We thank God for the opportunity to serve Him and His people together with you here in Israel.
We wish you and your family plenty of rest during the summer holidays. When you can, please pray for Shavei Tzion congregation and its staff, that during the summer break they will also be renewed in strength.
We are happy to inform you that both sides have now signed the sales contract for the new building on Tel Aviv Street in Haifa, which means that the property is officially in our name now. Thank you all for standing with us during this long haul!
Rainbow of Sounds music school has been operating for almost two years. This year we had thirty students enrolled, instructed by five teachers. The school's main goal is to offer high-quality and affordable music training to children from all walks of life under the auspices of Return to Zion Messianic Congregation.
We started the school with only a few instruments. With the help of faithful partners, we have been able to increase the number and variety of instruments the children can use to practice. Now, after two years, we want to raise our standards. In this coming September we would like to receive 5-7 children from low-income families, and we invite our ministry partners to sponsor their tuition. Up until now the parents have paid for the tuition. Childhood interest in music may well help to keep a preteen away from all sorts of anti-social behavior later in life.
In the coming fall we want to improve our soup kitchen and food delivery program. We now have a new chef in our Haifa branch; her name is Lena. Shavei Tzion congregation has always felt the need to feed the hungry, both physically and spiritually. If you would like to know more about our soup kitchen ministry, please visit our website at www.shaveitzion.org.
