If you have not yet visited Israel, it is a beautiful place to visit and see. Some may not be aware, but Tel-Aviv is a city of considerable size. Reportedly, “Tel Aviv has the third-largest economy of any city in the Middle East… and has the 31st highest cost of living in the world.” Over 1 million people travel there to visit annually. In this bustling city, Avi Mizrachi, with Dugit Ministries is sharing the love of Jesus Christ, one cup of coffee at a time.
Initially starting as a small Bible study with a handful of people, it has now grown to the fellowship gathering that we see today. “It is a Hebrew speaking, local congregation…”, Avi shares. “It is wonderful to see that Jewish people are responding to the Good News.” Not only is the Gospel being shared, but homeless and needy are having their needs met. The Agape Distribution Center was opened to help meet the needs of these people. “Today, we feed about 80-100 families every month.”
After a trip to Korea, speaking about Israel, Mizrachi shares how the Lord began to burden his heart, “The Lord has really put in my heart that I need to go and look for a place and build him an altar…of prayer and worship, for breakthrough in this city of Tel-Aviv Jaffa.” The prayer tower was then born, which houses a prayer room on the top 12th floor that looks out over all of Tel-Aviv.
Avi shares the critical times that we are facing and how to pray for what God is doing in Tel-Aviv. “I believe this is the harvest time. This is harvest time, and we need, more than ever, for people to pray for us, for laborers, for people to stand with us in such a time as this.”
Amidst tragedy that has taken place in Tel-Aviv, we want to encourage you with all the great work that is being done in the heart of this city. The Gospel is being shared through this ministry, and people are coming to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Pray for Avi and his ministry and pray for Israel. We want to hear from you!
