The San Antonio Encampment Was Fruitful

Continuing To Bear Fruit & Build Up The Saints

(Pri Laset'yeesa - Heetstabr'yot ha'Kadoshim)

The 2007 SBMF Annual Meeting was held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas. 

Erev Shabbat Worship was at 7:00pm on June 8, 2007 - Sivan 22

Shabbat Yeshiva Worship was at 8:00am on June 9, 2007 - Sivan 23

Davidic Dance Training was between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. on June 10, 2007 - Sivan 24

  Good News – The Encampment Was Wonderful:

Lift up your eyes round about and see; They all gather together, they come to you.  Your sons will come from afar, And your daughters will be carried in the arms.  Then you will see and be radiant, And your heart will thrill and rejoice; [Isaiah 60:4-5]


Come, let us worship and bow down, Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker.  7 For He is our God, And we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand.  [Psalms 95:6-7]


Then Ezra blessed the LORD the great God. And all the people answered, " Amen, Amen!"  while lifting up their hands; then they bowed low and worshiped the LORD with their faces to the ground. [Nehemiah 8:5-6]

We pray that all is well with you.  G-d is so good.  We had a wonderful time in worship, prayer, praise and fellowship.  Be healthy, be safe, be blessed, be found in Yeshua Ha'Mashiach.

SBMF Encampment And Meeting News:

The 2007 SBMF Encampment Was In San Antonio This Year.

We had a wonderful time at the worship services, study time and meetings.  The convention this year was fruitful.  We felt the covering of prayer from the saints in San Antonio.  We found out that there were two local Churches who were in prayer for the SBC Annual Meeting Events.  There was an atmosphere of the covering of G-d. 

There was a good turnout at the meetings this year, despite notifications of last minute cancellations from about 30 SBMF brothers and sisters.  We had a total of 62 members and guests in attendance this year.  There were several SBMF brothers and sisters who were on mission somewhere.  They were also not able to attend.  There were others who were not able to attend because of ministry, personal or financial reasons.  We pray that all who missed the meetings were blessed where they were and we missed them dearly.  I pray that all can attend our meetings in Indianapolis next year.  Please forgive me, but I pray "Baruch Ha'bah B'Shem Adonai" "Blessed is He who comes in the name of the L-rd."

Thursday afternoon and evening June 8th several of the members gathered together for some time of fellowship.  We went to the San Antonio River Walk and took a boat ride together.  What a time we had.

Friday afternoon June 9th, several of us met at the meeting room to set up the sound system and make final arrangements for the services.  Before we went back to our rooms to get ready for the meetings, we gathered together to pray for the meetings.

Friday evening (Erev Shabbat) we gathered together in worship.  On that Erev Shabbat we had a good size group of about 30 to 35 brothers and sisters.  Brother Ken Alpren lead us in worship with the assistance of Brother Mike Saffle and my wife Gwenn Worshill.  Ken’s wife Francis gave the blessing over the Shabbis candles.  The teaching was on Roman Chapter 9.  I will post the outline from that teaching on a page for the teaching notes.  

Please forgive me as I was not able to record the meetings and teachings.  My mp3 recorder malfunctioned.  

On Shabbat we had a total of 62 members and guests in attendance.  The Shabbat Yeshiva worship, praise, prayer and study was a blessing.  The teachings were informative and useful.  We had three speakers. 

Aslam Masih, a brother from the Church Planting Group Middle Eastern People Groups of the North American Mission Board spoke about the relevance of associational and Cooperative Program involvement.  He spoke about the need for prayer in this spiritual warfare.  His example of his going to a Somali Muslim community, in the USA, to preach the Gospel to the Muslims, was an encouragement to us.  Brother Aslam emphasized the following points:



•Leadership and Church Growth






Aslam said that this is a G-d sized task.

Brother Jack Kinsella (book author "The Last Generation - Ten Signs Of the End Of The Age", TV documentary writer, script writer for Hal Lindsey and writer, publisher and editor of the daily web ministry called “The Omega Letter”) spoke about the relevance of Israel in the Bible.   He taught us about the prophetic Biblical relevance of the Jewish people.  He spoke about the critical importance of the need for Jewish evangelism.  Brother Jack illustrated the condition of the present times and the relationship that Israel has with the coming of the L-rd.  You can see and hear his teaching on his web site:  

To obtain this new book please go to or look for ISBN: 978-0-9767811-8-9, published by True Potential Publishing, Inc.

Brothers Jack and Aslam did a wonderful job of firing up the troops.  We received excellent  comments from the SBMF attendees about their teachings.  This is the first time that a prophetic teaching has been given to the SBMF at an annual meeting.  The response was excellent.  Many of the SBMF attendees plan to use the Omega Letter as a resource for teachings and critical news updates.

Sister Amy Downey from Tzedakah Ministries introduced us to the ministry that she works for the building up of the saints.  The theme of her teaching was, "To Equip His Church to Reach His People".  You can contact Sister Amy at her web site:  Sister Amy has developed several ministry resources to help you reach the remnant of Israel.  These ministry resources are free and I pray that they will be a blessing to your ministries.

Steve Kaplan of Mount Vernon Baptist Church - Jewish Outreach Ministry came to our meetings and gave a report about his Jewish outreach ministry.  Brother Steve came with gifts for the attendees.  Brother Steve came with t-shirts that had a Mogan David on the back with the words “Jesus Loves You” in the center of the star.  You can reach brother Steve of ministry resources at

Brother Aslam and the North American Mission Board treated 54 of our attendees to lunch on June 9th.  The brothers and sisters all walked over to Schilo’s Delicatessen located at 423 E. Commerce, San Antonio, TX.  Orders had been placed in advance.  We thank the manager, Debbie, and the staff at Schilo’s Deli for taking such good care of us that day.  The food was good and the fellowship was wonderful.

After Lunch Brother Jack Kinsella answered questions about prophecy and the situation in Israel.  We could have kept him there, asking questions, for hours.

After a short break we assisted some of our member congregations and the sponsoring Church of a missionary, by representing them, in holding an ordination service for their ministers.  There were five Messianic Ministers ordained into the Gospel Ministry as Messianic Rabbis.  Each congregation sent representatives to witness the ordination service.  The SBMF was assisting the member congregations in the same way a local association would assist in an ordination.  In the months after the Annual Meetings we hope to be send an SBMF representative to those congregations for an ordination installation service. 

We scheduled two wonderful preachers to preach at the Ordination Service.  Baruch HaShem Yeshua.  Brother (Pastor) Larry Kindrick from First Baptist Church, Hardy, Arkansas preached the charge to the congregation.  Director of Missions, Brent Powell (Black River Baptist Association, Hoxie, Arkansas) preached the charge to the Ministers who had been called to ordination as Ministers of the Gospel and Messianic Rabbis.


The brothers who were ordained into the Ministry of the Gospel as Messianic Rabbi:         

Harold Lee Garrett          Chaim ben Robert                                Hardy, AR.

Michael Paul Saffle         Mika'el Sha'ul ben Gerald                   Wichita, KS.

Jay Anson Fielding        Schmoel Hillel ben Allya Nussen     Marietta, GA.

Kenneth Alpren               Chanan ben Mordecai                         Nashville, TN.

Jay Isbell III                       Yesi ben Vilim                                        Bessemer, AL.

"In our contact with the saints we should have only one motive: To minister Christ to them so that they may grow in the L-rd.  Then G-d will send His Word as the rain and snow that water his people to sanctify, transform, and conform them to His image for the building up of the Body." (Marty Roberts, Chicago, Illinois) [Isa, 55:10-11; Eph. 4:15-16].

Our vision is to the accomplish the Goal of G-d’s Economy and to Gain His Testimony through the Body (the kadoshim - the saints), by building up the saints in one accord, founded on His Word.  

Where there is no vision, the people perish: [Proverbs 29:18 KJV]

The vision:  We must lead others to the Eternal Kingdom of Mashiach Yeshua.  Our one vision and one purpose is to bring new life into the Body and His Kingdom.  

We must work the good work of Christ together, running the race hand in hand so no one can fall behind and no one can compete by running ahead:  One body, one mind, one spirit, founded on the one true Gospel.

Our job in the SBMF is to help resource the brethren to lead others to Light and Life in Yeshua.  As Messianic Ministers of the Gospel we work this mission by lifestyle evangelism.  We work to help our ministers and missionaries be more effective in sharing Mashiach to our Jewish kinsman and all people groups.

After the ordination service we broke for supper. 

At 7pm we returned to the meeting room to hold our Annual Business Meetings.  Upon our arrival one of the convention centers employees came to us to ask for prayer.  This person came to know us in the short time we were in San Antonio.  The entire group at the meeting stopped everything and laid hands on this person with prayer.

When we started our meeting the ministry representatives in attendance gave ministry reports.  Upon moving to new business and the elections the membership in quorum voted unanimously to suspend the elections for one year.  This was a motion from the floor as they were pleased with the progress and direction the fellowship had been moving.  This gives the leadership team one more year to continue to resource the members’ ministries to help them share Yeshua with the nations and all creation.  Acts 1:8; Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15

Sunday afternoon we had a Davidic Dance Practice.  There was 14 people in attendance.  This was a time of fellowship and fun.

During the Pastors conference we were able to witness some wonderful teachings, worship and fellowship. 

SBMF Business Meetings:

During the SBC Annual Meeting we were able to have numerous meetings to gain resources for our SBMF brothers and sisters.  We will continue to work on these projects.

We met with several Church leaders and Associational Directors of Missions to build partnerships.  We spoke about our fellowship and the members within.  We plan to continue working together as we help them reach the Jewish communities around their local Churches.  We also pray that local Churches will be called to support Messianic works in their areas.   

We met with  Mark Hobafcovich and Aslam Masih from NAMB.  At this working lunch we were able to illustrate the call to us to preach the Gospel to the Jewish people and our need to be known within the SBC.  Brother Mark, Aslam and your SBMF leadership are working hard to build a proactive working relationship with NAMB.

We are presently working with NAMB on the following projects: Beth Chaim; We are looking for a Worship location for Valley Of Blessings in Greensboro, NC; A new work in the Atlanta area; a new work in New York City; Missions service Corps status for our missionaries; We are also working on several other future Jewish outreach projects;  We are working on a booth for next years SBC exhibit floor; We are also working on financial help for the SBMF.

We also hope to work with Brother David Powell from NAMB to gain partnerships for our member ministries.  A few weeks before the convention brother David came to Illinois and met me concerning the SBMF.  We spoke about the vision of the SBMF and our outreach to the Jewish communities all over the USA.  We spoke about our need to build partnerships with SBC local churches.  We also spoke about ways to let our SBC local churches and associations know that we are available to help them preach the Good news of Yeshua to to the Jewish people, who live around them.

Please pray for these dear brothers and sisters at NAMB.  There are so many who have been working to help our fellowship.  Please life up brothers Aslam Masih, Mark Hobafcovich and David Powell.  They are working closely with us to resource our SBMF ministries.

Continuing Education Options:

We were blessed to meet and speak with brothers and sisters from several universities and seminaries that build up the saints to build up the saints.  These schools have classes available to help you in your ministries.  Please contact them if you are interested in continuing your education.  These schools have educational programs like, on-line studies, on-site group training, on-campus and distance learning programs.  There are several other SBC schools and SBC sponsored schools who can help you grow in your ministries. The schools that we spoke to at the SBC Annual Meetings are listed below:

The Pasche Institute Of Jewish Studies: 4010 Gaston Ave. Dallas, TX. 75246 214-818-1309

Criswell College: 4010 Gaston Ave. Dallas, TX. 75246  800-899-0012

Luther Rice University: 3038 Evans Mill Rd. Lithonia, GA 30038  800-442-1577

Liberty University:  1971 University Blvd. in Lynchburg, Virginia  434-582-2064

Midwest Baptist Theological Seminary: 5101 N. Oak Trafficway, Kansas City, MO. 64118 800-944-MBTS


Please Continue To Pray:  

We are praying that we will be able to be fully sponsored by NAMB in the future.  We pray that NAMB will request SBC Convention Relations to allow us to have a booth at the SBC Annual Meeting in Indy, next year.  We need our brothers and sisters in the SBC to know who we are and how we can help.  

We would like to let our SBC Brothers and Sisters know who we are and how we can help them in this race we run together, leading the nations and our Jewish kinsman to Yeshua.  To this date several SBC ministries and Churches have used the services of or partnered with groups like the MJAA, UMJC, Chosen People Ministries and Jews for Jesus.  We need to be more visible to our SBC Brothers and Sisters.  Without the support of NAMB this can not be accomplished.  

At the SBC Annual Meeting in Nashville the Credentials Committee voted to turn our being recognized by SBC over to NAMB for evaluation.  Your leadership has been working hard to illustrate the function, purpose and need for our people group lifestyle evangelism to NAMB and SBC. 

The Cooperative Program:

Please remember to support the NAMB Cooperative Program as this is the way we can receive help and funding for our members' ministries.  If you are giving to your local or state SBC associations we appreciate this gift of love.  If you are not able to give to a local or state SBC association please send your donations to the SBMF, marked as dedicated to the Cooperative Program and we will add it to that account and send your donation on the NAMB.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.  For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. [Rom 1:16-17 KJV]

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. [Matt 28:19-20 KJV]

Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. [John 4:35 KJV]

Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. [Mark 16:15 KJV]

The voice of one crying in the wilderness:  "Prepare the way of the L-RD; Make straight in the desert A highway for our G-d.   Every valley shall be exalted And every mountain and hill brought low; The crooked places shall be made straight And the rough places smooth;  The glory of the L-RD shall be revealed, And all flesh shall see it together;  For the mouth of the L-RD has spoken."  [Isaiah 40:3-5  NKJV]

Shema Ysrael Adonai Elohaunoo, Adonai Echad 

Hear Israel the L-rd our G-d, the L-rd is One


To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood — and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father —  to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. BEHOLD, HE IS COMING WITH THE CLOUDS, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen.  "I am the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord God, " who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty." [Rev 1:5-8 NASU]


I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet, saying, " Write in a book what you see, and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea."  Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking with me. And having turned I saw   [Rev 1:10-12  NASU]


Remember it is about John heard, he turned, and he saw.  To truly see you need to turn to Yeshua.  I heard - I turned - I saw - I found Salvation in the L-rd.  


The L-rd is knocking at the door of your heart.  Will you let him in?


Baruch Shem K'vod Malchooto lay'olam vay'ed

Bless His Glorious Name Whose Kingdom is Forever and ever


The L-rd bless you, and watch over you; The L-rd make His face shine on you, and be gracious to you;  The L-rd lift up His countenance on you, and give you peace.   [Numbers 6:24-26]


Shalom Alechem
