Meeting of the Friends of Zion

Genesis 12:1-3

Dear Brothers-Friends of Zion:

שלום עליכם
(Shalom Aleichem) Peace Be Unto You!

Days ago I wrote
 about the tremendous opportunity that the Lord is giving us to bring to Fortaleza Dr. Ben Abraham, a Jewish Polish survivor of four concentration camps during the Second World War (1939-1945). He miraculously escaped the genocide brought by Hitler, despite losing almost all his relatives (200 in all; only he and a cousin survived). He made a commitment to dedicate his life to denounce the crimes of Nazism. He lives in Sao Paulo and is president of Sherit Hapleitá (Brazilian Association of Survivors of Nazism). Today at 87 years of age,  with fifteen books in print (among them: "And the World Stayed Silent"), he has been honored with the noble Golden Key of Yad Vashem in Jerusalem and the Medal of Merit from USP (University of Sao Paulo).


Author Ben Abraham credits Dr. Thomas L. Gilmer, president of Amigos de Sião (Friends of Zion) and the Trinitarian Bible Society of Brazil, and Pastor José Infante, Jr., pastor of Brazil's largest independent Baptist Church, with having encouraged him to begin to take speaking engagements concerning the Holocaust, about 30 years ago.  They gave him the first opportunity to do so at Temple Baptist Church of Indianópolis in São Paulo.  

Dr. Gilmer introduced me to Dr. Ben Abraham and encouraged me to bring him to Fortaleza to speak at our Amigos de Sião meeting, which he and Pastor Alexandre Dutra helped us begin in 2010.  Pastor Alexandre, who works full time with Amigos de Sião (or Associação Internacional de Missões aos Israelitas), was the speaker for our first meeting of Amigos de Sião. 

The President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff, greets the writer Ben Abraham, president of Sherit Hapleitá (Brazilian Association of Survivors of Nazism), during the ceremony of the International Day of Remembrance for the Victims of the Holocaust on January 27 at the headquarters of the State Public Ministry of Rio Grande do Sul in Porto Alegre.

Dr. Ben Abraham accepted our invitation and will remain nine days with us in Fortaleza (September 4-12).  Because of his advanced age, he will come with his wife, Mrs. Miriam, who is also part of the discussions and helps in the lectures. I ask your prayers that the Lord God will open doors and opportunities to use the testimony of this couple to warn people about the hatred and contempt the world promotes against Jews, including many who deny or minimize the Holocaust.  I will take them for interviews in newspapers, on the radio and TV. I will try to schedule lectures at universities and associations, as well.

We will have a special MEETING OF FRIENDS OF ZION on Wednesday, September 7, when he tell you about their own experiences in concentration camps, and also on Saturday, September 10, he will conduct a lecture on Israel's War of Independence (1947-1948).

Dr. Abraham is very friendly, and he and his wife put themselves completely at our disposal so we could make a schedule with the greatest number of commitments. Therefore, we ask help of the brethren to allow more talks and events. Dr. Elpidio Nogueira (Fortaleza City Councilman and a believer in Jesus Christ) will endeavor to make a City Hall tribute to Dr. Ben Abraham. We also intend to have a ceremony in the Legislative Assembly.  So I count on your prayers and help in ideas, plans and contacts.

Some brothers, knowing the high costs (airfare, hotel accommodation, food, transportation and distribution), were willing to help bring this project of Dr. Ben Abraham to the City of Fortaleza, and asked me to give a bank account number to deposit their contributions.  The information is provided below, and I would request that, that if you make a deposit, please let me know by email, so that we can make an accounting of expenditures and contributions.

Above all, thank you for your support, for emails sent with encouragement and asking for information on how to help.  Also, praise God for the words of support and  commitment to pray for this project.

May the Lord richly bless you as He promised to bless those who bless Israel (Genesis 12:1-3).

"Pray for the shalom (peace, fulfillment, blessings of bliss) of Jerusalem.  They shall prosper that love thee. "  (And all who love Israel to receive the Lord's Shalom "(expanded translation of Psalm 122:6)
