Over 9 years ago on June 30, 2010, Steve Martin had left the third ministry he had worked for in the past 24 years (Vision for Israel with Barry and Batya Segal, after 14 years at Mahesh and Bonnie Chavda Ministries/All Nations Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, and 8 years total at Derek Prince Ministries (Ft. Lauderdale and Charlotte), finishing with the last five at VFI.
The providential reason in departing service at VFI was to start a new ministry, co-founded by my good wife Laurie and me. We called it Love For His People (officially formed in April 2010 with our USA non-profit, 501(c)3 approval) – primarily to bless the Jews of Israel, and specifically the believers within the nation – those who have come to acknowledge that Yeshua is the Messiah, HaMashiach.
As non-Jews, Gentiles, goyim, Christian Zionists (whatever label we have!), we began the organization/ministry to stand strong for the Jewish state of Israel, Yisrael – the Land of Israel. In this world, with nations continually becoming more anti-Semitic daily, we have been called, as the prophetic word in 2004 was spoken over us, as a “scepter for Israel.”
