Gaza & the West Bank, Every Soul Matters. Reaching Hurting Families in Gaza a Must Read
It’s hard to breakthrough the regional biases that plagues the land of Israel. For us, we’ve been gifted (and burdened) with hearts to care for the Arabic speaking communities and Jewish communities across the land. This includes the war-torn city of Gaza.
Unlike almost any other location in the world, Gaza is crushed with destruction. Sadly, when we close our eyes to pray for the families in Gaza, our minds can’t help but be penetrated with images. Building after building hit with incoming missiles. Explosions. Fire. Debris. House after house collapsed. It’s hard to forget the videos and pictures of the dead bodies mutilated across the streets, and the hospitals overcrowded with bloodied and maimed people.
Sister Dina, who serves with the HLM Jerusalem congregation moved to Gaza thirty years ago with her husband Saliba. Recently, her heart was overcome with burden for the city, so she decided to team up with Pastor Steve and deliver food packages to the poor.
Dina distributed many food packages along with Bible materials to the poorest of poor in Gaza. She reported that “the situation in Gaza is so bad, many unemployed, poor people, no food, no electricity, and that every family has a difficult story.” She added, “The war makes it even worse. Many people have had their homes destroyed and many have to sleep in gardens.”
Dina is also a cancer survivor. She was miraculously healed. So with every gift she distributes in Gaza, she tells of this cancer-healing miracle from Yesua (Jesus). She uses her story of salvation and healing to share the Gospel and tell people about the work of Jesus, We’re thankful Dina has a heart to sow seed in one of the most difficult regions in the entire world. We’re also grateful God put us in a position to reach this hard place.
Thank you for financially standing with HLM to stand with our team like Dina, and the other servants on the ground throughout Gaza! Please keep us in prayer as we continue stepping into this challenging outreach.
With the Love of Yesua,
Every Soul in the Holy Land counts!
