April 2017

Shalom, in the name of our Precious Lamb of God,

We just finished celebrating Passover, which was on April 10th.  Happy Passover to you, and YES, He has risen indeed!
We at Abundant Bread of Salvation are excited to bring you great news that will cause great joy for all people! Many times you will hear these words referring to the birth of the Jewish Messiah Yeshua (Jesus), referred to in Luke 2.  Here we are in the month of April 2017 and the world remembers this same man that was born and from the town of David.  He celebrated the Passover, (known to many as the Last Supper) and he was to be a sign to our people.  That was an understatement, because what greater love can such a person have than to give His life for his friends?  He accomplished this through His death and resurrection and is called, "The Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world."  Halleluyah!
My dear friends, this is the greatest message of mercy and compassion, all year round!  With the work we do to bless our Jewish people, it is a selfless and many times painful process to carry the practical, emotional brokenness and spiritual burdens of the over 500 poor and needy people we serve monthly.
We'd like to share about a couple very special Passover events with these precious people, many of them elderly Holocaust Survivors.
We had a soup kitchen that was packed with needy people from wall to wall serving them a delicious home-cooked meal.  An announcement was made, referring to Isaiah 53, about our precious Messiah that was pierced for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities and by His wounds we are healed and can have eternal peace through him.  Amen!
We also had a Royalty Meal-Chinese style, with Holocaust Survivors and a special group of Amish believers.  This was held in a quality Chinese restaurant in Netanya.  The Amish presented a beautiful acapella rendition of the song, Amazing Grace, which was enjoyed by our group and all the guests in the restaurant heard the Good News.  Praise Adonai!
Passover food packages given as a reminder of their freedom and deliverance from Egypt.
Thanks to your support and prayers, we were able to supply every family, new and old Ethiopian and Russian immigrants, orphans, single mothers, widows, War Veterans, Holocaust survivors, a Bible based drug rehabilitation center as well as native Israelis, with a bountiful food package and Maztah (Unleavened Bread), for the Passover holiday.  THANK YOU!
Because of your sacrificial giving this month, we were also able to take a mini-van filled with believers and Holocaust survivors on a Biblical field trip to Jerusalem.  An amazing time was had by all for eternity. We visited the EMPTY, Garden Tomb of Yeshua, The Mt. of Olives, hearing the story of the Eastern Gate, as well as enjoying the breath taking panoramic view of the Temple Mount and ancient Jewish Old City.  Then, we took them to a Royalty Lunch meal at an Arab-Israeli restaurant, where they were physically blessed and loved on with His power, by our local volunteers and a special group from America with Ezra Adventures.
Their lives were changed forever because of your help.  Halleluyah!
There is so much more I could say, however, let me end with saying a special thank you from all the above-mentioned people for all your prayers and continued support.  Please, as you finish reading this, will you stand to your feet and bow your head in remembrance with us, in a special moment of silence and prayer for the millions of Jews who were tortured and perished, for Holocaust Memorial Day on April 24th.
With all of our hearts and His heart working through us,

Shalom from The Land (Eretz Israel) of Miracles,

This month, Israel celebrated one of its many biblical miracles, however this historical miracle continues till today. This is the holiday of Purim, mentioned in the book of Esther. The miracle is Israel's very existence, of which our enemies worldwide would love to see us simply disappear off the map of the world.  Actually, as I write this report, just a few hours ago there was another terror attack in our capital city of Jerusalem.
Children in Israel dress up in their favorite costume to celebrate The Victory Story of Purim.
Most of you know the popular scripture verse mentioned in this great story in Esther 4:14 which states, "And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?"

Speaking of royalty and children, this month with one of our beloved sponsors, Israel Benevolence Fund, we visited two local orphanages to discuss and get insight on how to better bless and practically help the hundreds of children that are housed in these institutions. Abundant Bread of Salvation, received a special gift that enabled us to purchase 75 brand new 3D bed sets for these precious ones to show them that they are cared for and NOT forgotten. Halleluyah! Before this, I never knew there was such a thing as 3D bed sets. Who would have ever thought of such things when Israel became a nation 68 years ago?
This month we also received our new shipment of over 4 tons of food items. On top of all of our regular weekly activities of food packet distribution to over 400 poor and needy families as well as the soup kitchenwe are happy to share the short version of the humanitarian Biblical excursion that we did with 50 Holocaust Survivors from Netanya. By bus, we took them to Tiberias and one by one our volunteers helped them to enter the boat where we set sail on the Sea of Galilee for an hour explanation of their Biblical surroundings including the history of the Jewish Messiah Yeshua-Jesus. 

We also had a time of music, dancing with the Survivors on the boat and giving them special hand knitted quilts that were brought by special friends from America. For most of these Holocaust survivors, it was their first time ever seeing the Sea of Galilee with their own eyes. How awesome is that! 
We then got all 50 of them back on the bus and traveled to the top of Tiberias, where my soup kitchen cook had prepared all day making them a royal five course sit down meal at a private home with a million dollar view of the whole Sea of Galilee. We invited a special musician from Jerusalem who played joyous songs that brought forth more dancing and eternal joy. Special speeches, prayers and blessings were shared that moved these souls to tears. I could go on forever about the blessings from this awesome day.

You, YES, you!  We could not do all the above mentioned, without YOUR prayers and financial support and of course every single volunteer matters. Please come and volunteer and if you can't, please continue to pray and give like you've never given before, for "Such a time as this!" Israel's physical and spiritual salvation is at hand.

Shalom, dear partner, from the beautiful winter wonder land of Israel,

This last month has been a great month of God pouring out physical rain upon the physical land of Israel.  It is refreshing and a reminder of God's true blessing upon us, even when we do not deserve it.  It is amazing to see that during our weekly dry food bag distribution, it is pouring rain, and yet this doesn't keep the over 350 poor and needy people from coming to receive their free food parcels, clothes, and the warm love of God that breathes new life into their dry bones.
The Holocaust survivors, war veterans, widows and single mothers that have come to the soup kitchen before they are half-way through their meal are already asking, "When will be the next date we will have this divine meal again?"  We ask them for their patience as there are other groups we invite that are also asking the same question, "When will it be our turn?"  Please pray that God continue to work through us as we serve up these delicious, five-star meals as well as His "eternal" food that is felt by all present.
Special Order Eye Glasses: Matthew 13:16 "Blessed are your eyes because they see."
This last month we were able to distribute more eyeglasses to the poor and needy as well as to the survivors.  They were a special order from America.  Our recipients were so surprised, happy and blessed as they could see properly again! We even checked their vision with a special eye chart with John 3:16 written in Russian in big letters as well as other scriptures, that shared the Good News, that were written in small and smaller words line-by-line just like a regular eye chart.  As they would read, we could see even their eyes would light up as they read these words of life and salvation.  Amen!  Please pray that their blinders would truly be removed by the power of His Ruach Ha Kodesh, (the Holy Spirit).

The below pictures are just a few of the recipients that left our distribution center with a more CLEAR VISION of God's love for them.  Halleluyah!
A Fulfillment of Biblical Prophecy:
One of the special groups that we serve in our Dry Food Bag Distribution Center is new immigrants in Israel, up to 18 months.  Every month, we are receiving more and more.  Recently, one of our new recipients named Sara, a young woman, only in Israel 3 weeks, asked us to pray for her as she is all alone in Israel.  Another recipient was a widow that recently lost her mother.  Our team was able to embrace her and pray for her grieving process that she shared with us.  I, myself, cried with her as I felt her pain.  This is what we call healing Biblical prophecy in action.  Amen!

Romans 8:37, says, "No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us".  This scripture is a constant reminder to our team at Abundant Bread of Salvation of how important the pure and true love of God can cover a multitude of sins and change the lives of these people for eternity.
Lastly, on my birthday this month I was able have a special celebration meal on the Mediterranean Sea beach of Netanya with the leaders of the Ghetto Holocaust Survivors Association.  What an honor to share my special day with these precious souls.
As our team is poured out for Him to our Jewish People, please continue to pour out your prayers and financial blessings to continue this precious work of God.

Newsletter January 2017

Today, is International Holocaust Remembrance Day.  I just got off the phone with Nachum, the main leader of the Netanya Branch of Holocaust Survivors, the biggest branch in Israel.  I told him how much we love him and his people and that not only will we 
NEVER FORGET, but that WE ARE COMMITTED, to practically support and assist them in every way possible in this new year. Help us to remind EVERYONE to remember, by taking a picture of yourself holding a sign with the words, "WE REMEMBER" and posting it on ours and your Facebook Page, Twitter and/or Instagram.

Shalom Dear Partner in Messiah,

Happy New Year 2017!  What a Mighty God we serve!  We praise Him for bringing us THROUGH, 2016 with many trials, fires, and heart-breaking challenges.  We are commanded to praise Him and love Him first, even in the most difficult of circumstances, so this, we will do at Abundant Bread of Salvation.  As we press forward in this New Year, we will continue to shine His love and light through every physical act of kindness, prayer, hug, and even hold the hands and cry with the hundreds of needy people that walk through our doors. 
Without your prayers and support, these precious people would never have the hope that we provide for them in our facility with basic food, clothes, and the eternal love of God.
In the Book of Revelation 12:11 it says, "And they have conquered him, (Satan) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives, even unto death".
We all know that birth and death are a natural part of life and both are typically painful. Sometimes the pain is bittersweet and sometimes it brings great rejoicing.  Recently, we experienced both of these.  I will share two stories that are a direct result of the work of Abundant Bread of Salvation.
The first story is about a young Israeli woman.  A couple of years ago she somehow found our phone number and called us in the middle of the night asking if it would be possible to rescue her out of a home that she was taken prisoner as a sex slave.  Long story short, the impossible became possible with lots of prayer, wisdom and the help of God.  That same week, we met with her in a coffee shop, shared the Good News with her and she accepted her Messiah as Lord.  Recently, however, we received another phone call about her.  With this phone call we were sadly told that she was found dead of an unknown cause in her home and the funeral was going to be the next day and they requested our presence if possible.  I was able to attend the funeral and everyone asked from where I knew her.  I was able to share about the great spiritual encouragement I was able to be to her and was also able to pray words of comfort over her mother and father at her memorial.  We thank God for her eternal salvation and the ability to bring light into the darkness.  We dedicate this prayer letter of new beginnings to the memory of Anabella.  CLICK HERE, to help give your support, so that we can help others like Anabella.  Sadly, there are many more like her.
The second story, although quite different, is about a Russian elderly man who is over 90 years old.  He is the leader of the Belorussian group that we practically serve and bless, over 100 of his people.  This man is very active, strong-willed and an aggressive personality; not always easy to deal with  We know HOWEVER, that no one is impossible for God to reach.  I once was one of those people myself.  Recently, one of our Russian Jewish believer volunteers asked him if he would like a home visit.  To our surprise, he welcomed the visit, he heard the Good News and accepted Messiah into his ripe, old-aged heart. Halleluyah!  Our volunteer reported to me that on his own initiative, he continued to read God's Word for the next couple hours and was rejoicing to know that he now has eternal Life.  My friends, what a way to start off the New Year, with new hearts, eternal life and rejoicing, even in the midst of the storms.  It's these stories that make what we do ALL,worth it!
Since writing this newsletter, the women below, who is his girl friend has also excepted Messiah into her heart as well at a local Bible study that we sponsor.   Halleluyah!!
I don't know about you, but our team is more motivated than ever to proclaim the Good News and practically see even more lives changed as we continue our soup kitchen and distribution center activities to over 500 poor and needy people every month.  Our Holocaust survivors are dying daily.  The set time is now, to comfort our people.
Thank you again for your continued prayers, financial support and volunteerism in 2017.

At the end of the day and now more so at the end of the year, it makes it ALL, worthwhile! For this we praise Adonai and we thank YOU, for all your prayers and support!
Rejoice with our team, by reading the below few examples that explain just the tip of the iceberg of what was physically done this past year through your generous support, prayers and the love of God. Halleluyah - Glory to God!

Highlights 2016:
Y Hundreds of our Jewish people were tangibly blessed, prayed for at their own request and many giving their hearts and lives to their Lord, King and Messiah for eternity.  Halleluyah!
Y By His grace, we gave away over 6000 packed bags of food, (roughly 70 tons), at our headquarters distribution center in Netanya. Each bag filled with over 21 products. Serving at over 400 families monthly.  Click here now to give your one time - End of The Year Tax deduction.
Y By His grace, we hired a professional cook for our weekly soup kitchen and had hundreds of volunteers serve alongside us, where each needy person received a home cooked sit down five course meal. At least 3800 hot meals served, as well as take home fresh bread, vegetables, fruits and many times take home meals to help them through the week. We also gave away over 30 tons of new and used clothes as well as much needed furniture. Click here now to give towards these HOT Meals.
Y By His grace, on roughly a dozen occasions, we visited two local orphanages doing prayer walks as well as providing sets of new blankets, shoes, school supplies, toys as well as clothes on many occasions to over 100 very needy orphans. We also started a new pioneering effort of taking the orphans on special organized trips on rented buses to Biblical sights for a time of refreshment and fun, as well interacting with Believers. On several occasions, the leaders of this Orthodox facility came to our headquarters to give us special cards and pictures made by the kids thanking us for our love, care and generosity. Click here NOW, to give to the orphans.
Y By His grace, we again had over half a dozen gatherings of Believers to do Royalty Meals with Holocaust Survivors, giving them an elegant meal in a Restaurant or banquet hall, along with concerts, dancing as well as sharing the life changing message of hope. Lives are changed forever.  
Y By His grace, we took a half a dozen organized bus trips to the Biblical sights on the shores of the Galilee, with poor and needy Immigrants, War Veterans, Holocaust survivors and refugees. A majority of these people had never seen the Sea of Galilee. 
Y Abundant Bread of Salvation, is on the rise as we increase our efforts and continue to find favor and work with our local city officials, social workers, and many organizations to bring practical and spiritual restoration to these Dry Bones and the Nation of Israel!
Zechariah 4:6 - "Not by might, nor by power, but by your spirit says the Lord!"
Thank you again for your sacrificial giving and prayers as we soar like eagles into 2017.

Happy New Year, in His eternal hope.

We are excited to share with you a brand new video clip, of a special Orthopedic Shoe Outreach, featuring the world renowned music of Lev Shelo, a group with a heart for the G-d of Israel.

November, 2016

Greetings from Israel and Abundant Bread of Salvation,

We want to start off this letter by thanking you for your sacrificial support and prayers.  It appears that many of you really know what it is to lay it all down for the sake of our Messiah and our Jewish people.  You have no idea how much this encourages us as a team to continue pressing on, to practically and spiritually bless the hundreds of poor and needy people we serve every month.

Give your biggest End-of-The Year donation so we can continue to bless our Jewish People and see their physical and spiritual restoration like never before! CLICK HERE.

Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement), and Sukkot (The Feast of Tabernacles) is over.  For most of our Jewish people, repentance is now a thing of the past and the remembrance of their wandering in the wilderness is over.  We at Abundant Bread of Salvation continue in lightening the struggle of poverty and hopelessness that our people deal with on a daily basis where most non-profits mainly focus their efforts on helping during the holidays.  With your help, we can stand with these precious ones in practical support 365 days a year.
In Leviticus 16:24, it says "He shall bathe his body with water in a holy place, put on his clothes and come forth offering his burnt offering and the burnt offering of his people and make atonement for himself and for the people."  We thank God for His precious sacrifice for us and our Jewish people, once and for all.

Exciting News and praise report:

We recently started to help a local Bible-based drug and alcohol rehabilitation center every month with $250 U.S. dollars worth of food products to the dozens of addicted and homeless that they take in off the streets. They several times a week go out to the streets and bring homeless and hopeless men and women back to a spirit filled and safe refuge.
Please, we need your generous support in order to be able to continue this monthly assistance that is dire.  There is so much more we can do to give hope - CLICK HERE

Abundant Bread of Salvation gives with all of its soul:

Another amazing outreach happened that included giving over 100 brand new orthopedic shoes to poor, elderly Jewish immigrants, war veterans and Holocaust survivors.  This was not just your ordinary giving of a box of shoes and saying "God bless you"!  With the help of our local volunteers we made a full day event that yielded the opportunity to invite 15 people each hour into our headquarters office, sitting them down five at a time, taking off their old shoes and fitting their weary feet with new comfortable orthopedic shoes!  Before putting the new shoes on their feet, we literally anointed the soles of their shoes.  After putting the shoes on, with the laying on of hands we prayed over these precious souls, that God would heal, restore and give them His eternal peace.  You cannot even imagine the joy and smiles and some of them even with tears in their eyes telling us how much they appreciate us and how they felt the presence and love of God.  Praise Adonai!  We then offered them coffee, tea and some snacks as they made their way out the door with a whole new pep in their step.  We are so thankful to God for this opportunity to literally comfort our people from head to toe.  In Psalm 23:3, it talks about how He refreshes our soul and Isaiah 40:31 says, "They will run and not grow weary.  They will walk and not be faint."  Amen!

This was an amazing day of heart and soul, poured out to our dear poor and need Jewish people.

Please continue to pray for the refreshing of souls and give like you've never given before, so that we can continue to practically and spiritually provide for the growing needs of our community here in Israel.  The time is now and the time is short!

Please lift our team up in your daily prayers.
