Life-Saving Security Equipment for Soldiers Protecting Israel’s Borders

Our country is hurting and in pain. Intense battles continue to rage across Gaza between the IDF and Hamas terrorists. With military machinery and precision, IDF troops continue to attack key targets, uncover tunnel systems running between buildings, schools, clinics, and mosques, and uncover hidden weapons in maternity wards. At the same time, we are seeing the enemy weaken and terrorists surrender.

However, this war does not come without a price. Just last weekend we received word that three of those taken captive were accidentally killed by IDF fire. We are heartbroken. Our nation is in tears. We eagerly hoped and prayed for their homecoming, and it was difficult to grasp. Daily, we receive reports of soldiers who’ve lost their lives protecting the State of Israel while dozens more have been wounded. Unfortunately, for us as a body, this also means those from our own community. 

More than a thousand Messianic-believing soldiers are serving on reserve and active duty throughout the country, many are fathers of young children, while others are barely 18, 19, and 20 years old. As of early this week, we received word that 5 Messianic young men have been seriously wounded in Gaza, and one who went home to be with the Lord. These are young men who attend youth, young adult, and soldier conferences together with our young people.

We ask that you stand with us in prayer during this crucial time for the complete healing of their bodies and comfort for the family and congregation of the soldier who gave his life for the country he loved. Join us in pouring out our hearts before the throne of mercy. We know that our God can do all things. May He perform a great miracle and it be a testimony before doctors of the power of prayer and of our God. 

Pray also for our leaders as they navigate tactical strategies to defeat Hamas, the protection of our soldiers and civilians living under the threat of attack, that the Lord would lead the IDF to those in captivity, and that they will return safely home to their families. Most importantly, pray that through all this tragedy, our nation would return to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and come to follow Yeshua as Savior.  

We would like to thank everyone who has been a faithful partner with us in our war relief efforts among Israeli soldiers. When the war began in Israel, thousands of reservists throughout the country were suddenly called up to serve, heading to their bases without basic essentials and necessary security equipment, including helmets and bulletproof vests. Thanks to your generous support, our congregation was able to provide those serving on the first and second lines of defense life-saving protective gear they need to continue defending our borders. It opens up wonderful opportunities to share with them about the love and hope of Yeshua. If the Lord lays on your heart to join us in providing life-saving security equipment for those protecting Israel, you can visit our donate page and make a lasting difference today.
