Hello, I Stand With Israel. My name is Oriel. I am 21 years old and live in Israel after making Aliyah (immigrating to Israel) at the age of 9 with my parents. To say that living in Israel can be difficult is an understatement, but God is faithful! When we moved from America to Israel, my life started spiraling downwards, and I experienced many difficult years due to my struggle with fear and traumatic situations. Things got worse with time; my phobias increased tremendously resulting in my life dramatically changing. When I was 15 years old I could no longer function in society. I totally withdrew from life and locked myself in my room for one and a half years. I had no hope of ever getting better and having a normal life again. Life for me became very dark. Then God provided a Messianic Jewish counselor to help me find the courage to leave my room. God also provided the finances to do this through you, the faithful donors of I Stand With Israel, without whose help I would not be writing to you as a whole young lady serving Yeshua as I am today. Today I am a much healthier person and work for a Messianic ministry as a secretary. I cannot express my gratitude towards you. I thank you, the ISWI partners for your generosity of heart and that you have given freely just as Yeshua has given us.
