Jesus said, “And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’” Matthew 25:49
The team at Iris Israel has Father God’s heart to love, serve, and help meet the practical needs of the least of these…the people in need that we encounter here in Land of Israel. Here it means helping our Jewish neighbors…e.g. those who are forgotten, alone, or struggling financially. We are looking for and stopping for the ONE the Lord wants to put in front of us, as we go about our daily life. We take time to listen to them, to develop a relationship with them and their family. We learn about their physical, emotional, spiritual, and financial needs, and we help meet those needs, on a case by case basis.
We keep our eyes on Jesus, seeking intimacy with Him first, to receive a fresh in-filling of God’s Word and love daily in our own lives. Then from this place of fullness of His love for us, we extend compassion and help to those around us who are hurting and in need.
People and projects we are currently involved in and are developing:
Service to the poor and needy:
Financial Support to single mothers and children (society’s modern day “widows and orphans”)
Financial support to the elderly who have no family to care for them.
Financial support for young adult program
Friendship and support for lone IDF soldiers while in the army
Helping the homeless
Please stand with us in prayer for each of these projects…and more to come. As well, join us in praying and asking God to continue to show us His will for making Iris Israel a blessing to the people of Israel, motivated solely by the true love and compassion of Jesus for this Land and it’s people, through our team of believers. We pray also for more sold-out lovers of Jesus, with a heart for Israel and the Jewish people, and an awareness of the unique challenges of this nation, to come serve in Israel. We thank God for each of you. We understand that we need each other…Apart from Jesus and from one another we can do nothing!
