We Are Thankful!

This week, a battle has raged near us. Today we will gather with family and friends here in Jerusalem and we will celebrate, rejoice and give thanks for the ceasefire between Israel and Gaza that offers to restore a measure of calm to this area. But, there is still a deadly battle raging…a spiritual battle against God’s Word. The enemy is inflamed, and violently launching missiles of lies, deceptions and intimidation to try to prevent anyone from securely standing on the ground of belief that God’s Word is divinely inspired, inerrant and the only source of Truth. We are in this battle. And, there will be no ceasefire…but there will be victory! The enemy, although he is already conquered, is viciously aiming to cause as much devastation and destruction as possible to the souls of men. It is our desire, as a family and as a ministry, to stand firm in this spiritual war and hold up the standard of God’s Word as Truth!

Today we are thankful for the opportunity to continue to stand, here in Jerusalem.  We are also thankful that we do not stand alone, but with those of you who are also in the battle for Truth!

Blessings from the Kramer Family,

    I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in us will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.–Philippians 1:3-5

    Your work has been a blessing to me and the churches and youth I have served in Wyoming, Missouri, and now in Texas. Thank you for your work and thank God for your faith.

    Thank you, Joel, and family. We are thankful that there is the ceasefire now between Gaza and Israel, and that for now you are safe there. We pray as Psalm 122:6 says, for the peace of Jerusalem. We realize that there will not be a ceasefire from the spiritual battle that will continue till the Lord comes back and rules the world from Jerusalem. The intense battle for souls that we are in here too continues, and we thank you and all who are part of this Lord’s Harvest be it in Jerusalem or in Salt Lake City.
    God bless,
    Rauni & Dennis Higley

    Thank you for being a blessing to the world. Thank you for the beautiful picture of the family. I will pray for your protection during these tumultuous times, which will only end when Yeshua comes. What a privilege to be healthy and able to work for ELOHIM. His banner over us is LOVE! Dorothy
