The Least of These
The Graham Staines Story

The remarkable true story of Australian missionary Graham Staines, who, in 1999 met an unexpected fate in India while serving the leper population. Seen through the eyes of a fictional young journalist who goes undercover for a newspaper in hopes of exposing Staines as illegally proselytizing leprosy patients, he instead surprisingly finds a man who has given himself completely and unselfishly as a missionary to those patients. A humanitarian who unfortunately becomes a martyr and through his family shows the world what true forgiveness is upon his death.

Shot on location in India, The Least of These beautifully illustrates the power of love, hope and forgiveness to overcome hate. Fathom audiences will get to see the feature film in advance of its theatrical run, including an exclusive discussion with actress Shari Rigby, apologist Ravi Zacharias and speaker Krish Dhanam.

Currently playing in the Metroplex. Other locations may be available.

Prison Praise Report

Pure estimates of the impact of the gospel in prison – Suffice it to say more than 100 but less than 200 men made positive decisions for the Messiah this weekend in Middleton Unit. 30 volunteers Prayed during both services with inmates – deciding For Messiah. Plus at the alter call, 15 volunteers prayed with 50 plus men seeking to find the Lord. It was a blessed time. Pray that the MANY believers behind the wall will be able to shepherd and disciple these newly repentant men into a walk with Messiah.

If you as a Senior Need help with a household chore – please talk with Terry Watson 972-898-7877 so he can schedule your project.

Curious about what is clean and unclean?
What can you eat that is Kosher?
Not all products have a Kosher Seal but it doesn’t mean they have unkosher ingredients. Obtaining a Kosher seal costs money and some businesses don’t have the money to pay someone to perform a blessing and give them a seal.

Prepare for Passover

April 2019 J.B. Bernstein is coming to Eitz Chaim to teach us how to share our faith in preparation for the April 22nd Passover Seder Outreach to the community.

As Part of our preparation we are wanting all of our adults to work on memorizing verses to share with people they meet. We are beginning with John 1:12 and John 3:3 please try and learn it in the NIV  – this is the most user friendly version for non believers.

Week Seven Scriptures:
Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. (NIV)

Isaiah 59:1 Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear.  (NIV)
