Here in Israel we are already preparing for the upcoming 70th anniversary celebrations in April 2018. That Israel has survived 70 years in this region is a miracle and only by the grace of God. "Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day?" (Isaiah 66:8). Now, on the eve of Israel's seventieth birthday, the government is planning a spectacular celebration next spring. In addition, Israel's friends from all over the world have been invited. We, together with our tour group, will be celebrating Israel's 70th Independence Day.
In honor of this occasion we will be preparing a jubilee edition, reaching as many people as possible. Presenting facts about Israel is not as easy as many think and often quite difficult, even in Christian circles. Many Christian organizations have rejected all cooperation with Israel Today in recent years? The reasoning for their attitude is that Israel Today is far too direct on issues regarding Israel and is too controversial for the Christian message. It does not have to be this way!
Where people close doors to us, God opens gates and this I believe. Together, we can increase the reach of Israel Today's Jubilee edition in the spring and present Israel to a wide audience. It will cost us approx $1 (printing, postage and handling) to reach people with news from Israel about Israel. We need to fund this effort and we can only do it with the help of our friends.
We are dependent on you to help this anniversary project succeed! "Thus says the LORD: I have returned to Zion and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem, and Jerusalem shall be called the faithful city, and the mountain of the LORD of hosts, the holy mountain." (Zechariah 8:3)
God's sincere blessings from Zion!
