In this edition:
In this edition of The Messenger we are excited to inform you of some highlights of the recent and planned developments at Christians for Israel.
Of course there is much more going on behind the scenes. As we write, President Willem Glashouwer is on an intensive speaking tour in Paraguay, at the invitation of our partner Ebenezer Operation Exodus. Our Chairman Harald Eckert is having a well-earned break after an extremely intensive period with the Global Prayer Call which has taken him on speaking tours to over 20 nations on all continents in the last 12 months.
This will be the last edition of The Messenger before many of us go off for family vacation here in Europe. We would appreciate your prayers for many of us who are at the end of a tiring season, and we wish you and yours every blessings, and strength as we prepare for the new season.

Rev. Glashouwer visits Papua and Maluku Indonesia
Rev. Willem J.J. Glashouwer visited the Indonesian cities of Manokwari and Sorong at the Province of West Papua and Ambon City, the capital of the Province Maluku from April 20th until April 27th, 2015.
Compared to the other provinces in Indonesia, Papua and West Papua are quite different regarding the political situation there. This is why the flag of Israel, the Star of David can be raised. Even before Rev. Glashouwer arrived, there were already posters and a billboard on the main road at the city of Manokwari.
