Dear Faithful Friend,
For the past five years Zion's Glory has partnered with Revive Israel to help establish a place where young Israelis can come and mature in the Lord.
Early on in our experience in Israel, we realized that when Israelis received Yeshua there was a desperate need for something more intensive, in addition to just attending a congregation.
Israelis know almost nothing of Yeshua or the wonderful Gospel that he brought. Historically they have been cut off and separated from Yeshua. The very church that was called to love them instead became Israel's persecutor. Throughout history those that bore the name of Jesus became the very ones who forced Jews to convert, expelled them from their nations and ultimately murdered them for being Jewish. Because of this terrible past, it is no surprise that there is a historic barrier of fear and misunderstanding separating Israel from their wonderful Messiah.
It is into this challenging reality that Zion's Glory came to work over thirteen years ago. In addition to helping to raise up and pastor two congregations, previously in Tel Aviv and now in Jerusalem, we are also a part of the Revive Israel team where we serve in senior leadership. In addition to our daily work as senior pastors in Ahavat Yeshua, we spend the first several hours of most days worshiping, ministering and interceding with a group of native born Israelis at Revive Israel. We counsel them, we teach them and we pour our lives into them to help ensure that they are transformed into mighty men and women of God.
In a few weeks we will be starting our three month, live-in discipleship program which is being led by young Israelis, who have been discipled through the program and now are on staff.
Each month Zion's Glory sows financially into Revive Israel to help achieve our common goals of establishing a generation of powerful Israeli leaders who will help ensure the explosion of the Gospel here in Israel.
This month we ask you to please consider giving into these goals and purposes of Zion's Glory. The money that you give will be invested on the ground here in Israel and your generosity will help to bless the Congregation Ahavat Yeshua, Revive Israel and the many Israelis that we are touching every day.
We thank you for your partnership in this great work.
We send you our love from Zion,
