Shalom my dear brother and Sister in Yeshua, I pray and expect that this newsletter finds you well in Yeshua. From the family and Mission front: Your participation in the work of ONMI has been uplifting and encouraging on every front. Thank again for all that your support and encouragement to for making this this trip possible for me.
The logistic of the mission trip came on together very well. God provided everything I needed to pull the trip off within one month of preparation. Mission work is two ways road. There are those of us who go on missions and those of you who send us on mission. Without your encouragement, prayer and financial support, it is impossible to achieve Mission work. God makes the call and we each answer that call in obedience together we become a team for the workmanship f of God. He doesn't call the qualified, but he qualifies the call. Some mission calls are right here in our back yard some are within our national boundary other are across the oceans into other continent in the situation like South Sudan.
All in all, the Lord Gets the Glory. Nehemiah had a burden to rebuild the Jerusalem wall, Ezra had a called to rebuild the second temple, and a vision appeared to Paul in the night: a man of Macedonia was standing there, urging him and saying, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.” 10 And when Paul had seen the vision, immediately)we sought to go on into Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them.)
Just a quick update on what is going on the ground. ONMI is track to complete Bethlehem Primary and Nursey school to be ready this May.
Agricultural progressing -
Beth Israel Farmland is ONMI’s Mission Center, located on the highland of Akko Mountains. This is where ONMI carries out major agricultural activities to establish permanent food security for the region instead of continuous dependence on imported food from other countries. It is here we carry out numerous cultivations of varieties of crops and fruit and lumber trees such as the Sorghum, Bee Keeping, Eucalyptus and teak trees, sweet potatoes, beans, oranges, cassava, mangoes, millets, and sesames plantation. The challenges we face here also involve the Scope, Time, and Cost. We have a feeder road condition which makes it very difficult to get to the farmland during heavy rainy season. The road is not paved. We are responsible through your benevolent support to maintain the road. Therefore, we are currently praying and looking into acquiring heavy equipment such as road compactors, dump truck, grader etc. to maintain the road.
"If you confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved” Romans 10:9-10.
Pastor Timohty Levi- prayed over a new believer who just received the Lord.
I tell you that in the same way, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance Luke 15: 7
