Serving the Body of Messiah in Israel since August 2001
& Strategically Aimed for the Lord’s Harvest in Israel
Everyday brings news that horrifies, disgusts and frightens, but also other news that is exciting, encouraging and powerful. Truly, like the words of Paul Wilbur’s song, these are the Days of Elijah: "These are the days of great trials of famine and darkness and sword" over against "And these are the days of Ezekiel, the dry bones becoming flesh. And these are the days of Your servant, David, rebuilding a temple of praise."

Strategically Aimed for the Lord’s Harvest in Israel
Ruth’s letter this month – Happy birthday, Ruth on your 77th birthday – remembers a couple of times that brief encounters made a surprisingly powerful impact on people God put in her path. I encourage you to read this encouraging report inside the attached Weekly Summary. It will build you up!
News from David and Leah Ortiz is good – Ami is getting scar-erasing treatments that were developed for soldiers returning from Afghanistan – but also there is a need for prayer as David will be having laparoscopic surgery tomorrow (Thurs June 6) as a colonoscopy found a tumor that is one stage before cancer. Pray for David’s surgery (and Ami’s laser surgeries) to be 100% effective.
If you would like to know more about the groundbreaking laser treatments that Ami is getting, they have written a really great and informative article about it and what Ami is going through during these treatments. Access it here. They also report that the letter writing campaign to the Israeli government to re-classify Ami as a victim of terror so he can get the legal and medical benefits afforded to terror victims, is yielding results. It is not too late to write a letter and you can get details on how to do that here: A REQUEST for INTERVENTION &; PRAYER from DAVID & LEAH ORTIZ
This link will take you to some e-mail exchanges between Howard and another a brother discussing what we believe the Scriptures teach about Israel, the Israel of God, the Commonwealth of Israel, and the Church of God.
From the Caspari Media Review we have a report on a book by one of the leaders in the Eilat Messianic Congregation that was reviewed by the Eilat local paper. “Judy Galblum-Pex’s book about the Sudanese refugees in Israel, which was recently published in Hebrew. The article describes how Judy is personally involved with the Sudanese refugees in Eilat, which is why she is able to write this “breathtaking account” of their journey from Sudan all the way through Egypt and the Sinai desert into Israel.” This is such a good testimony – that is obvious from the Israeli reviewer.
Pray for David Ortiz who on June 6 will undergo laparoscopic surgery to remove a tumor that is one stage before cancer according to doctors. Please pray for the wife of Ariel Ben David, who leads an Eilat Congregation, and also for his worship leader, both of whom were recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Please continue to pray for Neriyah Arabov, a Chosen People minister in Bat Yam who needs a kidney transplant. He has a donor, but due to some compatibility issues, Neriyah is undergoing treatments now that they hope will remove the compatibility issues. Pray for the treatments to be successful. Please continue to intercede for Katya Morrison at Tents of Mercy this week to get another bone marrow biopsy then in another 3 weeks, an appointment to discuss the findings: Pray for no leukemia to be the report. Tom in the Galilee is believing for victory over cancer in Carmel. Pray for Ami Ortiz for ongoing issues from the bomb blast – and that he would win the appeal for government recognition that he is a terror victim. It would mean benefits for the continuing surgeries and legal expenses. Pray for Ariel of Succat Hallel. Elise Glasser-Levine of Ahavat Yeshua suffering from mysterious and debilitating leg pain for over a year. Pray for Kay Wilson still suffering from PTSD after surviving a stabbing terrorism attack that her friend did not survive. Keep Baby Netaley’s full recovery in your prayers. Please pray for Daniel Meyuseff who had to undergo surgery due to an intense infection. Harvest of Asher asks for continued prayer for M. who had surgery not long ago and is now having difficulty with the correct amount and type of medication to regulate insulin. Please hold him up in prayer for multiple health issues! Also continue to pray for Elena, also in the Acco congregation.
