“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: ‘May they prosper who love you. Peace be within your walls, prosperity within your palaces.’ For the sake of my brethren and companions, I will now say, ‘Peace be within you.’ Because of the house of the Lord our God I will seek your good.”—Psalm 122:6-9
As you prepare this year to make your charitable donations, we at My Olive Tree pray that you will consider us as one of your recipients.
We realize that we have asked for your financial support in the past, and that we oftentimes invite people to donate to our cause.
Still, we so believe in the work that we are doing in Israel that we have to ask… We’re compelled to ask!
Why is that?
Here’s the reason… When you sow a seed into My Olive Tree, you are not only providing financial support to a worthy cause. No! It’s so much more than that!
When you sow a seed, you are literally blessing the nation of Israel—the apple of God’s eye.
Not only are you blessing Jewish people, but you’re actually partnering with us to fulfill biblical prophecy. No, we’re not joking!
Take our King’s Valley Seven Species project for example…
We are literally partnering with the City of Jerusalem to restore the seven species of Israel.
“For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, that flow out of valleys and hills; a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey.”—Deuteronomy 8:7-8
It gets better!
This restoration is taking place in the King’s Valley! Otherwise known as, the Kidron Valley—located between the Temple Mount and the Mount of Olives.
You might being saying, “So what’s the big deal?”
This is the very location that Messiah is said to return to…
“And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, Making a very large valley; Half of the mountain shall move toward the north and half of it toward the south.”—Zechariah 14:4
Can you believe it? Yeshua, our Savior, will walk right past the physical seeds you have sown in preparation for His return.
For every tree you plant, you provide jobs for Israeli citizens. If we told you how much work it takes to plant, irrigate, and care for young olive trees (planted in a desert) you might be shocked!
Our unique partnership with the Israeli Defense Force allows us to procure water for irrigating your trees.
You’d think that every tree planting organization has this partnership, but that’s just not the case. Your trees are cared for. Your trees reap abundant harvests.
All of the proceeds from those sales are sown into special humanitarian aid projects within the nation of Israel…
- Safe Houses for children in foster care
- Providing food for needy IDF solders’ families
- Supporting Holocaust survivors
- The list goes on and on…
We hope you’ll consider donating to this very worthy cause. We know you may have already given a gift in the past, and for that we are extremely grateful.
But it’s really not about us…
It’s about the faces of the families that light up when they hear that My Olive Tree contributors, like yourself, have paid for their food, provided emergency equipment, fixed broken down amenities, etc.
Won’t you consider donating again this year to this worthy cause? Won’t you bless the nation of Israel—the apple of our Father’s eye?
