Mission premise has become their home, church & school. Have a blessed Shavuot.
Dear my co-laborer in the great Commission, thank for everything. Please find below the news update I wanted to share with you from the USA, South Sudan and Israel . It is extensive reporting on all front that the Lord laid in my heart to share with you. In South Sudan, this year will go down as one of the most challenging year in our ministry because we have been confronted with challenges and opportunities dealing with young children who are looking to God through the eyes of Operation Nehemiah Missions. Jesus says suffer not the little ones, bring them to me for such is the Kingdom of God. Their future will all depend on what you see happening here. In the past we always dealt with families and back in 2016, they had their own homes. This time around. every body is coming back from the camps to no home. In my 27 years in ministry, we have not directly dealt with need of children in the capacity you are witnessing here. But there are no homes and no infrastructure to settle the families at the moment. So the Mission compound has become their homes, church and their school. This is where your prayers and support are most needed.
As we celebrated Shavuot in South Sudan, 32 People gave their lives to Yeshua. So this is the good news. We are celebrating the Shavuoth by bringing the harvest of oranges and cassava from Beth Israel Farmland to feed so many families and children at the Bethlehem Primary school. Last Friday Evening, we gathered in Prayer at Bethlehem Worship center. The Gospel message was preached, and 32 people were cut to heart and they gave their Lives to Yeshua the Messiah.
Prayers: I would like to bring this to your attention right now : Sleeping arrangement , class room crowding
Your Contribution is bearing fruits in the lives of South Sudanese children.
I am putting some urgent appeal here for prayers and support.
Children are dropped off at ONMI Mission compound every day for school. On the ground situation is proving very tough for our ground leadership team.
They want me to convey their appreciation and prayers to you for your support. However, They need 50 double bunk beds, 100 school desks, 200 bed seats and blankets, and a lot of Malaria and Typhoid Fever Medicine are needed.
Your benevolent gift to Operation Nehemiah is transforming lives in South Sudan in this recent day in amazing way. We are seeing your tenacious effort to support the vision of Operation Nehemiah is truly bearing fruits. People are returning from exile every day during challenges to find play to stay, food to eat and finding medical services. We are facing daily confrontation with the daunting tasks of educating the young ones dropped off by their parents at Bethlehem Primary school. We need beds, desks, books, medical supplies and everything else to stabilize the Lives of these children.
Train them when they are young
Many hands make work light. This is their physical education; everyone is hoeing and planting seeds.
the Bible says if you do not work you will not eat. Look at that smile on the face of that beautiful girl and very one else is planting and hoeing the field. Train them earlier when they are young to understand the value of hard work and to remind them about one thing. Food does not grow in the supermarket. It grows in the soil and you must get your hands dirty to plant them for a good harvest.
Food security and revolving economy begins with one fruit.
How do you strengthen the value of South Sudan's GNP and the strength of SSP currency or How can you bring stability to unstable country, well, this is one dimension of doing it.
Pundits say you cannot grow oranges or any fruit in South Sudan. Really, are you kidding? Yes, these oranges are products of South Sudan and the product of your benevolent investment many years back and now it is bearing fruit. We over saw raising money for seedling, preparing the land and planting them in 2007. Yes, every kind of fruits you think of can grow in South Sudan including these of oranges are in South Sudan.
These are Mangoes
These are are Cassava
This is the product of Beth Israel Farmland, of Akko Mt in Kerepi, Pageri County.
The land is so rich with everything available in the land. South Sudanese do not need handout. They need the tools and seeds. They can work with their own hands and support their families.
This is how we create GNP (Gross National Product) of any nation, establish revolving economy, reduced import, expand export and improve the Value of SSP National Currency. Please go donate at www.operationsnehemiah.org
These Children are students at Bethlehem Elementary School in South Sudan. Every on them came back from Ugandan refugee camps literally about 2 months ago. Now, think for a moment, how much would it cost to feed more than 100 of these students with oranges containing vital Vitamin C if all these oranges are bought and imported from Uganda? As the Bible says, Wisdom is vindicated by her children. Your support for Operation Nehemiah to set up the Beth Israel farmland in South Sudan to grow these oranges from within the country and ready to feed these children truly speak to the heart of the long term vision of www.oeprationsnehemiah.org.
Pray that that block production initiative in action
We just started making blocks to build Elementary and church, using the machine you can watch in operation, along with that we now have medical need to attend to over 200 students in the mission compound. If the Lord leads you to help,
Please find a link to ONMI's developmental and long-term initiative in making construction blocks from dirt's to build the school and the church. What is amazing about this whole thing is that South Sudan has the biggest asset, which does not have to be imported from Uganda. It is the soil, (90% of the composition of this block being made here Live is soil, 5% cement and 3 % sand 2% cent water). It is only 5% of the product which is cement is imported from Uganda.
These young men you see here were in refugee camp in Uganda without work about a month ago. Now they have returned from exile and we gave them work to do in South Sudan. We want to help and keep them working.
We want to make 250,000 of these blocks. 1000 bags of cement will make 40,000 of these blocks. 40 blocks per per bags of cement. We have started with 1000 costing us $10,000. We are up to the next purchase help.
Israel: Rockets flying in Israel and terrorist attacks as Shavuot Celebration Loom High.
Today in Israel and around the world, it is the Biblical holy day of Shavuot (Festival of Weeks).
Shavuot is a Biblical Hebrew festival is done in remembrance of the single most important event in Israel’s history: the giving of the Torah (the first five books in the Hebrew Bible) to Moses at Mount Sinai., It is one of the three major festivals often called “pilgrim” festivals because all Jewish males were required to observe them at the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. There, they experienced divine revelation as God gave the Israelites His Law. In Deuteronomy 4:10–13, Moses reminded the people of that experience:
Shavuot has several designations in the Bible. The Book of Exodus 23:16 designates it as “Hag HaKatzir” — the Festival of the Harvest — which identifies the holiday with an agricultural season. The Book of Numbers 28:26 designates it as “Hag Bikkurim” –– the Festival of the First Fruits, which specified the time on which the custom was to offer first fruits.
Jews and Christians pilgrims are supposed to ascent to the Temple Mount where the Temple once stood, in a place now occupied by an illegal Islamic Mosque built in the 7th century. But because the Mosques sits there and the enemy, Satan uses it as a flash point of riots and destruction by Muslims against the Jewish worshipers. The chances are Israel temple security may not allow anyone to go up there this time around. It is sad, but that is the hard reality.
Shavuot in 2021 began in the evening of Sunday, May 16 and ends in the evening of Tuesday, May 18
OVERVIEW | SHAVUOT
In the middle of Celebrating Shavuot, Israel is undergoing through diabolical barrage of Rockets launched by Hamas, Islamic Terrorist group based in Gaza Strip and from within, attack by Arab Israeli Muslims in solidarity with Hamas.
Arab Israeli turns against their Jewish neighbors in solidarity with Hamas Here is a moving testimony from a Jewish woman, a mother and a wife , coming back from her mother's funeral then this TPS News report.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Raw Testimony from an Israeli mother and wife living in the lower Galilean region of Israel. Her Jewish community was attacked by Arab Muslims Israeli who are rioting, looting and burning Israel down from with in solidarity with Hamas.
"Naami Ganz, resident of Moreshet in the Galilee, talks about how usually excellent relations with neighboring Arab towns turned upside down this past week, and describes her harrowing drive home from a funeral, with her children in the car."
The plight of Gazan Christians and elsewhere under Hamas and PA
We must more than ever pray for Israel and the Peace of Yerushalayim. There are also Arab Christians who are trapped in Gaza and elsewhere in West bank and Bethlehem, languishing under Hamas’s and PA terrorist oppression. We must pray for them too. As Messianic Believers, Joel Rosenberg of All Israel News said, Gaza was mentioned 22 times in the Bible. The Ethiopian Eunuch who brought the Good News to Ancient Ethiopia, now the Sudan was baptized by Apostle Philip on the way to Gaza.
Shavuot in Hebrew Pentecost in Greek
As all of Israelis Jews from all walks of lives including Messianic Jewish believers in Yeshua celebrate the Feast of Shavuot, in Jerusalem and around the world, Christians celebrate it as Pentecost, (50th day after 7 weeks, passed the Passover), we must all rejoice and be thankful to God for instituting this Biblical holiday foreshadowing Yeshua the Messiah because Yeshua is the First Fruit of all Resurrection from the death , He is God, Incarnate in human form the Second Person of the Trinity is integral part of the Elohim God the father, the Son and the Holy Spirit , who gave Moses the Torah and the Ten Commandment in Mount Sinai.
Messiah is the First Fruits of Resurrection to Eternity
As Apostle Paul noted: “But now Messiah is risen from the dead and has become first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by one man came death, so by one Man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Messiah all shall be made alive. But each one in his own order: Messiah the first fruits, afterward those who are Messiah’s at His coming. Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet. 1 Corinthians 15:20-25
Israel is the first fruits for bringing the Bible into the World.
Israel was chosen by God as the First Fruit because she was endowed with responsibility to bring the Torah and the Entire Scriptures, God’s Word of Divine Inspiration to expose the world to the Saving and Redemption knowledge of G-d Elohim” Jeremiah 2:3 says “Israel was holy to the Lord, The first of His harvest.
Nehemiah noted “We will also bring the first of our dough, our contributions, the fruit of every tree, the new wine and the oil to the priests at the chambers of the house of our God, and the tithe of our ground to the Levites, for the Levites are they who receive the tithes in all the rural towns.” Nehemiah 10:37
You must know Him by His fruits: The Significance of Yeshua’s Resurrection
After Yeshua’s (Jesus’s) resurrection He presented Himself alive by many convincing proofs, appearing to His disciples and many others over a period of forty days and speaking of the things concerning the kingdom of God (see Acts 1:3). Before Yeshua (Jesus) returned to be with His Father He spoke intimately with His disciples telling them, "…behold, I am sending forth the promise of My Father upon you; but you are to stay in the city (Jerusalem) until you are empowered with power from on high" (Luke 24:29).
“Then celebrate the Festival of Weeks [Chag ha-Shavuot] to the LORD your God by giving a freewill offering in proportion to the blessings the LORD your God has given you.” (Deuteronomy 16:10)
The contrast between the fruits of Shavuot & the Fruits from the Tower of Babel
The significant of the Biblical feast of Shavuot is major as stated above. It is not just celebration of this day to remember the day on which God handed Moses the Torah but is also incredibly significant festival to remember because it was the direct opposed of the Tower of Babel. Whereas on the day Shavuot in Jerusalem, God gathered human race in Jerusalem and sent them out to be witnesses for His Kingdom from Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria to the Outermost part of the world. Today Christians and Jews one in Messiah across the world celebrate Shavuot even though Christians uses Pentecost Greek word for 50.
Whereas during the tower of Babel fall human race, gathered in one place to build a big tower, the tower of Babel and they wanted to reach God or to equal themselves to God.
God saw their plan and it was evil and he confounded their language and scattered them abroad as tribes throughout the surface of the earth.
Impact of Shavuot in Jerusalem 2000 years ago: They were cut to heart (pruned) by the Holy Spirit to bear Many Fruits and spread the Good News throughout the world.
On That day In Jerusalem, Jews and gentile converts from all over the known world at the time, converged to celebrated Shavuot in Jerusalem. As the Holy Spirt descended upon the disciples, they began speaking in different languages of those men who came to Jerusalem from other nations to celebrate Shavuot. They heard them speaking in each of their own languages from the nations presented. They were dumb struck by what they heard because, they knew, those disciples could not speak their language. Peter seized the opportunity to preached and enlightened them about the resurrected Yeshua the Messiah which Torah spoke about from the Root of David, He was the First Fruit resurrected body from the dead. After hearing this, they were cut to heart and over 3000 people gave their lives to Yeshua for Salvation. Unlike the Tower of babel, where men rebelled against God and God scattered human race across the face the globe to fulfill the Great Commissions,

Americans could use some good news right about now -- and this morning, the Supreme Court gave it to them. After 29 long years, the justices just took a case that every pro-lifer has been waiting for: a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade. For the first time since 1992, the highest court in the land has a chance to deal a death blow to the precedent that's tied this country in judicial knots -- and robbed us of 62 million unique, irreplaceable lives. That could all change by this time next year when the Supreme Court has what some legal scholars are calling "the best opportunity they'll ever have to overturn Roe."
