We are facing a real problem with our boat in Turkey it needs to be moved to a Greek Port or Greek Island for reasons of security. The Turkish President Erdogan has destroyed any resemblances of a democracy in Turkey. The below article explains it very clearly. Our problem is still finances we still owe over 6,000 euros for the work that has been done on her and she is sitting outside the marina on a private dock with no running water or electricity. The friend of ours who is helping as much as he can has about reached his limits. He is in fact sticking his neck out for us and could face serious problems if we don’t take the boat from his care soon. As you may know Jews, Israelis and Americans are not real popular with the new Dictator of Turkey and emails and phone calls are surely being monitored so we have to be very careful in contacts with each other.
In fact if we don’t get the boat moved soon we could lose it, it is already risky for us to travel there and return to Israel.
After over 40 years in the Lord’s service I know things like this are strong warnings that God is about to do something big and the Devil seems to know it.
Anti-Semitic Academics: Where is the Outrage Against Turkey?
by A.J. Caschetta • August 5, 2017 at 5:00 am
In the last 12 months alone, Turkish President Erdogan has closed at least 15 universities and confiscated their property. Invoking Article 301 of the Turkish penal code — which amorphously criminalizes insults to “Turkishness,” the Turkish government or the Turkish military — he has also closed down numerous publishing houses. He has forced Turkish journals to remove from their editorial boards scholars who criticize him. Hundreds have been fired and blacklisted. Unable to work in Turkey and, with their passports confiscated, unable to leave, they represent the worst-case scenario of every comfortable Western academic who has ever bemoaned the “chilling effect” of Republican presidents and congresses, or who have proclaimed as “McCarthyism” any criticism of their own work.
Our boat moored here in Israel is in good condition but we are very short of finances for provisions and the finances for fuel and there is no doubt that we will be called into action soon very soon, and once again the Devil knows it and he is doing everything he possibly can to stop finances from getting to us.
We need your support and we need it today. I am asking you to pray about giving a real sacrificial gift, so much depends on each of us giving our best.
If God has been speaking to you about supporting this Ministry in Israel, we welcome your support.
The best way at this time is by personal cheque and sent by airmail, and if you are concerned about security you can register the letter.

It is important to know that Bank Transfers amount over $8,000 requires a lot of paper work and contracts so please keep each transaction with the Banks under that amount.
As long as the mail is running it is still my belief that a personal check sent airmail and if necessary registered letter is the cheapest and fastest way to send support.
If God has touched you to bless this Ministry in Israel, I don’t need to tell you how important this support is, and if He hasn’t touched you, there is no way I could make you understand.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for our son Joel and all the IDF soldiers. Pray for this Ministry and your part in it.
Shalom, jerry golden
