As 2022 came to a close, we looked back at the experiences and milestones we left behind, and we had to acknowledge God’s grace every step of the way. We ended the year with gratitude; for the victories, the lessons, as well as the challenges that showed us that Yeshua is indeed always with us and that His grace is always enough.
It was an important year in many aspects; one of many changes, and challenges; of things gained, as well as things lost. As painful as change is, it forces us to grow and become more Christlike. While faced with the reality of people’s struggles, it pushed us to grow in kindness, generosity, and love.
Even though this year challenged us as believers, as well as as a congregation, it also drove us to rise up to the challenge, get more creative, trustingly find solutions along the way, recognizes the times we’re living in, and better prepare for what is ahead.
If anything, this year served as a reminder that we serve a mighty God who is not limited by our limitations. He makes a way where there isn’t one.
Our work not only grew more than ever this year; it adjusted, transformed, and adapted — enabling us to reach more people and to connect with them on a more personal level.
You, dear friend, have been an inseparable part of our journey so far.
Your friendship, encouragement, prayers, and financial support were reflected not only in the number of people we were able to reach but also in the astounding impact and difference that your friendship has made in the lives of so many Israelis.
The victories God granted us this year are also your victories! We thank the Lord for you and pray that 2023 will open the doors to an even greater harvest, as we continue walking in the vision the Lord gave us so many years ago.
I just wanted to take a moment to say… THANK YOU!
Thank you for the prayers, the love, the encouragement, and the incredible generosity in such difficult times. Thank you for being a supporting pillar of our ministry and of the nation of Israel.
Thank you for being such a vital part of our journey, especially during troubled times. It means more than you know. You are God’s blessing to the nation of Israel, and we’re grateful for your faithful friendship.
We pray 2023 would be a year saturated with God’s grace and favor for you and your loved ones.
Happy and blessed New Year!
