Zion Oil & Gas Public Offering Update

“With faith there are no questions.
Without faith, there are no answers.”
Dear Zion Shareholder and/or Friend of Zion
We are extending the initial 90 day period for our public offering of $10 units. The extension gives us an additional 60 days (until October 11th, 2008) to sell the minimum subscriptions required of 325,000 units at $10 each (= $3,250,000). If we don’t reach the minimum by October 11th, then we will have to close our offering and return to every subscriber the subscription amounts that we will then have in the escrow account.
We have almost everything we need to drill our next two wells in Israel, but we need money to pay for importing the drilling rig from Turkey and the daily drilling costs. Since we began planning our next well, the US dollar has fallen 25% in value against international currencies, while associated oil industry costs have risen by 50% to 100%.
For example, when we drilled our first well, the Ma’anit #1, the contractor’s daily rate was $14,000.  For our next planned well, the Ma’anit-Rehoboth #2, the daily rate will be $28,500 per day (and that is considered to be a very good price in a market that can charge up to $40,000 for a similar drilling rig).
The current economic downturn has hurt many and prevented us from reaching the minimum in the initial 90 days of our public offering, but we sincerely believe that the Joseph Project will be a financial blessing to those who have the vision and faith to support it. (Ruth 2:12)
If you do not have money to invest then I pray that G-d will send it to you. But if you do have the funds, perhaps this is the intended use for them. (Esther 4:14)
Please consider what number of $10 units you want to take. The minimum is 100 units but we hope you will want to take more. 500 units at $10 each is $5,000 and, if we are successful, this may be the best money you ever invested… and you will be blessed… (Genesis 12:1-3)
Please give this message your serious consideration; Zion depends on your support and without your prayers and financial support, we may not be able complete our work in Israel. (Numbers 10:32)
