Vision for Israel Update

Everyone Deserves a Seat at the Table


Dear Friends - The High Holidays are once again upon us. It’s a time for celebration and for preparation, for prayerful reflection and solemn atonement. It’s a time for heartfelt thanks, and yes, a whole lot of grocery shopping, too.

So many of us have been blessed with God’s bounty and indeed, we are rich in our faith. But not everyone has been blessed with the material means to observe these holy days with abundance.

Unfortunately there are many families in Israel who suffer from poverty and can’t afford to buy basic groceries for their holiday meals. Widows, orphans, holocaust survivors, lone soldiers, battered women, and many people of advanced age are all in desperate need of support this holiday season.

At Vision for Israel we are passionate in our commitment to provide for God’s children. That’s why we have distributed hundreds of grocery store gift cards to families in need just ahead of the holidays. This will help make it possible for them to put food on their tables and to celebrate with dignity. This
season more than 600 families have received financial aid totaling over $55,000.

 

And we could never do it without you. Partners like you are the reason we can reach so many people. Your donations are life - enriching and sometimes lifesaving. Wishing you and your loved ones Shana Tova -

Thank you for helping us change lives.

You shall open your hand wide to your brother, to your poor and your needy, in your land. Deuteronomy 15:11

MISSION COLOMBIA
November 2019


Dear Pastor Dan and Church Family,
Here at Mision Columbia one of our evangelistic impact strategies is to bring an experience of God’s love & power to needy and destitute communities (barrios) in ourcity. Parallel to the powerful message of preaching the message of Jesus, we bring social assistance in donations, groceries, gifts, clothes, toys, medical assistance, dental care, hair dressing, and recreational services.


This year we focused our efforts on Santa Cecilia, a neighborhood (barrio) embedded in the highest part of the hills that border the city of Bogata. We supported a work by Pastors that have graduated from our Bible training programs. They have been working with unprotected children, rescued from drugs, and vulnerable families in the sector.

At Mision Colombia we supported that good work by developing a massive evangelistic day and bringing social assistance to the community. We had over 350 members join us in the Gospel invasion of the sector. We saw many families being blessed, happy children, and more than 400 people received the message of salvation ! The love of God was evident and moving in the hearts of the “pueblo” in Santa Cecilia. We thank God for this wonderful experience and the spiritual harvest.


Yours for the Harvest,
John and Alba

Isa Bajalia

Missions

August, 2019

Greetings from Isa:


Thank you for contributing towards the next missions outreach in the Persian Gulf, and the Philippines. Our prayer is that you are abundantly blessed for helping to expand the Kingdom of God Globally.


Persian Gulf; We are excited about continued confirmed reports that large segments of the communities in this part of the World are receiving Jesus as their Savior. It is also an honor for me to be a part of the Ministry Team who will be in conferences in several Nations where it is well known that there is hostility towards the Gospel Message and Missionaries.


Southeast Asia; After a brief time in the Persian Gulf, Nancy and I will then travel to the Philippines where we will stay until we complete our assignment. Thank you for all of the clothing items and the vitamins that you so graciously provided for distribution among the families at the three outreach sites. Our goal is to be a support to the local Church, especially in the more primitive areas of Mindanao. We thank you because we are aware that none of this could ever happen without your help.


Encouragement - Such an amazing truth from God's Word. Galatians 5; 6 NLT, When we place our Faith in Christ Jesus there is no benefit in being circumcised or being uncircumcised, what is important is Faith expressing itself in Love. We have always been taught that our Faith can only work if we walk in love towards others. While I believe that this is true, we forget that it is not only how we love, but also how much HE loves us. It always takes my Faith to another level when I realize how much He loves me.


Thank you for praying for me as I run my race in missions. I still have my eyes on the prize!

Your brother, Isa

Kenneth Hagin Ministries Update
Rhema Graduates Worldwide


When we carry the mandate of teaching faith, hope, and love to the world, we are building foundations. Every Rhema graduate worldwide was trained with s strong foundation of faith to pursue God’s calling. It can’t happen any other way!


Jason and Diang Daugherty head up a Rhema campus in India. One time they had to find a new location for the Rhema campus in Shillong. That facility needed not only classroom space but also a place to house the students. The Daugherty’s faith foundation saw them through. They secured a new building and moved furniture into it. But then local authorities would not give them permission to use the building for a school. Jason said, “I told my wife, ‘We are teaching people to walk by faith. We learned by precept and example at Rhema, and we’re going to demonstrate the same thing. If our graduates are going to catch it, we have to live it.’ “ Permission was granted 30 minutes before orientation started!


The Lord started dealing with Walker and Haley Schurz in Zambia to build an evening school. Among the students is the Speaker of the House of Parliament. In 2017, one of their church members came to Kindle the Flame. During the conference Lynette Hagin prophesied that women in the audience would rise to high places of influence. Two months later the President of Zambia informed this church member that he was appointing her as a judge in the High Court of Zambia. God is reaching people of influence!
 

These are two of the thousands of stories we could tell. It is the fruit of your giving! Your faithfulness and dedication have brought this foundation of faith to nations. I had a dream of what’s happening now all over the world. But it didn’t happen right away. In 1980 I spoke it out by the Spirit of God. It wasn’t until 1999 that the first international Rhema campus started. It has been growing ever since. We have now graduated almost 85,000 students.


Yours in Christ,
Kenneth W. Hagin
