We wish you a wonderful Christmas and a blessed 2012!
We can look back on 2011 with great thankfulness. In the last year, the Lord has greatly blessed the global Christians for Israel ministry in many ways. Representatives of most C4I offices met for our bi-annual Forum in Jerusalem in March 2012, in which we enjoyed a special time of prayer, fellowship and vision building. We were greatly encouraged by the inspiring stories from each C4I country. It was incredible to see and hear how much work you are all doing, and to witness the passion and creativity in the C4I family. The C4I branches are growing and developing. We have a new team in the USA, and we have welcomed many new C4I branches and representatives in Africa. Read more
