Support Rob Styler
It seems like it has been one busy season after another. That’s not a complaint, it’s a praise. God has been busy and as always, He answers prayers—both yours and mine. Thank you for your prayers for us. They are what strengthens us and prepares the hearts of people we “run into” in the course of ministry.
In December I had the opportunity to return once again to my second home, Toronto. It is always a pleasure and privilege for me to minister in this wonderful city. We had our annual Hanukkah meetings where I had the chance to see some of our faithful friends. I also was able to see my “old” friends, Ben and Sue Volman, and speak at Eytz Chaim Congregation.
We also returned to California for a few days to attend my niece’s wedding.
As I’ve been mentioning in the last few letters, our Leading Others program is up and running. Kyle Garbely, introduced in my last letter, continues to minister in Beth Messiah congregation in New Jersey. He has had the chance to give a sermon and has begun a new youth program.
Speaking of Leading Others, I have been in contact with several leaders in Israel in the hopes of launching LO in the Land. There has been a good response and I am working together with Yossi, our worker in Karmiel, to see how we may plan for the future. It is my hope we may be able to make a big investment in the lives of the future leaders of the Messianic movement in Israel. With your prayers, this will become a reality.
I have also been working with a few leaders in Canada to bring LO to that country. It seems the leaders there are also enthusiastic about the possibilities.
I have contacted several seminaries in the United States. Their response to LO has also been very positive. Please continue to pray for LO and for the people God may desire to be involved. Through this program, I believe we will help provide mature, biblically-sound leaders for the next generation in the Messianic movement.
Last November I had the opportunity to attend the Messianic Leaders Roundtable in Phoenix. As always, there was a helpful speaker and the chance to connect with many diverse leaders in the Messianic community.
In the picture above are Sharon and I, Dan and Cynthia Strull, and Murray and Alana Tilles. Dan is the leader of Olive Tree Congregation in Chicago and Murray is the Director of Light of Messiah Ministries in Atlanta.
In April of this year, I will be leading a tour in Israel with Maranatha Bible Church. After the tour, Sharon will meet me and we will be joining with another ministry to do some evangelism.
April and May this year will be a busy time of travel. I’ll be in Dallas the beginning of the month to attend some meetings with other Messianic leaders. The following week I will be in Atlanta for the LCJE (Lausanne Consultation on Jewish Evangelism) annual North American meeting. The week after that will be our tour in Israel.
In June, CJFM will be holding our annual Pastors’ Conference in the FSU. This year’s conference will take place in Latvia. My topics will be Mark 14 and Israel in Eschatology. Please remember us as we minister there.
The good news is there are many items for prayer!
First, please remember Leading Others. Pray for God’s direction and for His choice of young people for us to invest in for the future of the Messianic movement.
Please pray for our tour in April. Pray for hearts to be touched, and for the Spirit of God to work in all who attend.
Pray for the work and outreach in Israel. Ask for the Spirit to go ahead of us to prepare hearts for the Good News.
Remember our upcoming conference in Latvia. Pray for each of the teachers and for the listeners that God will give them a vision for His people.
Thank all of you who have been giving faithfully and have helped us financially in our ministry.
Shalom and blessings to you,
Rob and Sharon Styler
