Shalom Dear Ones and Happy BIRTHDAY,

As you read this, you are thinking, "It's not my birthday?" Well, you're probably correct; however, this birthday is SO prophectically significant, that if it did not happen, then I would not be writing this letter and most likely Abundant Bread of Salvation would not have ever come into existence!

My friends this month we have celebrated Israel's 70th year of existence since her re-birth as a Jewish State for the people in their own homeland. How awesome is this!! All this happened after praying and remembering all of Israel's fallen soldiers and any of those injured in terror attacks against the Jewish people.
Happy Birthday blessings to Israel!
Isaiah 66:8 says, " Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment?" Seventy years later, may I proclaim a resounding, "YES!!"

This month we have had non-stop activity, breathing new life into "these dry bones" in the most practical ways for our poor and needy Jewish People. Besides our weekly food bag distribution to at least 400 people each month and soup kitchens, we were able to do two different Biblical excursions for our Holocaust survivors. One busload of Holocaust survivors went to Tiberias to experience the Biblical historical sites, while another busload, with the help of, (Messianic Dance Camps International), was taken to Tel-Aviv to visit the Historical Independence Hall Museum, where David Ben-Gurion declared Israel as the state of the Jewish people. Each of these trips also included a delightful full meal leaving them physically and spiritually full for eternity!

H  a  l  l  e  l  u  y  a  h  !

Magdala Biblical Site-Oldest Synagogue of Yeshua Discovered


Boat Trip on the Sea of Galilee-Dancing and Worship with Survivors


Independence Hall-Were Ben Gurion Declared Israel's Independence-70+ years ago!

We are happy to say that the ears and souls of 100 Holocaust survivors were also filled with the largest concert to date, with a group of believers from America, roughly 130 professional choir singers, at an outstanding live performance. This event sent chills up your spiritual spine! These survivors' lives were hugely impacted, as "living waters" were poured out upon them. We also were able to provide them with a delightful meal before the concert, as well as great interaction with the choir as they helped serve them the meal in the most royal and honoring way.

Abundant Bread of Salvation connects, 
Body, Mind, Soul and Spirit!
Recently we were also able to have a free hair cut clinic as well as a couple of weeks of providing pedicure and manicure clinics for the poor and needy we serve. Not only did they receive individual love and care, they were also soothed with essential oils as well as each person prayed for and blessed with anointing oil directly applied to the souls of their weary feet! Could they ask for more? Special thanks to our friend and volunteer Olivia, for being obedient to the call!


Holocaust Memorial Day!
I was able to personally attend two Holocaust memorial ceremonies, one that was sponsored by the City of Netanya, and another one sadly that was a private gathering of family members of a dear Holocaust survivor that I have weekly visited in their home for over 6 months. He passed away during this very significant and painful time in Israel's history. We will remember him forever and continue to visit his widowed wife. My friends, many seeds were planted here and without your support financially, in prayer as well as the many volunteers, we could not do this precious life changing work. Thank you so much for standing with us in giving your largest donation today, while these precious ones are still living and breathing.


Why Poland?
By faith, I am stepping forward into one of the most painful aspects of the ministry that I do. As you receive and read this letter, I will most likely be walking through the remains of Adolf Hitler's planned and implemented concentration death camps. Being that I am the grandson of Polish decent, this makes the trip incredibly significant, because my grandfather escaped the holocaust before it happened and came to Israel in the early 1930's as a pioneer Zionist and helped to establish a kibbutz near Jerusalem's capital for several years before joining his brother in New York, America.

Please pray that I be a light in the dark during this challenging ministry trip. Talk about desiring to see the "dry bones" come back to life; this is the place! Thank you again for your sacrificial prayers and giving. May we ALWAYS celebrate Israel's birthday and all of her accomplishments! Am Israel Chai!

H A P P Y   P A S S O V E R
(FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD), 
FROM ABUNDANT BREAD OF SALVATION!



March 2018

Shalom and Passover Greetings from Israel!

We want to bless you during this very prophetic Biblical season of The Feast of Unleavened Bread; Pesach or Passover. During this time, there are a couple of popular sayings here in Israel; "Spring is here, Passover is coming" and "Next Year in Jerusalem". As you receive this letter, both of these will be fulfilled as I celebrate this solemn, communal, traditional meal in Israel's capitol city, Jerusalem. Abundant Bread of Salvation is all about proclaiming the sacrificial, spotless Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world as written in the ancient scriptures of Isaiah 53:7 and John 1:29. Every month, as we practically serve hundreds of our poor and needy Jewish people, they hear about the precious salvation that comes only through the blood of the Lamb.  Happy Passover to all our friends near and afar!

ALIYAH-Going up to the Mountain of the Lord

This is also a very special and prophetic season for me, personally.  21 years ago this month, the Lord called me to make aliyah (immigrate to Israel from Los Angeles, California). Halleluyah! Do you think the Lord may have had something up His sleeve for me to do here?  It's all HIS-tory!

New Shoes For Passover Changes Souls
Orphan feet adopted! A great deed that Abundant Bread of Salvation was able to help fulfill this Passover (called the Holiday of Freedom), was the purchase of shoes for all of the over 70 girls. These girls inhabit a local orphanage that we often help as well as do prayer walks with many believer groups that come to visit us. We definitely see the hand of God work through us shining His light in this Ultra Orthodox Jewish institution.  Thank you!  We could not do this without your financial help.   Click HERE, to give to Orphanage projects.

Seminar for Believer Leaders at Yad V'Shem
Recently, I was invited, along with my co-worker, to a very special seminar at the worlds largest Holocaust survivor museum located right here in our front yard in Jerusalem.  This was a very special invitation to help spiritual leaders as well as leaders of organizations like Abundant Bread of Salvation to understand and get an insider's perspective of this most precious and sensitive subject of the Jewish people and world history, the Holocaust, concentration camps and the Ghetto.  We were given a private tour even to a special under ground room where donated artifacts are preserved from those who survived this atrocity and smuggled out from the death camps.  We were also educated on past and present anti-Semitism and how to recognize the difference between straight politics and blatant anti-Semitism.  It really was eye-opening for all of us and a great opportunity to meet many museum leaders and their sacrificial work at the museum.  
Am Israel Chai!   The People of Israel Live!  Halleluyah!

Being Chosen to Believe, is Being Called to Adoption
James 1:27 states, "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." Our Adopt-A-Holocaust Survivor Program is well underway, giving financial checks monthly to each survivor who has been adopted by a believer in Yeshua (Jesus) and has sent in their sponsorship.  We still have over 50 Survivors waiting to be adopted.  Will you please pray about being the next true believer, practicing pure religion, to adopt one or two survivors or share with others who can?  Please help while they are still with us.  As I write this, one of our precious survivors is in the hospital in intensive care. 

Proverbs 31:8-9 says,  "Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves and defend the rights of the poor and needy."  For Inquires on how to adopt, please email,  valery@abundantbread.com.

Brian and the Abundant Bread of Salvation Team want to thank you for all your prayers and support.

PRE-NEWSLETTER ANNOUNCEMENT!
HAPPY PURIM! HAPPY PURIM! HAPPY PURIM!
Esther 4:14
For if you fail to speak up now, relief and deliverance will come to the Jews from a different direction; but you and your father's family will perish. Who knows whether you didn't come into your royal position precisely for such a time as this."
PURIM 2018: The Jewish festival of Purim begins in Israel on Thursday evening, 1 March and will continue through sunset on 2 March. It's a celebration of redemption and a time of great merry-making as Jews throughout the world remember the deliverance from the hands of the wicked Haman, who tried to instigate the annihilation of the Jews of Persia. The Biblical Book of Esther, recited on this holiday by Jews throughout the world, tells the story of how the Jewish queen Esther and her uncle Mordechai saved the Persian Jewish community from destruction. Families and neighbors give gifts of sweets to each other, and many dress-up in costumes for festive events. A JOYFUL Purim from our Abundant Bread of Salvation staff members to friends near and far. Esther 8:16-17: The Jews had light and gladness and joy and honor. And in every province and in every city, wherever the king's command and his edict reached, there was gladness and joy among the Jews, a feast and a holiday. And many from the peoples of the country declared themselves Jews, for fear of the Jews had fallen on them.

Shalom Dear Lover of Israel and Her People,

We start this letter off by reminding you of how much our Lord and Messiah Yeshua-Jesus loves you.  In 1 Corinthians 13, it's all summed up in these words, "The greatest of these is love."  Also, John 15:13 says, "Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends."  Abundant Bread of Salvation is proud to have friends and financial partners as well as volunteers, like you.  We are also just as delighted to be serving every month many hundreds of poor and needy that we not only consider friends, but that we consider family in the style of our practical and spiritual service unto them.


This month I celebrated my birthday and was honored to do so for my second year now together with the local leaders of the Ghetto Survivors Association.  Not only did we enjoy a nice meal and fellowship together, but did it Mediterranean style at a restaurant on the beach front of Netanya. Another year older, wiser and richer in Yeshua.  Halleluyah!


Recently, the Red Sea was Parted at Israel's Ben Gurion Airport!
The Lord opened the doors for me by official invitation, by a City Worker of Netanya to join hands in welcoming a full plane-load of over 200 new Jewish Immigrants from Ukraine, to their prophetic homeland.  This was a most amazing experience and blessing to be the first person to receive these full families, singles, elderly, children and even many miniature dogs.  They were greeted with smiles, handshakes and hugs. I was even able to pray with several of them blessing them and welcoming them home.  We also gave them drinks, sandwiches and rejoiced with them with pictures, Davidic dance and signs saying,  ''Welcome to Israel," in three languages.  Several of them gave me their phone numbers and within a week we already connected them with practical assistance.  Halleluyah, they were hugely blessed!  My friends, this literally is a fulfillment of Ezekiel 37:14, which says, "I will put my spirit in you and you will live and I will settle you in your own land."   Praise Adonai!


Abundant Increase of Soup Being Served Up
We are delighted say that many more stomachs are happy and filled as we recently increased our soup kitchen activities. Each time, at least 40-50 people are served a five-course meal.  Our cook is amazing, as he does this task with such a heart of service unto our King and Redeemer to bless our people not just in Word, but in deed.  2 Kings 4:38 says, "Put the great pot on the fire and make soup for the sons of the prophets."



Treating Holocaust Survivors to a Royal Meal
We recently, again, treated over 100 Holocaust Survivors to what we call a Royalty Meal.  The banquet hall was filled from wall to wall with roughly 125 participants containing an awesome group of believers from Hawaii, loving on our dear precious sole Survivors from the Holocaust, with Hawaiian Spirit, even teaching them the traditional Hula dance.  We were also delighted to have world renowned Messianic Music Artist Carolyn Hyde from Heart of G-d, as well as Lori Kate Lowenhar, from Heart of Galilee, to crank up the Spirit of worship a few notches and bless us with a taste of heaven that not only feeds the physical soul, but the spirit as well, inviting the Survivors into a dance circle, watching all their fears, problems and horrific memories melt away.  Praise Adonai, again making memories for eternity!




PLEASE, ask us about our Adopt-a Survivor program or click here, that is now monthly, physically putting checks into their hands.  We have another 50 survivors that are desperately awaiting adoption by believers.  Ezekiel 37.



                               For Such a Time as This!  Esther 4:14

Precious friend of Abundant Bread of Salvation, 

man_praying_holding_bible.jpg
For our first prayer and praise letter of 2018, again we bestow our blessings for a Happy New Year! As we start this year we are very excited to share with you that the Israeli government has given Abundant Bread of Salvation a special recognition certificate for keeping all standards and requirements for 2017 and 2018. My friends, this does not come easy in Israel and for us it is a clear sign of the hand of the Lord upon what He has called us to do. Halleluyah! As we start this New Year, it makes ALL the challenges worthwhile! For this we praise Adonai and we thank YOU for all your prayers and support! 

Matthew 25:40 states, "THE King will reply, truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of Mine you did for Me." This should be a question we ask ourselves daily. What better time than now at the beginning of the year to give your most generous donation towards this expanding work and propel us forward abundantly for His Kingdom? 

Please rejoice with our team, by reading the below examples that explain just the tip of the iceberg of what was physically and spiritually done this past year through your generous support, prayers and the love of God. Halleluyah! Glory to God!

2017 Highlights: 
*By His grace, 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! 

*By His grace, we gave away over 6000 packed bags of food, (roughly 70 tons), at our headquarters distribution center in Netanya. Each bag was filled with over 25 products, serving at least over 400 families monthly

*By His grace, we had hundreds of volunteers serve alongside us at our soup kitchen 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 and many times take-home meals to help them through the week. We also gave away over 30 tons of new and used clothes and blankets as well as much needed furniture. 


*By His grace, on roughly a dozen occasions, we visited two local orphanages doing prayer walks with believers as well as provided finances in-hand, sets of new blankets, shoes, school supplies, toys as well as clothes on many occasions to over 100 very needy orphans. On several occasions, the leaders of this Orthodox facility came to our headquarters to give us letters, cards and pictures made by the kids thanking us for our love, care and generosity.    

*By His grace, we had at least 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 and sharing the life changing message of hope. Lives changed forever! 


*By His grace, we took half a dozen organized bus trips to Biblical sites such as the Sea of Galilee, Jerusalem, Mt. of Olives, Jaffa and The Holocaust Museum-Yad v'Shem with poor and needy immigrants, war veterans, Holocaust survivors and refugees. A majority of these people had never seen the Sea of Galilee. 


*By His grace, I hade three successful ministry trips in Europe and the USA, introducing our Adopt-A-Holocaust Survivor Program, having at least 50 Survivors financially adopted by believers as well as seeing the leader of the Holocaust Survivor organization accept Yeshua as his Messiah while speaking with me in California. Halleluyah! Please help another 50 Survivors that have just signed up to be adopted.  Email us now at: valery@abundantbread.com, for more information of how to adopt a Holocaust Survivor today, before it is to late!
