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 regularly with nourishing food baskets, good-quality clothing, furniture, and much-needed appliances, thanks to the grace of our Lord and the financial support of our friends from all across the world.
We are living in a time where we are seeing the prophetic words from Jeremiah 16:14-16, which speak 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, providing comfort and care to these new immigrants and refugees making “aliyah” from the northern countries.
Our congregation is currently experiencing an average of 30 new Jewish immigrant families per week who come to us for help with clothing. These struggling families arrive in Israel with only a few suitcases holding everything they own. They need all the help they can get. We give them the opportunity to “shop” at our clothing distribution center and pick out whatever items of clothing catch their eye, and it’s all absolutely free!
The gratitude they feel cannot be expressed in words alone. They are amazed that “Christians” care so much about them and are willing to help them in their desperate times. We see their faith becoming restored as they see that God still cares and provides for them through the unlikely hands of a “Christian.”
Our clothing distribution center is currently housed in our new building but will need to be relocated soon. Our facility is currently undergoing renovations after finally receiving the required permits to begin operation as a church. We are preparing our new sanctuary for worship and larger services, as well as a place for meetings and conferences.
This is good news because it means growth and multiplication! Unfortunately, it means we need to find a new storage and distribution facility to continue to help many more immigrant families with much-needed new clothing.
You can become part of the fulfillment of Bible prophecy in welcoming and providing for the Jewish people returning to Israel. Please consider supporting us monthly to help us rent this new clothing distribution center. Any size seed will help and produce a harvest.
We appreciate your help and love so much. Thank you and Shalom!
