Shalom, Dear Partner in Yeshua-Jesus,
These days the Jewish People are celebrating one of the greatest feasts – Pesach (Passover). Happy Passover to you, as we celebrate Yeshua, our Sacrificial Passover Lamb that takes away the sins of the world.
On the 17th of April we had a wonderful trip with Holocaust Survivors to the Sea of Galilee. We regularly arrange trips to the Sea of Galilee – which has so much rich history and is the cradle of the Gospel of Yeshua. Recently, we had another busload of 50 Holocaust Survivors traveling to Tiberias. We prepared a wonderful program for them. First we visited the Galilee Experience, a theatre that shows a 40-minute film presenting thousands of years of history of the surrounding area, including the many signs and wonders that Yeshua performed there.
We also had a good friend share her testimony. She is a Messianic Jewish believer in Yeshua and a daughter of a Polish Holocaust Survivor. We also had a local Messianic Jewish music artist that sang wonderful worship songs for our precious Survivors. These Survivors were incredibly appreciative, engaged and open to all that the Spirit of the Lord was doing. Praise Adonai!
The next point of our trip was really amazing. We climbed on board a large boat and sailed across the Sea of Galilee for thirty minutes. They enjoyed their wonderful surroundings and songs by another local Messianic Music Artist, who led us in songs of praise, so much so, that the Survivors began to rise up and dance in a circle of light. It was electrifying.
After that we were invited to visit a wonderful Messianic Art Gallery on the hilltops of Tiberias. The gallery belongs to a family of believers who arranged a harp concert and shared their testimonies. We all were really excited to listen while enjoying a beautiful view of the Sea of Galilee in front of us. The Spirit moved powerfully.
The greatest testimony of the day! Our last five minutes on the bus, before dropping off the Survivors at the last of five stops. No human could have possibly planned what happened.
One of the survivors named Larisah sat down next to my Russian Jewish translator, Elizabeth. Elizabeth said to her, you see how much Brian is doing to give you a better quality life and to bring you closer to God in Yeshua? Larisah said, “I love Yeshua”. Then Elizabeth said, “Loving Him is not enough. We need to pray and invite Him into our heart.” Then Larisah said, “But I don’t know how!” Elizabeth said to her, “Would you like me to show you how?” She responded, “Yes, please”, and Elizabeth prayed with her right there on the bus to receive Yeshua in her heart, minutes before she got off the bus.
Another divine providence was that if I had not gotten out of my seat those last 10 minutes and moved across from Elizabeth, I’m not sure all this would have happened. Yeshua is the Master Planner.
Glory to God! She gave us her contact details and she said “Please come and visit anytime.” Amazing how this all happened in the last five minutes of the bus ride. Another miracle!
The below scripture is what was read to the Holocaust Survivors on the Sea of Galilee. For lack of space, please read this verse in full. Mark 4:35-41
“Quiet! Be still!” The wind subsided, and there was a dead calm. He said to them “Why are you afraid? Have you no trust even now?” But they were terrified and asked each other, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the waves obey Him?”
As we end, we cannot emphasize enough how important your prayers and support is. The time is at hand and what a better time than this to be living in the Promised Land and to see Yeshua go after even one lost sheep. Now that is what I call real delivery from bondage and slavery. Amen!
My friends, with Gods help and you standing with us, there is a lot more fruit to come.
Lots of appreciation and prayers from, Brian and The Abundant Bread of Salvation Team
