‘They’re Coming Home’: Hundreds of North American Jews Migrate to Israel in Prophetic Fulfillment - CBN News Chris Mitchell

They’re Coming Home’: Hundreds of North American Jews Migrate to Israel in Prophetic Fulfillment
CBN News Chris Mitchell
TEL AVIV, Israel – Nearly 250 new immigrants arrived in the land of Israel Wednesday after a 10-hour flight and sometimes years of waiting and planning. Many of these “olim” – or new immigrants from North America –  see their arrival as a prophetic fulfillment of when God said he would gather his people to the Promised Land from the four corners of the world.
The arrivals came from 22 states, 2 Canadian provinces and include 103 children, three sets of twins and a 28-day old baby. 
“This is a great situation for the State of Israel that the 240 Jews from North America, arrive in Israel here and we are very proud to have them as students and soldiers and partners in the State of Israel,” said Yoav Galant, Minister of Aliyah and Integration.
Nefesh B’nefesh, which works with the Jewish Agency to encourage more Jews to immigrate to Israel, organized this arrival. The organization has brought 60,000 North American Jews to Israel since 2002. 
Co-founder Rabbi Yehoshua Fass was there at Ben Gurion to welcome the new immigrants.
 “Seeing people fulfill their dreams, coming home. Remarkable,” he told CBN News.
For co-founder Tony Gelbart, seeing Jews come to Israel never gets old.
“The first time, the first person is just as exciting as the 60,000th person right now, it’s the same thing,” said Gelbart. “There’s emotion. There’s joy. Tears of joy. Look, they’re coming home to their Promised Land as you know. This is their home. This is their dream.”
One brother and sister were reunited after two years.  
“I don’t know, I’m overjoyed. It’s so weird. I’ve been here alone and now I have my brother,” Amit Nahum said. “It’s amazing.” 
Many families made this journey. David Eckstein was among the hundreds who immigrated to Israel. Eckstein is the nephew of Yechiel Eckstein, the founder of the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews. Eckstein brought thousands of Jews to the land of Israel and passed away recently.
 “It’s just one of the most amazing feelings in the world to be able to come to our homeland to be part of the State of Israel, the Jewish homeland that we’ve always dreamed of being a part of,” David Eckstein told CBN.  
Yechiel’s brother Beryl said he wishes his brother could have been there to see David make aliyah.  
“I miss my brother being here but he’s here and I know he would have been the first one to greet David. He loved him so much.”
For the Ecksteins and many other families making aliyah, it’s about the generations.   
“We’re so proud of them to make this decision at this stage in their life, to come back home, where my father was born, my grandfather, my great grandfather and now this generation is coming home,” Beryl said.
For many of these immigrants, coming to Israel is also about the Bible coming to life. 
“It’s about the ingathering of the exiles, bringing the Jewish people home. But it’s not only for the fulfillment of prophecy that I’m so happy because my family is coming home and we’re all together finally and when we’re all together in our land that brings the light to the whole world,” Ari Abramowitz said.
For these new arrivals their Israel adventure is just beginning, but the Jewish agency plans on bringing many more.
 Isaac Herzog head of the Jewish Agency said: “This year we’ll have 30,000 immigrants from 40 countries. It’s an incredible story.”
The Jewish Agency has brought 3 million immigrants since 1929.

Richard and Carolyn Hyde from Heart of G-d Ministries - June update

A 501-C3 in Israel
Dear Friends and Prayer Partners,
Usually, we share how יהוה is moving on the hearts of Israelis in the Land, but this update addresses a preparing of the way for Aliyah in light of Isaiah 60:2-5.
Recently I had a dream of standing on the Rock of Gibraltar calling out to my Jewish people in the West to come home. It was a time to open the gateways for Aliyah through the Gibraltar Straits in the Spirit. When I sent this dream to some friends, they connected me with the Gibraltar House of Prayer, who then sent an invitation to participate in an Aliyah and worship conference in mid-May. This dream was beautifully fulfilled with the help of this precious team of intercessors from many islands and coastal regions throughout the Mediterranean Sea basin, praise יהוה!
I made a real connection with a Catholic priest at the conference and he extended an invitation for me to speak in his Sunday morning church service. My Gibraltar friends said that’s never happened before! At the church, I spoke about Aliyah and how the L-rd faithfully keeps His promises in His Word.

As part of the conference, we had set aside a day for us to climb the mountain and make proclamations for the gateways to be opened for Aliyah. When the priest heard what we were doing on the mountain he asked to join us. His heart was so deeply impacted by יהוה that I felt led to commission him to help with the great coming Aliyah when the Jewish people will “come trembling from the West”. I believe this humble Spirit-filled priest will play a key role in mobilizing people to help fulfill Isaiah 49:22 when the time comes. The intercessors agreed that one could literally see him receiving this commission in his heart. We don't know when the Aliyah from the West will begin, but we do know it will happen!
During the journey to Gibraltar, I joined some of the intercessors on a ferry to Ceuta, Spain which is in Africa (joined to Morocco) where we prayer-walked. Here is what one of the intercessors wrote:

“Yesterday Carolyn was telling us how the Africans feel responsible for the persecution of the Israelites in Egypt 4,000 years ago. As we were walking in Ceuta, I felt led to go to a park where there were several statues. These statues were labeled Labor, Commerce, Finance, and Peace but the last statue labeled "Africa". It was a statue of an African woman standing above a bust of an Egyptian Pharoah. Then suddenly everything that Carolyn said yesterday came to life.

So she pulled out an Israeli flag she prepared yesterday and stood in front of the Statue of the African woman standing next to the Egypt's head. She waved a little flag around in unity with her African friends who were gathering at that same moment in Uganda to pray and break these curses from the past over Africa. Hallelujah that we could join in bringing blesses to Africa!"

Testimony and Prayer Request
A young Israeli received the L-rd but sadly fell away. When a friend of his was searching for truth, he led his friend to our son's congregation where he found and received Yeshua and now he's helping our son and his family with their move!

Please join us in praying for upcoming outreaches that are fruitful and Holy Spirit led and also for a new music project in Spanish and Hebrew with Lenny Flamenco.

Yet I Will Rejoice.wmv
Your song Yet I Will Rejoice really sustained me when I was bedridden two years ago. I used to play it while lying in bed, hardly able to move. Thank you so much for the profound sentiments in the lyrics of that song!! 
תודה רבה - Thank you so much for your love and prayers and support. We are so grateful for each of you who are standing with us in Israel. May the L-rd meet each of you at your place of need and especially save your prodigal children and loved ones in Yeshua's love,

We are praying for a professional bookkeeper to assist us in ministry.
Please pray and if you believe the L-rd is speaking to you about this, please contact us.
We may write L-rd or G-d (a Jewish custom Carolyn grew up with) or we may write יהוה or YHVH but it's all about showing reverence for the Holy One of Israel.
