My Last Few Weeks

09 Jan

The past few weeks have flown by so rapidly. I returned home in Oklahoma just before Christmas from New York. We had nice holidays here at home with almost all of the children, grandchildren, and the 3 great grandchildren. What an army we have.

While in New York I began working in the Jews For Jesus Live Chat room on their website. I really think that God used blogging, in part, to prepare me for that work. It is the most wonderful tool for evangelism. Jewish people searching for answers come anonymously, from all over the world, and have honest discussions about Jesus. On the 29th an orthodox person I spoke with for 2 hours came to the Lord. This is the best gift I could have received for Christmas.

We must use all of the means possible to proclaim the message that Jesus is Israel’s Messiah and the only Savior available to the nations.

I have missed being with all of you everyday but I try to visit several blogs a day. I’m off to NYC this weekend.

May God bless you all in your work for Him.

Shalom, until next time, Lord willing,

Levi

    Praise God for allowing you this wonderful opportunity to serve Him and for the greatest Christmas gift this side of the birth and resurrection of our Lord. Although you are missed here I can’t argue with God’s plan in using you this way. All glory be to God and abundant blessings to you in your obedience to His call Levi.

    Thanks for the update, Levi. Have a safe trip to NY. I’ll be praying. My youngest daughter just moved to Albany, NY. We are hoping to visit her in the Spring.

          Yep, its cold all over. Ive plenty of layers. I probably will not walk my normal number of miles in NY. My normal at home is 5 and it will probably be about that there this trip.

    It’s mindblowing at times to see how God uses one thing in our lives to prepare us for something else. We serve a God of strategic and divine order, and I thank Him for how He is using you for His glory brother. I also pray for traveling mercies as you go to and fro doing the work of our Lord.

    LOVE…GRACE…PEACE…

    Have a safe and fruitful trip and stay warm! I know it’s cold in OK but even colder up north. Hope you don’t have to go outdoors if you have a layover in Chicago! Praying for good weather on Monday and for safety as I also travel–driving to eastern Michigan to visit a friend for just over a week. About a 7 hour drive.

    You’re probably the only gentile I have ever met that has such a burden for the Jewish people. It’s just so beautiful to watch. Blessed to call you my friend, God knew what He was doing when He intervened to introduce us 🙂

    That is just awesome, Levi. I think your burden for the Jewish people comes from 100% commitment to Christ. That is so awesome! I will keep you in my prayers.

    This new year the Lord had me on a new path and I can’t wait to see where He leads me.

    Stay warm and be blessed.

      Thank you very much, Maria. Had great visits yesterday and i believe today i will be in another where the person comes to faith. Be praying so. They are at the right point and very eager for the word. After the meeting late yesterday they asked if we could meet this morning. Thanks, my friend.
