How My Olive Tree Is Fulfilling The Prophetic Restoration of Israel One Tree at a Time…
Discover the Biblical Prophecy and Vision behind My Olive Tree’s Work in Israel… and How You Can Impact the World for Generations to Come!
Why Plant Trees in the Desert?
Since May 1, 2008, My Olive Tree has been planting olive trees in Israel. Our ministry’s ultimate vision is to plant 1 million trees over the next 7 years, with the majority of those taking root in the barren, sparsely populated region of the Negev Desert.
While this ancient and vast landscape is full of rich history, including the homeland of Abraham, you might be wondering…
Why plant trees in a desert? Wouldn’t it make more sense to plant them in a place where they could grow more easily?
You’re right. After all, olive trees are not a desert plant. They must have regular watering to thrive.
But… what you might not know is the prophecy behind this very intentional decision to plant olive trees in the Negev Desert of Israel.
We are beginning to witness a restitution of all things as predicted prior to the return of our Lord (Acts 3:21).
Israel has been restored as a nation, with the return of Jews and Jerusalem as its capital… Evangelicals are returning to the Jewish roots of their faith… The King’s Oil has been restored to the Church…
Now, we are planting trees (and vineyards) in the desert to fulfill the prophecies of Israel’s physical restoration described by the prophets, Amos and Isaiah:
“’On that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down, and repair its damages;
I will raise up its ruins, and rebuild it as in the days of old; that they may possess the remnant of Edom,
and all the Gentiles who are called by My name,’ says the Lord who does this thing.
’Behold, the days are coming,’ says the Lord, ‘when the plowman shall overtake the reaper,
and the treader of grapes him who sows seed; the mountains shall drip with sweet wine,
and all the hills shall flow with it. I will bring back the captives of My people Israel;
they shall build the waste cities and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and drink wine from them;
they shall also make gardens and eat fruit from them. I will plant them in their land,
and no longer shall they be pulled up from the land I have given them,’ says the Lord your God.”—Amos 9:11-15
“The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose”—Isaiah 35:1
Just like the Prophets of Old,
We Are Helping Fulfill God’s Prophecy Today!
Centuries ago, the Bible describes how the walls of Israel will be rebuilt and the people will be given back their land (see Amos 9:11-15). Strangers and foreigners not of Jewish descent will be the ones who help this prophecy become reality and cause the desert to bloom and rejoice greatly (see Isaiah 35:1).
This prophecy spoken to us through the Word of God is exactly why we are planting trees in the desert.
We believe He is bringing restoration to Israel economically, environmentally, and spiritually, and we want to help fulfill this prophecy of making the desert blossom and rejoice!
Through the physical act of helping restore Israel’s land and agriculture, we are bridging the gap between Evangelical Christians and Israel in order to be a part of God’s promise to restore, rebuild, and ultimately glorify Him.
Here’s just a few of the ways we are seeing restoration through the planting of olive trees:
- Creating jobs for Israeli immigrants returning to their land…
- Boosting Israel’s economy through bountiful and ongoing harvests…
- Generating revenue for various humanitarian aid projects, such as feeding and caring for underprivileged kids…
- Showing peace and hope to soldiers working in some of the most dangerous and difficult areas along Israel’s border…
- Producing abundant crops, oxygen, and rainfall—even in the dry lands of the Negev Desert…
- And much, much more…
But this prophetic restoration is only possible because of our exclusive partnership with Israel.
Partnering with Israel to Make Restoration a Reality in Our Generation
My Olive Tree has been privileged with the unique opportunity to partner directly with the city of Jerusalem and the Israeli Defense Forces. Through this partnership, we are able to access the land and resources necessary to achieve our mission of planting 1 million olive trees in Israel.
In addition, both the Israeli Olive Oil Board and the Israeli Ministry of Agriculture have endorsed our ministry and support this powerful partnership with Israel.
Unlike other organizations, we sponsor the planting of olive trees throughout the Negev Desert and on Israeli army bases, enabling the desert to blossom as prophesied.
One of our most important olive groves is our Peace Grove, which is planted over a terror tunnel. By purposely planting this grove in one of Israel’s most difficult areas, we are giving hope to the soldiers and locals of that area and showing them a physical sign of peace and our solidarity with them as Believers.
But it’s not just the location of our groves that makes them so special…
What Makes Our Olive Groves So Unique?
Unlike other agencies that sponsor tree planting in Israel, our trees are planted to both physically restore the land and to produce a healthy harvest year after year.
We don’t just sponsor a tree then leave it to die in the desert. Thanks to the partnership we have with Israel, our trees benefit from super irrigation and state-of-the-art technology that allows them to grow and thrive as they were designed to do.
Local irrigation companies and nurseries, farmers, immigrant workers, and soldiers are all part of how we are uniquely able to water and care for our trees so that they become healthy and mature, producing plentiful fruit year after year even in the arid lands of the Negev Desert!
My Olive Tree’s groves and the annual harvests they produce have a positive effect on the economy, environment, and spirit of Israel.
By sponsoring a tree, you are giving a living gift that will keep on giving for generations to come.
The Tree You Plant Today Will Continue to Bless the Nation of Israel Year after Year!
Here’s how this simple, yet powerful process works:
Step 1: With a one-time investment, an olive tree will be sponsored in your name, or the name of a family member, friend, or loved one.
Step 2: Your investment covers the expense of planting the tree and caring for it for its first 7 years until it becomes healthy and mature. We have partnered with farmers and locals to carefully tend to your adopted tree so that it will have everything it needs to grow quickly and produce a healthy harvest at around age 3.
Step 3: Shortly after your sponsorship, you will receive a beautiful certificate of authenticity with a corresponding tree so that you can locate it in one of our groves or in our virtual visitor center!
Step 4: At 2-3 years of age, your tree will start producing fruit. The harvesting of this fruit will create new job opportunities for Israeli immigrants, and the olives that are harvested will be processed into the finest quality of olive oil and olive oil products.
Step 5: Each year, revenue from the olive products created from our trees is invested back into the nation of Israel to be used for various humanitarian aid projects.
In this way, your tree will become an ongoing blessing to the nation of Israel!
With Your Living Gift, You’ll Help Feed Hungry Children and Contribute to Projects like These:
- Food for families of Lone Soldiers:
There are thousands of lone soldiers defending Israel who have no immediate family in Israel to support them. They live on very humble monthly wages that make it difficult to buy food, much less pay for bills. This ministry helps reduce living expenses and make sure these brave soldiers and their spouses and children are well fed when they are away from their bases.
- Jerusalem Menorah Project:
Have you ever wanted to demonstrate your love for Yeshua and the Jewish people in a real, tangible way? With this project, you can shine a message of hope, love, and light for all of Israel to see. We are seeking funding for a 10-foot-tall Magen David menorah handcrafted out of steel which will be placed on top of the Mountain of Light. This special statue will represent the “Light of the Gentiles” and demonstrate our solidarity and partnership with Israel during this time of great restoration.
- Safehouse Outreach:
Funding from My Olive Tree helps support “Safe Houses” in Israel, where abused and neglected children can find safety, shelter, and peace. Nearly one-third of Israeli families live at or below the poverty line, resulting in a variety of issues that lead to households filled with fear, frustration, and turmoil. Safe Houses offer a haven for children of these homes where they can find a positive family environment and ensure their basic needs are met.
- Dead Sea Moringa Farms in Togo, Africa:
My Olive Tree not only helps the people of Israel to grow their economy and find sustainable agriculture and income, but we also support projects throughout the Middle East and Africa where needs are high. One of these projects is the planting and cultivating of moringa trees at tree farms in Togo, Africa. This nutrient-rich plant known as the “miracle tree” helps provide people suffering from malnutrition with all the vitamins and minerals they need on a daily basis. Its seeds can also help purify water for drinking in parts of the world where this is a rare commodity.
- Israeli Army Support:
Part of our vision is to bring peace and hope back to the nation of Israel, and this means supporting the soldiers who bravely defend this nation. By supporting the Israeli Army with gifts of shoes, socks, wool items like sweaters and gloves, flashlights, and any other items they need to make their lives more comfortable, we are showing love from the Evangelical community around world to the soldiers of Israel.
- Beot Eyal Rehabilitation Center:
This center in Beit She’an, Israel, gives people from all parts of society and all walks of life the chance to participate in sports, fitness, and rehabilitation activities in the same place. It creates a community where all kinds of people, including those with disabilities and special needs, can do their activities with their families in the same place. My Olive Tree is proud to provide ongoing support to this center.
- Dental Care in Beit She’an, Israel:
We have had the special privilege to reopen a dental clinic that provides dental care to needy children in Beit She’an. Due to the large number of immigrants, it is difficult to provide enough jobs and adequate medical and dental care for the people living in this city. Thanks to this project, volunteers and staff of this dental clinic are able to provide much needed care that improves the quality of life of children in Israel.
- Golani Special Needs School:
We support this school where over 125 special needs students from around the Galilee area attend. Along with educating these wonderful children and helping integrate them into society, this school’s lunch program provides many children with a hot meal that they would otherwise not receive at home.
- Herzog Hospital in Jerusalem, Israel:
Herzog Hospital specializes in caring for the elderly, victims of terror, and children who are in vegetative states. Through this project, we are able to provide relief to the hospital’s limited budget by donating necessary items such as diapers, which restore dignity to people in the care of the hospital.
- Feeding the Needy in Sderot, Israel:
Sderot is an area that has suffered the effects of incoming Qassam rockets from the adjacent Gaza Strip and has been battered by war. Through this project, we are able to feed and care for the population, which is mainly comprised of poor immigrants. In addition, we are able to go to the city and help distribute food to the needy, who are so grateful for these gifts that give them hope for a better future.
These humanitarian aid projects are truly what My Olive Tree is all about. Each year, we use a portion of the proceeds from the sale of our olive products and donate them to projects that directly meet the needs of families and individuals in Israel.
It is not uncommon for an olive tree to live for 600 years. This means that the tree you sponsor today will continue to grow and impact the lives of the underprivileged soldier, the elderly, the handicapped, the needy, and children across the world with each harvest year that passes.
