Dear Praying Partners:

 

Thank you for all who are praying and supporting us.

September 16 this year will be the 48th anniversary of the church in Jerusalem. The year 2012 will be the Jubile year. What is the jubile year? Lev. 25:8-10, 12

8: And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven abbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years. 9: Then shalt thou cause the trumpet of the jubile to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month, in the day of atonement shall ye make the trumpet sound throughout all your land. 10: And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.
12:
For it is the jubile; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field.

God's willing.

If you like to attend the 50th anniversary of the church please tell us to make arrangements. There will be five weeks of meetings this year. We would like every pastor of the supporting churches to be able to speak once. The dates of these weeks are not yet assigned with the exception of the week Sept. 9-16, 2012. If one time in the history of the church you were a supporter you will be included in the invitation. For a quick contact use the email:

I came as a missionary to Jerusalem on the 16th of February 1962. The church was organized on the 16th of September 1962. In these years many were saved and called to preach and now are in many countries preaching the Lord Jesus Christ. On the 24th of  February, the church with the help of three preachers from the U.S., ordained Abdallah Khoury as a preacher and now he is assistant pastor of the church.

Last year we printed two tracts and the competition. We printed of each tract and the competition twelve thousand and we send them out. The results were that we had received 8 persons telling us that they have accepted Christ as their savior. Last month in the church we had three persons that accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their savior.

Every year we send deferent tracts, so when I received a letter from a person signing a tract saying he have accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal savior I rejoiced because this tract was send to him three years ago.

This year we printed 40,000 tracts and 40,000 of the competition. The day we received the tracts, we send out 9,500 tracts with the competition. We will be sending out what we printed until we send them all. Now what we need is to keep, keep, and keep praying that the Lord will work in the heart of the people that will receive it, and those who will read it so that they accept the Lord Jesus Christ.

We do not only send out tracts, we also go out and witness and show the people how to be saved. We witness to Muslims, Catholics, Jews, Greek Orthodox, and Druze that is Unitarians.

Keep praying for us to be used to win soul.
