I will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonders.
I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.
My enemies turn back; they stumble and perish before you.

For you have upheld my right and my cause; you have sat on your throne, judging righteously. Psalm 9

The Lord gives us a blessed time with the refugees from the war zone near Gaza.
Beloved friends, shalom,grace, joy and much strength be with you!
We send you much love from Gilgal and pray that the Almighty God, who created heaven and earth and keeps them running, will bless you richly as you bless His Chosen People Israel.

We praise the Lord for He is good! Last night Jacob had an accident on his motorbike. A car ran into him as the driver wasn’t watching. The bike is totally broken and we cannot but thank God that He protected Jacob. His right leg is broken twice, just above the ankle, but that’s all. We know that God has sent His angels to protect him from being injured worse. Thank you so much for your prayers!

Thank you so much for all your encouraging letters and phone calls, for your love, prayer and financial help in this task the Lord entrusted in our hands. We are very encouraged seeing what He is doing in our midst. Some of our guests from the South (Sderot, Ashkelon, Nachal Oz...) had to go back home, others keep coming. Most of the time we have about 80 to 90 refugees from the war zone. Precious people! When they arrive they are shaking with fear after years of traumatic experiences with missiles falling in their area all the time. Finally they can rest and also hear the Word of God! We feel so privileged! The Lord has given us this beautiful house, Gilgal, and we have the opportunity to host them, to love them, to serve them and to share the Word of God with them! What more could we ask for?

It is as it was in the time of the Judges. Every time the Lord wanted to get the attention of His people, He sent the enemies. Today it is Hamas, which is a real threat to the people and makes them turn to their God for help. Finally many people pray and seek Him, who alone can help in a terrible situation like this. Please pray with us that each one, who came to find physical refuge in Gilgal, will find salvation in the Messiah of Israel!

Thank you so much, some of you responded to our last letter and help us in this great financial challenge. The Lord will bless you for your giving.

Please also pray for strength and wisdom, love and joy in our hearts that we might bring Him glory and honor in all our doing and be a real blessing to all those, whom the lord has sent us!

May we invite you to see the movie, Jacob made together with Guy? In a beautiful way it shows how the Lord has done - and is still doing - so many miracles in Trumpet. Please click here to see it. There you will also find a little clip about ministering to the poor, a project in which Jacob is helping a very good friend from his youth, who is a religious Jew, a wonderful man of God.

May we invite you for a special tour in Israel? The program for the Israel Tour in June and September 2009 is finally in the internet. You will find the link on the homepage, right on the top:

We send you our love and thankfulness,Jacob from the hospital and Elisheva
