There is too much to tell. We have had a most exceptional week and one experience has folded in on another until our thoughts are jumbled and full to overflowing. From a magnificent day in the old city touring ‘new’ tunnels and seeing extremely old stones with history all over them to meeting ‘new’ friends in Yeshua and observing again and again how G-d puts together people for His purpose. After meeting a Christian archeologist it looks like we will be spending a day digging at an archeological dig. Steve is pumped and the kids will have a blast!
Finally we have returned to Netanya. Aaaah, sweet Netanya, much fewer people and we will have our first quiet Shabbat.( Last week we fed and feasted in Yeshua’s love with 20 others) How I soak in the nearly constant ocean breeze and the hot sunshine. Our devotions take on new depth as we sit on the deck and rest in Gods wonderful provision for us.
We arrived late and were ready to sleep deeply only to find the refrigerator had stopped working and all our ‘planned’ meals were now garbage! It felt so icky and hard! We have had other appliances fail here and to call the owner each time has its own burdens attached. But Steve and Liam came to the rescue and had it soon running again. So after a quick cleaning and filling of garbage bags we were back in business and off to needed sleep.
Having nearly a week here this time seems to have given us time and focus to dig deeper into school and prayer. As each new friend,or part of the 100 comes into view again we redouble our prayers, asking Holy Spirit to do what He so aptly does.
We have received scathing rebuke and warm embrace, one never knows how our sharing of Life will be received by these sabra (cactus) people. Listening to Papa and going only to those He directs us to is a lesson in grace and obedience. So many clammer at us, but fewer are being called by Yeshua. We pray for all and expect a crescendo of Life as the numbers increase. The music of heaven is constantly in our hearts and we laugh and share throughout the day together.
Thank you Papa for this blessed relief where we stretch out the intensity of Jerusalem and your work in your beloved people.
Looking forward to greater strength, refined hearing and more God appointments!
