Our Rosh Hashanah project to bless the Jewish people of Nof Hagalil was truly a praise offering to God! The fact that God is using the Arab people to bless the Jewish people of Israel is a sign that this nation is undergoing a shift and a spiritual transformation.
It also goes against everything that the world media is trying to sell us, that Jews and Arabs have no common ground and that they simply cannot co-exist. The fact is however that Jesus is on the move in Israel, and that through Him Jews and Arabs are getting saved, being reconciled, and revival is in the making. Hallelujah!
Through the generosity of our partners from all over the world, we were able to bless more than 150 Jewish families from Nof Hagalil with special Rosh Hashanah food boxes containing nutritious and delicious food items, along with special holiday ingredients.
Among these dear ones were Holocaust Survivors, single mothers, and many living under the poverty line of Israel. The smiles and tears said it all. They were shocked and so thankful to see Arab Christians bless them with much-needed aid, and above all, with the love of Jesus.
In addition to the food boxes, we were also able to present a special blessing to the ladies in honor of Rosh Hashanah! We gave out more than 100 pairs of brand-new and stylish women’s shoes. The ladies rejoiced and we praised God that He knows what we need and how to get it to us!
People would continually ask us why we were doing what we’re doing, and then we would shared our hearts with them. We would explain that it was first and foremost because of the love of Jesus and that He had commanded us to do good in His name.
He has called us to comfort and bless the Jewish people, and to be a light unto them, so that they might come to know God and enter their calling. In Isaiah 40:1 we read “Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.” God is using the Arab believers in Israel to bring the sons and daughters of Abraham back into the House of God!
Thank you to all of our friends and partners who supported this project. We love and appreciate you!
