TESTIMONIES

M & MY

My wife and I are very grateful to you for your help and financial contribution. Due to the donation, we were able to pay a large part of our debt and clear out most of the Writs of Execution against us. By the grace of God, my wife will be allowed to open a bank account; the Writ of Execution on her insurance policy will be closed. Thank God for getting us out of slavery to our debts. (This couple saw their small grocery store go into bankruptcy. They have been struggling to pay off their debts for 11 years. […]

A. B.

As I mentioned in the request form, our financial situation was very dire — so much so that we were not able to purchase basic necessities. In our moment of crisis you have helped us with a very substantial amount. Ever since we have received it, we can breathe easier. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the great help you are providing. You helped us in a moment of need — THANK YOU! May our Lord, Messiah Yeshua, reward you.

Zoya L.

Shalom, dear donors and IstandwithIsrael staff. I wanted to thank you for paying for part of my course in David Yelin College. I have been working as a full-time teacher in Makor Ha’Tikvah Messianic School for more than 14 years. Recently I also became a vice-principal of the elementary school. As a teacher and VP, I need to speak a lot with different people (students and their parents) and know how to help and advance them the best. The course of Family Coaching provides such tools and skills, and I am sure I will be able to use them both […]

Olga P.

My husband and I thank your organization for the financial help you granted us. The help covered a part of the loan we took out to purchase a car, which we needed so much. Thank you for your help. We bless you in the name of the Lord.

Miriam G.

I would like to thank you for the gift I received towards studies this year and the last. I have been in the translation business since 1995, but have never had any professional training. In 2012 I enrolled in a two-year program for advanced studies in Hebrew editing, once a week in the afternoon, at the “Oranim” teachers’ seminary. Even that seemed to be too much for us, being a single-parent family and I contemplated leaving my studies for more work. However, the assistance I received last year and this encouraged me and helped cover my tuition and some auxiliary […]

Galia P.

I want to thank you for the amazing scholarship you have given me. This great amount of money is a seed for my studies towards a bachelor’s degree, about which I have been dreaming for years. I have never had the opportunity to get so much money to go towards an academic education. For years, I have prayed to God that somehow He would open the door for me to study. Because I only have a mother, and her financial situation is not that good, everything I had left to do was to pray to the Lord, that He would […]

A. & S. A.

Wow!!! Wow!!! Wow!!! We want to thank the whole staff of IstandwithIsrael for your generous donation. We are speechless! We were left with our mouths open! This is a very generous donation and it will really help us to complete building our home at Moshav (Village) Yad HaShmona. We’re planning to use the funds for kitchen cabinets and bathroom. Especially during this period of time, when it is hard to purchase/build a home in Israel, God has given us miracle after miracle in our lives, and with His help we can build a home. As a young couple with a […]

Shehovtsov Family

We want to thank you for helping us in our need. We purchased an apartment and had to take several different loans. Your support helped us to pay the requested sum for the down payment. Thank you very much! It was a miracle for us — an answer from God to our prayers. May the Lord bless you and help you in your work for His glory.

Valerie

I would like to thank you very much for your very kind support for my studies beginning this year. I am studying to be a midwife assistant (“doula” in Hebrew). My heart’s desire is to help mothers in Israel to have a peaceful delivery and a holy and sanctified time of birth. This study will certify me to monitor pregnant women and assist mothers in giving birth. Thank you again for being used by the Lord to help me in my calling.

L. R.

I want to thank you for giving me the chance to flourish, grow, and feel like a person of significance! After years of lack of confidence regarding studies, and having financial problems, you gave me the opportunity to receive education, to find a suitable framework for me to study, and guidance and tools needed to start moving on. I want to thank you for helping me to cover my study fees. For many people, getting an education is a simple thing, but for me it was a big challenge. Without your support, I would have continued to just dream of […]

Adi

The generosity and support shown to me by I Stand With Israel has blessed and encouraged me to continue trusting the Lord in this season of my life. The blessings that came from your ministry enabled me to begin my third year as a student of social work at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. I appreciate the support very much and do not take it for granted! It has blessed me beyond measure! Thank you very much!

Marcus

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you so much, and all your sponsors and donors for helping me with my Tour Guiding Course in 2010. Thanks to your generosity I have accomplished my studies and today I am a licensed tour guide of Israel. In addition to this, I would like to thank you also for your gift towards my M.A. program now in 2013. I plan to obtain my master’s degree in archeology. From the bottom of my heart to all I Stand With Israel sponsors and donors, THANK YOU! This would not have been possible […]

Tamar Rafaeli

I really want to thank you for your help in covering my tuition fees. I am currently studying in my second year to become a nurse. Eventually I want to work in an Israeli hospital. I want to help people, and to be an example of Yeshua among my people. I am a single parent. It is difficult for me to manage all the expenses of the family by myself. Without your help with my study fees, I would not have been capable of continuing my studies and fulfilling my task as a mother to my children and provide them […]

Yoel Ellis

I greatly appreciate the contribution your donors have made to help me start my business selling organic fruits and vegetables in a new shopping mall in Ramat Ishai, which has a huge potential. Truly it is a blessing for me to have the financial assistance to help me build my store. Without your help I would not have been able to start this project. I pray my store will prosper and be able to provide the people of the Jezreel valley and surroundings with quality health products, a livelihood for my employees and myself, and be able to give and […]

Hagit Dreifinger

I don’t have enough words to thank you for your great help. Since I got sick with cancer I have not been able to work, and my income from the Bituach Leumi (Social Security) is very meager. Your donation enabled me to continue to pay the rent and the basic needs. It encouraged me and strengthened me. God is good, and He has a purpose in everything. I pray for health, and until then He is with me and He promised never to leave me. God used you as a source of blessing in my life.

Ariel & Yael Ben David

We thank you very much for your financial help for us during a hard time in our life. Your assistance really helped us to not go deeply in debt until Yael was able to finish her chemotherapy treatment. Right now Yael prepares for the next step – radioactive treatment for about two months. She will live in Tel Aviv (we are from Eilat). Thank God, my job is much better now than a few months before and we can go on. Again, we thank you so much. You were a real blessing to us and we bless you and wish […]

A.S.

Recently my family and I have received the generous help of IstandwithIsrael, and I wanted to express our deep gratitude for the difference it made for us in a difficult time. We are new immigrants. My wife is unemployed and I am the sole breadwinner in our family. The financial burden fell on my shoulders until I suffered a severe fracture in my leg that left me unable to move. Our financial situation became even more difficult as a result of my injury. We turned to Maoz for help, and thanks to your generous assistance, we were able to cover […]

Oriel M.

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 […]

Muriel Lazarus

Dear I STAND WITH ISRAEL, I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your significant help in my life. If it were not for your donation, I would not have been able to go to university and complete my B.A. degree. My ambition is to continue postgraduate studies and work in the field of photography, video or painting, provided that it is the will of God. My name, Muriel, means “God is my Teacher,” which has always been the foundation in my life. Thank you very much for your huge blessing! There are not enough words […]

Ilana E.

I was blessed to receive your generous donation, as I needed serious dental work that I could not afford. The help and the support moved me from the bottom of my heart, because without it, I would not have had the possibility to reconstruct my teeth. I am a single mother of four, working part time for minimum pay and I’m 100% disabled. I am not able to work in a full-time position. My current monthly expenses are heavy and I was totally unable to cover the cost of my dental care. I bless you in the name of our […]

Yoav Maoz

I want to thank you for the generous financial help that was given to me by ISWI, which has greatly helped me in the process of opening the business. In April I opened a carpentry workshop at Moshav Yad HaShmona, for which I was in need of a considerable investment of money, to purchase the needed equipment. With God’s help, I managed to recruit most of the needed funds by taking loans, using savings, and now that I received a donation from ISWI — it will help me significantly to purchase all needed machines and equipment for the carpentry workshop! Thank […]

S.P.

A special and great big Thank You for blessing us as a couple, and for helping to provide for our Hebrew language online lessons. This pricey, yet valuable, course allows me to improve my vocabulary and skills in the Hebrew language at hours when I am free from my job. I work with a Holocaust charity for Holocaust survivors. For many of us living and working here in Israel, the daily expenses and rent are very high – Tel Aviv being one of the most expensive cities in the world. Thank you for caring and for investing into another believing […]

The Geltman Family

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Yeshua the Messiah, We thank you for your help and what you’ve done for us. With the donation you granted us, we’ve been able to pay our debts and bills that had piled up. I could not work due to a serious liver disease, and therefore was qualified to receive disability. However, the national insurance was delayed, and put my family in a serious financial situation. You came in at the most difficult stage in our lives! Our prayers were answered through you! We pray that God would bless you and recompense you manifold for […]

Natali K.

My name is Natali and I am 17 years old. I study at a school in an intensified course that combines advanced scientific studies; five units of chemistry, physics, mathematics and English. Together with that I also participate in various scientific programs that are even the very first in their field. The school fee is higher because of the special academic program and the various projects, but thanks to you I was able to cover my last tuition fee in this school. Together with my studies I am also taking a pre-university course, for which I was able to pay, […]

Rivka A.

Pastor of Ethiopian Messianic Congregation: I am writing to thank you for your generous 20,000 NIS ($5,000 U.S.) financial support. I was very happy when I received the good news. The financial assistance you provided will be of great help to us in paying our congregational expenses, and it will allow us to concentrate more of our time on serving our flock. I would like to thank you once again for your support, and hope that you would keep supporting us in the future as well, because your financial support is vital in order for us to fulfill our roles […]

A Galilean Minister

Dear Friends, When I started to write an important paper about Islam for my Ph.D., many were happy and eager to see it done. There has been much enthusiasm over my theme as I am an Arab believer writing a dissertation in Hebrew that will help Arab and Jewish believers to understand the truth about Islam, and to know better how to reach Muslims with the Gospel. Yet, you dear saints were the only organization which helped financially with a generous gift of 25,000 NIS which allowed me to reduce my working hours and give myself more fully to finishing […]

Mati Shoshani

Thank you so much for the generous scholarship. These funds will allow me to continue pursuing my studies towards a degree in political science, international relations, and history. Your work among the Body of Messiah in Israel is a true blessing. I am deeply grateful for your ongoing investment in my higher education. Thank you.

Daniel Stanger

Dear brothers, as I was beginning my studies, I started praying to God to give me the right amount of money which I need to pay for my courses! While I was praying I heard about the opportunity to ask for help from istandwithisrael.com. I filled out the forms, gave everything into His hands, and here I am thanking you for your support, which was a great help for me in paying for my studies. This is how I paid for all my courses! Thanks a lot, and may God bless you abundantly and give you strength in fulfilling His […]

Eric Morey

Dear istandwithisrael.com, I wanted to give you a taste of what has been happening with our youth on the Brazil missions trip you helped make possible. THANK YOU for your generous support of $4,000 for this life-changing experience for many of our youth from Poriya and Nazareth. God bless.

Joseph Haddad

Pastor for A.K. at “River of God” Lebanese congregation in Nahariya, Israel in Nahariya, Israel, Thank you on behalf of brother A.K. and his entire family for extending the arm of help to cover their debt at the bank through the funds of istandwithisrael.com. What makes the whole issue very significant is that this Arab Christian family was amazed to know that their rescue came from a Messianic organization such as Maoz and istandwithisrael.com. Words fail to describe the joy that filled their hearts and their home as I handed over your check to them. Shouts of praise went up […]

Jacob and Elisheva Damkani

Dear Beloved, What a heart you have! Thank you so very much for helping us in such a wonderful way with $10,000 to help us house Israeli citizens who have fled their homes because of rockets launched by Hamas. We are very moved and pray that the Lord will richly bless you as you are blessing so many people here in Israel and all over the world. We are very blessed with our visitors from the South at our Gilgal Hotel, and we are amazed to see how the Lord organized all this: He brought believers and also non-believers. A […]

Zilber G.

I have been a member of Adonai Roi congregation for six years. I had a stroke that left me in a wheelchair. I would like to express my gratitude to istandwithisrael. With your donation of NIS 12,000 I was able pay for the remodeling of my apartment, which required many changes to accommodate my disability. When I cried out for help to the Lord and to you in the name of Yeshua, He answered through the help you provided. Thank you.

Shelly

Culinary Wonders, I want to thank you so much for your generous donation to the advancing of my business. This gift is being used to buy some gear and equipment for the catering, and also give me some time and “breathing space” to work on my recipes and cookbook. I am working on healthy and tasty recipes, mainly Mediterranean cuisine with a healthy twist. This business is my calling from God, and is indeed a testimony to those around me, because of my history of back problems. My clients and friends see what the Lord has done in my life. […]

Phillipe & Nancy T.

We have been really blessed to receive your financial support to develop our activities for children as clowns in Israel. With your help we could afford new wireless microphones, we recorded new songs in a studio, and we built a new website and business cards for advertising our activities. We have been rejoicing to see new doors opening as we received an invitation to perform some of our stories and songs in the north of Israel for the feasts of Hanukkah, Purim and Pessah (Passover). We are very thankful to your organization for helping us to go through these critical […]

Sergey & Elena D.

Thank you so much for the financial help you provided for our family. Because of the difficult financial situation many bills have piled up and our overdraft in the bank has increased. With the money we received we were able to cover the overdraft and pay a part of the bills. We are not sure how we would have done this without your help. You were an answer to our prayer. We are thankful that God gave you this opportunity to help people and be an answer to their prayers.

Ilan

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 […]

Pepi and Vesco M.

We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the generous financial gift you sent us! Your support came at a time when we needed it most. We needed some help in order to be able to take a mortgage from the bank and purchase an apartment,  before we would lose our rights as new immigrants in Israel. By buying the apartment God allowed us to set roots in Israel, raise and bring our children up as a strong part of the society here and in Biblical values. By moving to the new town, we will […]

Christie L.

I gratefully received your donation of NIS 7,000 today. Thank you for this precious gift! I am a single 50-year-old mom, and my third child, who is still living with me is 13. We came to Israel 9.5 years ago with my son and daughter. Life is full of challenges,  which we overcome with God’s help. The last two years have been especially trying with so many things going on that I found it increasingly difficult to cope. I was diagnosed with several ailments, my daughter was discovered to have several serious learning and other disabilities, and recently she was […]

C. & R. S.

We just wanted to thank you for the scholarship C. received for the tuition for two Hebrew classes at the University of Haifa. He got a 93% on the midterm and is speaking so much more Hebrew around the home. Thank you for your generosity.

David & Leah Ortiz and family

Dear istandwithisrael, We are writing to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the generous offering we received to cover the legal expenses we’ve incurred as a result of the Purim package bombing in our home on March 20, 2008. Your gift has eased the financial burden that this event has placed on our family, as Ami has been in the hospital for 4 months now. The legal costs are high, and the case and investigation is continuing, and your covering the cost of the lawyer will enable us to continue until the perpetrators are found. We thank […]

Alberto and Rachel S.

Please accept our deepest gratitude for the gift of NIS 4000 received from you. As always with the Lord we serve, it came in HIS perfect timing for us, when the bills were piling up, especially after Alberto had fewer days at work because of his back injury. We were greatly encouraged and will keep praying for you, that the Lord God will continuously pour out His provision for your fund, so you can keep on reaching out to help other fellow believers in Yeshua who live in Israel, who also struggle constantly to make ends meet, and provide for […]

Barry and Dalia R.

We just want to let you know that we received your generous gift and that we are very thankful. You have been a great help to us. Thank you so much for your generosity and support of believers in the Land.

B. Family

I wish to express my deep gratitude to you for your tremendously generous gift of NIS 23,000 (approx US$ 5750). Your gift made it possible for me to close debts I was left with, as well as new ones, when my personal situation changed drastically and unexpectedly a year and a half ago, after my husband of 18 years walked away. It helped me to keep the business which I started in 1996, and to use its resources to spread God’s Word about Israel to the many intercessors abroad. As a single mother with two adolescents, and in light of […]

Shosh N.

Thank you for your response to my cry for help. Something happened to my right hand and it is not functioning the way it used to. My ability to earn wages has been significantly reduced, and I wasn’t able to keep up with rent and bills. This support has created an opportunity for me to have some breathing space until my hand is restored and is fully functioning, so that I could return to full-time work. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for your help.

Juventus and Daniela P.

We want to thank you so much for your help in financing Juventus’ studies. It had been on his heart to study this course for a while. He started studying and soon was convinced that his was exactly what God wanted him to do. The materials that he studies will help him to become more effective in his ministry, and we believe the certificate that he will receive at the end of the course will open doors to people from various backgrounds, including people in the business world. Your donation has enabled him to move on to a more professional […]

Gleb S.

Living Israel Messianic Congregation, We want to thank you for your donation of NIS 15,000 (about $4,300) that you sent us. This money helped us very much to buy food and pay bills during this hard time. We now have more than one hundred people men and women — who decided to come to the rehab center and with God’s help, get free from their addictions. We are happy to say that this month we rented the new house that will accommodate more people as well as those who serve in the ministry. This house will also be used for our […]

Sean & Ayelet S.

Grace in the Desert — Simeon’s Cry Ministries We would like to thank you with all our hearts for helping to cover so much of the debt that we acquired in getting the non-profit for Beer Sheva up and running. You will never know how much you have helped us. We appreciate you, and I am sure the people of Beer Sheva also appreciate you. You have helped make an eternal impact on our city.

Michaella L.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping us in our time of need. You have truly blessed us! I needed an emergency hip replacement surgery. The regular hospitals were booked up for a year. My doctor said he could take me on a private basis, but the cost was way beyond our means. So we really appreciate your coming to help us at this time. The surgery was a success and went very smoothly.

Jacob & Seema J.

Adonai Roi Congregation, I have received 4,000 NIS (about $1,200) from you to help during this needy time. At the same time, I have also received the word from the Lord: “The young lions do lack and suffer hunger, but they that seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.” (Psalm 34:10) Thank you! You are men of God, and according to Him you provide help for the needy.

C. Family

“And some fell on good ground and sprang forth and yielded good fruit.” Luke 8:8 Thank you for spotting good ground, and sowing in it according to the Word. We are expecting and hoping for good fruit to grow from your seed. Thank you for supporting and standing with our family in purchasing and building our new home. We are grateful!

A. V.

Since the aliya to Israel with my family in 2003, I have been studying in the university in as an undergraduate, aspiring to accomplish something noteworthy for my people and country. My wife and I have three children in their teens. After four years of my studies we have used up all the resources we had when we came to Israel. I am going to continue studying to get my Master’s degree. I want to thank istandwithisrael for the support I received, as it helps me fulfill my dream to receive an education in Israel that will allow me to […]

Rachel R.

I thank the Lord Our God for you and your ministry, and my prayer is that many people abroad will continue to state “I STAND WITH ISRAEL”, not only in prayer, but in this very practical way. May Our Father multiply the fruits of your righteousness.

Arik and Mona P.

We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the scholarship you gave us for Arik’s studies on “Domestic Finances”. We pray and hope that we can serve the Lord faithfully through that knowledge. May the Lord bless you 100-fold.

Tamar D.

I want to thank you from all of my heart for your financial support. It was critical for me at this stage of my life, when I am in the beginning of my academic life at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, and also getting married. The support will help me to pay the university fee and living expenses in the near future, and will help me to invest most of my attention to the studies. Again, thank you so very much, may God bless you!

Tom & Ronit B.

Dear istandwithisrael, Your letter, enclosed with a check for NIS 5,000, has just arrived in the mail. Ronit and I are so very grateful to you and “I Stand With Israel” for so generously sowing into the work that the Lord has given us to do. Thank you so much for all you have done. We are at present part of Kehilat HaCarmel, and live to serve the Lord here. We both do volunteer work, with little money attached to it. We do not want to hold regular jobs so that we can be free to evangelize. We work with […]

Pastor Leon Mazin

Congregation Shavei Tsion in Kiryat Yam, We have received the check in the amount of NIS 44595 (US$ 11,150) to bless the members of Shavei Tsion congregation. Please know our considerable gratitude, and convey it to your entire team. Your swift and compassionate action meant a great deal to our people. We do not take your sacrifice and love for granted. Thank you for being real friends and partners.

Ivan T.

I am a student in the last year at the Hadassa Institute, in the area of Graphic Design and Printing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for blessing me and my family through your generous gift. My parents, who are financing my studies, were greatly helped by your donation. My mother is very thankful, and I think you have sowed the seed [of faith] in her heart, as well as in the hearts of all my family, as they are not believers [in Yeshua] yet. I trust God that he will use this financial blessing of yours and […]

Chaim & Leah

Congregation Ahavat Yeshua in Jerusalem, Dear Ari, Shira and Partners: We are still in shock from your completely unexpected grant! Your support, along with our congregation’s assistance, have provided everything we need to cover a full year of our daughters’ education and day care so that Leah can finish writing the first draft of her doctoral dissertation through the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, on Messianic Jewish Identity in Israel. Words cannot express how grateful we are for your decision. As you well know, we live on a shoestring budget in comparison with our professional western colleagues, because of our principled […]

Calev Myers

On behalf of the Jerusalem Institute of Justice, I wish to express my deepest gratitude to you for your generous donation. The “Jerusalem Institute of Justice” (JIJ) offers judicial assistance to individuals and organizations in all that is connected to the foundational values of human rights and social justice. I have no doubt that with your generous donation will be able to assist more people in their fight to promote and raise the awareness of citizen rights in Israel.

Michal G.

Thank you for the gift of NIS 7400 ($1850) you sent me to cover my dental treatment. I thank God for blessing me through your service unto Him. Your work is important and blessed, and you are laboring through His heart in His love for His sheep. First of all you are a blessing to God’s heart. Thank you for following Him with all your heart. May the Lord bless you and your families, with the abundance that comes from God.

D. K., Native Israeli

The condition of my teeth was deteriorating quickly. A rotten tooth was causing infection in my gums and my pain was so excruciating I needed a root canal. The dentist told me I could wait no longer, and it must be done. But I had no money to treat it. Your money came right from the hands of God. When I received the check it was out of God’s hands and heart of care for me. Thank you for your kindness and your giving. No words can express how thrilling it is to be without pain and my teeth fixed. […]

Felix R.

Congregation Mayim Chayim, I want to testify to God’s grace! We were in a very difficult financial situation, and every month our problems compounded into yet more problems. Pretty soon, we found ourselves in a state of desperation and we knew it would take a miracle to pull ourselves out of this situation. We prayed that the Lord would deliver us, as we were trying to live and do everything according to the scriptures, but at the same time, we asked God to show us if we were doing anything wrong that would cause this situation. During the time I […]

Rivka E.

Congregation Tiferet Yeshua in Tel Aviv, I want to thank you and the istandwithisrael.com fund from the bottom of my heart as I have been helped so generously. A few years ago, I began to suffer from pain in my knees and other joints. In addition, I also suffer from diabetes and high blood pressure. Last year, I had no alternative but to go through a knee replacement operation. The plan was to start on my right knee and, after a period of rehabilitation, to continue on the left. The operation was not very successful and the rehabilitation was long, […]

Andrei L.

Congregation Morning Star in Tiberias, I want to heartily thank you for the gift you sent which will enable me to take a one-year course to be a Microsoft Certified System Administrator. This course will not only help me to provide for my family, but also aid me in using media for the Lord’s work. I had been praying for such help to come from the Lord, and it came on time. I am grateful to God for His faithfulness and provision through you. Please thank the donors for me, my wife and our 4 children.

Nitzan and Moriel A.

Congregation Tiferet Yeshua in Tel Aviv, We want to thank you for your generous donation of NIS 8000 towards Moriel’s studies (B.A. in children’s education). This school year is Moriel’s fourth and final year at the college. The yearly tuition is about NIS 8000. Sometime during this year, Moriel will also be giving birth to our first child. Your donation makes it possible for us to pay that amount, for her to give birth, and to finish her degree without any worries. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and bless you in His name.

Maria L.

Congregation Mayim Chayim, I want to thank you so much for your help which made such a difference in the difficult situation I was confronting. As a result of your help, I could finally pay off my debt, my bills and buy the medicine I needed but was unable to afford. It is my personal belief that helping people like me is a God-inspired effort, and for that I thank Him. It is wonderful to know that He helps those He loves and who believe and trust in Him. May God bless you.

Oxana E.

I would like to express my warm feelings and thanks to you for your support and for the trust you have put in me. I am truly blessed and have so much for which to thank God. I had been praying for some time, asking Him to lead me and show me His will regarding my future. Recognizing the many talents that the Lord has given me, I truly wanted to know where to put my focus. My heart’s desire was really to study more in the field of media which included video, editing, animation, etc. but I wasn’t sure […]

Congregation Nahalat Yeshua

I want to thank you for your gift to me. Since my childhood in Moldova, I have had a fear of dentists and, therefore, did not go for regular dental care. My wife and I are musicians, and lately we have been working on a new musical program in order to bless Israel and also the nations. At this time, my teeth really began to trouble me and it was clear that I could not go on performing — singing and playing wind instruments with teeth like mine. Praise God that He finally broke my fear of going to the dentist. […]

Moriel

Congregation Tiferet Yeshua in Tel Aviv, I want to thank the istandwithisrael.com team for the generous donation of 6,000 shekels to help finance my bachelor’s degree in teaching and education of nursery school children. This year will be my third at college. Because my studies are not only towards an academic degree but also a profession, I must dedicate many hours to working without pay as well as studying, therefore it makes it impossible for me to finance my studies. This donation enables me to successfully complete my studies. I just want to say that the donations of istandwithisrael.com are […]

Galina S.

For some time I have been dreaming about having my own cosmetology business at home. When I was laid off my my job at the beauty salon, I felt this was the time for me to make the move. I want to thank istandwithisrael.com for the grant with which I purchased equipment, furniture and products needed to start my own business.

Olga

We want to thank you and your organization for 10,000 shekels which has helped our family financially. We recently bought a small apartment and then suddenly my husband was laid off from his job. I just gave birth to our second son, and will only be able to go back to work after three months. Because of all this, we had fallen into debt with no way in sight to pay it back. But thanks to you and those who have contributed, we have solved that problem and are now out of debt. Thank you so much. We pray that […]

Shosh

I want to thank you for the gift of NIS 5,000 enabling me to attend my second year of university. It is clear to me that God has used you to open this door for me, and make it possible for me to study yet another year. This year, part of my curriculum includes studying the books of the Bible: Jeremiah, Samuel, Song of Solomon and Hosea [from an Orthodox point of view]. As I also am studying the “History of the Jewish People,” I chose the period of the Bible and the Middle Ages. Through the lectures, God has […]

L. S.

Dear friends and family, 2017 was filled with changes! From graduating from high school in Jerusalem, to attending Christ For the Nations Institute (CFNI) Bible College in Dallas (THANK YOU, IstandwithIsrael, for making it possible!); from living at home to stepping out and living on campus; and learning to discern the voice of God for His destiny for my life. During the last semester at CFNI my Heavenly Father did so graciously reveal himself in ways unimaginable, and lovingly tended to my heart to prepare me for the upcoming season, where I will be in the Israeli Defense Force (the IDF). My service involves […]

Beit HaYeshua

Dear friends in Maoz, We wish to thank you so much for your generous support to the ministry of Beit HaYeshua. We rejoice for your commitment to continue to partner with us also this year. May the Lord abundantly bless you all and your ministry. “… Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. And he that reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit unto life eternal: that both he that sows and he that reaps may rejoice together.” (John 4:35-36) Blessing you from Jerusalem, The leadership team of Beit HaYeshua; Vova, Roni, […]

Adina

Adina is an Ethiopian woman in her thirties, a single mother of four living in an Ethiopian neighborhood in Netanya. Until three years ago she was married to a man she married when she was very young. Although he is an alcoholic and a gambler, she stayed with him until he became abusive, and she feared for the safety of her children and herself. The last months with him were very difficult and one very traumatic episode caused the neighbors to call the police, which ultimately resulted in his arrest and their divorce. Today she has a restraining order and […]

Ohalei Rachamim – Tents of Mercy

Dear Brothers and Sisters at Maoz, Thank you very much for supporting two of our families in need. We greatly appreciate your help in easing their financial burdens. You are such an example to the body of believers in Israel as you diligently meet their growing needs with a tender and genuine heart. Please know that we will continue your attitude of support, as the funds go directly to the people we specified. I believe our partnership will bring forth much fruit for the kingdom as lives are being changed through prayer and service. Please find attached two thank you […]

Makor HaTikvah Messianic Day School

Dear Ari and Shira and Friends of Maoz Israel: Please accept our deepest thanks for the help given to our studying teachers through the fund of “I Stand With Israel.” These four teachers are the last ones to finish their degrees and teaching certificates, and two of them will do so by next year. This will help us to comply with the standards of the Israeli Ministry of Education so that our school can be considered for State recognition. Of course, a teacher’s salary does not provide for the high costs of studying so this is a tremendous help to […]

Dugit Center and Adonai Roi Messianic Congregation

Dear I stand with Israel, We at Dugit Center and Adonai Roi Messianic Congregation would like to thank you so much for your overwhelming assistance to our congregations over the years. Your foundation has been truly faithful in helping these families and widows in need. We cannot begin to thank you and your supporters enough for these generous gifts. They have been extremely beneficial in aiding Israeli believers through an often difficult season in their lives. May the Fruits of your service continue to bring glory and honor to our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, and may He continue to touch […]

Yakov

I am 25 years old and from Ashdod. As a professional chef, and I studied culinary at Ha’Chef College. Today I work at a coffee shop located in a gym in Ashdod. Youth from our congregation work at the coffee shop, and we use this as an opportunity to spread the Gospel. I grew up in a traditional Jewish family that keeps Jewish customs and traditions. My entire life I was taught that the name of Yeshua was “Yeshu,” (meaning, ‘may His name and the remembrance of Him be blotted out’). I was told he was a god of the […]

Rustam & Alyssa

We are new immigrants from the Ukraine, with a 4-year-old daughter, Moriel. My name is Rustam, and I am 33. I first heard about Yeshua at 18. I met an acquaintance, who I knew was a drug addict and a criminal, and he told me about the Lord Yeshua who changed his life. At that point I had been a drug addict for seven years. This acquaintance took me to a rehabilitation center where I was set free from drugs. I had several failures in my life, but I always knew I could only get help from the Lord. Today […]

Marco & Rinat

I was born in the Communist island of Cuba in 1975, to a family of Sephardic ancestry. Raised in a secular environment, I was taught early that God was the ‘opium of the people.’ Nevertheless, through the years, I ‘somehow’ earnestly searched for the truth about God and answers to the many existential questions I had. No one could truly answer. After a long struggle for freedom from Communism, in 1995 I immigrated to the United States.[…]

Soldiers

Thanks to your donation to “Yachad L’Maan HaHayal” (“Together for the Soldiers”), we continue our activities for the well-being of the IDF and Border Police soldiers—education and welfare projects, care for thousands of lone soldiers [whose parents do not live in Israel], support of soldiers from poor families, etc. Together with you we’ll continue to give them a warm and loving hug. This year we are establishing a new project initiated by the Chief of Staff—a Scholarship Fund for discharged IDF soldiers. With your gifts, this fund will grant academic/professional training scholarships to each released soldier. In other words, in […]

Marina

Marina is the mother of two wonderful boys, Eric and Adam. Unfortunately, she found herself in a very tough situation. Her husband abandoned her and returned to Russia, leaving her with the children. Her husband took all the money they had and left her with nothing. The youngest was then only four months old, and the oldest almost two. While recovering from surgery, with two small children at home, she was unable to work. She asked for help from her congregation, and received a gift from I Stand With Israel. […]

Alla

Alla is married to Aleksey Reichshtadt and they have three children—Moriel, Roni and Tali.[…] “I came to faith in early 1993.  I was always searching for God in my heart, and when I was twelve, I first met believers in Yeshua, who invited me to a service. Since then faith in Messiah has become the main part of my life. My mother began attending services together with me and she, too, gave her heart to Messiah. Six months later, my father became a believer. This was a great testimony for us, that God hears our prayers. “In 1998, I married […]

Moti

I am 33 years old, a Sabra (native Israeli) Jewish believer in Yeshua. I came to faith in Yeshua back in 2009. Then, by the grace of God, I received a bachelor’s degree in Systematic Theology from Israel College of the Bible. As part of my ministry with One For Israel Ministries, I started writing scripts, commercials, and teaching the Bible. My ministry involved online evangelistic videos that have been watched in Israel over 10 million times! Two years ago, God put it on my heart to study writing. My purpose was to improve the way I write scripts and […]

Dan

I work as a full-time security guard at a bank, and my wife works in the post office. I am 24 years old. We are actively involved in our congregation and help with ministry for kids and youth. We have a great interest in studying the Word of God and are investing time, energy, finances, and all possible resources to help the Body of Messiah in Israel grow and develop. I want to study economic sciences, as I see a great need to help congregations with quality administration. I was born into a family of believers, but during the army […]

Tanya

My family made aliyah from Ukraine in 2001, when I was thirteen years old. My husband, Leonid, made aliyah from Russia when he was ten years old. We both come from believing families and have been serving God since we were children. Leonid is a fitness coach, specializing in CrossFit. We met about three years ago at the gym and married about a year later. I have always wanted to work within the health care system, with a goal of earning a degree in management. I started my B.A. studies in Healthcare Systems Management in 2014. This is my third […]

Andrew

I was born in the United States to an American mother and a Japanese father whose family immigrated to California five generations ago. My parents raised me in a family devoted to God and His Son. While I was completing an M.A. in English education, my parents began to attend a Messianic Jewish congregation in Fresno and I went along. I went to work as an English teacher, praying that God would show me the direction for my life’s work. Through a series of events, I went to Israel to seek the Lord about my future. I met Shani, a […]

Little Hearts Preschool

Little Hearts Preschool is in the heart of Jerusalem, a unique and diverse city that is home to many nationalities and cultures. The 62 children who attend our preschool reflect this diversity. Here, within the walls of our preschool, we work, play, and learn together based on our mutual faith in Yeshua. We use a Montessori-inspired curriculum that sets the tone of our preschool as a creative, curious, calm, and peaceful environment. Our staff is a wonderful blend of Messianic Jewish and Arab Christian teachers working together to provide a […]
