Today was the teams last day in Israel. We started with a service at Revive Israel, for a time of prayer and worship. After an anointed time with the congregation we spent the rest of the day working at Yod Hashmona. The only messianic kibbutz in Israel where we have stayed the past few nights. We helped clean out old storage units and ground upkeep. It has been such a blessed trip and we can not wait to share the storys and blessing on our return.
Today was a much needed day of rest. We took most of the day to pause and reflect on what the Lord was showing us so far during the trip. We also spent time as a group encouraging each other and praying. We ended the day on Ben Yahuda Street which is full of life after the shabbot. Now it is time for bed as we have a full day tomorrow.
Wait on the Lord;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord! Psalm 27
Today we started off on the Mount of Olives and the Garden of Gethsemane ( the olive press) we read from Zechariah about how Jesus will return to the Mount of Olives and from Luke. We then went to the soup kitchen in an orthodox neighborhood of Jerusalem. One of our team members got to deliver food to a family member of a holocaust survivor, so cool. There were also many other opportunities for our team who worked in the dining room to show the warmth and love of the Lord. We worked for several hours preparing lunch and the Shabbat dinner. We then headed to the outdoor market for lunch. You really get to experience the excitement of everyone running last minute errands before the city rests for Shabbat. Then we headed to the King of Kings, the prayer watchtower where we prayed of the whole city and for our team. We ended the night with sweet fellowship at “Ha Miflaht” a refuge for the lone soldiers of the IDF (Israeli defense force). It was so much fun and both the soldiers and the team were greatly blessed and encouraged by the time together.
Today we started with the meeting with a coalition that aims to protect the unity of Jerusalem. After this we went Yad Vashem, the holocaust museum. We then headed to Ha Miflaht, a misintry for the lone soldiers of the IDF. Here we had a work day at the house cleaning and preparing a shabbot meal. The evening ended powerfully after dinner praying for healing our now dear friend Malka, Malka does not know the Lord YET but she did allow us to pray for healing as she has cancer and asked us to pray over her. Please continue to pray for healing and that Yeshua would make himself known to her!
