Michelle Beadle Ministry Update
MESSIAH IN THE PASSOVER & FUNDRAISING
This year, as we have done for the last 23 years, we held a community-wide Messiah in the Passover Model Seder as well as a Seder in our home on the first night of Passover. Our community-wide Model Seder was held in conjunction with our monthly women’s meeting. We also shared Messiah in the Passover in 11 additional meetings.
2018 Community-Wide Abbreviated Messiah in the Passover Model Seder with Appetizers
COMMUNITY-WIDE MESSIAH IN THE PASSOVER HIGHLIGHTS
A number of years ago I shared a Messiah in the Passover presentation in a local church. A woman who attended that meeting was very interested in Jewish evangelism and began to support my ministry.
A few years later, her son began dating a Jewish woman. She became acquainted with her son’s girlfriend, had conversations with her about Yeshua (Jesus), and had an opportunity to share the Good News. Just a few months ago, this young lady prayed with her to receive Jesus as her Messiah. The woman then invited her son and her son’s girlfriend to attend our annual Abbreviated Messiah in the Passover Model Seder with Appetizers. It was the first time this Jewish woman experienced a Messianic Passover Seder. It was also her first opportunity to meet other Jewish believers in Jesus.
At the meeting, we exchanged contact information. Ever since then, we have been meeting weekly for discipleship Bible study. I hope you will pray for this young lady (and her boyfriend), that they will remain strong in the Lord and grow in their relationship with G-d.
2018 AT HOME PASSOVER SEDER HIGHLIGHTS
The Seder I had at my home this year was very unusual. It was the first time we had a brand new Jewish believer in Jesus celebrate with us. This young lady had an opportunity to participate in her first Messiah in the Passover Seder amongst Jewish believers and their born-again spouses. She was able to see and experience Jew and Gentile as One in Messiah. She told me afterward how comfortable she felt and what a blessing it was to meet so many others who were also Jewish and believers in Yeshua.
At the Seder, we discussed immersion (baptism). She had already been thinking about it and told us she wantsto wait to be immersed until her out-of-town family visits her in New Orleans. I hope you will join me in praying that the family will be open to witnessing her immersion and to hearingabout their Messiah. Please also pray with me that they will embrace Yeshua, just as their relative has.
In the fall of 2016, I included in this newsletter an appeal to help fund this ministry. At that time, we asked people to support us with a monthly offering of $25. Twenty-three people responded to the appeal and have faithfully sent in offerings every month. I cannot mention names but I can say how grateful we are for your response to that appeal. Our work is possible because of your faithful support!
Since that appeal, we attended a support-raising solutions seminar and some of you joined these 23 people, giving faithfully every month to CJFM. Thank you ever so much for believing in, and supporting the work we do.
I wish I could report that our ministry is fully funded. That is not yet the case.Thus I am making an appeal once again with the hope that you will prayerfully consider joining these supporters with a commitment to support our ministry on a monthly basis. We are currently praying G-d would raise up 30 people who will give offerings of $100 a month to CJF Ministries, or 60 people who will give $50 per month to CJF Ministries, or 120 people who will give $25 per month to enable this work to continue.
If you are able to support us with a monthly offering, I hope you will call or text me to let me know of your decision. My cell is (210) 410-1034, or you can send me an e-mail at . I would love to meet with you in person to give you an update onwhat we are doing and our financial goals.
The Apostle Paul, speaking to the believers in Rome said, “For if the Gentiles have shared in their [the Jewish people’s] spiritual blessings, they also ought to serve them [the Jewish people] in material blessings” (Romans 15:27, TLV).
I can say, without a doubt, that it is G-d’s will for you to support ministry to the Jewish people. Many are already supporting ministries in Israel. We praise G-d for those who do. There is also a need to support Jewish ministries in the United States. The total Jewish population in the United States is 5.7 million, and in Israel 6.3 million. We need your help.
If you are able to support us with a monthly offering, or a one-time gift, I hope you will go to my web page at cjfm.org/michelleb and click on the purple donate button to set up regular monthly giving.
