-We praise the Lord that ministry in Haifa is thriving. Our hostel is steadily occupied by the flow of visitors to Israel which is a great help financially.

-Thank you for continuing to lift Hannah before the Father in her recovery.
- Next week, we will be meeting with leaders in England. We're believing for vision, Kingdom strategy & friendship to be forged during this time.
-A friend of ours that has a significant place in the German government is currently in Israel. There is great potential for favor & open doors to come as a result...
- In September, B.A.S.E. will host an outreach in Germany. This April, the B.A.S.E. event drew 700 people, maxing out the capacity in the current facility. Clearly there is hunger and God is moving! We are believing for a new, larger facility to host these precious young seekers.

Dear praying friends,
Please lift before the Throne:
Ray Raymond, a close friend of Miles a dear partner of AEBM, Ray is in ICU having critical surgery.
Justin Simandle, a Marine preparing for deployment anywhere across the US to extinguish fires. Please pray he would be a strong witness to his team of 20 young men, and for protection.
Please pray for Mark who had emergency surgery last week. His digestive tract was not expelling anything so after an MRI, they did emergency surgery to restore flow. Please keep him in your prayers that he may be healed.
Finally, please pray for Ravi Kumar Thakur who works at the office of Scott and Anita Geisinger, missionary friends in India. He is in his early 20's and in critical condition, currently surviving on life support since Friday due to septic shock. He was under treatment for TB the last 6 months but the disease became resistant and overwhelmed his immune system. His left lung, liver, and kidneys had stopped functioning, but after prayer have started to function again marginally. Yesterday his heart stopped but they managed to get it started again. Pray for a miracle and that the Lord will be glorified through his healing in his life & in his family.
"Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results." James 5:16

HAS GOD CAST AWAY ISRAEL? - by Pastor Jim Stretchberry
In these times, I think this article is so significant for what may lie ahead for the church, especially for what may lie ahead for Israel and for the 16 million Jewish people living today.
Romans 11: Israel’s Rejection Not Total
1 I say then, has God cast away His people? Certainly not! For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God has not cast away His people whom He foreknew.
If there was no other passage in the Old or New Testament to signify the state of the people of Israel and God’s attitude towards their unbelief, after their rejection of their Messiah and Savior, it seems it might suffice to meditate on the scripture quoted above where it is clearly shown how God acts towards this nation. The authoritative and clearly distinct words of the Apostle Paul: “God has not cast away HIS people” may serve as a starting point when we think or speak about the past and present situation of God’s Chosen People.
