Beth Yeshua Australia is shepherded by Steve "Arnie" Arnold and his wife Cindy Arnold. This fledgling fellowship was originally founded in 2011 on the Gold Coast of Queensland, but God had other plans. It wasn't long before God called them back to Perth to start a Messianic fellowship. For several years they led a small home-based group of Believers, but God had other plans.
In late November of 2017, just before Chanukah, Beth Yeshua Australia was blessed with a new home for its weekly Shabbat services - in the Jewish Community Centre in Yokine, Western Australia. This small but dedicated group is committed to touching hearts, and changing lives.

In May/Jun 2017, Beth Yeshua International (BYI) in Macon, Georgia, was blessed to welcome three of its four congregational leaders. This video is a compilation of past visits, and their recent joint visit.
To paraphrase Arnie from the I am the Nations video (at about the 17:54 minute mark)
",,, That's all I wanted to do. We're small in Australia, but we're trying and we're sharing. Like Greg said, there's a need there for a legitimate Messianic congregation, and that's what I want to take back and build; to just take a little piece of this [of Beth Yeshua- Macon] and to build on it. It is such a privilege and an honour. And, it's so needed!"(Please note: Mobile connections and slower internet connections may experience a delay in the video loading.

I planted the seed, and Apollos watered it, but it was God who made it grow. So neither the planter nor the waterer is anything, only God who makes things grow — planter and waterer are the same.
Pulaski State Prison, Hawkinsville, GA
In 2009, God called me (Suzy Varner), to minister at Pulaski State Prison. I began as part of the ministry team to Disciplemakers, a large, well-established women’s Bible study. In less than a year, God called out two Messianic inmates, Rachel and TIP.
The three of us prayed fervently for six weeks that The Father would raise up a Messianic congregation at Pulaski, despite thinking that the chances were slim since our group was so small. Miraculously, without anyone saying a word to the Chaplain, she announced to me that we were going to begin a Messianic congregation at Pulaski. Our joy overflowed as we realized that God was birthing something amazing.
Rachel, TIP and I began meeting weekly in September 2010, and we spent about nine months in deep discipleship. I sensed that God wanted to strongly equip Rachel and TIP to minister and reach out to the inmates and staff at Pulaski. These two ladies began taking Rabbi’s messages to everyone who will listen in the prison, and continue to do so today.
As a result of the Ruach’s wooing, and Rachel and TIP’s efforts, 14 inmates joined us. Over the years of meeting every week, news of Rabbi Greg’s powerful teaching of God’s Word has spread and we are maxed out with women on the waiting list, waiting sometimes for years before they can get in. I see letters frequently from women begging to be included. There is an air of joyful expectancy when we meet, and these women are so grateful to be learning Truth and putting it into practice.
We currently have a team of 6 women who visit them and bring them God’s love and encouragement every week. It is so heartwarming to us to see the transformation God is making in their lives, raising them up to be God’s ambassadors to carry his Light into the darkness of the prison. They are God’s special treasures who are hungry and thirsty for a face-to-face relationship with their ABBA, and we would go to the ends of the earth to help them discover that their Father God adores them.
Shalom and blessings!
