LoveMusic! - In the Latter Days - Barry & Batya Segal

In the Latter Days
Barry & Batya Segal

Sept. 27, 2017

Greetings LoveMusic! friends of Love For Your People,

With these being the days to celebrate the fall feasts of the Lord (thanks to the Jews for obeying the Living God of Israel to maintain them!), we must recognize the great Messianic music of Barry and Batya Segal. For many decades they have been out front with their Hebrew/Israeli Messianic sound, producing over 7 CDS in that period. (You can see and purchase them on their Vision For Israel website here.)

I first met Barry in 1982 in East Lansing, Michigan, on the softball field! We were both members of the Shiloh Fellowship church's men's softball league (different teams). He was on the elder's team (pictured here with another, Jeff Williams.) Me? Another one. Barry then made aliyah and moved to Jerusalem, where he served in the IDF, before becoming the Personal Assistant to Bible teacher Derek and Lydia Prince. He met his bride Batya in the gift shop he owned, called "Greetings From Jerusalem." (I believe she was an employee, and also a Sephardic Jew, with  parents having made aliyah.)

In 2005, when I was with Derek Prince Ministries in Charlotte, North Carolina as Director of Finance and Operations, Barry requested of my boss, David Selby, (International Director of DPM) to let me come work for Barry, who had by then founded Vision For Israel/The Joseph Storehouse (established in 1993) in the Jerusalem area. Barry wanted to move his USA office from Savannah to Charlotte. David agreed, I accepted, and for the next five years I was the Vision For Israel - USA Director. I left that position in 2010 to start our own ministry Love For His People, Inc.

During those five years with Barry and Batya, I admired the hard-working and passionate spirit these two have, for their Land and all the people in Israel. I was a blessed man to make five Sukkot Celebration tours and conferences in Israel, and listen to their worship times during the conferences.

We also held a few conferences here in the USA for the ministry.

Their humanitarian work has blessed the IDF, school children, those needing assistant after making aliyah from the nations, and much more. Barry's adventurous TV program Roots and Reflections is the Israel travel magazine I watch weekly (schedule is on their website). Barry's JNN News has weekly reports; and their tours (Sukkot Celebration and Roots and Reflections), with Barry as "co-guide", are really fun! He might even share some of his choice food ideas with you.

With all that said, enjoy their music! It is now my joy to share this special song In the Latter Days, which was joyfully sung at every conference. I have also included links to several more of their popular songs, following this video.)

After listening, I also strongly encourage you to support of Vision For Israel! During this fall Feasts of the Lord special season, now would be a great time to do so to start the new 5778 Jewish new year (which by the way, "5778" represents "going through the gates." It just happens to be the album name containing In The Latter Days.)

It is my joy to share this special song In the Latter Days!

Ahava and shalom,
