Comfort My People
Gods call to care for Israel, and bless those who do.
Help us share Jesus through word and action!
Israel has survived as a people and as a nation against all odds. The nation has suffered unprovoked wars, genocide, slavery and every physical and rhetorical attack imaginable. Even today they are under attack physically, spiritually and politically. God has called us to stand with them. We are instructed in Isaiah 40:1 to comfort God's people and in Psalm 122:6-7 to "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: May they prosper who love you! Peace be within your walls and security within your towers!"
250 people lost their homes, their belongings, and generations of irreplaceable heirlooms in minutes as their community was consumed by fire. Forced to evacuate immediately, all that survived was the little they could carry in their hands. We committed to help rebuild, replant and restore the Jewish community of Moshav Mevo Modi’im.
Eshkol Trauma Center
Thousands of missiles a year, sometimes hundreds per day, are fired into Israel. The Eshkol Regional Council lies in southern Israel, bordering the infamous Gaza strip. When the sirens sound, whether you’re a 97-year-old Holocaust survivor, or a 3-month-old infant, you have 15 seconds to make it into a bomb shelter before an explosion.
Just 5 years ago there were roughly 240,000 Holocaust survivors alive in Israel. Today that number has dwindled to 190,000—there’s no time to waste. Many of these men and women who faced the most horrific event in history are now living out their final days in poverty and isolation. But we can help secure food, housing, and even daily visits for them.
How can we help?
God called us in Isaiah 40:1 to bring comfort to Israel. The scripture in Isaiah goes on to command that we "speak tenderly to Jerusalem." We want to bring comfort in the most practical ways we can—by giving them shelter, food, protection and providing essential needs to make sure they know they are not alone.

For Michal Uziyahu and her family, Israel is home. It's more than the place where their house is; it’s where they belong. For them, knowing they have friends on this side of the ocean brings peace and strength to keep going.View Posts
Shalom Schwartz lost every earthly belonging when his community was ravished by fire. It was a somber scene to tour the village in ashes and see his home of 40 years with very little left, but his spirit of courage and victory is one we can all learn from. Shalom said, “We never gave up on God, and God never gave up on us.”
