Come, and let us return to the LORD; For He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up.

We are the McDowell’s. Our family has come to Israel to be a blessing and a light to the Jewish people.
It all began when I (Zackary McDowell) was fourteen years old and I had a vision where God told me that he was going to send me to Israel. It was there that I would meet my wife and we would go on an adventure with Him as we spent our lives in service to Him there.
Fourteen years later I met my beautiful wife Esther while I was in Israel on a tourist visa. We got married about three months later. About a year after our wedding we had our firstborn son, Shmuel Moshe McDowell. He is a joy and gift from God and we could not ask for more.

We send out a monthly newsletter to keep people up to date with what is going on here in the Land of Israel and how we are seeing God touch the lives of people here on a daily basis. We would love for you to join us in prayer for the people we are ministering to and to join our mailing list.
May the veil be lifted!
We are all familiar with what Yeshua said about people who seek after Him; they will find Him. That is why we choose to center our daily lives around the question above. It causes us to look and listen for Him and we find that it makes all of the difference.
We see God daily at work through the relationships Esther has with the people in the market place where she goes to buy our groceries. They love to see Shmuel and it has given us a chance to begin to minister to each of them. We also have a weekly Bible study that we host at our apartment for people in our neighborhood. It is such a blessing to see the Lord’s hand at work.
