At the Dugit Distribution Center, located in downtown Tel Aviv, we are continually looking for ways to impact and improve the physical and spiritual conditions of the needy and homeless of Tel Aviv.
On March 8th, the world celebrated Women’s Day and took time out to honor women for their achievements and contributions to society. There are many women in Tel – Aviv that would not typically get to be a part of this special day because of their socioeconomic status. Here at Dugit, we decided that we wanted to do something to honor these women. Dennis and Nadia who manage the Dugit Distribution Center ran with this vision and organized a fantastic event.
We secured a ballroom for the evening and invited believing, professional musicians to perform and share their testimonies. We also had a woman Pastor attend and give her testimony. She was a shining example of how much God can do with someone who fully commits their life to Him. She truly touched the hearts of all who were present. After the testimonies had been shared, more than half of the group came to the front and asked for prayer from the Dugit staff. Some were prayers for health, others for blessings, and some to feel God’s love in their lives.
After this time of fellowship and ministry, we invited the ladies to a fabulous buffet dinner. As they sat and enjoyed the meal, the sound of joy and laughter could be heard throughout the hall. You could see on their faces that they were relaxed and enjoyed their time. It was a welcomed break from the reality of the struggle of living in Israel today.
The response to this evening was outstanding, and all the glory goes to God for making this happen! Our desire was to convey to these particular women who live in conditions far below the average standard of life that Yeshua loves them as a Father loves his child. As the evening came to a close, one after another the ladies came to us and thanked us with tears in their eyes for the honor and love they had felt.
It is so amazing to see how much the love of God can make a difference in the lives of these precious people! Please continue to pray with us for their salvation as well as their physical needs.
