The man standing in the foreground dressed in black is ultra-Orthodox of Sephardic descent [Jews who come from Arab countries]. Next to him in line is a secular, Ashkenazi Jewish man [from Europe or Russia], and next to him is an Arab Muslim man. The man at the head of the line is a Sudanese refugee. From the picture, you can see that we’re serving a diverse cross section of the Israeli population.
For four months now we have been reaching our goal of making 1,000 meals for the poor and needy every month through our project Feed Tel Aviv.
Who exactly are these needy individuals in Tel Aviv we’re reaching out to? The answer is, Jews and Arabs, men and women, prostitutes and drug addicts. The homeless. Whoever is hungry.
What these people have in common is that all of them are hungry. We’ve noticed these people aren’t just hungry for food; their souls are hungry for the Word of Truth.
After they’ve sat and satisfied their physical hunger, some of them begin asking spiritual questions. Therefore, whenever we serve the immediate physical hunger of the needy, we also end up sharing the gospel, giving witness to what Yeshua has done in our lives and talking about the biblical prophesies which tell about who Israel’s Messiah is.
All of this important work we are doing is thanks to your generous support. Therefore, it’s important for me to say “thank you” with my whole heart in the name of all of those who receive food from us every week – both physical and spiritual food.
Please remember to keep the Feed Tel Aviv project in your prayers. We know it is the Lord’s will that we support the poor and needy in our city, Tel Aviv.
