Our group has been connecting for three years now, as we continue to grow closer to each other and to the Lord. We have seen some members come and some go, but always carry each other around in our hearts. As a primarily singles group, this is an important connection to make, as friendship sees us through many personal trials.
In 2016 a small group of us visited the Holy Land with a stop in Amsterdam to pay our respects at the Anne Frank House. The trip was open to all, and we had a few people join the tour from outside our congregation. It was amazing to meet up with Mishpocha from another south Florida synagogue, as well as take the flight home with our very own Rabbi Neil and Jaime Lash!
Our monthly meetings continue to foster great conversation and help each other to grow in our understanding of our Abba and His plan for our lives (not to mention the great food that is ever present! )
As with years past, we celebrated Purim with a costume party/Esther reading that lasted into the wee hours of the morning; celebrated Passover and Rosh Hashanah; and let’s not forget our 3 ShabbatOn celebrations, with the last one under the sukkah at Ro’s house.
Our Chanukah party coincided with the Gregorian New Year, so we had a blast ringing in the New Year, playing games, and singing karaoke, as we recounted all the blessings bestowed upon us.
Our one disappointment this year was the cancelation of our Sabbath retreat. Perhaps it was the nearness to the holidays, but we trust that Abba’s timing is perfect. So when He says go, we will be ready.
Looking to the future, we will continue to foster and solidify relationships, meet together monthly, and add in new get-togethers (such as karaoke night, and game night) to our movie nights.

Men’s Prison Ministry
The ministry is to a congregation of Messianic believers in a prison called South Bay Correctional Facility (SBCF) in South Bay Florida, on US 27; 60.7 Miles from TAK. It consists of about 20 faithful men and grows to about 30 men or more during the celebration of the Lord's feasts or when there is food.
Our role is to enable them to celebrate the Lord's Feasts by providing them with food and different supplies such as matzo and grape juice for the weekly Shabbat Blessings. We give them a yearly teaching on mikvah and hold a mikvah service. With the help of Jewish Jewels, we provide them with Messianic Jewish calendars. They are overjoyed when we visit them – usually on Saturday mornings at 8:00 AM, about every other month. They provide some time for us to speak to them which we use to bring a word of encouragement from the Bible and greetings from our rabbis and the temple in general. They give the temple their tithes, which consists of stamps. Some of them forego a meal in order to get a stamp so they can tithe.
There is opportunity to work for the Lord in local prisons in Broward County. Our brother Anthony Hill, who also ministers with me at SBCF, has been faithfully ministering for years at a local jail in Broward County. This year I received clearance along with another TAK man to minister also in Broward County but have not yet visited.
I would like to offer my personal thanks to our seriously dedicated, very creative and highly anointed Music Ministry for consistently leading us into the Throneroom of God and special thanks to the TAK congregation for always being ready to enter into worship with us with exuberant joy and sincerity!
2017 Prayer Ministry Goals
Women’s Jail Ministry
Approximately 5 months ago, we were given the opportunity to have our own ministry as the TAK team on Monday nights. As we have more volunteers we will request an additional night for the TAK team to serve more extensively. We are planning to start including praise and worship in our time with the ladies and have been blessed to have a prayer warrior with us. We have also been blessed to see amazing responses of hope from the women we minister to and have had the opportunity to lead 3 inmates to know Yeshua.
We are looking forward to seeing how God uses us in the coming year to encourage them to choose God's way and not the world's way when they leave jail.
