Historical week & big news for Voice of Judah Israel:
– Our biggest ever gospel outreach event
– Signing a contract to purchase our own congregation building
This weekend we will be holding our biggest gospel outreach celebration event yet, with over 1000 people attending.
We will be taking 60 buses packed with people to this special event that we had organized specifically so that people get a chance to hear the gospel. After the event, we will be taking everybody on a special biblical tour to visit some amazing sites where the gospel comes alive.
Initially we planned to gather 500 people, and even that was s stretch for us, but the response was so overwhelming that the number quickly grew to 800, and eventually 1000 people – all non-believers!
Last time we gathered 600 people and it was amazing. Imagine now, with over 1000 people together in one place, gathering just to hear the gospel for the first time in their life.
This is a recipe for a miracle and we expect God to do mighty things during this event.
Many would say this is a sign of the last days, when people in Israel respond so overwhelmingly to the call of the Gospel, especially during such troubling days.
God is doing something amazing, just as He promised through the prophet Ezekiel 39:25-29
“I will now restore the fortunes of Jacob and will have compassion on all the people of Israel, and I will be zealous for my holy name.
They will forget their shame and all the unfaithfulness they showed toward me when they lived in safety in their land with no one to make them afraid.
When I have brought them back from the nations and have gathered them from the countries of their enemies, I will be proved holy through them in the sight of many nations.
Then they will know that I am the Lord their God, for though I sent them into exile among the nations, I will gather them to their own land, not leaving any behind.
I will no longer hide my face from them, for I will pour out my Spirit on the people of Israel, declares the Sovereign Lord.”
This week turned out to be a truly historical week for us: not only are we organising our biggest gospel outreach event ever, but we are also signing a contract to finally purchase our very own congregation building!
What a whirlwind week! But we couldn’t be more grateful for how God has been moving and opening doors and preparing ways. Nothing is a coincidence that God combined two such historical moments for us in one week: acquiring a physical building for His church and also constructing a spiritual building through our largest ever evangelism project.
Truly an amazing testimony, which we will share with you in the next few days to update you on this much prayed-for and anticipated move to buy own own building that has been in the making for years, and is now finally becoming a reality.
In the mean our gospel outreach event & tour will take place this Saturday, and we really need your prayers!
Protection & security
– we’re going through very difficult times here in the Land, with very real security threats, with terrorist attacks happening here on daily basis. Please pray this even will go smooth, with God’s hand over the people.
Administration – since it’s the first time we ever try to organise an event of this size, our administration work is really crucial. We have been blessed with an amazing administrator and a great team that are working around the clock to ensure this event is a blessing and bears much fruit.
Salvation – Open hearts and open ears, pray for people’s receptiveness when hearing the gospel of Yeshua.
Volunteers – we have a very large group of volunteers for the event and we want to make sure things run smooth, given the size of the event. Pray for godly order and for our volunteers.
Follow up – a big part of the evengelism work that we do is the post-conference follow up work we do. It’s so crucial to not let people scatter once they hear the gospel and receive Jesus, but rather gather the fruit and make sure it endures. Discipling is a major part of our work, especially after an event like this. Please keep this in your prayers as we continue to update you on the amazing things God is doing to ensure 2015 ends on a glorious note.
To Him be all the glory!
