Shalom and a happy start to 2018 to you!
I pray you have had a great time of rejoicing with your family and friends over this holiday season as you reflect on all the great things God has done.
I am sure you wou

I ask myself sometimes, “Where would I be today without Yeshua?” All I can say is that as a Jewish young man, I was headed for an early grave and an eternity without the Lord. But, thankfully, God gave His Son as a perfect sacrifice for our sin. Now my life and yours are filled with
goodness, love, peace, and more joy than we could ever deserve.
He is everything to me and that is why I am so thankful during this season of the year.
This is also why I am so burdened for my own people—the Jewish people! I have given my life to the salvation of Israel, and I thank God that I have the privilege of serving for the past 28 years of my life. Louise and I first served with a Jewish mission in South Africa for 5 years before coming back to Australia to begin the work of Celebrate Messiah in early 1995. Since the year 2000 we have been in partnership with Chosen People Global Ministries, now with work amongst Jewish people in 18 countries around the world. What a privilege it is to serve the Lord!
I am also so thankful for you. I deeply appreciate your reading our publications, praying for us, and your generous and sacrificial financial support, which enables our work among the Jewish people.
To sum it up: during this holiday season, our entire staff around the globe is thankful for the Lord and thankful for you!
