On Tuesday September 29th it a was pleasure to host the :Loving God Blessing Israel” cross Canada tour here in Windsor.  The team wanted to spend some time in Windsor for a very special reason.  In 1917 Fort Edward located here in Windsor was still under British control.  The British at that time were given special permission to recruit volunteers from as far away as the United States to help form what was to be known as the Jewish Legion made up of the 38th through 42nd battalions of the Royal fusiliers.  The 39th battalion was stationed at Fort Edward while receiving special ops training prior to their mission to liberate Palestine from The Ottoman Empire during the first world war. Among the troops 39th was a man named David Ben-Gurion who you may recognize as the first Prime Minister of the restored state of Israel.

Once a Muslim extremist dedicated to the destruction of Israel now speaks of his Love for Not only the Jews but Jesus as well.

This historical connection to Israel prompted our Mayor Paul Beazley to personally welcome the team to Windsor.  He expressed his long standing desire to honor the towns connection to Israeli history and proposed the planning of a hundredth year celebration commemorating

An amazing man with an Incredible testimony.

Ben-Gurion’s first military experience received at Fort Edward.  This opens the door to the church to be a part of something that will build positive relations with the government of Windsor, the Hants Historical society, the local Jewish community, some international ministries and all while sharing the gospel in word and action.

This Event was packed with many blessings from praying over the Town, for Israel, For

Canada. The Shofar was blown that day and a blessing of peace was spoken over the town. It was truly a wonderful time of prayer and blessing.
