On October 15, I will ride 41 Kilometers around Tel Aviv. 30,000 cyclists will participate, most doing the 8K or the 21K. God has put it on my heart to do the full 41K to raise funds and awareness for our congregation, Tiferet Yeshua (The Glory of Yeshua) in Tel Aviv.
The past few months have been exciting at our congregation. Last week for our Feast of Trumpets fellowship meal, it was packed, as we sounded the shofars, proclaiming the coming King! We have seen numerous Israelis profess faith in the Yeshua and an influx in visitors. Last week I spoke to a visitor. It was his first experience in a Messianic Congregation and he said to me, “This place is so full of love,” with a big smile on his face.
The week before, Beni, a paid Orthodox Jew who seeks to keep people from coming to our congregation, told a young man who was visiting. “Don’t go in. They are liars!”[i] The man came in a professed faith in Yeshua at the end of the service.
We are poised for growth!
And that means reaching Israelis with the good news of Yeshua. However, we have several pressing financial needs. We are so grateful to you, our partners for helping complete our offices. Our staff is sooo happy. Yet, we need to continue with the renovations. Even though our congregation is in a industrial area of Tel Aviv, we want visitors’ first impression of Tiferet Yeshua to be a good one. We want them to see a clean, modern facility. We need to refurbish our fellowship hall and sanctuary. They both need new flooring, fresh painting, nicer chairs and tables and more.
In addition, we have had to cut back in our Teen ministry’s and Children’s ministry’s budget. I want to restore their full budget so we can raise up our children to love Yeshua.
Would you consider joining hands with a Hebrew-speaking lighthouse to the lost of Tel Aviv? If so, please sponsor me as I bike around the city with the largest concentration of Jewish people in the world (3,500,000!). Thank you. Just use the form below.
PS Bonus! I plan to wear a camera on my helmet to record the trip. We will post clips of the ride after the race. Thanks again!!!
