Message from the President, Richard A. Hellman:

Back in January, I shared with you that I was suspending my business activities long enough to take care of some health needs. Due to Unforeseen events, my recovery is ongoing.

Many of you have attempted to call me on my cell phone, text me and email me with no reply. So due to too many fast-moving developments to process, until further notice, any and all correspondence with me should be directed to me at the following address, where I have someone who reviews all my snail mail with me routinely:

Richard A. Hellman

P.O. Box 1161

Amherst, N.Y. 14226

 For all those who have been praying for me, a Big Thank you to you, as your prayers have been answered. I am ALIVE! I am a Blessed Man! In between all the medical I have been exercising My Authority As A Believer! Growing My Faith! I have been praising the Lord with hands lifted up! I have been meditating and reciting Isaiah 53! God’s Word does Not return void!

God has blessed me in my dream life with many wonderful, happy and very funny dreams!

God is Great and greatly to be Praised!

An important and final note:

Over the next days and weeks, steps will be taken to close both MERCL and CIPAC. This way I am free to be single minded about my recovery. We share together many stellar memories from walking the corridors of power in our nation’s capital to bringing the vision to the various state capitals. Our research travels to Israel were profound, and the list goes on and on!

My Love to All of You, Richard

MERCL is the research arm of the only Christian-based lobby in support of US-Israel relations.  From our Washington office, a small team of dedicated professionals help educate US lawmakers and their constituents. This is done through rigorous research to underpin CIPAC’s lobbying campaigns.  Our national network of volunteers and supporters use the in-depth analysis from MERCL to effectively advocate for Israel to their elected representatives and local media.
