CHRISTIANS CARE INTERNATIONAL

See I will beckon to the nations, I will lift up my banner to the peoples; they will bring your sons in their arms

and carry your daughters on their shoulders. 

Isaiah 49:22

Christians Care International (CCI)has always been defined by a promise which God gave to the Jewish people in the book of Isaiah that He would call upon the Gentile nations to raise them up and bring them back home to Israel.

To answer that calling, CCI is bringing Christians from around the world together to gather, bless and bring our suffering Jewish brothers and sisters home to Israel through our life-saving programs. By being a direct service provider to Jewish communities in the Former Soviet Union, we are also able to break down thousands of years of misunderstanding that has occurred with our brothers and sisters and replace it with love, understanding and mutual respect.  CCI seeks to raise up individuals out of poverty and despair and then secondly, the rising up of that individual to Israel.

To date, we have helped over 93,000 of our brothers and sisters return home to Israel, healthy and whole. We have over 1,700 abused and neglected Jewish orphans and underprivileged children under our care in our cutting edge Children’s Rehabilitation Programs. And, we are providing life-saving humanitarian aid and emergency medical care to suffering Holocaust Survivors, elderly Jewish people, individuals and families.  Please pray for CCI and their work.

REBUILD

BE PART OF THE SOLUTION

In Nehemiah we see a group of people who in a time of difficulty, committed to the task and each other with vision and hope!

trusting God to give them success.

Yet there were those who complained & criticised, adding to the trouble and doing nothing to help!  But looking at the situation, seeing the hurdles, the difficulties, the inconveniences and seeking to do something to make a difference takes guts, determination and effort.

It’s so much easier to be a victim who sees and highlights the problems! commenting in a way that adds to the problem!  But that’s not what God is looking for!  That’s not what he has called us to live for and that’s not what he created us for!

Consider your ways, your words and your actions?  And ask are your words and actions part of the solution or adding to the problem?  Let’s be a people that stand with hope and trust in Almighty God! remembering his greatness, asking for his strength and knowing his joy.  Let’s be a people who seek out solutions!  Nehemiah calls us to believe that God will give us success!

SHOEBOX APPEAL 2020

Shoebox Packing—Traditional & Online

For many years we have got involved with the shoebox appeal and this year is no different.  However due to the lockdown restrictions, it will be a bit different this year.  At the moment Samaritans purse are saying you can pack it in the traditional way or online.  However, in light of the present increase in local lockdowns we may find that there will be problems with getting the boxes to the collection points. Therefore, we would encourage you to pack a box online earlier rather than later to ensure that your shoebox has the best chance of getting to a child this year!  You can organise a box online for the cost of £20 by visiting

 

 www.shoeboxonline.org.uk

 

You can even include a note and photo to personalise your gift.

With careful modifications to shoebox packing we can ensure that children around the world are still blessed with great joy and the Good News of Jesus Christ.

HARVEST 2020

WE ARE GOING TO CELEBRATE HARVEST

11AM SUNDAY 4TH OCTOBER 2020

WE WILL ORGANISE A HARVEST TABLE AS A VISUAL CELEBRATION.

Every year we have taken the opportunity to raise the profile of foodbank as a way of us sharing what we have with those who are in need! However this year things are very different.  So can we encourage you to give via the supermarkets. Most supermarkets have a foodbank drop off that you can use while shopping.  Pick upan extra few things and drop them in the donation point on your way out.

“Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.”


NEHEMIAH 4:14 [NIV]
