We are into YEAR 2 of Shelanu! "They" (the Israeli government, or at least the very religious members of it) sought to shut us down and shut us up—but here we are! Sharing the GOOD NEWS of Yeshua the Messiah with THOUSANDS of Israelis weekly. Thanks to your prayers and support and our amazing team at Shelanu.
I always enjoy hearing the report each month from Evan Santoro, our Station Manager. When you are daily in the trenches—taping, producing, marketing, answering emails (some nice, some not so nice)—it's nice to "look up" and see the bigger picture of where we have been and where we are going.
Below are some of the highlights of how Shelanu TV is impacting Israel!
We are continuing to produce several shows weekly for the channel. Just last week, we filmed another episode of "The Living Room." It was a very powerful testimony of an Israeli woman who grew up in a religious household but found Yeshua. These testimonies are particularly effective as there are a lot of religious Jews in Israel, and such testimonies tend to touch their hearts and cause them to listen. We are excited about this episode and are praying and believing that it will bear much fruit.
I am amazed that we have been able to produce so much content in such a short period of time. It is the grace of God! As I have previously stated, there has never been so much native Israeli, born-again content available.
We know that the people of Israel have suffered so much at the hands of 'so-called' Christians over the years, turning them off to the idea of Yeshua being the Messiah, but as this God-injected content is being released, we are weakening the walls of disbelief and bias, cracks are forming, and the light of the truth is seeping through and reaching the hearts of the people. We are going to see a change in Israel as people turn toward the light of the life of Yeshua and are saved!
We reached just under a quarter of a million people during the month of June.
It takes about $12,000 a month to cover the costs of production EACH month for Shelanu. Our shows are high-quality—first because, as followers of Yeshua, we want our viewers to see excellence, and secondly, because we know that Israelis have HIGH standards and would not even give our channel a second look if we ever put out anything less than the best!
We are ALL eager to see MILLIONS of Israelis come to believe that Yeshua is the Messiah—but with all harvests, it's vital that you know what SEASON you are in. I'm no farmer or gardener—at least not in the natural, but I am in the spirit! Right now, it is SEED PLANTING time and WATERING time…and perhaps, even before that, there are some areas where we are breaking up the ground to get it ready to PLANT.
JOIN US in this exciting adventure to reach ALL of ISRAEL with the gospel.
Until all Israel is saved,
PS… I hope to have some exciting news for you soon. We are in discussions with the creators of The Chosen to air it on Shelanu with Hebrew subtitles. Pray!
