The poor of Israel are crying out for help—will you answer their pleas?

"There are more than 200,000 Holocaust survivors living in Israel today. They have suffered great horrors, beyond what we can imagine. Now in their elderly years, many of them are struggling again with deep poverty. Thousands of them cannot afford to buy food, pay rent, purchase medicine and heat their tiny apartments. So they go hungry and sit and shiver in the cold of winter. This is a great tragedy. I am writing to ask if you will join me to put food on their tables and warm clothing on their backs today.
Together we can show our love for God by showing His love to the poor of the House of Israel. Today they are suffering greatly from the cold of winter. There is no good time to be poor. I remember vividly digging through dumpsters when I was a boy looking for something to eat. But during the winter the problem is even worse as cold adds to the suffering of hunger and sickness for those who do not have enough money to buy food, medicine and housing, and also pay for heat.

Together we can tell them—and more importantly show them—that they are not alone! My heart is breaking over this suffering. Because you love Israel and the Jewish people, I am asking you today to join me in helping us meet these urgent needs. Together we can provide urgently needed food, as well as warm blankets, coats and hats to the poor of Israel. Your gift today will be God’s arms of love wrapped around a shivering Jewish man, woman or child.
When you send your gift to bless the poor of Israel, we will send you these beautiful “Comfort Ye My People” note cards.    

If you are able to send a gift of $40 or more, we will send you the note cards and this special plate designed especially for members of the Jerusalem Prayer Team.    
If you are able to send a gift of $100 or more, we will send you the note cards and this lovely color “Comfort Ye My People” afghan.
It’s a great prayer reminder as well as a way to share your support for Israel with everyone who sees it.    

The Bible says, “If you help the poor, you are lending to the LORD—and he will repay you!” (Proverbs 19:17, NLT) Today I am asking you to join with me in lending back to God part of the resources He has provided to you by helping the poor of Israel. It is brutally cold this winter, especially for those who cannot afford heat and warm water…but together we can show them that they are not forgotten or forsaken.

Your support of the Jerusalem Prayer Team allows us to meet urgent humanitarian needs of the poor of Israel, particularly for the elderly Holocaust survivors. These dear people have suffered so much, and most of them have no living family members to help care for them. Most have never seen an act of love from a Christian—and that must change!

Your gift today could literally be the difference between life and death for these poor people. The bitter winter places great strain on their weakened bodies. They need warm clothing, nutritious food and other basic necessities of life. We must respond to these urgent needs. Now that we have the Jerusalem World Center in operation we can do so much more—but only with your help. I am asking you today to send your best gift so that we can help as many people as possible.
When you give to support the Jerusalem Prayer Team, you are blessing what God wants to bless, and when you do, you will receive His favor and blessing. Thank you so much for being part of this vital effort to defend, support, and bless the nation of Israel and the Jewish people.

Barukh attah Adonai, melekh m’hulal batishbachot.
Blessed are you Lord, a King to be praised in adoration.
Your ambassador to Jerusalem,
Dr. Mike Evans"
