Much love and hearty shalom from your friends in Jerusalem!
We apologize for not having been able to reply to and update you, since we have been without internet for a while. Kindly resend any message we would have missed.
It is amazing that we have already come so far into the New Year, especially since we intended to write this message at a much earlier time.
Two weeks ago Jan Willem and I returned from Ethiopia to Israel after a greatly blessed speaking tour of ministry in this nation.
God led us to pray that Ethiopia will be the first African nation to move their Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem!
We have many very busy weeks behind us and it has been on our hearts for a while to personally write to you and thank each one for standing with the ICZC ministry through your prayers, encouragement and financial support.
We are so thankful for your willingness to obey the LORD, in whichever way He has led you, and for having helped us to be His means of comfort in Israel to the Jewish people, while also bringing a powerful strategic message of the LORD to the nations.
Elections in Israel
Israel currently is going through a difficult time: our Prime Minister and his family are under much attack and we are facing new elections in April 2019.
To be or not to be? That is the question.
Will Israel stay a united land or will the devil have his way and further divide the land by establishing a Palestinian State?
Many in Israel prefer to again have Benjamin Netanyahu as their Prime Minister, but the media and endless court cases are greatly burdening the First family and the Likud party of Benjamin Netanyahu.
We feel the LORD is calling the Sons and Daughters of God to stand on the walls of Jerusalem at this critical hour.
Benyamin Netanyahu has been the best Prime Minister that Israel has had in the 70 years of the State of Israel, and we can be so thankful for all this devoted man has done for his nation.
The LORD has deeply convinced us that what has come through prayer, also must be kept by prayer, and thus your standing with Israel and us is very needed at this moment in history.
Please pray that Benyamin Netanyahu again may win the elections, in spite of all the difficulties he is facing.
We therefore do encourage you to speak up for Israel wherever you are, and gather in groups and fellowships, for prayer and favor of the LORD over this Nation and for the will of the LORD over the future of Israel.
Thank you for your prayers
Also, we will be so thankful for your ongoing prayers and support for the ICZC.
We have invitations to come and speak in many nations this year. Jan Willem recently spoke in Finland, but right now we are facing a long list of invitations – just to mention a few: Brazil, Philippines, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Papua, Denmark, Norway, Holland, England, Latvia, Faroe Islands.
We also have it strongly on our hearts to again visit America. May the LORD also, by your prayers, enable us to go to the nations that are most willing to support Israel.
Please pray that we may be strong and healthy to fulfill the task the LORD has prepared for us. Jan Willem had a bout of flu whilst in Ethiopia and twice fell, but all praise to Jesus, he was unscathed and is, after some rest, being restored to better health.
Your continued prayers for our protection is much appreciated.
Feast of Tabernacles 2019
We hope that many friends will be able to come to Jerusalem in October this year from 13th to 20th, and celebrate with us at the Feast of Tabernacles, whilst we are crying out for the double portion of the Holy Spirit to fall upon all of Israel.
We will soon finalize the program for the Feast of Tabernacles 2019 and make it available to you.
Please enjoy our second video as we recap the last year’s Feast of Tabernacles!
