"They were pleased to do it, and indeed they owe it to them. For if the Gentiles have shared in the Jews’ spiritual blessings, they owe it to the Jews to share with them their material blessings." - Romans 15:27 NIV
Years ago, God gave me a desire to help the people of Israel. While attending a Christian retreat in Blue Mountain, Pennsylvania, I heard Sister Gwen Shaw share about how God had spoken to her about bringing Jewish people home from Russia. She said that all the money they were raising for this cause would go directly to help with the Exodus from Russia.
When I shared with some at my church about what I heard at Blue Mountain, they asked to have a monthly offering taken to support this work. This was 25+ years ago, and Liberty Church is still giving to this ministry every month. It has been an honor to be a part of God’s end-time plan for His chosen people.
We are a praying church, built on the pillars of God’s Word, His Love, and yielding to the Holy Spirit. Before giving to Operation Exodus USA, the church was unable to meet its monthly bills. That all changed when we put the needs of Israel before our own church needs. Since we sent the first offering, we have never gone without.
We had planted a seed that would reap an abundant harvest. From that point on, the church thrived financially. We paid off our church mortgage early and purchased more land adjacent to the existing property. God has continued to bless Liberty Church and those who gave to Israel. We are a living testimony that God blesses those who bless Israel.
