Ministry to the Jew 1st: Prayer & Praise
This past year has been exciting as the Lord has opened up new doors and kept open other doors to share the Good News of Messiah “to the Jew first and also to the Gentile!” Here are a few of the many reasons we have for praising the Lord:
Blessings from 2014:
- Toward the end of 2013, in Beersheva, Israel, Sam was a guest speaker at the Negev Conference. There were many Israelis who came to faith; praise the Lord!
- In January, 2014, Sam conducted a five-day seminar on congregational planting at the Israel College of the Bible. Miriam taught a one-day women’s conference in Petah Tikvah.
- In northern Israel, the Nadlers assisted with a new congregation led by Moshe and Batel.
- Throughout 2014, Sam conducted weekly visits to churches to share the Good News and saw many people accept Yeshua into their lives. There is a growing interest in the Body of Messiah to bring the Good News to the Jewish people.
- The 2014 Southeast Messianic Men’s Conference was held at Lake Junaluska, NC, over Labor Day weekend.
- Throughout 2014, Miriam has been invited to be a guest speaker at churches as well as at conferences.
- In February, Miriam spoke at Beth Zion’s Women’s Retreat.
- In January 2015, Miriam will be the Keynote speaker at a conference for women missionaries to the Jewish people. She is meeting with many women to share Messiah, disciple them in the faith, and encourage them in their godly walk and service.
- 2014 saw continual development of new congregation plants in Columbia, SC, Monroe, NC, Roanoke, VA, and Northern California.
- In February, 2014, Sam and Miriam conducted the East Coast of Florida Planters Conference.
- In June, 2014, they held a Growing Healthy Messianic Congregations Conference in Boston, MA.
- From February through April 2014, at least 24 people came to Messiah through Passover Seder outreaches.
- In April, 2014, Sam’s New DVD Series, ” Redeemed – Seeing the Messiah in the Book of Ruth,” was completed and published resulting in a multitude of radio interviews with Sam throughout the US.
Prayer for 2015-2016:
- A follow-up book to “Planting Healthy Messianic Congregations,” to be used in future Conferences.
- Another new book, “Messianic Marriage Matters,” to be used in congregation planting, will hopefully be coming out some time in 2015. We need stronger marriages and families to reach the greater Jewish community family by family. Please pray with us as we would like to see both of these books finished and published in the upcoming year.
- Throughout 2015, Sam will be training, coaching and assisting new planters on-site and through Skype meetings. Miriam will be teaching, encouraging, and reaching out to the wives of these young leaders and new planters.
