IFG Meeting Report for Sun 21 07 19

After Trish's introduction Grant and Nadine lead us in song to start the meeting and set a great tone.

ROSS & IRIS ABERNETHY then spoke about their journey through European Holocaust sites and Israel. The presentation was accompanied by a very informative talk by Ross on the European leg (the European Ebenezer Alliyah trail) including concentration camp sites and other Holocaust memorials, and Iris spoke well about their Israel encounters. For some these were poignant reminders of their own experiences, and for others less experienced a vakuable mine of reliable information.

NADINE COCKER showed us an interview with Alison Marshall which she made in Israel, which was most valuable as a primer on how to relate to Israeli people.

GRANT SALISBURY showed us more slides of his SAR EL experiences and backed up what Alison Marshall had to say on the video in several ways. He also outlined plans for taking a group to serve with SAR EL in the relatively near future.

BARRY PEPPEREL updated us on the latest of his books, and how to use them in a range of situations, including when speaking to others about replacement theology.

We finished with a time of prayer followed by a supper and some good networking and fellowship time.

Israel Focus Group meeting - Sunday 18th August 2018

ISRAEL FOCUS GROUP

Together with

CHRISTIANS for ISRAEL

– NEW ZEALAND

The Café, Greenlane Christian Centre 17 Marewa Road, Greenlane Auckland

Guest Speaker - MR NITAI ELIASH

CEO of RAMAT GAN ALZHEIMER’S MEDICAL CENTRE

Mr Nitai Eliash is the CEO of Ramat Gan Alzheimer’s Medical Centre where he has been working for the last 15 years. The Centre is the only Hospital of its kind in Israel that specialises exclusively to people with alzheimer and other dementia related diseases. The Hospital runs an amazing support system for those being looked after in the Community. This includes a 24 hour phone support system.

Nitai has a Batchelor in Law LLB & a Master in Business Administration (MBA). He ended his military service in the IDF with the rank of sergeant & he received a commendation for excellence from the President of Israel.

Nitai is married to Einat & is the father of Miriam, Michael & Asaf ...........

Psalm 122 v 6 Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem: They shall Prosper the Love Thee.

Ps 121 v 4 Behold, he that Keepeth Israel Shall neither Slumber nor Sleep

Trish began the meeting, and Shulamit Ataya, returned from much travelling, spoke briefly.

Bryce Turner of c4Israel introduced Mr Nitai Eliash very eloquently, having some considerable familiarity with his work. Mr Eliash spoke movingly with the advantage of real personal as well as scientific and administrative experience in his field. Many were astonished to hear new information about the relationships between lifestyles and the onset of illnesses like Alzheimers/Dementia/ Parkinsons. The work being done in Israel can only be described as cutting edge and has wide international recognition, as some of our visuals show. Mr Eliash took questions afterwards and that time was just as interesting.

As always a pleasant supper followed and the usual networking and catching up with old friends.

IFG Meeting Report for Sun 19/5/19

Grant got us off to a good start with singing and praise. Trish introduced Nadine, who has been blessed with a strong leading from God in Israel and has been associated with Alison Marshall and the bulding of a replica tabernacle. Her experience and knowledge inspired by a deep drive to learn more and more were an inspiration. Barry Peperell shared his wide experience and current writing directions - the wide range of resources he has produced are a valuable source of information. Mike introduced our prayer time for Israel and related issues, then we networked as usual over afternoon tea.

IFG Monthly meeting report 16 09 18

Posted by admin on September 22, 2018

Bryce spoke about the Israel 70 event at Waipuna in October – it has been well organised and many dignitaries will be present – we need to make an impact to support Israel so the more who can come the bigger the impact. Contact Trish for tickets. Bryce also spoke about the work of C4Israel and some topical issues. Mike spoke in some depth about the urgency of the hour and the need to seek the Lord to focus our efforts, especially in prayer and intercession. Faith like that of the Roman Centurion is needed, which simple faith surpassed that of the disciples when they got into trouble in a boat. Naturally enough, a time of prayer and intercession followed, followed in turn by a shared supper with good fellowship as always.
