This year, Tikvat Yacov sponsored 5 Passover outreaches in the cities of Akko, Karmiel, Kiryat Shmona, Maalot and Tel Aviv. We were very excited to hold these events this year as we could see God preparing the hearts of many of these individuals to hear about their Messiah in the story of Passover.
In Kiryat Shmona our partners, Rivers of Living Water had 80 people, half of which had never been to one of their outreaches before, came to see a musical drama of the story of "Exodus." Many of these people were so touched by the drama that they came to the leadership to inquire about attending services or to learn more about the God of Israel and His plan for salvation.
We also sponsored a Passover Seder with our partners, Rivers of Living Water, in Karmiel. More than 100 people came to the Seder. When we were finished, we asked those interested in receiving salvation through the Passover Lamb to stand up. Immediately two people jumped up and in all over 30 people stood to pray for salvation.
We are not only touching the needy in Israel, but many people are being touched when they see what we are doing to help their communities. In one of the cities where we held an outreach, a government official thanked us for the work we were doing and wanted to make sure that we had everything we needed from them in order to continue our work in that city. This official knows what we believe, and was still interested in helping us. This is not always the case in Israel where we have been denied the opportunity to rent various locations because of our beliefs.
You can see more information about our outreach in Tel Aviv, with our partner Agape, from Avi Mizrachi in our previous post.
