PRAYER UPDATE FROM ISRAEL 11 APRIL 2016       As mentioned last week, this week Handel’s Messiah for chorus, soloists and orchestra will be performed in the Hebrew language in three cities in Israel (Or Akiva, Monday night; Beer Sheva, Wednesday night, Jerusalem, Friday afternoon).  Please pray protection over these performances—over the voices of the soloists, over the choir and orchestra and our director David Loden—over passage to and from each venue.  Pray that the Spirit of God assist us in releasing His Word of Life!    This is a unique opportunity for Israelis to hear the message of their Messiah in their own (the original Biblical) language.  Most are totally unaware of these Scriptures.  And of course, it will provide a wonderful inspiration for those attending who have already discovered and
