A Lifesaving Donation

"But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high."

Psalm 3:3

Dear Friends,

This January, Barry and I had the privilege of visiting the Eshkol region to support its emergency response teams. This visit came in the wake of the tragic events of October 7th, and I feel a deep connection to these teams, who faced unimaginable hardship yet persisted, guarding their communities with remarkable courage.

The tragic day took nine of these dedicated security personnel from us, leaving an indelible scar on the Eshkol region. However, their successors continue their legacy, standing as beacons of resilience to protect the lives of those in the settlements. It is thanks to your unwavering support and generosity that Vision for Israel was able to provide a donation of equipment valued at NIS 500,000, including defibrillators, radios, and scanning lights for 32 squads.

The event in Eshkol was moving, filled with both sorrow and resolve. As we spoke with the security officers and local leaders, their words resonated with a heavy sense of grief. The massacre of October 7th left a lasting scar, but their spirits are not broken. Their determination to safeguard their communities remains strong, fueled by love for their homes and families.

I felt compelled to share a message of faith and unity, reminding them of the support from Christians worldwide. I said, "We have many friends around the world who love us and know that the nation of Israel is alive, they are many and dear, Christians who love Israel, thanks to whom we can give you the donations today. They would come fight for us here if they could, and they mean what they say."

I was also reminded of Barry’s dedication over the past two and a half years, installing shelters across the South, including 155 shelters around the Gaza Envelope. This project, fueled by your donations, has saved hundreds of lives, shielding families from rocket fire and other attacks.

Your generosity makes a profound difference, supporting not only emergency response teams but the entire Eshkol region. Together, we are rebuilding and restoring the communities, offering hope and resilience in the face of adversity.

As we left, I felt a renewed sense of hope. The bravery and dedication of the security teams, the support of our partners and donors, and the love of our global community strengthen us all. Together, we will continue to restore and protect the Eshkol region.

Thank you for being a part of this journey and for your steadfast support. Donate Now

"The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me."

Psalm 28:7

With love and blessings,
