Passover and Provision

The Passover/Exodus story is familiar to most of us and yet there is always something more to think about. While reading Exodus 16, the account of manna bread from Heaven, I was struck by verse 3.

New Generation Transitions

“Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph” (Exodus 1:8). A new king and a new generation of Egyptians arose, who did not know Joseph.

Free at Last

An Eye For An Eye

Dear Brothers and Sisters: Recently we received a phone call from the Akko Municipality asking for our ministry to help provide back-to-school supplies for two hundred needy children. That very same day we also received another inspection of our building by the same Akko Municipality regarding property tax. This to me was a contradiction and… Read more »
