For many, the opportunity to travel to Israel on a tour is a dream that never seemed possible. It is an experience of a life time, to see the places where the people of the stories you read once lived. It’s as if the archeological rocks cry out with tales of long ago. It makes the bible come alive right before your eyes. Yet the people of Israel still exist, really as the living stones as proof of God’s great faithfulness.
These people, these living stones are as real as those stories of the past. Many of these people have needs, and if you travel to Israel you can be a partner in meeting those needs.
Here is how a tour group can turn this trip into a blessing for God’s chosen people:
The Airline allows each traveler to take 2 pieces of luggage (50 lbs each). Pack one with your personal clothes and things you need to take. Pack the second one with humanitarian and medical supplies. In Israel we’ll make arrangements to take the supplies to a humanitarian aid distribution place, where you’ll get your luggage emptied and returned.
Imagine if 50 people took the extra piece of luggage (50 lbs) filled with humanitarian aid supplies. That would come to 2500 lbs or over a tonne of medical and other humanitarian supplies.
On the linked file below is a list of the most urgent supplies needed in Israel at this time. Your group leader will make all the necessary arrangements with us in where to take it once in Israel. Contributions can be made up until October 1, 2001 to be taken with the RFTW Israel group.
As always, we at Hope for Israel believe that poverty doesn’t discriminate so neither do we. We give to all, be they Arab, Druze or Jewish people in need.
Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. Psalm 84:5
