Years of Separation- Together in a Day!

After years of waiting and longing to be with family, the first group of Ethiopian Jews this year made Aliyah to Israel and reunited with their family members! Some have waited for almost 40 years, and some have never met their family, but on one special day they were finally able to embrace one another here in the land of Israel.

Watch this video that will move your heart as you see the smiles, hugs, kisses, rejoicing, and relief that was expressed on Monday evening as families finally came together. We invite you to rejoice in what God has done, and partner with Him in bringing the Jewish people home to Israel! 

Thank you for impacting Israel with us!

As we close this year of 2018, we look back with grateful hearts to everything God accomplished! 

The Christian Embassy has answered the call of God to comfort and support His people, and you have been our most important partner. The ICEJ could not have done all of these amazing works and services for God and His people without you! We want to say thank you for all of your prayers, support, and donations to impact many lives here in the land of Israel and around the world!

As 2018 draws to a close, we conclude this video series with a full view of how your support has impacted the nation of Israel. Thank you for partnering with us, and we are look forward to what God will continue to do through our partnership in 2019!

A Miracle Filled Christmas

The Christmas season is marked by an incredible miracle: The Son of God's arrival to earth as an infant. But a related, and often-overlooked, miracle is the conception and birth of John the Baptist to the elderly Elizabeth and her husband, Zechariah (Luke 1:5-25).

Just as God did not overlook Elizabeth's years of barrenness, He has not overlooked your struggles, but has heard your every prayer and sees the deepest desires of your heart.

In this special Christmas greeting, Dr. Juergen Buehler, ICEJ President, challenges us to remember all of God's promises with renewed hope and confidence in His faithfulness. As you watch this video, remember that nothing is impossible with our loving, all-powerful God!

The ICEJ wishes you a Merry, miracle filled Christmas!

The Best Is Yet To Come!

"See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland." Isaiah 43:19

Our God is the One who creates streams in the desert, order from chaos, beauty from ashes; He is the God of new beginnings.

No matter what desert or wilderness you have gone through this past year, you can trust the Lord to fill you a fresh with His streams of living water! 

Now is the time to seek the Lord and His will in prayer. Join us as we begin 2019 with prayer and fasting every wednesday for the month of January.

We invite you to join us in prayer for the peace of Israel through our prayer initiatives, Isaiah 62 and the PrayerWave. Sign up today: 

1. Isaiah 62 Prayer Initiative 

2. PrayerWave Prayer Initiative

Watch this New Year's greeting from ICEJ's President Jürgen Bühler, and get excited because the best is yet to come!

Happy New Year from your ICEJ family!

Love is the Reason Behind the Season!

John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

Watch this video from the ICEJ headquarters in Jerusalem, as Mojmir Kallus, Vice President of International Affairs, speaks of God's love and faithfulness to the people of Israel.

We pray God's great love and faithfulness will be powerfully demonstrated in your life this Christmas season! 

Let us rejoice together this Christmas and praise God for His unfailing love and faithfulness!

Great Joy in Jesus

Luke 2: 8-12 - "And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.'"

As we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, we encourage you to reflect on the glorious joy we have in Jesus!

In this video, VP and Senior Spokesman David Parsons sends greetings from Shepherd's Field. It was in these hills between Jerusalem and Bethlehem, that the angel of the Lord delivered to the shepherds the joyful news of the birth of our Messiah, as recorded in Luke 2. 

As you reflect on the good news of Jesus, may your heart be filled with an unspeakable joy!

Peace and GREAT JOY to you from Jerusalem!

Prophecy Fulfilled

The ICEJ continues working to bring God's people home from the four corners of the Earth, and we want to say thank you to each of you who have generously given to seeing the word of God being fulfilled. 

Through our Aliyah assistance, ICEJ is able to help reunite families and provide a fresh start for new immigrants. We are privileged to have this special opportunity to not only help fulfill Biblical prophecy but also to be directly involved in creating a lasting, positive change in the lives of these people. Thank you for partnering with us as we continue to impact and bless the Jewish people!

Healing the Past

The deep wounds of the past of the Holocaust weigh heavily upon survivors, so the ICEJ has stepped into to shine the love of God to Holocaust Survivors here in Israel to help them enjoy their present. Through the love and support of Christians like you, elderly Holocaust survivors are being taken care of through our Haifa Home for Holocaust Survivors.

This home is not just buildings, it's a loving community where we all have become family. Thankfully our family is growing and the elderly survivors need more care, so we are expanding the Haifa Home.

Join us in continuing to support these survivors with God's love that heals their past and with buildings that provide them with a home to enjoy their present. 

Prince of Peace

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever." (Isaiah 9:6-7)

The prophet Isaiah wrote about Jesus, who would be called 'The Prince of Peace', who will establish His Kingdom and bring “Peace on Earth!” In fact, it will be peace with NO END!

So, whatever trial and difficulty is happening in your life in this season, may the Prince of Peace keep you and your family in HIS perfect peace, as you place your trust in him and his promises!

Shalom from Jerusalem!

New Group of Bomb Shelters Delivered

ICEJ recently had the privilege of delivering a group of new bomb shelters to the Gaza Border. Despite the challenges faced in these areas of Israel, locals continue to thrive in their lives, thanks to your generosity!

Wednesday, October 17, at around 3.30 AM, a rocket slammed into a first-story bedroom in a family home in Beersheba. The Iron Dome rocket-defense system did not activate in this instance. The cause for the failure is still under investigation, but the incident proves the life-saving importance of being able to reach adequate bomb shelters in time. No one was seriously injured by the rocket, but had the family mother not reacted to the alarm siren and gotten her three children to safety, disaster would have struck. 

Watch this video about the impact that you and many Christians around the world are having on Israelis in crisis. Listen to Dr. Jürgen Bühler explain the importance of bomb shelters for Israel's border communities as the ICEJ's latest bomb shelter is installed next to a youth sports center, and hear the gratitude expressed by a local Israeli.

Please continue to support these efforts. Join us in continuing to show God’s love to the Jewish people by helping them build bomb shelters that protect their lives and give them the sense of security they need to endure!
