Efraim and Jeannie Goldstein will begin service with Chosen People Ministries on January 1, 2017. They have served the Lord in Israel for almost 3 decades and have a long history of mentoring and developing young leaders throughout their missionary careers.
For many years, the Goldsteins led a camping program in Israel that has fueled the discipleship of hundreds of young, second-generation Israeli believers.
This has now turned into a national movement within Israel. This is the first time in history we are seeing an explosion of second-generation Israeli Messianic believers serving the Lord in the Land!
Today, Efraim and Jeannie serve in the Galilee region of Israel where Efraim is the pastor of the Light of the Galilee congregation and Jeannie ministers to the women and children, and has a national ministry among young women, as well.
Efraim will have a major role within Chosen People Ministries, training and mentoring younger staff members who work as part of our team in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and across Israel.
I have known Efraim and Jeannie for many years and, in fact, Efriam helped lead me to the Lord and Jeannie came to faith through the witness of my wife, Zhava.
We are looking forward to all that Goldsteins have to give to the work of God within Israel and to building the work of Chosen People Ministries in the Holy Land.
There is still time to send a gift to support the Goldsteins that will be counted as part of your 2016 contributions.
I am hoping that you will prayerfully consider giving on a regular basis, as they need your support every month.
Chosen People Ministries is a support-raise ministry and the Goldsteins can only receive what God provides through His people each month.
Please take a look at the opportunities to give through our Watchmen for Jerusalem program, which allows you to give on a very regular basis via a secure electronic funds transfer, utilizing your bank account or credit card.
We have had this program up and running for more than a decade without any problems. Please follow the instructions on how to enroll in the Watchmen for Jerusalem program – on behalf of the Goldstein family.
We are also trying to provide the Goldsteins with a Transitional Grant of $25,000.
A generous supporter has offered to provide a $5,000 gift if the other $20,000 is raised before the end of January. Please consider being a part of the team that makes this transition easier by providing this grant so that Efriam and Jeannie have a little more time to raise the regular support they need on a monthly basis.
Thanks so much for caring and for your prayers and support for Efraim and Jeannie and what God will do through them in 2017 in the heart of the Galilee region of Israel!
