BACKGROUND – LETTER FROM EITAN:
Like you we long to restore the testimony of Yeshua throughout the earth by his Spirit, and here in the Galilee where we believe that there’s an opportunity to fulfill his great prayer in John 17 – …”that they may be one.”
In a thrilling piece of timing, a practical vision is arising of coming together as one family in the Messiah here in the Galilee where it all started.
For the past 15 years it has been my great privilege to lead national “Harvest” teen events. In that time we have used one secular facility after another with none providing a consistent venue to host our camps. In an “Aha!” moment I realized, “The time has come to establish an excellent village-type facility with housing, playing fields, an “extreme” park, well equipped meeting hall and much more?” After receiving unanimously enthusiastic responses from national Messianic leaders, we began searching for the land to establish such a center.
Several properties are very promising, including a neglected vacation village overlooking the Sea of Galilee. We plan to create a spacious environment conducive to raising up the youth of our nation and serving the growing needs of the Jewish and Arab congregations in the land.
Believers from the nations are passionate about participating in the spiritual awakening prophesied for our people. The olive tree in Romans 11 portrays Jews and Gentiles being fruitful together. By joining hearts with our brothers and sisters from the nations, this same facility will also serve as an organic contact point for hosting international believers’ tours and extended volunteering trips. This is an ideal opportunity for partnership between Christians who love Israel and Yeshua’s Jewish followers who live here in the land.
