Albert Veksler, Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast, arranged a meeting with Knesset member Tatiana Mazarsky. She was born in Russia, and after graduating from high school in the USSR, she made Aliyah. Here in the Land, her accomplishments brought her to the Knesset.
I had met Tatiana when she and I both spoke at a Jerusalem Prayer Breakfast in St Louis.
Shelli and I took a taxi to the Knesset and passed through security to the Knesset Lobby, where we arrived early. As I sat there waiting for Albert, I realized where I was. And how the Lord instructed us to pray for leaders. Here I sat where they are.! So I quietly lifted my voice and trusted the Lord for utterance.
Albert took us first to the Assembly Hall. One member was speaking. Albert said that he was speaking for the cameras as very few Knesset members were there.
In the picture I took, the u-shaped arrangement of seats is for the government ministers with portfolio. The seats to the right are for the pros and to the left, the opposition.
Tatiana was called to speak. She delivered a passionate speech on antisemitism.
As we sat in her office, she said to us, “No one can imagine how it feels to have people hate you just because you are born a Jew.”
She went on to tell us how she experienced it as a child in school in Russia. And how it feels now, with so many in the world hating Israel and the Jewish people—the unimaginable anti-Israel demonstrations, etc.
Nothing short of recognizing Satan as its source is conceivable.
Tatiana took us to lunch in the VIP restaurant. It was delicious. She explained that they have a top chef for this restaurant.
At 4:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., we had our wonderful Wednesday Moed call (Prayer Call & Noon Prayer). Communication with the Lord from Heavenly Jerusalem: Max from Jordan, and Shelli and me from earthly Jerusalem! Many, many saints from all across America and around the world.
Oh! The wonder of it all!
