Pastor John Hagee led hundreds of followers and members of Christians United for Israel (CUFI) to Israel to show their political support and bless Israel. As part of the activities, CUFI members and other supporters gathered in central Jerusalem for a march and solidarity rally on the steps of Jerusalem’s city hall.
During the gathering before the march, participants got an up-close look at one of seven ambulances that John Hagee Ministries donated to Magen David Adom, Israel’s EMS and first-responder organization and Israel’s national blood bank. Together, these ambulances have treated more than 11,000 people, including people hurt in a terrorist attack launched from Sinai this past summer, victims of numerous car accidents and heart attacks, and a woman who delivered her baby son en route to the hospital last month.
“As much as it’s heartwarming when Christians come to Israel to show their unwavering support, it’s essential that we make it a point to say thank you,” says Arnold Gerson, CEO of the 72-year-old American Friends of Magen David Adom (AFMDA). “It was our privilege to bring one of the Hagee Ministry ambulances for all to see and share the pride we have. We’re grateful for Pastor Hagee’s ongoing support to help save lives in Israel, and for the partnership and generosity of millions of Christians throughout the U.S.”
In response to the ongoing and overwhelming support for AFMDA from Christians across the U.S., last year the organization launched a new program, Heart to Heart, as a grass-roots way for Americans of all backgrounds to support and bless Israel, helping to save lives through an innovative virtual blood donation program.
“We invite all those who love Israel and wish to fulfill the biblical mandate to bless Israel to join Heart to Heart, to help increase and protect Israel’s blood supply,” says Heart to Heart Director Jonathan Feldstein. “We hope that churches, organizations and other ministries will continue to become Heart to Heart partners.”
