Tell us how you like to help

TelAviv

Light to the Darkest Corners of South Tel Aviv

Yeshua came to save the lost, those dying, hurting, those in despair who have lost everything. We have hope because of Him.

And when Jesus heard it, he said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”  – Mark 2:17

He showed us compassion, and we have the same opportunity to reach out and show others the love of Yeshua who has the power to save, deliver, and heal emotionally, physically, and spiritually. 

Together with other believers from various congregations in the Tel Aviv area, a small group of faithful members of our congregation head out to the most depraved, poorest, drug-ridden areas, which serve as a haven for drug dealers and prostitutes in south Tel Aviv and show love, distribute clothing and food, speak with these people and pray with them. Below is a report from one of our sisters in our congregation, who faithfully serves on the streets. 

“On Thursday it was extremely cold and rainy. The atmosphere on the streets was depressing and there was an eerie feeling in the air. Those on the streets were unusually nervous as they roamed the streets. Some tried to keep warm by heating charcoal while others sat there freezing as they had no way to keep warm. We handed out food, hot drinks, and warm clothes together with the love of the Lord.

As we walked through the streets we were grateful to have met Elah and speak with her. Please keep her in your prayers that God will deliver her from the bondage of drugs and that she come to know her Savior. We offered to help her move and are waiting for her to contact us so we can meet with her.

We also met Sharon who is part of the Black Hebrew Israelite community from Dimona. The Black Hebrew Israelites are African Americans who believe they are descendants of the ancient Israelis and incorporate aspects of Christianity and Judaism in their beliefs and practices. She agreed to let us pray for her in the name of Yeshua (Jesus). Sharon took some literature to learn more and grow. We saw how the Holy Spirit had touched her heart, but this is only the beginning. We are waiting for her to leave her life on the streets and leave behind a life of drugs. Please remember her in your prayers.

We had another meeting with Shaked, a very dear and charming woman, whom we have known for a long time. She is addicted to drugs and engaged in prostitution. We ask that you please remember her in your prayers. Pray for her by name. We believe in a God of miracles who can rescue Shaked and give her new life in Him.”

In the midst of the darkness on the streets of South Tel Aviv, those most destitute – these outcasts of society experience compassion, mercy, love, and grace that only come through Yeshua. Pray with us for these women that they too may experience the power of redemption in their lives and find true healing through Him.
