Shalom Chaverim v’ Mishpocha,
Well another year has come and gone, and Carol and I will soon be on a flight (9/26/19) to the states to visit with our dear families and friends. We will also be sharing at different fellowships and churches about what Father God is doing through the Father’s Heart Ministry. When we arrive in the states we will be staying our first night at our dear brother’s and sister’s in the Lord (Jeroen & Robin) home in Arcadia, Indiana. They in turn will be cat/house sitting for us in Israel. We will also be blessed by them to be able to use their van on the upcoming 5,000 mile adventure. The next day will find us on our way to our daughter’s (Dana) to visit with her and the family in Rogers. Arkansas. While there we will also be visiting with our son Tommy and his family, and getting to see grandchildren and great grandchildren, two of which we have never met before. From there we head to Lewisburg, Tennessee to be with Carol’s mom and her two sisters and their families. After a week or so we will head to Foley, Alabama to visit our daughter (Angela) and her family. Here we will visit dear friends and spiritual brothers and sisters in different fellowships and churches. While there we will take a few days and go to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to visit with some dear friends. We want to thank the Atkinsons for opening up their home to us once again. After about a month in Alabama we will head east to visit with our dear friends at Hineni Fellowship in St. Augustine, Florida. While there we will be hosted by our dear brother and sister in Yeshua, the Bishops. Once again we thank them for their hospitality. After this stop we head north to visit once again with a dear couple, Mark and Jan Belue. Each year that we visit FIRE Church we are so blessed to have a place to stay and good fellowship. Once again, we thank them for their hospitality and support. Our next stop will be in Bel Air, Maryland to visit with our daughters (Jennifer & Tammy) and their families. After about a week or so, we will head to our daughter’s (Robin) and her family in Mason, Ohio. What a blessing it will be to see them and the grandchildren. We certainly do miss them all while we are serving in Israel. Speaking of which, we are planning on heading back to Israel on or around December 10th. Please keep all these plans in your prayers, and pray that Father God will raise up supporters for the upcoming year and for our plane tickets back home.
We want to conclude this newsletter with a prayer request and an update. Carol and I have been visiting and ministering to a holocaust survivor named Ruth. She has so much pain and unforgiveness toward God that it is hard to penetrate the walls that she has put up. But recently Father God opened the door for me to share my testimony, and Carol got to minister the Word to her pertaining to Yeshua. She has also called Carol a couple of times when she has felt upset, and allowed Carol to pray with her. That in itself is a miracle, because we were told that she doesn’t want to hear anything pertaining to God. In the photo you will see Carol giving Ruth a good bye kiss as we told her that we will be going to the states. Please keep Ruth in your prayers, that God will minister to her and keep her safe while we are gone. We also bought her the book by Corrie Ten Boon, The Hiding Place. Please pray that Father God will use this tool to lead her to Himself. Amen
Once again we want to thank you all who support this ministry in finances and prayers. We are going to need a financial miracle this trip seeing that our tickets have gone up $500. and now stand at $1,900 each.
Blessings to you all in Yeshua’s wonderful name. The name above all names.
In His Service,
Frank & Carol

About Frank & Carol LaPorta
The Father’s Heart Ministry (FHM) started back in April 2004 and is totally based on God’s Word in Matthew 25:34-40. In short what these verses state is that we are to minister to the needy of the world. That is what Carol and I, by the leading of the Holy Spirit, are doing here in Israel.
