Some Good News and Some Not So Good News
The day after the Brit Mila, circumcision ceremony for our son Avi and his wife Liora's precious baby Ezra Yeshaya, the Ministry of Interior (MOI) denied Ezra citizenship and now they're threatening to remove our son's citizenship! Avi and Liora have been married for six years living in Israel, yet the MOI has repeatedly refused to grant her the right to be a citizen as a spouse of an Israeli Jew.
The MOI continually violates the law, including one that says anyone who's been here more than ten years can't have their citizenship revoked; we've been here 17 years. A few years ago we endured a long court battle for our older son Ariel and his wife Shayla, who was finally granted residency status. So the MOI is clearly messing with this Texas-Israeli family again! We believe it's due to our sharing Messiah but that's not going to stop because Adonai called us to share His love with others. While it's frustrating and expensive, we understand that we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against powers and principalities who do not want Adonai's promises to be fulfilled, especially the one about ALL ISRAEL WILL BE SAVED!
