Jerusalem Border Police Officer Gives up His Meal for a Mother and Baby


While Israeli police defend their people from the many recent terror attacks, the media hasn’t shown much support for the men and women who protect so many victims of terror. However, in a letter to The Fellowship, one Jerusalem Border Police officer, Lial, shows his desire for peace and tolerance by helping a family in need.

Between the tension, chaos, war, killing, and bloodshed in the streets every day, there is also an opportunity for humanity and giving.This is the time when you must put everything aside, no matter who you are or your race, religion, or gender.

Your heart cannot be closed to the mother who sits on the floor with her baby and can't get through another day.

So I gave up my hot meal for the day in order to give it to them.

Here's hoping we'll know days of peace.

Help the Unseen

You can heed the biblical mandate “not to turn away from your own flesh and blood” (Isaiah 58:7) and provide a needy elderly Jew, like Olga, with food, heating fuel, warm clothes, and blankets this winter. Every day is important as the harsh cold winds descend upon the former Soviet Union. Please prayerfully consider giving your best and most generous gift to The Fellowship today for this lifesaving work.
