A Proverbs 22:9 Response
Be the answer to your prayers...
Join us in Faith and pray for Jerusalem, combining it with Works as we help feed the most needy among them. Together, we'll affect Change with the goal of feeding 1,000 families during the High Holy days. Through this initiative, all citizens of Israel - Jews and Arabs alike - who are suffering in poverty, can receive assistance and food.
- Over 1,651,300 Israeli citizens (Jew & Arab) live below the poverty line."
- Many are children who do not regularly have even 1 hot meal a day.
- Many are elderly holocaust survivors who can't afford basic groceries, or are too ill to take care of themselves.
- New olim (immigrants) come to make aliyah (become citizens of Israel) with almost no money; some escaping extreme persecution and poverty with only the clothes on their backs.
The ultimate solution for peace in this region is God's peace plan. Faith + Works = Change is the next step to this, through feeding the hungry in the name and love of Jesus.
