Beer-Sheva14 is a growing city with increasing job opportunities and beautiful new neighborhoods, connected to the rest of the country via trains, highways, buses and planes. Beer-Sheva is rapidly becoming the metropolis of the Negev, with its growing university and medical facilities, business parks and growing chemical and high-tech industry attracting new immigrants and people from all across the country.
An apartment rent-free for 1 year will help a Messianic Jewish family get settled successfully in Beer-Sheva. To make this possible we have the following needs:
For the monthly payment of $ 450: We need 22 written pledges of $ 20 monthly for one year. These pledges are tax deductible within the United States. The money will go into a specified fund with the rent being paid to the ministry’s VISA. Payment will be made here in Israel. It is wiser to pay in dollars because of the high exchange rate.
Furnishing the apartment: New immigrants first arrive without their belongings as their shipments are stored at the port of entry. They either live first in absorption centers, or rent fully furnished apartments until they can buy their own place and get their shipment of belongings out of port. It is therefore necessary to furnish the apartment completely: major appliances, kitchenware and linen, telephone, TV and a computer for learning and work purposes.
Helping with the first bills: The first six months are spent learning Hebrew in an intensive “Ulpan” (language center) and filling out forms: to register the family as new immigrants, to enroll the children in school, to get unemployment benefits, etc. Bureaucracy in Israel is a trial, especially for new immigrants.
The next few months are spent job hunting. It generally takes 1 year - or more - to settle down with some measure of success. For example, it took us from April ’87 till the beginning of January ’88 until my husband got his job harvesting the Dead Sea. It took writing over 50 job applications and several job interviews in various towns before he found employment (where he is still is today).
Hence, generous support from churches, Bible study groups, various organizations and ministries, and from individuals is needed. Perhaps someone knows how to make application for established special trust funds for the above mentioned purposes? Helping your Jewish brethren return to the Land of Israel and succeed in building a new life is not only a wonderful way of fulfilling prophecy, but also a holy duty according to G-d’s Word. Moreover you would be a partner in helping to spread the Good News effectively for who knows better how to witness to a Jew than a Jew? Jews were the first and will also be the last to proclaim the Gospel.
Once my husband and I are established in our new home, we can begin helping the first Messianic family. My prophetic friends Yoseph & Shira with their two children are planning on making Aliya next year. However, the prospects look extremely dim as they lack the necessary finances. The same is true for our daughter and her four children. Yet G-d wants to lead them out and bring them home to Israel.
His Word states that the Gentile brethren should assist graciously and cheerfully. May G-d touch your hearts with His compassion!
