We are bringing Covid-18 back to help Israeli’s recover after a traumatic year…
We are relaunching Covid-18 (in Hebrew 18 means life, so we renamed the pandemic). Together, we were able to help many different groups during the first and second wave of Covid-19. Together, we impacted many different groups in Israel.
In March, our partners were struggling to put food on their table because of the pandemic. I could not imagine asking people to give any additional donations at that time but the Lord nudged me differently. I called the team and said, “We are going to continue to be a blessing to the people of Israel during this crisis, and invite our partners to do it with us.”
“COVID-18” was launched that day, and you rose to the challenge beautifully. Why 18? Because 18 in Hebrew is the number for life.
COVID-19 stood for death, but together we gave a testimony of LIFE in the midst of it. You sent in gifts of $18.00—or multiples of 18. During this pandemic, there is power in continuing to give. Just like the widow in the Bible who took care of Elijah during the famine—and God then provided all her needs—He provides for those who give. Many testimonies arose of those who sowed into Israel and found the favor of God on their lives.
