Dear Ministry Supporter and Worshiper,
Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ Matthew 25:37-40 (ESV)
Yeshua has been showing us the importance of ministering to each one that He sets before us. Sometimes we can be choosy to whom we would like to minister; however, these are not (in some instances) the ones ready for His Blessing. Yeshua has put Mindy and myself together first to minister unto Him and to one another. He has formed this union as an example of the One New Man - Jew and Gentile together in Him - to draw these brothers and sisters of Yeshua back to Himself by every means. I have fallen in love with the Scripture from 2 Samuel 14:14b: "But God will not take away life, and He devises means so that the banished one will not remain an outcast." I believe these "means" which He devises, deliver us from every type of death we face. He also uses the foolish things of the world to confound the wise, and that which is weak He uses to shame the strong. Mindy and I sometimes feel both foolish and weak; however, we understand that by being a worker in His field, we are neither. We have begun to see "ten from the nations" take hold of the garment of a Jew, and say; "Let us go with you, for I know God is with you!" This is both humbling for us, and so very lovely. This is how a child must enter into His Holy Presence - and we are able to receive them in a loving, brotherly way - knowing we are receiving Yeshua Himself.
Yeshua said "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength," and "You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.” The scribe who asked Yeshua about the greatest commandment went on to answer Him correctly, and He told him that he was very close to the Kingdom. We desire to be close to His Kingdom, and to care for all those coming in; not being a hindrance in any way - but only to love - as one child of God to another. So let us pray the Lord of the harvest sends out laborers into His harvest.
Yeshua has put in my heart to produce live feeds and archived shows from our home base to minister over the internet as well. We desire for this "set" and transmission to look as professional as possible. Mindy would continue teaching dance - both new dances and some dances we never get much opportunity to teach - from almost two hundred dances choreographed we have produced. We want it to be an outreach, as have some of our YouTube posts been, which we now have archived on our website. We were in Crown Heights not too long ago, which is a heavily populated Jewish section of New York city. We were recognized by a lady there who had been touched by our ministry of Messianic dance. So, we really won't know how Yeshua wants to use our good works perhaps until the Kingdom.
If you would like to partner with M.D.C.I. this year with your financial support, we are believing for a good harvest. Your donating will enable us to pursue what Yeshua is calling us to do. Over the past decade we have been privileged to minister in six countries, and to over seven hundred congregations and fellowships. Please let us know if you would like to help us in His field. We are full-time ministers and have begun to work part-time as substitute teachers in the school district.
Our ministry has created worship dance curriculum for fifteen years, and our latest series called “Aliyah~Rise Up!” [of which there are three projects] is meant to bring awareness to these musician/saints/ministers in the land of Israel, who need our love, support and encouragement. We have produced twenty instructional curricula in total (two-disk sets) that we are currently offering at half price for the entire collection at our store.
Thank you for your consideration, and many blessings to you,
