Crete Report (Addition to Part I)
In the previous Crete Report, we failed to mention the scripture that Abba pointed out before we set out for our trip, and that accompanied us throughout our travels on the island: John 12:20-22, “Now there were certain Greeks among those who came up to worship at the feast. Then they came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida of Galilee, and asked him, saying, ‘Sir, we wish to see Yeshua.’ Philip came and told Andrew, and in turn Andrew and Philip told Yeshua” (emphasis added). That of course excited us to no end (as the Cretans are Greek of course), while today it occurred to us that perhaps they will see Yeshua through and in the Torah. It therefore may be quite significant that next June there is hope that the new Torah scroll that’s being written right now in Jerusalem will be brought into Crete’s Hania’s synagogue Etz Hayim (“tree of life”) to replace the two non-kosher Torah scrolls that are beyond repair (pending on the cost being covered through donations). So in place of two there should be one – perfect and usable Torah! Interestingly, Paul the apostle had come to Crete on a couple of his missionary journeys (see Acts chapter 27 and Titus).
