"Our soldiers met the Holy Spirit there, saw miracles, received God's Word and heard prophecies."
 
 

"... but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." (Isaiah 40:31)

The Eagle Project was created for Messianic congregations in Israel, to serve young adults who have completed their service in the Israel Defense Forces. This program also aims to establish relationships and build bridges between believers in Israel and Norway.

Our hope is that God will use the project to build up His next generation in our communities. We trust to see fruit and for the young participants to make a strong connection with the youth abroad and to serve the goals of our God together.

The Plan

The idea was to bless each participant - spirit, soul and body through: discipleship, rest, renewal, hiking, a young adults conference, worship, sharing testimonies, experiencing the Holy Spirit and exploring God's leading in their lives.

Norwegian Report:

Øyvind Furnes, Norway: "The Eagle Project came straight into our vision of building relationships between Gentile and Jewish believers. It has been a great privilege and an answer to our prayers. We met open doors everywhere we contacted people to join in. May God bless you all, and we are excited about future opportunities."

The Results

This summer eight young adults participated in the program for one month. We were warmly welcomed and received great support from the local believers. We met God's servants, God's creation and the Holy Spirit. Through our time together a strong bridge was built between Israeli and Norwegian congregations.

Our Journey Step by Step:

Week 1: Fellowship; stayed with families in Oslo and Bergen, Norway.

Week 2: Lived in communes together with local young believers; Bible study, worship, prayer and hiking.

Week 3: Hiked to one of the most beautiful places in Norway and went on a 2-day road trip to the north. Met with local believers at Vaksvika and attended services with military testimonies and Messianic worship.

Week 4: Took part in a 5-day international youth conference; our soldiers met the Holy Spirit there, saw miracles, received God's Word and heard prophesies. Together with a hundred young believers, we worshiped our God and learned to be guided by Him.

The Next Step

God has blessed this project, and we believe that He will make possible future gatherings of young adults from Israel and Norway. Our vision is to open this program to all Messianic congregations in Israel to bless ex IDF soldiers, beginning in 2016.

This article filled my heart to see the compassion that is extended to the IDF soldiers. It is a tremendous blessing to see our young adults come together and study the Holy Writ along with intense fellowship. Blessed be Yeshua who is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all we ask or think.
