Shalom Haverim! (Hello Friends!)

Giving Thanks!

November has arrived! It is time to give thanks to God for all of His blessings! Thanksgiving Day is the main time when most people give thanks, but the Scriptures tell us that the will of God is for us to give thanks in everything! Please join with me in pausing to give thanks to God! Here are some of the things for which I am giving thanks this year!

I thank God for my recovery from surgery and the complications which followed. I feel much better and believe that I am becoming much healthier! The Lord has helped me to recover from a condition which was life shortening and to make strides to being healthy, again!

I am thankful for my wife, Kim, who has been by my side during this year! Without her, I would not have survived this year- physically, mentally, spiritually or financially! And she has been by my side for almost 30 years! (Our 30th anniversary is in January! We were so young and naïve! But, I digress!)

I am thankful that the Lord has helped and provided so that over $9,000.00 worth of medical bills which have passed through our home mailbox have been satisfied! He has given us favor in negotiation, caused insurance companies to cover things which might not usually be covered, caused the timing of how things were processed to be beneficial to us, moved upon the hearts of medical providers to write off balances of their own free will and provided miraculously so that we could make faithful and on-time payments!

I am thankful for new family! This year we have met and fallen in love with our son’s “birth family”! God has brought us together and it is amazing! The love of God flows between us and has made us friends as well as family! We plan to spend Thanksgiving with them, sitting around the same table enjoying a moving time of giving thanks to God!

I am thankful that this year I have learned that blessings do not depend upon the comfort of our surroundings or the convenience of our circumstances! They are totally dependent upon His goodness and His working on our behalf! Thanks be to God for all that He has done for us in this year!

I am also thankful to be a part of Rock of Israel Ministries; spreading the Good News that Jesus is the Jewish Messiah! November marks the beginning of our sixth year with the ministry! This past year, Rock of Israel distributed over 77,000 pieces of literature. They were given out hand to hand, face to face, one at a time! What a joy it is to spread the Good News!

In October, I attended the Rock of Israel Staff Conference in the Cincinnati area. It was a wonderful time of fellowship, planning, and refreshing as we met together to plan for the upcoming year. There is much to do and many opportunities to share the Good News in 2012! We would love for you to be a part of one of our outreaches this coming year!

Our evangelism schedule for 2012 has been announced! We will need volunteers for each of our outreaches… If you can make a five day commitment and think that you would be interested in one of our outreaches, please contact me or the Rock of Israel offices.

November promises to be a busy time for us! We have services the last three weekends of this month and look forward to ministering the Word of God in Louisiana and Arkansas! We also have some services scheduled for the month of December, a time when most itinerate ministers find it difficult to keep busy! Ah! Another reason to be thankful!

Jewish Vocabulary!
Mishpacha” is the Hebrew word for “family“! Holidays are made for family! May you be blessed with a wonderful time of togetherness with your “mishpacha” this Thanksgiving!
