It has been such a blessing to provide for the needs of multitudes of Ukrainian and Russian Jewish families that have been immigrating to Israel over the past year. We have made a massive impact on their lives by providing them with nourishing food baskets, good-quality clothing, beautiful furniture, and handy appliances on a regular basis, thanks to the grace of our Lord and the financial support of our friends from all across the world.
What’s happening here is that we’re seeing the prophetic words from Jeremiah 16:14-16, which speaks about the Jewish “homecoming” or “Aliyah,” playing out before our very eyes.
However, the days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when it will no longer be said, ‘As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the Israelites up out of Egypt,’ but it will be said, ‘As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the Israelites up out of the land of the north and out of all the countries where he had banished them.’ For I will restore them to the land I gave their ancestors. “But now I will send for many fishermen,” declares the Lord, “and they will catch them.
The Lord has strategically positioned Beit Hallel Congregation to serve as His hands and feet in Ashdod and to provide comfort and care to these dear ones making “aliyah” from the northern countries.
On a weekly basis, we provide hampers of new clothing to an average of 30 new Jewish immigrant families. They get to peruse our clothing distribution centre, and pick out whatever items of clothing catches their eye, and it’s all absolutely free! Seeing that these precious families come to Israel with a few suitcases, they absolutely need all the help they can get.
Now with our clothing distribution centre being absorbed into our new building to serve as our new congregational meeting place, we will have to find a new storage facility from which to keep the momentum going and help many more immigrant families with high-quality, new clothing.
This is good news because it means growth and multiplication! We are preparing our new sanctuary for larger church services, and at the same time, looking to secure a new clothing distribution centre. Praise the Lord!
I would like to ask you to become part of the fulfilment of Bible prophecy, in welcoming and providing for the Jewish people returning to Israel. Would you prayerfully consider standing with us on a monthly basis in order to rent a new clothing distribution centre? Any size seed will help and produce a harvest.
We appreciate your help and love so much. Thank you and Shalom!
Beit Hallel is a Messianic Jewish congregation in Ashdod, led by pastor Israel Pochtar, serving holocaust survivors and the poor and needy locally and throughout the nation of Israel, while building up the body of Messiah in the promised land of Israel.
