Truly I tell you…

Project First Fruits is designed to assist the Household of Faith (Community of Believers) in Israel. It is one of the projects that was always near and dear to my father’s heart (Ray Sanders, CFI co-founder).

Recently, because of your generous support, CFI was honored to be able to provide financial assistance, as well as much needed clothing from our Distribution Center, to a ministry that provides encouragement, care and is a “Safe Haven” to those that have found themselves on the streets with nowhere else to turn. Your donations, both tangible and financial, are helping to bring people out of the bondage of abuse, dependency, and immorality.

These needy and hurting people are the ones that much of today’s society overlooks. Yet it was Yeshua, himself, who ministered to the sinful, the unclean, the unhealthy, the tax collectors, beggars, lepers, and prostitutes. Who are we not to allow the love of Yeshua to shine through us in these days?

Matthew 25:40 says, “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’”

By assisting and partnering with those that are helping to pull the despairing from the streets of Tel Aviv, as well as throughout the land of Israel, Christian Friends of Israel is able to show how Christians in the nations desire to continue showing love and support to ALL of Israel.

Thank you for continuing to pray for, support and reach out to the nation of Israel with the love of our Lord! I have to believe that reaching out to those who some might deem unworthy, must truly put a smile on our Heavenly Father’s face.
