“Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. “But if God so clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more will He clothe you? You men of little faith! Luke 12:27-28
The seasons are changing and our rainy season here in the Negev is coming to an end. The dusty desert has turned a lush green and the view is truly breathtaking! We know that this greenness is only for a short season as is the nice and comfortable temperatures during the day. We are enjoying our springtime here at the Ark.
As with all things there is a season. We will be moving from our current residence very soon. We ask for prayers in this for God’s provision and for His supernatural peace and serenity the whole way. We will be moving from our current rental to another rental home. We are awaiting God’s confirmation on where our Ark home will be. This is an exciting time for all of us. We are looking forward to seeing what the good Lord has for us this next season. God is good all the time.
Polly has returned from the U.S.A. and is thankful for all of the prayers that went up during her time spent in the hospital with double pneumonia. She is feeling better and is swinging back into life here in Israel. Everyone here at the Ark in the Negev is overjoyed that she has returned and that her health has returned.
The Ark counselor/teacher Stacey has departed to the USA and Canada for five weeks for her yearly tour. The women at the Ark anxiously await her return and look forward to hearing testimonies from her speaking engagements. Prayers are going up and are appreciated for strength and endurance throughout her tour.
The women in the Ark are growing spiritually and gaining a closer walk with the Lord. Everyone is happy of the progress in the hearts of those whom reside in the Ark. We have one woman who is battling ongoing serious medical issues and is bracing for a probable major operation. The community of believers is a strong emotional support for her. She thanks all of the Prayer Warriors and Prayer Partners for their love and prayers. She is very strong in her faith in Yeshua and she has chosen to keep her smile throughout this season in her life.
The Little Arkite is doing very well in her kindergarten and is growing like a beautiful wildflower. She is fluent in Hebrew and absolutely adores her school.
Barbara is back in Israel and has begun another class of hair cutting/styling with two new students at her international school of beauty program. May she be blessed and may her students excel with their amazing teacher! Barbara has been missed and we are glad she is back.
We have had to say goodbye to a wonderful staff member from Canada. During her time here, she was invaluable to the women at the ark as well as our little Arkite. She tackled many tasks during her time with us such as being there to lend a compassionate ear and prayers as well as immense words of wisdom that will never be forgotten among all that have met her. All of us at the Ark will miss her colossally. May she be blessed in her next season with the Lord! We hope to see her again in the not so far future if it is God’s will.
We have new jewelry in the online store and have many new pieces and styles to make their appearance soon. The women at the Ark enjoy making these pieces and their smiles light up when a piece of jewelry sells, showing how accomplished they feel in doing a job well done.
As always, thank you to all our supporters. Thank you to the prayer partners and warriors, the monthly donators and to all who support us by purchasing the jewelry in our online store or in person. We find you all priceless to us.
