This will be my attempt to send you an email from Turkey on this lap top, we have been here a few days and it looks like we will be here for a week or more. To say this is a trip ordained by the Ruach Ha Kodesh (Holy Spirit) would be an understatement. I never cease to be amazed at the wonders of God as His Spirit moves before us touching the hearts of Believers and unbelievers as well. Knowing that the prayers of Believers are felt in heaven and the result is always before our eyes. Giving witness of God’s hand putting everything in place for what is before us.
Along this Turkish coastline daily I see 35 and 40 meter (120+ feet) Gullets any of which would carry more Jews to safety than both of our boats together. And daily I ask God why we can’t afford one of them. The answer is always the same “I have commissioned you to do this, so do it.” That is not to say we do not feel God’s presents at every turn in the road for we do, but God is simply saying I can only bless your actions so don’t sit still, for you cannot navigate a ship that is not under power. So once again I am bringing before those God has joined with this ministry our need for one of these larger Gullets, so many Jewish lives could be in the balance.
It has occurred to me that we could sell the two 60-footers we now have and have almost enough to purchase the larger Gullet but the danger in that is putting this ministry in a position of not having the boats or boats needed during the time we must be ready. As I am sure you are aware of the possibility of all hell breaking loose at anytime making it necessary for us to be very careful. The obviously solution is to purchase the larger boat straight out and we are several hundred thousands short of that possibility.
Before returning home to Israel we will travel to other places where we feel lead to set up possible safe houses. Of course where we are in Turkey and our destinations cannot be said at this time, and for obvious reasons we ask for your prayers of safe travel.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for our son Joel and all the IDF soldiers. Pray for this Ministry and your part in it.
