    I am elated to see that you are doing so well!

  2. Carol Says:

    Praise God you look grrrreeeaaattt! That big red heart is almost as big as your own!

  3. L. S. Says:

    Lookin good Bro! Seeing your smile has made my day. I’ve been thanking God every two minutes for letting you stay with us. I honestly don’t think we have another 22 1/2 years until the Rapture so this should be the last bypass you’ll have to go through. Enjoy your time with the LORD over the next few months (I know He’s going to enjoy having you all to Himself). I sure do love you. Shalom.

  4. Molly Shumaker Says:

    WOW – PRAISE GOD! May His grace sustain you over the days and weeks ahead as you recover and return to good health! We love you and Sandra & celebrate LIFE with you! Grace & Peace in Yeshua.

  5. Chuck & GiGi Mills Says:

    This picture is truly worth a thousand words. Thank you and thanks to our good Lord for allowing us to get to know you, your family, and staff too. You’ve all blessed our lives. Get well soon, and keep on teaching us!

  6. Glenda Anderson Says:

    Thursday morning My daughter, Beth, and I were reading the Levitt Letter about your surgery. I asked Beth when it was scheduled and she said, Today!” So we stopped right there and interceded for you! The letter had been sitting around for a few days. God led us to open it at just the right time. My whole family is so glad that God has preserved you to continue to share His Word with the world. What a blessing! May the Lord continue to heal you, Zola.

    Zola, you look wonderful. Thanks for sharing that great smile with us even from your hospital bed! I’m keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

  8. Darlene Washburn Says:

    Zola, you look fantastic! I agree with the person who
    said you will not need another 22 1/2 years because we
    will all be with the Lord as soon as the rapture happens.
    It should be very soon the way things are going in Israel
    right now. What a joy that will be! I met you and
    Sandra when you came to Washington State about 4 years
    ago. The meeting you held was in a high school gymnasium
    and it was wonderful and enlightening. I just received
    your card today for this month! It is about Grace. I
    save them all. Thank you so much for your wonderful TV
    ministry and your newsletter. Your TV programs are
    recorded on DVD’s every week so I can watch them over and
    over again.
    Love to you and Sandra,
    Darlene Washburn

  12. J.P. Sloane Says:

    Dear Zola,
    I was under the opinion that you were going into the hospital in mid August. On Thursday July 28, 2005 (my wife’s birthday) I awoke with you on my mind and began praying for you. Later, that afternoon, I received a letter from Mark telling us that you were going in for surgery that day! Of course, I kept praying for you all day and night. Can you imagine what a cacophony of prayers is being heard in Heaven for you Zola?!!! I am overjoyed to see how well you are proceeding and, as with all your Christian family, will continue praying for you, your lovely wife Sandra, your son Mark, family and staff.
    God’s continued grace my friend and brother.

  15. Kelly Ann Says:

    Well it’s just like I figured….you DO have a big heart! (o: I am thankful all went well for you brother. I will continue to pray for you.


  16. John H Says:


    Well, this will certainly make it easier for you to get in and out of the bunkers you seem to find on the golf course. 🙂

    I was curious as to the choice of Pres Hospital. Does “replacement” theology carry over to the surgical suite?

    Praying for a quick recovery…


  17. Margaret Hood Says:

    Shalom~ Praise God for your sucessful surgery. Our prayer are with you. May you have a complete recovery that the Lord will be given all glory and all praise. God Bless you and your ministry which has given life to so many.

  19. Dennis & Jeanie Carter Says:

    We’ve been praying for you from the beginning of this. Dennis had the same operation last October. Know that God loves you and wants you here serving Him. His arms will support you and restore you quickly and that is our prayer. And Sandra, God is your strength and you are in our prayers. Love, Dennis and Jeanie

  20. Keith Adams Says:

    Zola –

    I stand in faith and agreement with you for your total recovery and continued service to the Lord.
    I hope one day to meet you in Israel whether it be on one of your trips or during Yashua’s millennial reign.

    I’ve got to go as your show starts in a few minutes…

    I am praying for your recovery. You look very good. I also agree that this will be your last surgery, because we are going home soon. If I cannot make it with you on one of your tors, I will see you in the New Jerusalem. God Bless You, Love Peggy

  25. Judy McMahan Says:

    What a wonderful picture of you, Zola! You are definitely in the prayers of many, many Christians and most importantly, in the most capable hands of the Great Physician. I know the Lord has much for you to do yet, and know that your recovery will be nothing short of miraculous!! Thank you for the many years of “right on” teaching that you have given. The Lord has truly blessed my life through your ministry. Keep looking up, and we will all continue to “Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem!!” Our hearts and prayers are definitely with the Israeli people, as well. In Christian Love, Judy

  28. Kim Tweeddale Says:

    Dear Zola,
    Just left you a message in the above section, then I saw your picture here.

    As a new RN my husband and I moved to Dallas for three years while he went to SMU law school.

    I worked as a nurse on the very unit you are in now. But that was the summer of 1978. Seems ages ago. Continue to heal, and come back to us soon. Kim Twweeddale

  29. Gary Thomas Says:

    Dear Brother in Yeshua-

    I have been a faithful viewer of your program, for a long time. I often comment to my family and friends how you are a very valued member in the kingdom of HaShem. I feel that when you are called home, it will mean forboding for those who remain. So….you must stick around, and help us all just a little bit more, to understand the truth of the Holy One. I want to say that, WE LOVE YOU, VERY MUCH!! Thankyou for your service in Adonoi Y’shua, Moshiach!

  30. V.F. Says:

    Dear Zola,

    I did not know you were in the hospital.
    My love and prayers are with you.

    Shalom in Yeshua.

  31. Marcie Mathews Says:

    Dear Zola,
    May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.Romans 15:13
    Looking forward to your teachings.
    Shalom in Yeshua

  32. Jeff Lesniak Says:

    Praise the Lord! That you are well enough to continue your ministry, my mom and I were praying for you. God answered our prayers! You look so good in the picture! I am going to tell my mom a good news. Yes, you need alot of rests, we bless God for ISRAEL! WE love you! God bless you! Love, Jeff.

  33. Dave Wilson Says:

    What a privilege to pray for you! Your smile and twinkling eyes continue to say that our God is an awesome God! Shalom, my brother.

  34. Gloria Olmstead Says:

    Isn’t it ironic that you had your surgery in the “Presbyterian” Hospital. I am so glad to see everything is going well. You are wonderful and hope to see you up and at it really soon. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I love you brother. Your sister in Messiah. Gloria

    Dear zola,
    We thought you were having surgery in august, But then received your newsletter stating that you had already had the surgery. We just want to say we have been praying for you the moment we saw your letter. Our father went thru heart surgery, so we know what you and your family are going thru. We know the Lord is getting you stronger each day. Please don’t over do it! You’ll be in our prayers. I hope you received the letter I sent about reversing heart disease by Julian Whitaker. His website is

    Shalom, Yeshua is watching over you!

  41. Joyce Pastor Says:

    Dear Friends, I just finished watching your show, Wednesday, 8:30 on Insp. It was wonderful to see you both, and all the beautiful scenery and music, I have all of your music Zola, and I listen to it constantly, in my car, on my computer, when I walk, I’m surrounded by the most beautiful songs of Israel, Jesus, and more. It is such a privilige to have found you many years ago, and to have gone to Israel with you both in 2000. I can still see the beautiful places you took my husband and I to see. They are so vivid in my mind. I just had to write and tell you, and thank you again. Romans 8:37 says it all
