Middle Eastern hospitality is legendary,
biblical, and still in evidence. From his desert tent, Abraham entertained
the Lord as a guest (Genesis 18:1-14). When we moved into our apartment
sixteen years ago, our Israeli neighbor, whom we had never met, brought us
a tray of fresh Turkish coffee and sweet cakes to say "Welcome to the
Undoubtedly, you have your own tales of hospitality and warm welcomes in
new places. We would like to add to those experiences. Here's the
recipe that awaits our guests, this coming October 15-24:
- Bible-centered teaching on Israel, Yeshua, and the Last Days
- Worship and Intercession within the reborn communities of Jewish
- Sites and sights from both historic and modern Israel
- Bonding with Messianic congregational leaders and members who will be
travelling with the "tour" throughout the entire journey
- A taste of the classic traditions of the Middle East - both Jewish and
- Surprising personal encounters, leading to long term relationships
with fellow visitors from the nations and local Israeli believers
- Tenderly covering it all - Yeshua's love for His disciples
My appetite is being stimulated just thinking about the love feast God is
preparing for us this coming October. Since we are not so new at this
(Baruch HaBa 2013 is our sixth tour/conference), we have a good idea what
to expect. The ingredients I described above are not wishful thinking.
Rather, the consistent feedback we have received includes statements like
"This is unlike any other tour I've been on. It's personal and
enables you to become involved."
"The friendships we made with members of the tour from Asia, Europe and
Africa were worth pursuing even after we get home."
"We were amazed that the leaders were with us day in and day out, on the
buses, in spite of their very packed schedules."
"The cooperation between Tents of Mercy, Revive Israel and Tikkun
International is a refreshing example of God's servants sharing
their resources and covenant history."
According to Matthew 23:39, the Messiah will not return until He hears a
chorus of voices calling to Him from Israel at the end of the age:
"Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord." It is not for us
alone, as Israeli disciples, to call upon Yeshua. We need the strong,
devoted participation of all of our brothers and sisters in the nations,
to join us in interceding for Israel's salvation, world redemption,
and the return of our King.
To sum it up, I am truly excited to invite you to the Baruch HaBa 2013
Conference/Tour. Please pray earnestly about this extraordinary
opportunity to encounter the real Israel, while walking with us hand in
hand, through its highways and byways.
