Michelle Beadle Ministry Update
MERRY MESSIAHMAS AND HAPPY HANUKKAH
Our thoughts and prayers are with you this holiday season as you celebrate the birth of our Messiah. May He richly bless you and your family as you join together to remember the miracle of His birth.
We are so thankful for your love and support. We pray you have a joy-filled, peaceful Hanukkah and/or Messiahmas celebration and a joyous, healthy New Year.
COMMUNITY WIDE MESSIAH IN THE PASSOVER MODEL SEDER WITH APPETIZERS
Enclosed is a flyer announcing our 2018 Community Wide Messiah in the Passover Model Seder with Appetizers on Sunday, March 4. We hope you will make plans to join us and bring your friends, colleagues, neighbors, and relatives. The cost is $10 per person for reservations made before February 16 and $15 for reservations after that. The deadline for reservations is Thursday, the 1st of March. You can make your reservations online at www.cjfm.org/michelleb. If you prefer to reserve a seat by phone, please call Julie Phipps at 1-800-926-5397. Make sure you tell her you to want to reserve a seat for our 2018 Model Seder on March 4. If you don’t specify your call is for a reservation, the assumption is that you are calling in a donation. Tickets will not be issued for this event. We keep a record of every reservation; therefore, tickets are not necessary.
MONTHLY WOMEN’S MEETINGS
Our monthly women’s meetings have been ongoing now for five years. In 2018, the meeting dates will change from the second Sunday of every month to the first Sunday of every month. Our meetings are always from 4:15 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. at Lakeview Christian Church, 5885 Fleur de Lis Drive, 2nd floor, New Orleans.
We hope you will join us for singing, Israeli dancing, schmoozing (informal conversation), learning, and nosh (light snacks), as we talk about the Jewish roots of our faith.
TRAVEL TO ISRAEL WITH US IN 2019
If you have never been to Israel, we hope you will join CJF Ministries as we travel to Israel in 2019.
(We already have a group of eight people from a local congregation in the greater New Orleans area who will join us.) We are announcing this trip now, so you have enough time, approximately 1½ years, to save your shekels (Israeli currency) for a once-in-a-lifetime journey to the land of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and Yeshua the Messiah. (The cost will be in American dollars.) If you are interested in this tour, please call Cindy Castillo at our headquarters in San Antonio, Texas, for additional information. You can reach her at (210) 226-1075. Tell her you are making an inquiry about the trip because you read about it in Michelle Beadle’s newsletter.
Everything was ready for our annual celebration of Sukkot/Tabernacles. The sukkah I had been using for over 20 years fell apart and a new one had to be ordered. Fortunately I was able to get one at the last minute.
Our new sukkah
We had dinners planned for each night of Sukkot. They were to take place at our home. We had guests in our sukkah for the first night, but the rest was not meant to be. Hurricane Harvey was in the Gulf of Mexico and we had to cancel the meetings. The sukkah was up for one night and then had to be taken down. This was the first time in 26 years that our celebrations had to be canceled. Hopefully next year all will go as planned.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS AND SUPPORT
Thank you for being such an integral part of our ministry through your prayers and financial gifts. As you have blessed us, may you also be blessed. Your partnership enables us to continue sharing His love with "the Jewish people first and also the Gentiles.”
