A Blessed Holiday Season!
Happy Chanukah, Merry Christmas, and a Blessed New Year! to each one of you in the name of Yeshua our Messiah, the Light of the world!
This past year we have continued to see challenging situations both in Israel and in our region that remind us that there is a continual battle in this world, both physical and spiritual. Prayers for our families, brothers and sisters in the Lord, our nation, and the nations of the Middle East are continually on our lips as we remember the Creator and sustainer of our lives. Our hope is in the LORD our God, as the psalmist proclaimed:
I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; from where shall my help come? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
He will not allow your foot to slip; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. – Psalm 121:1-4
We want to use this opportunity of the approaching holidays to greet and thank each one of you that has faithfully stood with us in prayer and financial giving throughout this past year. It is through this unity in Christ that the Lord anoints our calling and ministry to His glory.
We are thankful for another year in which we could openly proclaim and provide the Living Word of God, the Light of the World in Israel. “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.” (Isaiah 40:8).
By the grace of God we produced and distributed several diglot Bibles this year; Hebrew-Russian, Hebrew-Arabic, and Hebrew–English have already been a blessing to many people. We also have sent to print and are eagerly awaiting the arrival of our New Hebrew French Diglot Bible to bless new French immigrants who are escaping the growing anti-Semitism in France! For those of you who are interested, these products and more are also available through our website: Bible Society Products
Another huge milestone project was the completion of the whole Hebrew Bible in Audio, making the word of God available to many more people, including the visually impaired. We also launched a new website in Hebrew, Russian, Arabic and English!!! We are glad that it is already being a blessing for many. You are invited to enjoy and share this website: http://www.haktuvim.com
We are grateful for our ministry and by the grace of God, desire to do our best to faithfully proclaim and provide the Word of God to people who seek the truth and hunger for meaning in their lives. We invite you to read more about the projects for the coming year and to partner with us: Bible Society Projects
Please continue to keep us in your prayers and hearts.
