This week we mark a very joyful milestone here at Beit Hallel Congregation. We are celebrating our 15th anniversary since BH was first founded in 2005.
Over 15 years ago, as I was driving to a home study I was teaching in Ashdod, God stopped me on my tracks and showed me the vision that became the driving force behind everything we have done for the past 15 years.
Beit Hallel was born out of God’s love for His people in this area, seeing the great spiritual need and not a single Hebrew speaking congregation in a city so big, the Lord showed me a small glimpse of what He was preparing here… and never could I have imagined it would be so much bigger than what I initially thought it would be.
It has been the first 15 years of an incredible journey we’re on, letting our Lord lead the way and pave the path. Salvations, healings, miracles, deliverances, victories, breakthroughs… none of us has been easy, all of it has the seal of God’s grace all over it. The challenges, obstacles, opposition and persecutions we have faced and still facing, none of it compares to the greatness of God, the power of the Holy Spirit manifest in our daily lives, our ministry, congregation, outreaches, projects.
Beit Hallel has always been about people. Our work was always focused and geared towards our community, on reaching the lost, helping those in need; showing God’s love in action.
There’s so much more to come, so much more God has entrusted us with. Our only goal is to be faithful in the tasks at hand.
“And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry.”
“The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.”
1 Timothy 1:12, 14
We’re grateful for your love, support, prayers, for you kind and encouraging words, for being our sojourners, friends and allies.
Our part is to be faithful to Yeshua’s call and His vision. His part is to lead us through and give us good fruit for His Kingdom!
