The Lord inhabits the Praises of His People – Musical Instruments Fundraiser

Our congregation in Ashdod is a testimony to the great things that God can achieve in one’s life, despite being in constant danger and under severe threat from a powerful enemy. Beit Hallel Ashkelon is a healthy and growing congregation, which has been flourishing despite coming under frequent and intense missile attacks from Gaza during the war.

And it’s all thanks to the grace and protection of God!

A key aspect of the growth that we’ve seen at our Ashdod congregation, is the passionate praise and worship culture that God has cultivated there. Even now during this war, people flock to the meetings and services, to come before the throne of God, and to lift His name up with our voices and musical instruments.

In the Old Testament we read of how when the armies of Edom came up against Israel, Jehoshaphat commanded the armies of Israel to move out against them, and at the head of the army he appointed worshippers to praise the Lord. What happened then? The enemies of Israel were defeated!

After consulting the people, Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the LORD and to praise him for the splendour of his holiness as they went out at the head of the army, saying: “Give thanks to the LORD, for his love endures forever.” As they began to sing and praise, the LORD set ambushes against the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir who were invading Judah, and they were defeated.

2 Chronicles 20:21-22

At this time our Ashkelon congregation is in desperate need of new musical instruments, specifically a professional keyboard and a high-quality stage monitor speaker. These are simply electronic devices, but they are important tools in the hands of our worshippers and audio technicians. We want to offer our best during worship, and having the right equipment just makes that so much more doable.

Would you be willing to sow into the worship ministry of our young Ashkelon congregation? The total of the “Kurzweil Keyboard PC4 SE” and the stage monitor speaker “Alto TX 310” come to ₪ 8,748 Shekels (around $ 2,372.49 USD).

Any gift towards this amount will make a difference and would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you and God bless!
