We’re so thankful for all your prayers for our recent situation when Ashdod municipality issued an administrative closure order on our new building, claiming we were violating our usage permit.
Our prayers were answered when we were able to get the municipality to lift the ban and allow us to continue temporarily operating from our facility during the COVID19 crisis.
The power of the praying church is an amazing force! Just like in Acts 12:5 — “So Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him.”
You standing in prayer with us gives us amazing breakthroughs. Thanks to your prayers the attacks on us and attempts to close down our congregation have stopped.
Although temporary, it enables to continue our humanitarian efforts during this challenging time when so many families depend on the food baskets we supply them with.
Despite having to endure persecutions, even during the COVID19 crisis, it’s nothing new to us. We have been conditioned by past persecutions and we know God strengthens us to endure even more because we believe this is the time God is using us even more for His glory!
2 Timothy 3:12 — “In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.”
