Project 2 - Kev & Jen Cable, Jaffa, Israel - CMS
Many of you will know Jen, who grew up in Bishop Hannington . Kevin, a Jewish believer in Jesus, was formerly a long serving police officer, and for 14 years a priest in the Church of England in Bournemouth.
As part of our mission to increase and strengthen the Christian presence in Jaffa, alongside re-opening the Anglican Church of St Peter and building a congregation, we are working with Aviv Ministries in central Tel Aviv, who provide help for those caught in drug addiction, prostitution and the homeless. Our congregation offer help when possible, visiting the shelter to help in the soup kitchen and talk with the people using these services. Many of them are without any assistance at all, living on the streets on the margins of society, where they often receive little help and are shunned by many. We believe that sharing our faith with actions is a way to draw alongside these people and share the love of Christ, by loving our neighbour through practical support, prayer, and simple human company. Many of them come to know the Lord through the love and care they receive.
We are really grateful for your continued provision and prayers for us and thank you for supporting us as part of your Christmas Appeal. This year we would like to raise money for some new kitchen equipment at the Aviv Ministry to make catering for large numbers easier. High Inflation here also means that food is very expensive, sometimes twice the price of products in the UK, and we would, if possible, also like to raise some funding for food, of which the ministry is in desperate need. Please help our congregation, along with our partners at Aviv Ministries, to meet the needs of those who have no one else to help this Christmas.
