Babette Biddlecombe Interview

A few weeks ago I had a great chat with Jonathan Biddlecombe, only to find out that his wife, Babette has an equally fascinating testimony!   I am very happy to share her story here.

Rev./Dr. Babette C. DuPlessis-Biddlecombe’s greatest desire is to see the name of the Lord lifted up, His Kingdom extended on this earth and His righteousness, truth and justice established. Seeing people healed, delivered, set free, and discipled for their calling is very important to her.

Dr. Babette grew up in South Africa where she preached and assisted in missions. As a teen-ager she wrestled with her faith in Jesus/Yeshua; trying to understand her Jewish roots and how God could use her as a woman. After graduation, she studied art, psychology and biblical studies and worked as a graphic designer for many years while being involved in social issues. She married Jonathan in 1986 in a Messianic Congregation and open her own Art studio once their first child was born. She also served in ministry in various capacities: administrative, preaching, teaching life skills to many who were oppressed by the apartheid system, designing as well as being the assistant editor of a Christian newspaper. She coordinated the opening and management of an orphanage for street children and witnessed many miracles along the way.

At the age of 36, Dr. Babette, her husband and two children moved to Dallas, Texas after an offer of a tuition scholarship at Christ for the Nations. There she completed her three-year practical theology and pastoral studies. She was also licensed and ordained, interned in Chaplaincy at the Dallas men’s prisons and at a private mental institution. After graduation, her family moved to Tulsa, OK to intern with the Osborn’s ministry and began the immigration process while continuing their education. They met Bishop LaDonna Osborn and Pastor Chyanna Mull-Anthony in their first year of studies, and the impact these women of God had on her life as a woman in ministry would be everlasting.

Dr. Babette founded Eagles Glide International Ministries in 2004 and started a Messianic Congregation, Beth Shalom, with her husband Jonathan. They also opened a Bible college, distribute Bibles and Biblical books, and are working on the opening of a Safehouse for abused women and children. They both manage their own graphic design and web development, Smart Art, and are working on a health food product that Whole Foods Market is interested in retailing. Her husband is working on his PhD in Hebraic studies, and their children are both studying and serving the Lord. Pastor Babette also takes time out to paint whenever she can.

Dr. Babette has a B.A. in Practical Theology, as well as a M.TH and her PhD is in Religious Education. Her main research is in biblical equality and understanding the Biblical Hebraic Roots of our faith.

Rick Heller Interview

 It was fun chatting with Rick Heller today.  In his own words:


I am a devoted follower and lover of Yeshua (Jesus), my Messiah. I am a husband, a father, a grandfather and even a great-grandfather by marriage. I have several degrees, including a bachelor’s in psychology and a master’s in human resources. I have had many careers,  including: the Navy Nuclear Field, carpentry, computer instructor, and nursing in various capacities.

I still wonder what I want to be when I grow up. Not really. I have had many titles, but my favorite one was given to me by a friend, whose anointing I’ve always admired. She once said to me that she saw me as a friend of God.  I don’t deserve such a title, but it resonates in my heart. I can only hope.

Sherry, my wife, and I have made our home in Florida for the last eleven years.  We have a beautiful (if somewhat headstrong) dog, a Whoodle, named Maxi. He brings a lot of love, comfort and challenges into our home.

Like everyone else, we have our ups and downs and times when life goes sideways. But we love the Lord. He is the foundation of our life and marriage. Life can be hard enough with Him. We don’t ever want to be without him.

I am a sinner saved by grace, the unmerited favor of God, which I could never earn or deserve. It is in Yeshua, Jesus, my Lord and Savior, that I place my trust. When you read these stories, I hope you can catch a glimpse of His love for you.

Itzhak Shapira-2

Today's pre-recorded program features an interview with Rabbi Itzhak Shapira.   It's been awhile since he was on the show.   Here is a little background:

Tzahi (Itzhak) Shapira was born and raised in a traditional Sephardic Jewish home in Israel. After years of studying Rabbinic Jewish texts, he found the Messiah within the Hebrew writings. Far from a study of kosher dietary laws, The Return of the Kosher Pig is an unprecedented journey toward the true identity of the Divine Messiah - the one previously considered "unkosher" and "unacceptable" by Jewish people. This encyclopedic volume will surprise and challenge you with the compelling words of Jewish sages and rabbis over the last 2,000 years, many in English for the first time. Rabbi Shapira serves as the as the founding rabbi of Ahavat Ammi, an international Jewish organization that is focused on reconciliation between Jews and Yeshua.


His newest book is The Besorah according to Covid-19.   Find more info at www.goodnewscovi19.net.
