Dear istandwithisrael.com, I wanted to thank you with all my heart for the help that you provided me at my time of need. When I started my life as a new believer, I was afraid of the hardships waiting for me after the rehabilitation period. When I arrived at the House of Victory five years ago, I came from an abandoned home with a heavy addiction to drugs, and with only one bag in which were all my earthly belongings. After coming to faith, I was actually born again to a new family, and you are proof of this to me again and again. Be it those who physically and emotionally stood by me, or people and organizations like you who reached out to help me financially. When looking back, I know that I’ve come to this point because of the Lord and because of people like you. I am glad not only because of my own success, but because of the fact that I will be able to empathize with those who are lost that the Lord will send to me along the way. Already now I serve the Lord at Carmel Congregation in Haifa — using the tools which I have gained to spread the Gospel and the truth of the Scriptures in Israel, and also abroad. Again, thank you for being a vital part of my walk in the footsteps of the Lord and His calling.
