ICEJ Report

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!

Impacting Israel With Comfort, Security, & Hope!

We are passionate about extending a loving hand to deeply impact both communities and individuals here in Israel! Through bomb shelters, firefighting trailers, caring for the needs of the lonely, and providing life-changing opportunities for those who are struggling, ICEJ fulfills the vision of Isaiah 40:1-2 to comfort God’s people.
