Preparing for Israel
We're finishing up our final preparations for this year's Hesed Project Israel service trip.
Once we're on the ground in Israel, we'll post periodic updates and photos. Check back often or get update notifications using the subscribe options on this page.
We'll be sharing our experiences online with you, our friends and family, to not only bring you along on the journey with us, but to also solicit your ongoing prayer and support. Most of us on this trip have been preparing mentally and spiritually for what will be a life-changing time of service with our international community. So please pray that we would be diligent in our preparations and we would all be ready to learn what God has to teach us!
What is the Hesed Project?
The Hesed Project is an exciting, Christian adult-volunteer program to Israel, hosted by The Friends of Israel. Participants in The Hesed Project will work alongside Israelis doing manual labor and giving of their time, effort, and resources to help us serve the people of Israel practically.
What will we be doing?
Primarily we will be assigned tasks that require working with our hands. This might involve cleaning equipment or facilities, painting furniture or a room, organizing storage areas, cleaning air conditioning, as well as site maintenance, food prep and/or dishes, office work, security, landscaping and gardening (weeding and trimming, etc.), laundry service – or a host of other tasks. We will work with, and at the direction of, Israelis – doing whatever they may assign.
