Usually, the Fellowship IDF Vehicles travel around Israel from north to south to provide Israel’s guardians with refreshments. And the reminder that Christians and Jews around the world love and support them.

The simple act of providing them with drinks, snacks, and Wi-Fi connection so they can call their family, shows them how much they are loved and supported.

But last week, Israel’s firefighters were the ones that needed our support.

Wildfires in Israel

Last week, we reported on one of the worst wildfires in years to spread in the Holy Land. Many of Israel’s firefighters worked hard to stop the flames. Thousands of men, women, children, and elderly were evacuated. And the blaze threatened their homes and communities.

The Fellowship was on the ground in Israel. We dispatched our IDF Hospitality Vehicle to visit the firefighters and other officials working to extinguish the fires. We delivered snacks, tried to boost morale, and showed them that Fellowship friends stand with these brave firefighters who continue to protect the Holy Land!
