Helping and Standing with Israel’s Physical Guardians
Project David’s Shield reaches out to those who protect Israel.
Who has ever seen such things?
Is a country born in one day?
Is a nation brought forth all at once?
For as soon as Tziyon went into labor,
she brought forth her children.
Israel Defense Forces Mission:
- To defend the existence, territorial integrity and sovereignty of the state of Israel
To protect the inhabitants of Israel and to combat all forms of terrorism which threaten the daily life
CFI and Project David’s Shield aim to stand in solidarity with the stated mission of the IDF. The best armies in the world are the ones that believe in what they are doing so much that they will make any sacrifice to further the cause and accomplish their mission.
We have a responsibility as Christian Friends of Israel, here in Jerusalem, and from the Nations, to let the Israeli soldiers know that we love and support the IDF and to remind them who they are. We strive to remind them that they don’t fight their battles alone, and that the God of Israel is with them. We are able to tell them that they have millions of people around the world who pray for them daily!
Being an Israeli soldier is not easy. The best weapon a soldier has is not his gun, but his will to fight. If a soldier is totally convinced of the righteousness of the cause for which he fights, he will be a much fiercer warrior. Israel is the one nation on earth to whom God has promised a specified piece of real estate. The Gift of the Land of Canaan to Israel was confirmed by God’s Word, command, statute, everlasting covenant, and oath! (Psalm 105: 7-11)
The Army of Israel is fighting on the earthly battleground. Will you take your place on the walls of Jerusalem? (Isaiah 62:1, 6-7) Will you stand in the gap and petition God on behalf of the Land and the people who are called by his name?
CFI and Project David’s Shield would ask that you join with us in our efforts by contributing funds which allow us the privilege and honor to meet with Base Commanders, and their soldiers to understand the needs they have and for the divine opportunity to forge bonds of friendships that can prove eternal.
Your gift to Project David’s Shield will make a soldier feel proud of their service and boost their morale. Your gift of expressing your gratitude to an Israeli soldier shall prove to be an amazing encouragement!
