Shalom To My Dear Faithful  Friends: 

“Where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” Matt. 18:20

“We are losing our girls and women, the strength of Nepal. Child sex trafficking in Nepal is  a crime against humanity. There is a blockage of justice!” Advocate D.Tripathi, Supreme Court, Kathmandu Nepal.

“I have been in villages where fathers sold their daughters for big screen TVs. My heart burns with the need to supply safe houses.” Meridel Rawlings

Never in my wildest dreams could I as a youth, have believed I could be set free from the suffering, humility and shame of child sexual abuse! I have been given the keys to His Kingdom found in Matthew 16:16-18. His ways are so much higher than ours. Because of the new life God created in me; I am able to reach into devastated lives and bring healing. Please pray for the on going welfare of the brave individuals in Nepal who stood with us in the creation of our latest film, YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. CAN = Change Action Nepal is exposing the world of sex trafficking through the survivorsThis wickedness spreads because good people do nothing! The educated Western nations are culpable!

What we MUST accomplish now!

New TV Studio

Shalom Dear Friends and Valued Partners,

You are very important to Meridel, myself and our team of media professionals in Jerusalem.

We are very grateful for your ongoing prayers and support to our media ministry that has been operating for the last forty years. As you know we continue to publish God’s Word from Jerusalem to the nations. We do this via TV programs, DVD’s, the Internet, Power point lectures and the printed page. Praise God.

We are currently building in a new TV studio at our ministry headquarters here in Mevasseret Zion. In Hebrew this name means “announcing the ‘Good News’ from Zion.” That is what we do, day by day, thanks to your help..

We launched into this building project through a generous offering from a Canadian charity. We are now nearing completion which includes the renovation of our three story ministry building. As usual, such building projects always seem to require more money and time than budgeted. To finish this project we are asking our partners to stand with us for a special love gift. We are believing for $50,000 to finish.

Yes, it is a lot of money, but if we all do our part with our best gifts we believe we will complete the building by 01 October, 2016 so we can continue producing Bible based, Spirit filled programs.

We rarely ask for funds like this and never ever do we want to presume upon your kindness to us over the years. But could we ask you to please seek the Lord as to what He would have you do in this vital matter to further our ministry of Jerusalem Vistas now and for the next generation.

‘…for the people had a heart to build.’ Their heart was engaged in it, and they went about it cheerfully and vigorously…Nehemiah 4:6 Amp

With your help we will be able to keep our construction crew working until the project is finished.

…so let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver…2 Corinthians 9:7 NKJ

Messiah!

Page-1-Image-5What is the question each living person needs to ask?

“Who are you LORD?”

What was the unexpected answer heard by a blind and bewildered, Saul, later called Paul, set on his course to murder ‘believers of The Way’ in Damascus?:

“I am Jesus!” was the answer.

This was the begining of a transformation that made Paul perhaps the greatest Apostle in history.

Today our world is bankrupt. Manipulative government  leaders seem powerless to stop the wars, which create havoc in millions of lives. People of faith believe that the only hope is the coming of the Prince of Peace, The Messiah.

Passover: the most celebrated Biblical Feast

It is with a deep sense of gratefulness and yes, joy, that today I found this piece flowing through my fingers to the keyboard from my mind and heart. Yes, Israel has an astounding history that continues to unfold prophetically. The fact that the vast majority of the Christian world does not appreciate this truth, proves that they are simply out of touch with the Biblical prophets and the prophecies of Jesus Himself. We as a family have had the privilege of docmenting 2/3rds of Israel’s modern history in documentary form. “Blessed are those who bless you Israel” has been our esperience and it isn’t over yet. We have sons and grandchildren growing up in our footsteps. I invite you to stroll down through history at our Passover Feast.

Nepal My Love

Here is a sneak preview of some still photos from the movie project on Nepal that the Rawlings family are working on called, “You CAN make a Difference”. It is about combatting human trafficking and sexual abuse of children in this beautiful “rooftop of the world” mountain kingdom.

Jay is currently writing the script and found some pics he thought you would like to see. They were taken on a 17 km trek up towards the Annapurna range of the Himalaya Mountains when Meridel, Chris and David met by chance a young man and his sickly mother. As you will see they met other special people as well, young and old alike.

The Desert Speaks

Join Jay and Meridel on their synagogue’s annual English Bible Study tour. This year they and 18 others decided to visit the amazing Negev desert for three days and two overnights. The Negev is the only desert in the world that is decreasing in size as the Israeli farmers are busy making “the desert bloom.” To quote Jay, “We especially enjoyed the spring time flora and fauna starting in the Ramon Crater, then at Kibbutz Ketura. There we learned about this unique community that celebrate their Jewish traditions as a great big family of 250 people! There local leaders taught about hearing the “still small Voice” and valuing the desert. We also visited Eilat where we learned the history of Israel’s southern most city surrounded by 3 Arab nations, Jordan, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. It was a very inspiring trip indeed.”

Dr Jay Rawlings, Lifetime Achievement Award in Media

The World Jewish Congress and the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus held their 10th Annual “Night to Honour Christian Leaders” on January 28, 2016 at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Jerusalem. This years honourees were Dr Jay Rawlings, “Lifetime Achievement Award” for his 40 years in the media producing more than 130 documentaries about various aspects of Israel and Mr Duke Westover, “The Tourism Award” for bringing 1000’s of Christian pilgrims to the Holy land during 40 years of arranging and hosting Israel tours.

Thank you

Shalom Dear Friends and Partners,

In a few minutes I will leave our home, just outside Jerusalem to pick up Meridel at the Ben Gurion International Airport near Tel Aviv. She is returning from three weeks in Nepal via Finland.

Daniel, our youngest son and myself were there with her filming our latest documentary called, “You CAN Make a Difference.” This is the “working title” of a TV program exposing “Human Trafficking and Sexual Abuse of Minors” in Asia and the Middle East. It is a $150 billion dollar a year criminal business. You may remember that our eldest son David and is brother Chris started filming this story with Meridel last year.

Over the last 40 years we have been fortunate to be able to give a “voice to the voiceless” in the media by writing, directing an producing over 130 documentaries, mainly about Israel, the Jewish people and their struggle to return to and to restore their ancient “Land of Promise” according to the Word of God. It has been a great privilege.

Of course we would not have been able to do any of this without YOU our faithful partners and supporters. Thank You for listening to His precious “Still Small Voice” that has prompted you to stand along side of us in prayer and finances. It has been a 47 year walk of faith and Praise God, He has never failed. Some of you have been with us since the beginning in 1969.

You may ask, Why did you not return home together with Meridel? The simple answer is that after we booked our tickets, I was informed by the World Jewish Congress and the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus that this year they decided to give me their annual “Lifetime Achievement Award” for our work in the Media educating a global audience about Israel’s historic and biblical cause. The award ceremony was on January 28th and previously we were scheduled to return on January 29th. So I changed my ticket to get me back to Israel by January 27th/2016. Thankfully our sons David and Josh and granddaughter Maya accompanied me to the gala reception and dinner in the posh new Waldorf Astoria Hotel.

The event was attended by many dignitaries, including the Chairman and the CEO of the World Jewish Congress – Israel, which represents all Jewish organizations in the world. Also in attendance were several Members of Knesset, and the former Israeli Ambassador to the USA, Mr Michael Oren, and many Christian Zionist leaders.

As I mentioned in my remarks following the award ceremony, “any award like this is not the product of one person’s life but is a team effort, or should I say a family effort.”

You, our faithful partners of many years, are the behind the scenes driving force that makes such achievements possible. I publicly thanked you in my speech. Also, I had to thank all the Israeli’s we have interviewed over the last 4 decades, for their invaluable contribution to Israel’s story. In fact we have been granted access to some of the most amazing and heroic people simply because of the camera. What a joy it is to report to you that we have, by God’s grace, documented people, places and events during more than half of the years of Israel existence as a newborn State.

Together please join us in giving thanks to the Holy One of Israel. Can you say “Amen”?

May the Lord bless and strengthen you wherever you are around the world.

Sincerely in Him,

and with our love,

Jay and Meridel and sons and team.
