A Tree Planted in Israel
“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise.” – Proverbs 11:30
This beautiful sculpture hangs in the entrance of our Moishe Rosen Center (MRC) in Tel Aviv. It represents a group* of partners in ministry whose help made the purchase and renovations of the MRC possible. Their gifts will help people in Israel know true righteousness and peace through Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) for years to come.
Our thanks go out to all our friends who gave so abundantly…and we wanted to share a few words of gratitude from Israel:
Thank you so much for your generous contribution towards the construction of our Moishe Rosen Center in Tel Aviv. Your partnership in this project helped us develop a wonderful space, which allows us to be a part of the local community. Through numerous events, from tea parties to art galleries, we have gotten a chance to know our neighbors and have shared with many of them the good news about our Messiah.
– Dan Sered, Israel director
The seeds of generosity that you have sown have been multiplied by constant activity, and lives are being impacted. Besides providing a constant presence and gospel story for those who don’t know Yeshua, the MRC is blessing the Messianic community, hosting youth groups, Bible studies, worship services, training for short term missions and more. Just this last Saturday one of our neighbors saw the door open, and came in to listen to our worship. We are honored that you have stood with us– I am excited to see how your gifts will continue to multiply our gospel outreach in Israel!
– Eli Birnbaum, director of young adult ministry
We are sharing this with all our friends because we want to publicly appreciate those who have such an important role in our Israel work. We also want to remind everyone who loves Yeshua and the Jewish people that your prayers are powerful and much needed! Please remember to pray for God’s blessings on the MRC and on all who enter.
* The 167 people whose names are on the tree are part of a “forest” of friends. They responded to a specific request for funds with gifts of $1,000 or more. Four hundred eighty-seven more people stepped in with equally generous gifts. Their names are not written on this tree, but are written in Messiah’s Book of Life, along with all who love Him and long for others to know Him!
