Visitors from Croatia, India, Israel and the US share at Beth Hallel this past week

We have been so blessed in the last week with two visitors from Israel including a Major General in the reserves in the Israel Defense Force (IDF) and four pastors from Zagreb, Croatia, Hydrabad, India and Oxford, AL. We were given an update by Itzhak Elman who heads up the Israel Leadership Institute (ILI) that trains former Israeli officers for leadership in Israel in business and politics. Major General (RES) Eyal Ben-Reuven spoke about his experiences in the many wars in Israel and how God preserved his life and helped him to lead and save his men from certain death. Pastor Kent Mattox from Oxford brought us a message about Rosh Chodesh and First Fruits offerings. Pastor Barnabas spoke about his various ministries in India especially to the poor and orphans. Finally, Pastor Darko from Zagreb shared about the shift where Gentile believers understand that it is time for the leadership of the body of Messiah to be transferred to the Messianic Jews. (See the story of Obed Edom and David and the return of the Ark of the covenant to Jerusalem). Our vision for Beth Hallel to become a hub congregation is coming to pass. Shalom, David & Leslye Schneier
