To Zion's Family and Friends,
"May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us;
Establish the work of our hands for us
Yes, establish the work of our hands."

Please keep in mind that it is God, not the stock market that provides for us. Sometimes our faith may be weak or small, but we must avoid being skeptical of what God has already done for us and His provision and when our faith is weak, resources are low and our doubts are the strongest. Remember, God can open the floodgates of heaven (Malachi 3:10-12). We see this principle written clearly in 2 Kings 7:1-20 when Elisha told the people that God said he would deliver them when the situation seemed hopeless; then the king's officer said that it just couldn't happen! Why (?), because his faith and hope were gone, but God's words came true anyway (Jer. 32:27). One of the lessons being taught is that sometimes we become pre-occupied with the problems (No oil and gas has been found yet in commercial quantities in Zion's wells and that coupled with the current stock market conditions) will sometimes cause us to be overly concerned with these issues when we should be looking for opportunities and moving ahead (2 Kings 7:3-7).
So, instead of focusing on the negatives, we should develop an attitude of expectancy. And if we say that God cannot rescue someone (or a company) or that a situation is impossible demonstrates a lack of faith in God's ability to do a miracle. I want you all to know that I have seen God, over the past 30 years, do a lot of miracles for Zion and because of that we are quickly moving forward with our plans in Israel (Deut. 1:21).
We will be re-assessing our current areas and acquiring and analyzing new seismic data and we will be meeting with drilling contractors and working towards finalizing our plans to create Zion Drilling someday in Israel. Part of our discussions will also include our planning a new three-well drilling program. I feel that it is an absolute must, after we re-confirm where to drill, that we are able to continually drill wells in Israel without anymore lengthy or prolonged delays. So, please be patient and we will provide you with new updates as we move forward. Of course, the nation of Israel still needs your continuous prayers (and Zion requests them too) (Psalm 77:1).
I am sending you this email to encourage you all to continue to "Stand-fast" and don't waver or be discouraged (Joshua 1:6-9). Keep in mind the current stock price isn't what's important; our mission is still to find oil and gas in commercial quantities and then the stock price will increase to whatever God wants it to be! (Job 8:7)

In Israel this year we recorded a short video clip sharing my 30 year faith journey in fulfilling the vision G-d gave me of discovering and producing oil for the Land and people of Israel.
