We would like to share with you our experience with the first Eagle
"But those who hope in he 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
* Young adults international conference
* Participating in worship
* Sharing testimonies
* Experience of the Holy Spirit
* Next steps with GOD
The Eagle Project was created for Messianic congregations in Israel
to serve young adults who have completed their service in the Israel
Defence Forces. This program also aims to help 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 fruits and for the young participants
to make a strong connection to the youth abroad and to serve the goals of
our God together.
* This summer eight young adults participated in the program for one
* We had a very warm welcome and great support from the local believers.
* We met:
- God's children and servants
- God's creation
- The Holy Spirit
* A strong foundation to a great bridge was built between Israeli and
Oyvind Furnes - Norway: The Eagle Project came straight into
our vision of builiding 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 the future
Week 1: Fellowship; our youth were divided into a few groups; lived
with familes 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 the most famous place in Norway and made a 2-day
road trip to the north. Met with local believers at Vaksvika; fellowship
and services with military testimonies and messianic worship.
Week 4: International young adults encounter a great 5-day
conference; our soldiers met the Holy Spirit there, saw miracles, receieved
God's Word and heard prophecies. Together with a hundred young
believers, we worshiped our God and learned to be guided by Him. Had a
great time of worship, prayer, discipleship and fellowship.
God has blessed this project and we believe that we will open the gates
for a future activity for young adults from Israel and Norway.
Our vision is to make this program available for every Messianic
congregation in Israel to bless IDF ex-soldiers, beginning in 2016.
