December 2015 / January 2016
Shalom Dear Friends and Partners.
Here are three recent quotes from some of our friends and partners. Just for you,
“I can’t tell you how moved I was upon reading Meridel’s “Still Small Voice” letter. I have passed it along to my minister and to many others.”
“I was seeking the Lord as to what to do with my tithe, and when I came across your last “Jerusalem Vistas/ Israel Vision” newsletter I was prompted to send it to you. (I can’t get out to church anymore.) I have followed your ministry since the release of your film “Apples of Gold” in 1980.”

“Congratulations for your 2015 “Nehemiah Award” for a lifetime of excellence in the media from the International Christian Embassy – Jerusalem, appreciating your and Meridel´s untiring work of enlightenment, information, testifying and “mitzvot”! (Hebrew for“good deeds”) May the Holy One of Israel bless you further on with wisdom, strength and provision.
W. & I. B. – Israel.
For these lovely Words of Encouragement we as a family “Give Thanks.”
The Bible says that, “it is always good to give thanks for His mercy endues forever.”
Meridel and myself and our team give thanks for people like you, many who have stood with us over the years in prayer and in finances. The work of the Kingdom of God is a team effort… indeed. Thank you.
A Lifetime Contribution to Israel – Via You, our Donors and Us!
Over the last 40 years we have dedicated our lives to promoting and defending Israel and in teaching the Word of God through a variety of media. Our documentaries, TV shows, illustrated lectures, books and booklets have given a worldwide audience, Jewish and Christian alike, Biblical insights into ancient and modern Israel. The Word of God is coming to pass in Israel today, as promised, pointing to the coming of the Messiah and the completion of God’s redemptive plan for all Mankind. Thank God.
The enemy of this plan, Satan himself, knows that he must eliminate the Jews and Israel to thwart God’s eternal plan. This is called anti-Semitism and now anti-Zionism.
The ISIS terrorists are hell bent on killing off the Jews, Christians and any ethnic minority to establish their Islamic Caliphate. Thus ISIS is moving rapidly across the earth. The recent terrorist attack in Paris is an example of this curse in action. This is the “cursing” as mentioned in Genesis 12:3 “I will bless them who bless the Jews and curse him who curse (the descendants of Abraham) the Jews.”
The Next Generation
We give thanks that all of our 4 sons are here in Israel right now lending a hand to help us continue the work that God entrusted to us. Earlier this year, as an answer to years of prayer some capital funds were given to us to build a more modern and efficient studio. Our sons have embraced this challenge. They are leaders in the latest media technology and are working hard to help us achieve “the best for less.” But our everyday expense funding for their salaries is often lacking.
We are your representatives in the forefront of this battle IN THE MEDIA and we need your financial help to carry on. We are a completely “faith based” ministry.
We rely entirely on regular donor participation. Every time you pray and the Lord prompts you to join us in this BATTLE FOR TRUTH and you send us a donation you are actually a soldier in this war. THANK YOU for listening and obeying the “Still Small Voice.”
The Financial Burden
Day by day, in addition to the stress of the daily terrorist threats, Meridel and I carry a financial burden. It is kind of like a domino effect. When funding is down stress builds up. Without a cash flow our staff need to look for other work. You ask, “Why the slow down in funding?” Is it a falling away? Well, sadly many of our veteran donors have stopped because of age. So we need new partners. We also appeal to some of our donors to please restart giving again. We ask you to give a listen to the “still small voice” concerning your stewardship vision for 2016. I believe, that as a “cutting edge” ministry, we are worthy of your regular support.
Meridel and I are appealing to you to remember us in Israel at this difficult time with your tithe or offering. Here is how to give:
- You can write us post dated cheques; to “Jerusalem Vistas or Israel Vision”
- Give online via our website “Donate Button” ; Pal Pal takes major credit cards.
- Give by filling in your credit card details on the Response Form; for letters
Together we can do it! Thank You for being a powerful blessing in a time of cursing. www.israelvision.com
