Been doing a lot of praying lately, well a lot more than usual I should say. One of the main things I’ve been asking God is there something else we need to be doing that I am not aware of? There has never been a time when support is more important than today with all the possibilities of a mass Jewish exodus from Europe on the horizon.
I truly believe that most reading this today have been called to this ministry by divine appointment yet for some reason the needed finances have dropped off to the point that we are in a position of possibly losing both of our larger boats simply because we can’t move them into certain places and do the necessary maintenance to keep them safe for passage.
Our Gullet is today in Ashkelon, Israel, and in need of repairs. It has been there for the past year in order to replace a motor. That has been accomplished at a cost of over $40,000 and now we can move her to closer pick-up points along the Eastern Mediterranean but because of the cost of the motor we find that we can’t afford to make the sea trip much less pick up Jews who need to come home.
We know that in the natural believers are concerned about the future and of their own survival in regard to what is happening in America and world wide. But those of us who have been called to bless Israel are not moving in the natural but the supernatural. The Biblical and spiritual truth is what motivates us for we believe God never lies and Israel is the apple of His eye. That God blesses those who bless Israel.
We are watching the world turn against Israel as God’s Word said it would. Unfortunately we are seeing many who profess Yeshua as their Messiah being effected far more by the liberal media than they are by God’s Word. For those who love God fear has no place in their decisions of who or how they will serve.
We have about a 4 week maximum window to get this boat moved before the storms of winter in the Mediterranean make it nearly impossible, or at least unwise to go out to sea if it is not an emergency.
We have come a long way in this ministry, now with three boats and communications and contacts in important Jewish communities around the Mediterranean. To let it all go now for lack of support just doesn’t make sense. It’s now we must trust and believe the movement of the Ruach Hakodesh (Holy Spirit) and move forward knowing God didn’t move us this far for us to fail now. So many Jewish lives depend on your decision today.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, pray for our son Joel and all the IDF soldiers. Pray for this ministry and your part in it.
Shalom, Jerry Golden
