Condolences to Shilo Messianic Congregation 
in Redlands, CA
on the loss of their shamash, Nicholas Thalasinos.
He was one of the victims of the shooting in San Bernadino this past week. 

Our hearts go out to his wife, Jennifer, in this
time of grief.

The memorial was held yesterday.
Corry Bell was there to host the music.

 
If it is on your heart to help his wife at this time,
there is a gofundme account set up for her.


 
Thank you all for the contribution at our service 

yesterday.

Also, for those who still want to contribute to the 

memorial fund, 

go to gofundme.com link.

*****
In this spirit, it is so important

to pray for our enemies.

Please put on your calendar February 6th Shabbat.

We will be inviting Messianic congregations along

with Arabic Christian Churches 

to come and pray for the Peace of Jerusalem

and the Middle East.

We will also be praying for Jews and Christians and Muslims

who need to truly know their Jewish Messiah.

There will be NO peace until hearts are transformed 

by the Power of His Word.

We will have Shabbat services as usual,

but we will come together at 5 pm with Havdalah
 (concluding service of Shabbat)

and then prayer with our brothers and sisters.

CHOCOLATE AND ISRAEL


First we had Hershey's for Heroes,  

now we want to help Israel.

As you know, there has been an active 

boycott of Israeli products.

To counteract it, we want to buy

 as many Israeli products as we can!

The Ratthe family came back from Israel,

with lots of chocolate made in Samaria by Israelis.

The name of the company is HOLY CACAO.

It is 7 dollars a bar.

Pricey, but remember we are helping Israel.

If interested, please email Francis and Eve Ratthe at:
