It is with great sadness that we report the tragic killing of Ian Squire, a dear friend of all at New Foundations who has selflessly given of time, resources and expertise over the past years to establish a Vision Centre at our Enekorogha Clinic.
As has been widely reported in the press, Dr David Donovan and his wife Shirley along with Ian and Alanna Carson, were taken hostage by criminals on the 13th October. Alanna, an optometrist, came to help Ian with the training of our workers.
Ian was a man of faith, generous, good-humoured and compassionate and through his own organisation Mission for Vision has used eye care to reach communities with the love of Christ and to preach the Gospel.
Ian is survived by his wife and three children.
In respect to his memory, we have shut down all operations for the next month across all communities. The people of Enekorogha have marked his passing with a large turn out applauding his work and with pictures of him to express their sadness and bewilderment at his death.
The night before we were kidnapped Ian and Alanna presented certificates of competency to Jerusalem and Shakespeare marking the successful completion of both practical and written examination on refraction, the grinding of lenses and production of glasses.
We give thanks for Ian’s life, and will sorely miss his very dear friendship and partnership in the work.
We Should Expect Such Treachery From Politicians, But Not From Jewish Mission Organizations
By James Jacob Prasch
I personally was not surprised when this anti Zionist left wing politician supported Stephen Sizer. I fervently remain utterly disgusted however that Richard Harvey, Susan Perlman, and Jews For Jesus did their back slapping photo op visits to Sizer's pulpit as his Messianic Jewish stooges so he could tell the church "see - I am not so bad despite my links to Christian persecuting & Jew murdering Islamic terrorists, holocaust deniers, anti Semitic conspiracy theorists re. 9/11 etc. because 'Jews For Jesus' likes me".

UNESCO IS THROWING THE BIBLE IN THE GARBAGE!
Tell UNESCO To Keep Their Hands off of the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron. Abraham was a Jew, not a Palestinian!
This Petition will be sent to UNESCO.
Let Your Voice Be Heard!
I am writing to you as I am sure that you join me in feeling shock and heartbreak at UNESCO's latest ploy which throws the Bible and history into the garbage by denying the Jewish connection to our beloved city of Hebron.
UNESCO's vote, ironically in Poland, has declared the Tomb of the Biblical Patiarchs in Hebron a Palestinian Heritage Site. This effectively destroys the Jewish connection to this holy city where our forefathers and mothers are buried and where King David first established his capital.
If you are as outraged as I am, let your voice be heard and sign our petition to keep UNESCOâs hands off of Jewish Hebron.
Hebronâs Jewish history is indisputable. From Abraham's purchase of the Machpela Cave (Genesis 23), there has been 3,800 continuous years of Jewish presence in Hebron. The Jewish people and their history must not be removed.
UNESCO must hear loud and clear that the Palestinianâs are creating a fake history ploy against Israel. If you agree, sign the petition to keep Hebron a Jewish city.
Rabbi Dan Rosenstein
Executive Director of the Hebron Fund
PS - After signing the petition, please forward it to friends who are concerned about the future of Hebron!
It is with a sincere sense of grief that Moriel & Jacob Prasch learned that Antony Simon (from Manchester, a UK-born Jewish/Israeli evangelist) was killed in an automobile accident in Kurdistan, Northern Iraq while there on an evangelistic outreach.
Tony was led to Yeshua by Jacob Prasch in Israel on Christmas Day (around Hanukkah) in 1982 and emerged as a radical evangelist in The Middle East to both Jew and non-Jew alike. His zeal to see lost souls come to salvation in Jesus was without exaggeration nothing short of phenomenal.

Dear believers in grace,
We wish you all a blessed New Year in the Saviour of the world!
Teaching at an Elementary School
The first week and a half of December we went to another province to help teach at a Christian school. Most of the parents and students are not Christians so it was a good opportunity to share the gospel. I taught English to 1st-5th graders. The 4th and 5th graders were pretty good, but it was challenging to teach the 1st-3rd graders. There are few foreigners in that province so the children enjoyed seeing a foreigner and I got to hand out many tracts and also share Bible lessons at the flag pole and at chapel one day. Micah got to join the nursery school for 3 days until he got some kind of a stomach bug. He enjoyed learning very much and according to Khae was the most enthusiastic student in the class.
We came back to Chiang Mai in time to have a Christmas worship service at the Women’s Prison. We’re still teaching them from the book of Revelation. The massage class there is also going well—still a big group of about 80 students.
We had a Christmas party for our students and invited their parents also. I also invited my adult students. About 20 people came. We sang some Christmas songs and then Khae shared the gospel through the Christmas story and we gave everyone either a gospel of John in the Shan language or some Thai gospel books. Here are a couple of pictures from that.
John’s Signature Words
A couple months ago Khae read a book by a Thai Lutheran pastor who (following in Martin Luther’s footsteps) doubted that John wrote the book of Revelation or if it even should be in our Bible. I did a very interesting word study on this comparing the gospel of John, I-III John, and the book of Revelation. I think the results are beyond any coincidence. The book of Revelation not only has the “fingerprints” of John all over it, but the author also has such a rich knowledge of the Old Testament woven into the book (by divine inspiration)-- it is unmistakably God breathed. I’m attaching a short paper on that here.
Peace in Christ, Scott, Khae, and Micahberekiah.
Blessings from Israel.
Despite its battles and opposition from Satan and harassment from unbelieving Orthodox Rabbinic Organizations such as Yad L'Achim, we are witnessing a wonderful tide of steady growth in the Body of Yeshua in Israel. Moriel is committed to helping indigenous congregations inane way we can especially in the area of evangelism. But growth creates challenges and presents needs. The increase in numbers of Jewish believers we are seeing has been a blessing that at one time would have been unfathomable.
