With more than one in five Israelis living in poverty, the opportunities to bless both Jewish and Arab people are always before us. Working with local partners on the ground, The Joshua Fund's Israeli team is currently providing food to more than a dozen distribution centers serving more than 1,500 families monthly. Your prayers and gifts empower The Joshua Fund to carry out this important work. As you watch this video, please pray that many open doors will continue to be available to our partners on the ground as they care for those in need.
We share the love of God by first showing the love of God. Since our founding in 2006, The Joshua Fund has invested millions of dollars in blessing Holocaust survivors, the elderly, single mothers, homeless people, widows, orphans, and other poor and needy Jews, Muslims and Christians in the epicenter.
"Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes or daily food. If one of you says to him, 'Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,' but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it?" (James 2:15-16 NIV). In partnership with local congregations and other allies, we use a significant portion of our funding to order, stock, and provide food monthly through more than a dozen Distribution Centers located throughout the Land. The food is then provided through these centralized Distribution Centers or in some cases, by home delivery, to assist the poor and needy in the name of Jesus.
The Joshua Fund has continually impressed my wife, Christina, and me from the start of our relationship with them.
May 10, 2021: A very painful night here. Over 250 rockets fired at Israel since 6 pm last night. Over 700 Palestinians wounded in riots on Temple Mount, in Old City, and throughout West Bank.
