The Anticipated Event!

Well, it happened. Rebekah’s long-awaited Bat-Mitvah took place last night and it was a lot of fun and very exciting. The Scripture reading for her was out of the Torah portion titled, "Lech Lecha." It basically means, "Go!" It was when God instructed Abram to leave his father’s house and land and go to where the Lord was going to lead him. Eventually, the Lord led him to Canaan and showed him the promise land where his descendents would live. So, he pitched his tent at Shechem and built an alter to the Lord.
Anyhow, this theme was perfect for Rebekah because we instructed her that it was now her responsibility to follow the Lord’s leading to accomplish his will for her. She was now to go; to trust God, and to walk with him faithfully and honorably.
Well, we hope these pictures say a thousand things. We are so proud of her, and she did great on her Hebrew. "Way to go, Rebekah! We love you."

Jennie and I would like to thank you all for your support and encouragement to her.
Shalom and Blessings,
Adrian and Jennifer Bernal and family

About adrianabernal

I committed my life to the Messiah, Yeshua in 1985. In 1987 I attended bible college in Dallas, TX., where I discovered my rich heritage as a Spanish Jew (Sephardic). Like most Sephardim, I was raised more Catholic than Jewish--I can thank the Spanish Inquisition for that--however, we were for the most part not a religious family. I eventually graduated and have continued on to obtain the Master of Theological Studies (M.T.S.) in Biblical Counseling and Jewish Studies, and a Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) in Jewish Studies with Columbia Evangelical Seminary, in Washington State. I have pastored both churches and Messianic congregations since 1993. Currently, I travel and speak at several churches, synagogues, and Messianic congregations in Wyoming, Idaho, Oregon, and Colorado. For the past 26 years I've engrossed myself in studies on Judaism, Messianic Judaism, and Christianity. In doing so, I have an extensive background in all three disciplines, which gives me a balanced perspective on the complete Bible, both the Tanakh (O.T) and the B'rit Chadashah (N.T.). I have been married for 25 years to my wife Jennifer, and I have three wonderful children: Nathan, Adam, and Rebekah. I am also a golf teaching professional and enjoy fellowship with my Jewish and Christian brothers and family. If you'd like me to come and speak at your place of worship, please do not hesitate to email me or call. Thank you.
