Olim Fund of the Galilee
July 2004 Report

July 2004

Shalom from Tiberias

I again had the honor of chairing this month's Board of Advisors meeting at which we distributed $12,244.00 to 17 different families, all of whom were in pressing, survival level situations. What a thrill it is to see the Olim Fund of Israel growing each month along with a parallel and ever increasing number of needs among our Olim families.

I am delighted to report that our Christian Origins DVD teaching is being sold in increasing numbers which is helping the Olim Fund to grow, as all profits are being funneled to us as yet another means to bless the returning remnant. Please check out our web site at www.olimpublications.com for more information.

This month, we saw several families on the edge of financial chaos saved from eviction notices as your gifts ministered life from depressing circumstances. In another case a young girl with acute scoliosis was provided with a corset to enable her to walk even in her limited capacity. The Lord also gave us the opportunity to help an emotionally and physically believed abused woman in her struggle to get free from her ordeal.

All in all it is difficult to express in words our thanks and gratitude for your giving hearts towards these disadvantaged Jewish immigrant families. We truly bless you and encourage you to tell others what wonderful things are resulting from your generous giving.

We are confident in the Lord's promise toward you; to bless you who bless Israel.

In the love of Yeshua,

Bob Fischer
