*Reuben is a Jewish, Ukrainian immigrant who made Aliyah to Israel seventeen years ago. Growing up in a secular environment, Reuben was negatively influenced and fell heavily into drugs. Five years ago, he came to know Yeshua as his Savior and was set free from his addiction. Reuben went through a believing rehabilitation program in central Israel, met and married his wife and began working in a carpentry job. Although he has left his old lifestyle behind, the effects of his past still loomed over him in the form of an exorbitant amount of debt.
Reuben became aware of the work of CBN Israel and reached out for financial help and guidance. Through a series of meetings with the staff, Reuben has become more financially stable. CBN Israel petitioned the help of various organizations who in turn gave donations that entirely cleared his debts! Today, Reuben is the head of the rehabilitation center that lifted him out of his struggles, was trained by CBN Israel in helping others become financially free, and is looking to start an independent business in the carpentry industry.
The staff of CBN Israel have seen great progress in Reuben’s life both in his finances and in his walk with the Lord and believe the Lord will use him to help others walk in freedom.
