Fort Worth, TX, United States
What is the main focus of your activities today?
My main focus is to love the Jewish people and the land of Israel. I show this by desiring to help with housing for Holocaust Survivors and the Jews who will be returning to the land.
How long have you been doing that?
I have been loving Israel and helping to return Russian Jews to Israel for over 20 years. My husband and I have single-handedly paid for for at least 40 families to be flown from Russia to Israel since the 90s through our church organization. I have also personally paid for my friend Tova Feldman and her daughter to fly and visit Israel on several occasions, making it possible for them to visit their family there..
What are some of the successful related programs or projects that you have done this year and in past years?
I have contributed money’s to Root source, One For Israel, and lived in Israel for three and a half months while attempting to purchase an apartment that will be available for my dear friend Tova Feldman and her family once they come to Israel. I also would like to make my place available to other Jews who are coming back home who may not have a place to stay for the first 3 months after making Aliyah. I also have a vision of helping to facilitate the building of villages/cities throughout Israel as places for Jews when they come home in a mass Exodus from the countries of this world.
How did you get to where you are today?
As a pharmacist, I graduated pharmacy school in 1986, and as a teacher I got my teaching certificate in 2013. I enjoy helping people stay well which is why I pursued pharmacy, and I love teaching children and adults thus resulting in pursuing a teaching certificate for 4th to 8th grade math. But my love for Israel and the Jewish people, I believe, is supernaturally put in my heart by Hashem so that I can help the Jewish people. I am also currently taking Hebrew lessons through Hebrew University online. I did take Hebrew for 3 years with my Jewish friend who’s a holocaust Survivor before both her husband and my husband passed away.
What is your “testimony”?
As a child, I was raised in a Christian home. I learned all the Old Testament Bible stories when I was young and believed them. I became a born-again Christian when I was in pharmacy school in 1984. I received Yeshua into my heart at that time. I started growing as a Christian starting in 1987. From that time on, I began developing a supernatural love for the Jewish people and the marriage between them and the land of Israel. Ezekiel 36 became my guide in how Hashem looks at the relationship between the land of Israel and the Jewish people. When my husband and I moved to the DFW area, we started attending the Church of Good News World with Pastor Robert Mawire. He is a pastor who truly saw Hashem’s heart concerning the Jews and Christians, and how we were to relate to each other. I have personally been to Israel 6 times since 2006. I have been on four tours, two of which I planned for my family and one for 30 people in my church. But I have also been there on my own for three weeks in summer of 2019, and then for three and a half months starting in the fall of 2019 through February of 2020. The purpose of me being there the last two times was to look for an apartment home in Jerusalem. I would like my home available for my friend Tova Feldman and her family and possibly other Jews who may need a place to stay when they fist make Aliyah to Israel.
What do you think God is doing with regard to Jewish-Christian relations?
I believe that he’s restoring Christians to their Judea Christian Roots. Therefore, he is binding the hearts of Christians back to the Jews and the truth of their Jewish Messiah, Yeshua. This is making a monumental shift in the mindset of Christians concerning Israel and the Jewish people. The church had strayed away from their Judea Christian Roots, but it is finally coming back to the truth of Torah and the word of God through both the Old and the New Testament studies.
