MY OLIVE TREE
In the 1950s, David Ben-Gurion had a vision to turn the Negev Desert from a desert into an oasis. Our commitment to the Israeli government is to fulfill this dream and Biblical prophecies of restoration and plant 1 million olive trees…
…1 million olive trees and fruitful vineyards throughout the Negev. Olive trees planted on IDF bases, in the King’s Valley and throughout the barren deserts of Southern Israel; vineyards that will produce grape juice exported throughout the world.
One Million Olive Trees
Why one million?
That is the number that experts decided was needed to make a significant impact on the region’s economy. One of our goals has always been to create jobs for Israeli citizens, and we believe that we can make that happen by bringing agriculture to what many would describe as a barren wasteland, but as we know from Isaiah will one day be green and flourishing!
The King’s Valley
Historically, the King’s Valley was a private garden for the kings of Israel. Prophetically, the King’s Valley is the location at the foot of the Mount of Olives where we believe that Messiah will come, walking through the valley up to the very gates of Jerusalem!
We are partnering with the Jerusalem Parks Authority to plant mature olive trees in this strategic location, creating a garden of peace and reconciliation in the heart of Jerusalem.
Our Peace Grove is located on the main Israeli Army base headquarters for the Gaza Strip. This is the location where one of the troops discovered an enemy tunnel running directly under the base! We believe that by planting this olive grove over this tumultuous location we are making a statement of peace and solidarity with the nation of Israel.
Grapevines in the Negev
Like our One Million Olive Trees in the Negev project, our vineyards are meant to provide much needed employment. Each vine creates an opportunity for planting, growing, harvesting, selling, shipping, labeling, distribution, etc...
Why We Need YOUR Help...
One million trees, peace groves, vineyards—daunting tasks. Tasks we promised the leaders and the people of Israel that we could complete.
We can’t let them down!
Even a small contribution brings us closer to providing for the people of Israel, and closer to fulfilling the biblical prophecy that:
“I will bring back the captives of My people Israel; They shall build the waste cities and inhabit them; They shall plant vineyards and drink wine from them; They shall also make gardens and eat fruit from them.”—Amos 9:14
NOTE: All Contributions are Not Tax Deductible.
