EXCITING NEW MINISTRIES IN LAND PDF Print E-mail

Louise and Lawrence Hirsch have recently returned from Israel where they were involved with several ministry events: a retreat sponsored by Chosen People Ministries to mentor and encourage young Israeli believers, a conference called Jerusalem Encounter designed to engage the next generation of believers with mission and ministry in Israel, and a board meeting with our own partner ministry in Israel, Beit Sar Shalom. As well a new messianic outreach centre was opened in Ramat Gan, a popular suburb east of Tel Aviv with a high concentration of younger people. "I believe we are witnessing a growing move of God here in Israel as the new generation of believers are stepping forward to serve the Lord in the Land," Lawrence said. "It is exciting times and it is such a privilege to be a part of what God is doing in Israel."

 
HELP FOR NEW IMMIGRANTS PDF Print E-mail

Israel has had a recent influx of refugees, including people from Eastern Ukraine. Imagine what it is like to be in a new country under duress. In addition to not knowing the language or culture, no friends, no relatives and only a few shekels in your pocket. Two elderly women met on the way to Israel, and on arrival rented a room together to save money. But on the day they were to move in, the former tenants hadn't removed their belongings or returned the keys. Our staff members Sergey and Rita helped resolve the situation, and bought the women a mattress since they didn't have enough money to buy one. It was a joy to see the look on their faces. Our ministry partners in Israel are thrilled to help Jewish immigrants settle into life in their new country and historic homeland.

 
PRIVILEGE TO SERVE NEWCOMERS PDF Print E-mail

During the hectic season of Passover, our outreach worker Barry noticed more refugees in the churches. After speaking at a service, a young Iranian man aged around 25 came up to the book table. Barry greeted him with Shalom Aleichem (peace be upon you), and the young man said it was the first time he'd met a Jewish follower of Jesus. His journey to Australia had started in Iran and then he lived in refugee camps in Jordan, which was a very harrowing experience. Eventually he sought asylum in Australia. Barry considers it a great privilege to meet with these extraordinary, newly-arrived people here in Australia.

 
MESSIAH IS ULTIMATE DESTINATION PDF Print E-mail

Robert drove from Canberra to Sydney with a Jewish friend to help pick up a car. On the road they were able to talk about why Jerusalem is the centre of world politics. This led to a discussion about the prophets such as Zechariah and Joel, and how world politics would continue to get worse and worse until the Messiah returns. "While this is only a seed to show that Adonai is God, we are praying that God's Spirit will soften the heart so that the seed will be on good soil," said Robert.

 
CHILDREN SPARK ETERNITY LINK PDF Print E-mail

Jay took his 7-year-old daughter to a friend's birthday party and got chatting with a couple who'd also brought their daughter along. After a brief conversation they asked Jay what he did and he shared that he was part of the leadership of local Messianic Community. The wife of the couple told him about her friend at work who kept on sharing about Yeshua. He was an amazing man who shone with love and gave her lots of material about Yeshua. Then she made the most amazing statement: "I have started believing that Jesus is the Messiah". This was quickly followed by: "How can I learn more about Jesus?" After being so surprised by these statements, Jay shared with her about the Brit Hadashah, the New Testament. She was excited to learn more.
