I will never forget standing in the “Hiding Place” behind the wall in Corrie ten Boom’s bedroom in Holland. More than 800 Jewish people were sheltered in the family home to save them from the Holocaust. The ten Boom family was not rich or powerful or well-known; they simply loved God’s Chosen People and were willing to do whatever they could to help them in a time of urgent need.
Today the nation of Israel and the Jewish people are facing grave danger once again. Evil men who would like nothing better than to finish Hitler’s work of annihilating the Jews are desperately seeking the means to do just that. Today it is our turn to take our stand, just as the ten Boom family did, and be part of God’s miracle of deliverance.
I believe that God brought you and me together “for such a time as this”–to give our time and energy and effort and resources to stand for and defend Israel and the Jewish people. One of the greatest and most important things that the purchase of the Jerusalem World Center makes possible is the Christian Zionist Heritage Center. The story of Christian love is a story that most Jewish people have never heard. We must tell the story, but we can’t do it without you. I urgently need your help today.
I am praying that God will give us 800 Jerusalem Prayer Team members in the next seven days to stand with us in honor of the 800 Jewish people that the ten Booms saved from the Holocaust. I am writing today to ask you to be one of those 800 with your gift to help us make the payment so that the work on the Christian Zionist Heritage Center can continue. So far 150 loving hearts have responded to this need by giving $17,350.
