Can you believe that summer is already upon us? We are welcoming sunny days and warm summer nights, and with the summer season comes the Memorial Day holiday weekend. For most of us, this means a long weekend of friends, family, and barbeque. But it is also a weekend where we honor the memory of friends and family who have gone before us.
It is a weekend where we honor their sacrifice.
In our own family, we have experienced many passings over the last few years; it has been a difficult and painful season. Loss is never easy—even when we know that one day we will be reunited!
Some families have a Memorial Day tradition of taking flowers to a loved one’s graveside or honoring their memory by contributing to their favorite charity.
This year I would like to invite you to plant an olive tree in the land of Israel in memory and honor of someone you love.
Think how it would bless your mother or your grandmother to know that she has a tree in her name in the land of Israel—living and bearing fruit for generations. Flowers will fade, but your tree will live on.
Maybe your father or grandfather did not have an opportunity to express his love for Israel in a tangible way. You can do it on their behalf and allow their legacy to take root in the Holy Land!
This Memorial Day I would like to give you an opportunity to plant an olive tree in Israel to honor their memory, their sacrifice, and their love. With this special limited time offer you will receive a certificate to honor your sponsorship and a sterling silver pendant to remind you of your family’s commitment to Israel.
This year, give a gift that makes a difference and honors the memory of those who have gone before—a gift to last from generation to generation.
Our mission is to create a partnership between the Evangelical community and the nation of Israel; this partnership will produce employment, income, and revenue for humanitarian aid projects in Israel. We envision the planting of one-million olive trees over the next seven years. This relationship was prophesied in the Bible centuries ago, that the foreigners and strangers (those not of Jewish descent) would help rebuild the walls of Israel and cause the desert to bloom (Isa 35:1). Among other things, this reforestation is an environmental blessing for the entire region. May all who participate in this project be blessed body, soul and spirit; it is time for you to take root in Israel!
