Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved. Romans 10:1
Report From Blessing Israeli Believers Partners: Ariel & Shayla
Thank you for sending out the update about our project, and thank you again for sending the funds for the graphic design!
Quick update on the graphic design: The graphic designer that was going to work on the booklet informed us that he is currently overwhelmed with projects, and recommended that we find another designer if we want to move ahead quickly. Since we do desire to get this powerful evangelistic tool out into the hands of Israelis soon, we are currently approaching another graphic designer. Please pray for God’s perfect will to be accomplished in His timing, and for this booklet to have an appealing design that will draw non-believing Jewish people in to read about God’s love for them.
Here’s a story about “Daniel”, whom I spoke with about Yeshua recently………I went to speak with a colleague at my work about a particular issue. However, the Lord somehow directed the conversation in such a way that we never spoke about that issue – instead, we spoke about Yeshua!
This middle-aged man is named “Daniel”, and he very strongly believes in the existence of God, and expounded on the wonders of creation with me. I agreed and spoke about the miraculous return of the Jewish people to Israel and how it is a fulfillment of God’s promises from over 2,400 years ago. He was very fascinated by this idea, and had never heard about prophecy and fulfillment before. He asked me more about the Tanakh (Old Testament), and about what’s written in it.
I explained more, and then presented the Gospel. I explained about creation, the fall, and God’s plan of redemption. He was truly touched and surprised by the idea of a humble God – one that would actually care about us enough to come in the form of a man into this broken world. He was also excited by the idea that Yeshua’s death and resurrection paved the way for ALL people groups to come to God, and that it was not limited to the Jewish people or any other group.
We talked for quite some time, but then something came up, and he said, “Let’s continue this conversation later.”
So he invited my wife and me to come visit him and his family. He said without any sarcasm, “Who knows? Maybe you’ll persuade us to believe like you do!”
Praise God for such favor! Please pray with me that God will cause the seed that was planted in “Daniel’s” heart to grow, and that we would have a fruitful visit with him and his family soon.
Blessings in Messiah Yeshua……Ariel and Shayla
