    Amen brother Zola, is there anything too hard for Ha Shem?
    You will be high and lifted up for the tottal recovery
    of your “symptom.” As I did not check into the details, I
    know that your life is inscribed in the palm of Adonai’s hand.

    Dear Zola, My husband and I watch your show every week and are greatly blessed by it. It is our favorite Christian program. You can rest assured that we will be praying for you during your upcoming surgery and the attendant recuperation period. But, in the meantime, may I share with you some pointers that I stumbled into when I recently lost 80 pounds? You see, three years ago, I carried almost 220 pounds on my 5’5″ frame and I had been exhibiting some serious signs of the beginnings of heart problems: swollen feet, breathlessness and a burning in my throat and upper chest whenever I walked very far. So, for these and other looming health symptoms of dire days ahead, I became determined to lose almost half of me. Imagine my utter surprise when, on the first day of my new diet, when I ate only once a day and ate far fewer calories in my one meal a day (less than 1,000), plus far less starchy carbohydrates and absolutely no sweets, I put my feet up that evening and there was no swelling at all! Not only that, all the other symptoms I had of heart problems went away immediately, too. As it turned out, I apparently had been eating far more calories and carbohydrate grams than my body could handle. And,better yet, I haven’t had any more symptoms of heart problesm in the three years I’ve followed this diet, either. You can give it a try and see if it helps you, too. I bet it will. Shalom!

    Shalom, Brother Zola,
    Just to let you know that you are in my prayers. I know that your surgery will go well; and you will feel like a “new” man when you are recovered, fully and completely whole, IN JESUS NAME!. I am saving my money to take a tour with you to the Holy Land, I pray that it will be possible even with the so called “dividing” of the Gaza strip. I pray against a world war, be well, Zola………….We need you!.
    In His love, Elaine

  6. Sandy M. Says:

    Zola – your life has been, and continues to be, an inspiration to many. May this adventure also be used in God’s work to reach people and increase the flock – as always, in Jesus’ name.

  7. Heidi Olson Says:

    Dear Zola:

    I watch your program as often as i can and i must tell you that you are a true inspiration to me. Your Jewish heritage has given you a great gift to have the knowledge that you do. My dream is to go to the Holy Land someday and i know this will come to pass because the Bible tells us it will. If i do not make it in this life i pray that i will see the kingdom in the next. I know you will be in good hands for your surgery and i will pray that you recover quickly so that your ministry can fulfill the needs of those who so desperately need the Gospel. You are a truly gifted man and i believe God has further plans for you on earth. He is with us ALWAYS! Shalom!

    Your Sister in Christ Jesus,


  8. Karen Lamb Says:

    You are very much in my prayers! Be assured that God is with you and will sustain you through this!I am anxious to see you back on the internet as always, giving us information about Israel and of course, our own country, which our own newscasters don’t even do! God bless you and I am praying for the peace of Jerusalem! Karen Lamb

  9. Bob McCarty Says:

    Dear Brother Zola, You are in my prayers, daily. My prayers are for you, your family and your Ministry. I’m asking Yeshua to let you stay with us, yet a little while. Your ministry is so vital for those who are seeking the truth in these Last Days. Your ministry has been such a blessing to so many of us. I’m looking forward to seeing you on TV until He comes back for us. Shalom, my friend.

  10. Charlotte Alford Says:

    Dear Pastor Zola,

    The same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, dwells in me and all Born-Again-Believers. Throughout the Bible Jesus just spoke the WORD and people were healed. My dearest Pastor Zola, I speak God’s WORD to you and your family, Isaiah 53:4-5, “Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we cosidered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.” I thank God for your healing in Jesus name. Amen


  11. Russell Jones Says:

    Dear Zola,
    As you face this next challenge in your life God is there with you and will keep you
    in his hand safe and available for His service. With the state of today’s world and
    the work still left to be done before Yeshua returns, your work is not done. This is
    a great opportunity to demonstrate to those who have not chosen Christ, that faith is
    the substance of Christianity and the basis for your successful recovery. We will be
    praying for you and Sandra and your family.

  12. Rev. Roy G. Gomez Says:

    Dear Brother Zola, I heard of your up coming surgery. Be encouraged brother, I too had open heart surgery three years ago. I feel better that I had in years, in fact I feel 10 years younger. Press in during your recovery and stay in the gym. My prayers are with you. I trust that my dream of going to the Holy Land will be completed this year during the Feast of the Tents. Shalom — Love Pastor Roy “Cowboy” Strength and Honor

  13. John&Layla Gonzalez Says:

    Beloved Brother Zola;
    As a child of the King your healing has already been purchased by His
    stripes. We join our faith with yours for the manifestation of His promise
    found in Isaiah 53 & 1 Peter 2:24 for your full recovery. May Yehovah guide
    the hands of those responsible for your care.

    John&Layla Gonzalez

  14. Inez Butler Says:

    Dear Zola,
    We need our shining light for Israel. There aren’t many out there! Praying the Lord will keep you with us many more years. If ever Israel needed a voice it’s now. Remember as a small child getting my shoes from Mr. Fleet (Jewish) who owned the store. He became a believer and attended the Baptist church where I went. When I began work as a nurse, he was a terminal patient at the hospital. I did not know him, but passed by his room to see him. He was talking, saying how he wished he could go to Israel and tell his people of Jesus (Yeshua). Made an impression. Thank you for your faithfulness to your calling.

  15. Dorie lee Pearsall Says:

    Dear Friend in Jeshua,
    God will be with you through your surgery on Thursday, and we will be asking His angels to surround you as HE guides the physicians hand.
    We love you and watch your program every time that we can on PAX and INSPirational channel. We read every word of your newsletter to keep ourselves informed. We need you, dear Shepherd!
    May our dear Saviour Bless you and your wife.

    Dorie and son Bill

    may the healing hand of the lamb of God touch you

  18. Jacqui Says:

    we love you, and are praying for you, hope to one day go on one of your tours to Israel.

    Please, I also want you to know that on FOX news, the Jewish DR. who is not so much into natural health did say it is true a glass of Pomegranate a day will definatly lower cholestrol, remove it from the arteries. love and prayers

  19. Mike Winters Says:

    Hi Zola,

    I really appreciate your program in the East Tennessee area. I have learned a lot about the Jewish people and have learned to love them through your ministry. I heard your prayer request on the Sunday afternoon program, and have placed your name on the prayer list at our church. I pray that God will give you a successful surgery and a speedy recovery.

    God bless!

  20. Al & Sharron Eggebroten Says:

    Dear Zola,
    We are praying for you surgery on Thursday. We pray that the Lord will give wisdom, knowledge, and guidance to the anethesiologists, doctors, and nurses. We pray that your surgery will be successful, that you have a speedy recovery, that you and your wife will be comforted and encouraged by the Holy Spirit. We’re looking forward to your future broadcasts and sometime in the future we hope to go to Israel with you and your wife.

  21. Charles and Carol Zajicek Says:

    Dear Zola,

    You and your ministry stay in our prayers, and now more than ever with your upcoming surgery. Your name will be posted all over our house as a constant reminder to pray without ceasing. I’ll send out an email for prayer in your behalf. We’ve watched your program for years; I record it and we watch it together on the weekends. The result is always the same; notes get taken, verses written down, and Bibles opened so the newly-understood verses can be solidified in our minds. Your manner on the program makes us feel like we’re there in the room with you! When we have questions, we search your website, and pull your books. You never let us down! You haven’t wasted your many gifts, talants, and knowledge, and we and countless others have been so blessed and discipled because of your willingness before the Lord. We pray in faith that you will be in palm of God’s hand during this procedure and the following recovery. With a great deal of affection I say,

    May God richly bless you, your family, and co-workers in ministry,
    Charles and Carol Zajicek

  22. Lynne Hall Says:

    Dear Zola:

    I am praying for you. I had a 3-way bypass and it closed up in 11 months – taken from the leg. They could not use my mammary artery because it was too short and wouldn’t reach. So I praise God that they will be able to use yours. Recovery will be much quicker.

    You can’t die until your mission is accomplished.

    In Yeshuah,
    Lynne Hall

  23. Michael Martin Says:

    Dear Zola, I have just learned of your upsoming surgery and will ask others to be in prayer for the same. Thank you for your ministry to all. Michael Martin

  24. Ruth B. Says:

    Dear Zola,
    May God be with you as you have your surgery tomorrow. I will be praying for you.
    In Christ,

  25. Donna Willis Says:

    Love and prayers from some of your fellow Pilgrims Norman Baker (who is now 87-years-old and living in a retirement home in Lufkin, TX), Donna, David, and Cindy Willis–and your non-pilgrim, but medically trained friend Tom, who would say, “Obey Dr’s orders, and speedy recovery!”

  26. Jimmy Wells Says:

    Dear Zola,

    I was very sorry to read that you will need surgery. My sincere prayers are with you, your immediate family, and your extended worldwide family of “true” believers. You cannot know how much I have learned from your ministry that I could not have gotten elsewhere. May our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ bless you during your ordeal and hopefully short recovery. We all need you at your best until the rapture.

    Your friend and supporter,
    Jimmy Wells

  27. Mary U Says:

    Praying for you Zola, when God healed a hole in my lower left ventricle valve in 1980, a keen awareness came to me that I would live out the days He has numbered for me and that time had not yet arrived.
    Abundant Blessings

  28. The Ronald Pirtle Family Says:

    Dear Zola,
    Our prayers and thoughts are with you.
    You’ve touched our family’s life in more ways than we can express. We wish you all the best health and a speedy recovery.

    Rhonda-To Zola: You’re the coolest teacher I know. God Bless you.
    Mr and Mrs. Pirtle: You’ve showed us the true way and deepened our love for Israel.
    We love you.

  29. Rev. Wayne Stokes Says:

    Dear Zola and family….
    Our prayers are with Zola and all of you of his family at home and staff of Zola Ministries. We trust our precious Lord to move in a great way that His will be done in that hospital as it is in heaven. Bless you for the work that you do for Christ. You heavenly bank account must surely be overflowing! God be with you all.
