Counting The Blessings - December 2018 Appeal

Dec 4, 2018

"And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God."

— Deuteronomy 28:2 

 

Dear Friends,


The end of another year is almost here and we are counting the blessings we received this year in the midst of all our activities. Yet, as we write this letter, we still have a very active month ahead of us. Every year our staff is especially busy in December, reaching out to more people in need. We feel like we are in a race to help a greater number of people with our resources every year!

Vision for Israel was established in 1994 to bring comfort to those who mourn in Zion, to build up the broken-hearted and to love those who have been victims of terror. Since our inception, we have helped nearly one million people at the most difficult times in their lives.

 

“Speak comfort to Jerusalem, and cry out to her, that her warfare is ended..."
Isaiah 40:2a

This year we fulfilled one dream by moving into our new facility, the Millennium Center. For us, this is a blossoming miracle, with yet more to accomplish next year. 

Now that we are able to work more effectively, our service is continually expanding:

  • supplying financial gifts to the needy for their basic necessities;
  • feeding hundreds of children with special needs;
  • supporting families affected by terror attacks;
  • donating computers to the underprivileged;
  • caring for the elderly and holocaust survivors;
  • refurbishing homes for orphans and children in distress; and
  • providing medical and emergency supplies to save lives. 

This month alone we will reach new heights by giving out $235,000 to the poor.

 

“For the Lord your God has blessed you in all the work of your hand.” 

― Deuteronomy 2:7

 

We would ask you, our dear partners, to pray and consider whether you are able to commit to giving $20, $50, or $100 or any other amount on a monthly basis. This will help us ensure that those in need receive continual support.


May you take part in the blessings and thanks we receive every day from our recipients. May you be blessed in your coming in and in your going out. May you see the joy of the Lord, healing, and protection from any harm. The Lord bless you and keep you.

 

“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”

― Winston S. Churchill

 

We kindly remind you that gifts given by December 31, 2018 are tax deductible. Please remember Vision for Israel in your giving. Your generous gifts will make a difference in so many lives.
