|Tzfat is a city on a hill with an elevation of 900 meters|
This week we also signed the lease on a new store front in Hadera. We have been providing food cards (to purchase food at local stores) for 17 families in this city of 80,000 along the Mediterranean coast. According to the welfare office, there are 12,000 needy families in this city. With our new store front, we will be able to supplement our food distribution with the availability of clothing and other household items. We will have the grand opening of the Hadera center after Passover.
The Compassion Team is responsible for all of Jacob's Hope's projects in Israel, but they are funded independently of Jacob's Hope. Without their guidance and hard work, many of the opportunities we have to work with local congregations and municipalities would not be available. It is important to us to have their oversight on the ground. They are currently raising support for a second term in Israel, but we can't afford to have the work we began together in Israel be interrupted in order for them to return to the States for an extended period of time (to raise the support they need to live there). Please prayerfully consider supporting this family directly at https://giving.ag.org so they can continue with this important work we have started together.
