|Our Next Level Youth Conference had a tremendously positive and spiritually fulfilling impact on our Israeli youth who were in attendance! Testimonies keep streaming in of changed lives and renewed passion for the Lord. Come with us now and revisit the passion and fire which is Next Level…|
Next Level Testimonies
Joseph’s Testimony: Joseph had been struggling with hearing problems for a long time, but this brave little guy was trusting God for a healing breakthrough. Joseph’s parents testify that they had been praying for a long time for Joseph’s healing to be fully restored, and they had remained in faith. During Next level, Joseph was having an amazing time with the Lord and enjoying fellowship with his friends from Beit Hallel Congregation.
Joseph recounts how during one of the worship services he felt the fire of God fall on him, and he felt consumed by the presence of God. At that moment Joseph heard a “popping” sound in both his ears and immediately his hearing was improved. Joseph was overcome with joy and thankfulness, and continued to worship the Lord with renewed passion, along with his friends by his side. A number of days have passed now since Next Level, and Joseph testifies that his hearing is 100% restored! Hallelujah!
Psalm 103:2-3 “Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.”
Esther’s Testimony: Precious little Esther is known by all of us here at Beit Hallel Congregation as a joyous and radiant child whose delight is in the Lord. Esther’s parents are both part of Beit Hallel’s leadership team and have been wonderful examples to their children of what it means to be ablaze with the Holy Spirit. Esther was deep in God’s presence with her eyes closed during worship at Next Level, when she suddenly felt strong arms embracing her in a hug. She opened her eyes to see who it was, and with her physical eyes she saw no-one, but when she closed her eyes again, she saw with the eyes of her heart that her Lord, Yeshua, was embracing her and His eyes were full of love for her!
Esther would never be the same again. After the conference session she went back home and searched the internet for passionate worship videos to watch and sing along with, because her life had been changed by the presence of God. Her desire now is to remain saturated in the presence of God and to worship him as often as she can, and also to help others experience the presence of God as she did. Praise the Lord!
Psalm 71:8 – “My mouth is filled with your praise, declaring your splendor all day long.”

Purim Kids Project
During Purim we had the wonderful opportunity to be a blessing to the children of new Jewish immigrants to Israel. These children, along with their parents, have often known hardship and persecution as Jews in the countries from which they have emigrated. These dear ones are returning to their ancient homeland of Israel in the hope of a better life.
Matthew 19:14,15 – “But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children. And He placed His hands on their heads and blessed them before He left.”
Through the generosity of our friends and partners we were able to prepare special Purim gift hampers with sweet treats and toys to surprise the children with, and to sweeten their time of transition as new Jewish immigrants to Israel. We were also able to bless the hearts of these precious children who have known hardship and displacement with a wonderful and uplifting concert to share the love of Yeshua with them!
It takes so little to put a smile on a child’s face, but it’s absolutely priceless! Our aim was to show these precious children what the heart of Yeshua is all about, and to help them see that they are loved, honored, and welcomed by Christians from all over the world, as the next generation of Israelis. Hallelujah!
|Thank you for being a blessing to the nation of Israel!|
