I cannot begin to describe how I feel this morning! I am excited and completly overwhelmed to witness and take part in the birth of B’ney Yosef! It has been more than 2730 years since the Sons of Joseph, Ephraim, were a nation and only a few less since they were an identifiable people.
Yesterday, all of that changed. B’ney Yosef again is a people and have National, identifiable structure and leadership, even if only in exile.
May 28, 2015 marked the final day of the First B’ney Yosef Congress in Israel and we departed without specific plans, but waited expectantly on our Father to lead us. In small steps, many recorded on this blog, we began prayerful tentative steps that
culminated in an Interim Executive Team gathering in St Petersburg, Florida on March 3, 2016 for the final planning of the Summit which began the 4th. Last week in looking back, Al McCarn and I realized there are EXACTLY 40 weeks between those dates. Last night, the baby was born.
Besides affirming an Executive Cabinet, an oversight Elders Council was affirmed and Articles of Declaration were affirmed.
Significantly, every vote was unanimous, though preceded by discussion and much prayer.
Right now, I have much to do and limited to posting from my phone, but I promise to post details as I have time to process.
The worship and dance have been wonderful.
Fellowship has been sweet, much like that experienced in Ariel, Israel and at the National Shabbats and Plenary Session.
The work now begins in fleshing this all out, particularly at the regional and local levels, but the Ruach has led us this far and I am certain He will carry us forward.
For more information, see B’ney Yosef North America. Pray and prepare to participate. This is your nation!!
It is a new day!!
We, from the Netherlands, we were with you all time you spend at Tampa, in our thoughts and hearts, while our son Yahnathan was with you as one of the participants of Europe.
It was such an encouragement the obeydience of Ephraim and Rimona to organize the first Congress of Bney Yosef National at Ariel,Two groups as far as I know, were formed, Bney Yosef North America part and the Bney Yosef Europe. At the end of december 2015 Bney Yosef Europe organized a follow up gathering at Memmingen Germany and now this Summit of Bney Yosef North America.
At Memmingen the people who organized that ,spoke already of a baby who was born and it is…House of Yosef is coming to alive and want to act with the best they can.Our big challenge is to grow in unity.Probably a life changing challenge, because of all our differences.
But when the Father is building this, we will see nation growing in unity and shalom…
We do hope more corners of the earth will follow,
shalom, greetings and brachot,

Yahnathan had dinner with us last night. A blessing to be around the youth of this movement, particularly those who have the responsibility and vision that can guide them across the planet without supervision. You are blessed and Yah is glorified. I am much encouraged for our future.
