ICEJ International


By Sally Maddatu, ICEJ Representative - Philippines

On 8 June 2017, the ICEJ Philippines branch celebrated the Jerusalem Jubilee with other Christian Churches and organisations, commemorating the 50 years since the reunification of Jerusalem, the city of our God. Proclaiming this prophetic event moves us in anticipation towards the day of the Lord’s coming. The celebration in the Philippines was one of great joy and excitement. The event was enriched by guest speakers, Ambassador of Israel to the Philippines, His Excellency Effi Ben Matityahu, and Itamar Gero, the President of the Israeli Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines.


Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, visits Liberia for the ECOWAS Summit

By Apostle J. Aaron Wright, Snr

The 51st Ordinary Summit of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) was attended by 15 West African States and the Prime minister of Israel. This event is remarkable for two reasons: it was the first Economic Summit to be held in Liberia and the first to be guested by a non-African leader.

The two-day Summit began on Saturday, 4 June 2017, in Harbel, Margibi County, Liberia. All ECOWAS delegates were present with the exception of the king of Morocco who cancelled his trip due to tensions between Israel and his country.

Prime Minister Netanyahu was nonetheless welcomed and received by Liberian president and outgoing chairperson, Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem (ICEJ) Liberia’s secretary and Margibi county membership. Netanyahu later spoke to the ECOWAS delegates at the summit on the theme: ISRAEL IS COMING BACK TO AFRICA.

ICEJ-Liberia headed by Apostle J. Aaron Wright Snr welcomed the prime minister with a host of ICEJ churches from all over the County. Due to the intense security measures, a grand march showing welcoming banners was conducted through the main street, followed by an indoor programme in honour of the prime minister of Israel with more than five hundred in attendance. The programme was mainly focused on the development of the churches in Liberia and its relationship with Israel. Representative Apostle J. Aaron Wright was the keynote speaker focusing on this theme: LIBERIA-ISRAELI RELATIONSHIP PAST AND PRESENT. Overall, the programme was a huge success!
