drugs. They have begun this journey of maturing and spiritual growth and the road ahead of them is long. Their father was shocked by their decision, and as a result he has been spurred forward to continue to grow in faith and deepen his relationship with the Lord. Please pray for the two children and their father to grow in the Lord, and for their mother who still is not a believer to know her Messiah.
Sharing the Love of God
We had the privilege to attend a Sukkot gathering along with a number of non-believers. The purpose of this time was to share the love of God. Oded presented the plan of salvation and the truth of Messiah in a clear and thought provoking manner. There was a lot of interest and people asked very deep and meaningful questions. Please pray that their hearts would be soft, and that the seeds sown would grow and bring much fruit!
Baptism & Sukkot
Oded and Sandy hosted an “open sukkah” at home for the congregation. It was a blessing to be together outdoors and rejoice together with food, fellowship and many deep and meaningful conversations. While we gathered in the sukkah, another of the newer believers in our midst was baptized in our backyard pool! What a blessing to hear her testify about who Yeshua is in her life, and how she wants to continue to walk closely with Him on a daily basis.
Another Home Group
Praise God another home group has opened in a new area of Jerusalem. It took six months of prayer and much encouragement for that to happen. Please pray that this group, along with the other groups, would continue to meet. Pray that there would be an open and secure atmosphere and that the participants would grow deeper in the love of the Lord and in faith.
With much love,
Oded & Sandy

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.
