Happy New Year, friends! I hope 2023 is off to a great start for you.
As many of you know, the February 2023 EXPERIENCE ISRAEL TOUR launches in just a few weeks! I’m excited to host 26 special guests from 6 US states, Canada and the UK on a once-in-a-lifetime journey to the Holy Land. We have an exciting itinerary lined up, including experiencing many things other tours don’t! Follow us here as we prepare for the journey, then as we tour. There will be daily posts live from Israel February 17 – March 1!
We partner with One for Israel, an incredible ministry based in Natanya, Israel. Besides coordinating tours, OFI is Israel’s cutting edge ministry when it comes to reaching ALL of Israel with the Gospel of Yeshua (Jesus)! That includes Jews, Arabs, Palestinians and other people groups who call Israel home.
One for Israel reaches out in many different ways, but they have captured the attention of Israelis primarily via their digital presence. In a land where electronic devices are more prevalent than anywhere else in the world, OFI offers the most robust digital media platforms that transport the Good News of Jesus Christ to Israelis and others around the world. From 50 million views of their testimonial videos (I Met Messiah) to informative podcasts, to online courses, to hundreds of educational and special interest articles, the Gospel goes out!
Many know One for Israel as a ministry primarily to Jews, but few realize how prevalent their ministry is to Arabs. It is absolutely fascinating to hear how the Lord Himself has touched Arab Muslims. Many secretly follow OFI and often become believers in Jesus, despite persecution from their own families. Check out the examples here, as well as a podcast detailing OFI’s first Arab staff members. Enjoy…and please pray for Muslim people throughout the Middle East. May they, too, be exposed to the life-giving teaching of One for Israel.
Check back throughout this week, as I’ve got two short series lined up to point us in the right direction for the new year, and to examine the new Netanyahu government! Stay tuned!
