SUKKOT; Feast of Tabernacles

Following our time in SE Ukraine and Odessa, we are now ministering in Kyiv among Jewish homes during the Feast of Sukkot (Lev. 23: 39-44). One 72 yr. old Jewish man (not pictured) prayed to receive Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) today!  It is super exciting for us because his heart was so open to begin this journey of faith.

The photo above is in a Jewish couple's home we visited here recently. The husband has come to several services at the congregation, but has physical weakness and fatigue lately. Please pray for David to feel stronger to be able to attend special event services and grow in his faith. Messiah's compassion served them a food package. My uncle Ron S. and I prayed for them, and they expressed gratitude for our visit. We plan to visit Jewish families in as many homes as possible this week. May you be blessed as you pray for Jewish people here in Ukraine, Israel, and around the world.

Jeff  & Ron with Holocaust Survivor in Odessa, Ukraine

Please pray for our outreaches during the Fall Feasts with the Jewish people here in Ukraine. We have seen many Jewish homes already, serving them with food packages and praying for their needs. In Odessa, 10 people responded to pray for salvation during the special Jewish New Year services! Our anticipation to see healings and other needs met among the Jewish people is ever so great, as we see the LORD drawing His people unto Himself. Messiah's Compassion is truly grateful for the partnership that we have with each Jewish Messianic congregation in Ukraine that ministers in cooperation with common goals.

Plaza in Haifa, Israel near downtown center

Israelis will choose their next Prime Minister and thereby their government leadership tomorrow on September 17th. Pray that the LORD's will be accomplished for the best of the country's future in integrity, for protection, and well-being of all citizens living in the Land. Pray for the best government that we not diminish the rights of believers in the Land for their rights to worship or expand their influence, lease properties, and have a representation in Knesset. Many followers of Yeshua (Jesus) as Messiah are consistently active in sharing their faith with other Israelis.

Would you please pray for comfort and shalom for the Shnerb family in Israel who lost their 17 year old daughter in a recent terror attack? Both her father and brother were critically wounded in the same attack. How vital it is to intercede for the Jewish people, especially when physical and spiritual enemies implement their evil plots against them. Pray for the spiritual salvation of Jacob's offspring.

Pray Unceasingly for the Jewish People / Israel

Haifa Bay, Northern Israel
Pray for Jewish people during all seasons, even during the summer! Many Messianic Jewish children and youth recently received ministry in Odessa, Ukraine during a summer camp. Jews for Jesus staff and other Jewish Messianic leaders organized this camp. We rejoice in the discipleship that took place, and now let's pray these campers will take the message of Yeshua (Messiah) back to their homes, relatives, and schools. Pray that they can get connected faithfully to one of the Messianic Jewish congregations and even grow more in their faith.

ISRAEL: Pray that Messianic Jewish pastors will have renewed strength during the long summer months when attendance sometimes fluctuates due to vacations and different work schedules of the members. Pray for consistency among core leaders for leaders who assist in worship, music, teaching, and other congregation responsibilities. Pray for unity and clarity of understanding when the various congregations meet together. Some of the most prevalent traps of satan are misunderstanding and hurt relationships because of miscommunication or unfulfilled expectations. Conversely, healthy relationships among the leaders promote spiritual growth throughout the entire congregation.
