Sharing the love of Christ with elderly Jews in Ukraine.The crisis and war have increased the price for food and groceries, so most retired people cannot afford quality living on their small pension. Many of them are too old and have reduced mobility, they need others to take care of them. This is an opportunity for you to practically show the love of Christ to the elderly Jewish people of Ukraine. It’s an amazing option to be a real blessing for the Jews who desperately need to be taken care of. Serving Jewish people is a great privilege as they are God’s chosen people, and you’re blessed for being a blessing to them.

You’ll be visiting with elderly Jewish people in their homes or an old age home. You will be able to share your faith with them through an interpreter. If so led you can also pray with and for them. You’ll also have the opportunity to participate in a local Jewish messianic fellowship Sabbath meeting. It’s a great opportunity to affect their lives and show the true and genuine love of Jesus Christ.

If you have a heart for Israel and want to make an impact in Jewish people’s lives, this mission trip is for you. You need to be open to any sort of practical work as you serve elderly Jews in their homes, and also to be as flexible as possible. Many Jewish people live in Ukraine, and many of them are in great need of love, care and attention.If you have a passion for Jewish people, this opportunity is definitely for you!
