Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west. I will say to the north ‘Give them up! ‘ and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back. ‘ Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth.
Despite the war raging in Israel against Hamas, prophecy is unfolding before our very eyes as the “aliyah”, the prophetic homecoming of the Jews, is taking place. More and more Jews from all around the world are making aliyah due to the global rise of anti-semitism.
Despite the fact that Israel is fighting a war on many fronts and that Israelis are constantly in danger of terrorist attacks, Jews still believe that Israel is the ancient homeland that God has prepared for them, and the only place they’re safe.
With this “exodus” of Jewish people happening from the east, west, north, and south, as we read in Isaiah 43:6, we find ourselves in a unique position to bless these dear ones as they come home and help them put down roots by providing for their day-to-day practical needs. Our cities of Ashdod and Ashkelon are seeing multitudes of new Jewish immigrants every month, and many of them have found practical help from Beit Hallel in the form of food baskets, clothing, furniture, toiletries, and much more. All through the help of our partners like you.
However, not only are these precious “olim chadashim” (new Jewish immigrants) in need of humanitarian aid but thousands of Israeli families have also been evacuated from the northern and southern borders due to constant missile attacks from Gaza and Lebanon. Many of these dear families, especially from the Jewish Ethiopian communities in the south, have been relocated to Ashdod until it’s safe to return to their homes again. We as the church need to mobilize, and be an answer to their prayers in these times. God calls us unto action, and we obey, trusting that He will open the right doors and send the right people to stand alongside us.
Next week we will be conducting two large humanitarian outreaches to aid these precious people. Firstly we will be providing care hampers consisting of an electric heater and a winter bed set to 200 poor families of new Jewish immigrants, mainly from Ukraine and Russia. These combination care hampers of heaters and bedding will cost us $50 per family. We will also be hosting 120 Ethiopian Jews who have been evacuated from Israel’s southern kibbutz communities, to bless each and every one of them with grocery vouchers to the value of $30, to help their households put food on the table for a good while.
Help us ignite hope in their hearts today.
Please consider standing with us, as we reach out to help them, during these challenging times in Israel. Something as ordinary as a heater, winter bedding, or a grocery voucher can make a big difference, and it also allows us to be vessels of God’s love and hope as we bless the prophetic return of the Jewish people to Israel.
Thank you and God bless!
