Ariel Canada: Via Czech Republic
Note: In its nascent stage, Ariel Czech Republic is being organized by Eliška Nováková and falls under the direction and authority of Ariel Canada.
For several years, the Lord has led me (Eliška) in what He would like me to do to serve Him the best. Let me map out for you what it is:
- Ariel Ministries is one of the best ministries to serve the Czech people. The situation of the Czech Republic among the countries of the European Union is unique because the government is politically the strongest supporter of Israel and often stands up against the anti-Israel position of the EU agenda. Recent examples of this stance include the following:
- Czech veto against labeling Israeli products in 2015
- Czech veto against UNESCO resolution regarding the Wailing Wall in 2016
My aim is to translate key Ariel materials into Czech. How quickly I can accomplish this depends on financial support. My current plan is to work from Prague, Czech Republic, and travel to conferences as the Lord leads. I want to reach out to seminaries to gain relationships with students whom the Lord may be preparing for me to train as translators.
About Eliška Nováková
Born in 1981 into an atheistic family, it was only after my difficult teenage years that I believed that Messiah Yeshua died for me, was buried, and resurrected. To this day, I am the only one of my living family to have come to saving faith. I studied linguistics, American and Czech history and literature, and pedagogy at Charles University in Prague. I earned my MA in 2012.
That same year, I went to see Arnold Fruchtenbaum teach “The Life of the Messiah” in Poland. In 2015, I had the great pleasure to co-organize Arnold’s first tour to Prague and to translate while he taught the same course to my people. Three years later, I joined Ariel Ministries in order to translate its material on a larger scale.
My “tent-making” job used to be that of a high school teacher. Today, I teach English and Czech as a freelancer to individual people. I also organize educational tours to Auschwitz and Theresienstadt so that people may never forget what happened during the Shoah. In my church, I teach the Bible to Sunday School teenagers.
