Cindy Marentette is following Yeshua in a Hebrew way! Here's her story:
 
When I was saved years ago my very first prayer was that God would show me truth.

With all that was being taught from all the denominations I wanted to be sure I was not being misled. It was not in a church that I was saved. I believe it was miraculous (it always is, but this is personal to me). 

I was in my home one night, after many nights of anguish and reading the Bible, I finally gave up and said, "God if you're real please show me how to be saved." I went to sleep expectant, knowing that I truly meant what I said.

The next morning, kind of early, I got a knock on my door. It was a couple wanting to share the gospel with me. I was floored. And, haha, they were floored too when I asked them politely to come in. They knew that I had not been receptive in the past. 
They said they felt led to stop at my house...and I knew they were! I could hardly wait for them to stop talking, because I knew when they started sharing God's love with me that there was no way I could refuse!!

I wish I could say that I had spent all those years since faithfully serving the Lord. But sadly, I fell into worldliness, broke Yeshua's heart, and wrecked my witness. I was diagnosed with cancer back in 2011 and was told that I only had a few months to a year at the most. If anything will shake you up it's being told that you have no hope and were going to die. Strangely (maybe not so strange) I did not fall apart, I felt that it was up to God whether I lived or died, not some white coat wearing doctor (however good they are). 
When I was alone, I prayed that if it was His will, that I'd like to live and make something better of my life, not that it would make up for what was lost, but that I would not be ashamed at His coming. I'm so thankful for His tough love- affliction that brings repentance, t'shuvah! I've now been cancer free for about three years.

I had been praying for a while that Yeshua would help me find others who believe the Hebrew way. After leaving my church of about 20 years, I have been alone (but not without Yeshua) at home with my computer and watching Shabbat services and Hebraic Roots Network. 

But before I left, I had found Holy Language and went through the free videos, that really sparked my interest, then afterwards I found the other sites. I confronted my pastor and it didn't go very well. It actually came out that they believed in replacement theology, you could call it RT Lite because you're told that they do not, but in their teachings it's obvious they do. Schizophrenic is the word! I love them and pray for them, please pray for them too please.

Elohim brought me along through a few different churches, many false teachings, and revealing things all along the way (I would have to change my thinking several times). He finally got it through my head that the faith is a Jewish faith and it's still the same. 

I know I'm finally on the right track. I never want to go back and I will keep going forward to find my purpose in Yeshua. Don't look back! Being a part of the Holy Language Tribe has really given me a way to serve Adonia and "follow Yeshua in a Hebrew way" as the motto goes.

As far as hobbies and such, I have a lot. I knit, crochet, spin yarn on a spinning wheel, teaching myself guitar, and taking a family herbalist course (due to a lack of natural options in the hospitals here). 

I used an herbal tea formula that has been passed down from Ojibwa Indians in Canada and it's working because I had to stop chemo and my doctor said keep on taking it. It should be no surprise that herbs can help our bodies...God created them for just that purpose. 

I can be contacted on facebook at cindy.marentette.

Izzy here. I thought you might find this free online dictionary of the Targums, Talmuds, and Midrash by Marcus Jastrow useful. See for yourself http://goo.gl/AVNcZd or by googling "Jastrow dictionary".

And if you have any resources you'd like to tell the Holy Language tribe about, I'd be happy to pass them on for you too. Just send us me a note here http://goo.gl/FcgOki or through the Contact page at holylanguage.com.

First and eternal language? Possibly.

A Hebrew inscription reading "Isaac bar Koma" on the wall of the Prophet Elijah's Cave. 
Can you trace the Hebrew letters יצחק בר כומה ?
The Haifa cave, sacred going back to the days of Baal, had been so neglected it even became a venue for bar mitzvahs. Only now is Israel starting to consider protecting it.

Chana (the one who just had a baby!) is following Yeshua in a Hebrew way! Here's her story.
Shalom! I'm Chana. I'm a wife to one and Ima to four little arrows that my husband and I are raising up for the Lord's glory! 

I've always known about God. I was raised in a Catholic home, attended a Catholic school from k-12, and even spent two years at a Catholic college! But it wasn't until after having my first child and realizing that I knew of God, but didn't have a relationship with Him, that I began to make some serious changes. 

I started looking for a Bible teaching church and ended up at a Fundamental Baptist church. It was there that I truly began to understand what Yeshua did for me, and I accepted Him as my Savior. 

While attending our small Baptist church I was reading and studying my Bible daily. I also read a bunch of blogs looking to learn from other believers who have been on this journey longer than I. One day I came across some ladies sharing about how the Torah is still relevant for our lives today. Of course this was foreign to me and as I sought to disprove them I began to see they were right! Shortly after that we began keeping Shabbat and the other Feasts. 

Connecting with the Lord in this way, created a burning desire to learn lashon hakodesh {the Holy Language} in order to dive deeper in our relationship with Yeshua. 

Some of the people we've connected with on our journey were also learning Hebrew. Everyone was learning from different places, but some friends recommended Holy Language Institute. Once we checked it out, we really liked being able to learn at our own pace, and how simple it was to follow along. Learning a new language is a challenge but the way it is presented really makes it simple to get the hang of it. 

We're really enjoying learning together as a family, and finding deeper meaning to the Scriptures through lashon hakodesh! 

If any ladies would like to connect you can find me on face book under Chana Brown. If any men would like to connect with my husband you can find him on face book under Hamani Brown. 
Many blessings to you all, 
Chana B

As the Jewish new year Rosh HaShanah approaches, let's learn about the 3 levels of forgiveness in Jewish tradition: selichah סְלִיחָה (pardon), mechilah מחילה (wiping away), and kapparah כַּפָּרָה (atonement).  
http://www.charismanews.com/opinion/standing-with-israel/51019-israel-prepares-for-its-high-holy-days-and-the-messiah-s-return
Dr. Sam Nadler, who has been in Messianic Jewish ministry for 40 years, says all of Israel needs to focus on the true forgiveness that comes only through the Messiah—Jesus.

George, a member of the Holy Language tribe, recently sent us this note for you:

I don't know if you have across across this website before: Blueletterbible.org? It contains the Masoretic text, analysis of the Hebrew text, and the Septuagint translation of it. When you click on the Strong's it gives you a lot of information on every single Hebrew word you read. There is a lot more to it, you need to familiarize yourself with the website first. Enjoy!"

See for yourself here http://goo.gl/soA5Pz or by Googling "blueletter bible".

Thank you George! And if you have any resources you'd like to tell the Holy Language tribe about, we'd be happy to pass them on for you. Just send us a note here http://goo.gl/FcgOki or through the Contact page at holylanguage.com
