Please take a moment to dream with us about a new opportunity for reaching Israel with the Good News of the Messiah, Jesus.
A fantastic opportunity!
With so many thousands of young Israelis flocking to NZ every year, our primary means of reaching out to them is through the ministry of accommodation. One thing we know for sure: Outreach through accommodation WORKS!
By offering free accommodation to Israeli travellers, we’ve had the opportunity to share the love of Messiah with more than 5000 guests! During the tourist season, our facilities are brimming with Israeli travellers, many of whom are responding positively to our resident staff members who are taking every opportunity to introduce our guests to Israel’s Messiah, Yeshua.
To say the least, we at Celebrate Messiah are grateful for God’s blessing on our work. But there is a gaping hole in this ministry, an untapped opportunity nestled deep in the southwest corner of the South Island. Te Anau is the gateway to Fiordland, making it a gathering place for hundreds of thousands of backpackers entering and leaving the nearby tracks. Nearly all of the Israelis visiting NZ will be passing through Te Anau at some point in their journey, making it a strategic bullseye for Jewish evangelism. For the sake of Israel’s salvation, we simply can’t afford to ignore this amazing opportunity. An accommodation facility in this region would exponentially increase our witness of the Gospel among Israeli travellers.
This is why we’re excited about a property for sale in this region that is perfectly suited for a prospective outreach centre. It contains a manager’s residence large enough for resident staff and volunteers and is extremely well fitted with all the necessary facilities, including toilets and showers, laundry room, and communal kitchen, dining room and lounge. Experience teaches us that outreach happens best in the communal areas and on the trails, and this facility has the best of both.
God has already supplied much of what we need to start this next phase of ministry: A decade’s worth of experience and know-how, a pool of qualified volunteers, and even a missionary couple who are trained and ready to oversee the ministry. God has also provided 40% of the needed funds through generous donors, leaving a balance of approximately $600,000 yet to raise.
Will you consider a generous donation to help make this dream come true? In light of God’s heart for the salvation of His people, Israel, and His plan to bless all the families of the earth through the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, I can assure you that you will be making a wise investment in the Plan and the Purposes of God.
