DATELINE: Manipur, India

It’s hard to express the  level of our joy following the conclusion of this Jewish Voice outreach. As we approach the lunch hour in Churachandpur, our Jewish Voice team is busy packing and readying their personal luggage for our long departure back home. We will first drive nearly two hours back to Imphal through the beautiful and lush hills of Manipur. We will pass through village after village with unending harvest-ready rice fields in between. This afternoon we fly from Imphal back to Delhi, followed by the final fight tomorrow night back to the United States.

We enjoyed a powerful morning together  in our closing Shabbat service. We enjoyed a wonderful time of Messianic praise and worship lead by Israel and Ronna. The worship was followed by nearly a full hour of testimonies and stories from the outreach week. Doctors, prayer warriors, line flow managers, administers . . . all wanting to tell of the great things they experienced this week in their respective outreach roles. It was an amazing time of celebration.

Prior to our arrival, we knew that the Bnei Menashe of Manipur were to be granted the right to make aliyah within the next several years. Little did we realize the full timeliness of our coming, although it was certainly planned in the heart and mind of God. We discovered that many of the people to whom we ministered will be making aliyah to Israel THIS MONTH and some to follow in February of 2013. Of all groups that we have ministered to this year, none have collectively been so close to their return to the Land of Israel. We give thanks to the Lord for His providential timing by allowing us to share the Good News of Yeshua with His people immediately prior to their return home to the Land of Israel!

This outreach is the concluding outreach of our 2012 outreach year. What an amazingly fruitful year this has been for our ministry. In previous years, we barely surpassed 30,000 patients treated in all combined medical outreaches (within a 12-month calendar year). Before coming to India, we stood on the precipice of a new outreach benchmark. We hoped to treat 6,640 or more patients in Manipur, which would put our year total past 40,000 total patients treated for the year. We are thrilled to announce that not only did we meet our goal for Manipur, but we surpassed it by more than 1,000 patients treated! Praise the Lord! Below are the concluding outreach statistics from this outreach. Thank you again for your continued prayers for our team. We sensed the prayers daily. The unity, favor, and final outreach results are directly related to your faithful prayer.
