Shalom Friends,

Mega Blessings and Shalom to you in this late hour!

Just a few days ago I had the privilege to represent the Nation of Israel in the long distance race of Ironman Arizona 2012 in Tempe, AZ.  As soon as I landed in the USA the terror rocket attack on the South of Israel intensified and I was in a strait to head immediately back home.  However, the Holy Spirit told me to stay and race as He was going to do something very special.   The race turned out to be a crazy ordeal of survival, as I had mysterious nutrition/stomach problems beginning the first hour and then not disappearing until a few hours after crossing the finish line.   The exciting part of this very difficult day finally did not unfold until the last 100 yards in the finish chute area where thousands of people erupted in cheers and applause as they saw me hold the Israeli flag high! It was so encouraging to see so many strangers shout about Israel when even one of the other Israeli pro athletes at the pre race start was afraid that if the Israeli flag was lifted persecution and ridicule may happen. Well it never did and we have put together a small clip of that wonderful experience!

Thank you for your support and have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday weekend!

In His service for your faith,

Scott Holtz

Thanking Him that Prez Obama & Hillary Clinton have given verbal assent to Israel defending herself!! Congrats on the Ariz. Ironman race finish even tho’ u felt ill. Glad for ur boldness in holding Israeli flag up. Wonderful to hear the response of crowd! Blessings, mercies, and prayers r sent ur way! Shalom!

  4. Scott,
    We live near Tempe and are very sorry we did not know you were here. Would have been there to see you cross that finish line!

    We heard you speak 2 or 3 times at Riverwalk Fellowship in Haltom City, TX a few years ago.

    Love you and God bless you.
