Dear Friends of Israel:
Thank you so much for praying for Daniel and Amber’s transition in Israel. The house they initially found got tangled up in negotiations, so they shifted focus and found an even better option. As you can read and see below, the Lord has provided a wonderful place for their family. What is especially significant to me is how they pressed through during a time of passing through the dire straits. In a process that seemed to capture them and stop their advance, they were able to keep moving forward and squeeze through the narrow place! I am declaring that each of you will not loose faith in this season but will sidestep any blockade of the enemy and press your way into the best that the Lord has prepared for you.
On Monday, Daniel and Amber will be leaving for South Africa. In addition to having some family time, they will be meeting with key leaders in Johannesburg, including Apostle Pearl Kupe, to help strengthen relations between Israel and South Africa. When I was in South Africa earlier this year, Apostle Kupe helped facilitate our gathering and was such a blessing. I look forward to her being with us for our Head of the Year 5776 Celebration here in Corinth on September 17-20, 2015. I hope many of you will be able to join us.

We are so grateful to all of you who helped pray us through to our “new.” We got tied up in negotiations on a potential home for two weeks. God very quickly showed us the perfect home and now we are settled. This move took place during the dire straits. Our path was very narrow but we made it through! God has been so gracious to us in this process. We are still located in the center of Jerusalem but in a very quiet area where several families live. Most of Lily’s friends live with in a few blocks.
Below are a few pictures of the new home. You’ll notice the beautiful 800 year old olive tree and very old original stone work. Christian German Templars built this home. They sought to rebuild the Temple and built many homes in Jerusalem, and two key neighborhoods in Israel.
There is so much that we want to share with you about this home. We have slept here 6 nights and it’s a wonderful family place. The kids are sleeping better and later. The day we moved in, Elijah turned 2 years old. He is very big and strong, and a daddy’s boy all the way!
On Monday, Daniel, Lily, Elijah, and myself, will go to South Africa for the next two and half weeks. The first part of the trip we will stop at Kruger National Park for a family safari. We will share many pictures of that!
On August 13th we will be with Apostle Pearl Kupe in Johannesburg. She has organized a group of key leaders who will host us in an event where we will draw a greater connection between South Africa and Israel. We will hear what God is doing in South Africa for the first portion of the meeting and then Daniel and I will share for an hour about what we see God doing in Israel. Please pray for our family during our time of travel! Many in South Africa have a great love for Israel, and we believe God for a greater connection and deeper roots.
