Bringing Hope to the Hopeless

Friday, March 10, 2023

“But God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish.”

Psalm 9:18

As a young girl, Alina* faced many difficulties within her own home. Her father was a violent man and was in prison on criminal grounds. Because of this, she had to take on the responsibility of raising and caring for her younger siblings, as well as maintaining the household chores. When her father was released from prison, he was violent toward Alina and her mother.

Obviously, Alina wanted to escape from this unsafe household, so she got married at a young age. However, her marriage was full of tension due to her husband’s gambling problem. In protection of her two young sons Binyamin* and Gabriel*, Alina divorced her husband. Alina's ex-husband left many debts due to gambling and involvement in the gray market. As a result, Alina's bank account is limited and she is in the process of a writ of execution. The relationship between Alina’s sons and their father is violent as well.

Alina married another man and had two more children, but unfortunately, that marriage was also dysfunctional. Today, Alina is trying to raise all the children on her own, without significant support from the fathers of her children or her own family. This family has been treated at the welfare department since 2006 due to financial, marital, and parental difficulties.

Hearing of this family’s hopeless situation, VFI jumped in to help bring God’s hope through some financial aid (gift card), a food basket, and a warm blanket for the winter. Unfortunately, there are many people here in Israel that are suffering in hopeless situations. They are in desperate need of a helping hand, someone to pull them out of the pit, and to come alongside them to let them know they are not alone.

Our God does not forget the needy. And we rejoice in the fact that our God is a God of hope! Therefore, as children of God, it is our great honor and duty to bring God’s hope to the hopeless. We invite you to join us in bringing God’s hope to Alina and many others suffering from hopelessness here in Israel.

Bring hope to the hopeless today through a practical financial gift here on our website.

“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

Isaiah 40:31
