IFG Monthly Meeting Report 19 03 17

Posted by admin on March 19, 2017

Trish introduced the meeting and Steve gave a short explanation for the postponement of Chris Browne’s talk. His Mum has had a fall and is in hospital so needs our prayers. Steve also explained the nature of the teacher training courses at Yad Vashem and the work of the Holocaust Centre, of which Chris is now National Education Director. We look forward to hearing from him at a later date.

Jenny Rawlings made a plea for help for a student in need – see the attached image of the info and link to a ‘givealittle’ page.



Trish gave advance notice of the IFG Passover celebration on Tuesday 18th April, hosted by Jeff, Rosemary, Shulamit and Paul.

IFG Meeting 19 03 17 (5)Jane Troughton gave a brief but lively overview of New Zealand Bless Israel – it looks like a major move of God to counter recent negative events concerning Israel – for more information we have repeated below the text from this meeting notice.

As an act of solidarity with NZ Bless Israel we took this group photo of everyone present at the meeting.

The main speaker for the day was Liz Moffit, who spoke powerfully about the work of Mayim Chayim and Trumpet of Salvation in Israel. An Israeli who has witnessed this work also testified strongly about the significance of this work.

A collection was taken to help support the work of the non profit organisation Liz is associated with.

New Zealand Bless Israel is a simple and clear responding to the call in Genesis 12:3, “I will bless those who bless you…” 

A National event will be run in Victory Christian Church (VCC) Auckland and there will be people right around the nation gathering in their region to agree – linked by live stream.  So significant that as Christians that we take responsibility in the Spirit for how our nation positions itself towards Israel.  It’s an opportunity to show love and honour to the Jewish people.  It is probable that this Event  will be filmed and showed in Israel, so it’s going to be a powerful testimony from Christians at the ends of the earth!

It would be great if you could send information to people in your area and let’s see what the Lord will do where you are and in the surrounding towns.  20 cities and towns have confirmed that they will be hosting a gathering to Bless Israel.  Many more are looking to gather people – and it would be marvellous if we can connect as many places as possible – it’s a national standing in agreement.

To host a gather is essentially a case of having a venue and sending out the information and the connecting and welcoming of people from many churches and around the area to come to join together.  Check out the attachment about Facilitating a Regional Gathering.

There are a number of ways to connect and express blessing to Israel.

  • Attending the Evening Event – held in Auckland and in many other centres around the nation.
  • Shofars at Sunrise  – a call for those with shofars to simultaneously sound them at 7 am on 8 April, all around New Zealand.
  • 47 towns so far are going to be sounding the shofar & praying
  • Faces of Blessing – take a photo of your church or organisation with a sign # Bless Israel.  We will put the photos together into a book which will be presented to the Israeli Embassy, a personal message of many people expressing their love and support.
  • Sign the Card – gathering signatures of those who want to Bless Israel.  Send a clipboard around churches and organisations. The more signatures we gather the bette

Thank you for seeing how you can take part and letting others know about the event, as information goes out through many networks it will help gather people to join together – it makes a  huge difference to send a united sound of blessing from the ends of the earth to Israel.
