Seeds of Hope: Guiding the Next Generation to be Rooted in Yeshua

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” — Romans 12:2

We are eager and excited for our upcoming youth camp where we will take 26 Arab and Jewish teenagers from Israel to the south of France for a unique time to grow in their relationship with God, and each other, and encounter Yeshua in ways they’ve never experienced before.   

For us as a community, it is a blessing to guide these young people on this spiritual journey. They are going through a very difficult period, marked by war and uncertainties about the future. During Memorial Day commemorations for our soldiers, many of the youth realized that their turn to serve would come sooner than they thought. We do not live in easy times, with the rise of antisemitism making their future even more uncertain in a world often hostile to their nation and their people.

We see this camp in France as an opportunity for profound spiritual renewal. It will allow these young people to build strong relationships with each other and know and understand God more deeply and intimately.

“All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.” — 2 Corinthians 5:18

Reconciliation is an important part of our vision for this camp. By bringing together Israeli Arab and Jewish teenagers, we aim to foster an environment where barriers are broken down, and mutual understanding is cultivated. Through shared experiences, worship, and heartfelt discussions, we hope to sow seeds of peace and unity, reflecting the heart of Yeshua. In a world often divided by conflict and prejudice, these young people have the unique opportunity to build bridges of friendship and faith, becoming ambassadors of reconciliation who embody the love and hope found in Yeshua.

“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” — Proverbs 22:6

These teens are like young plants that need to be watered and cared for as they grow. They are young and impressionable and we are grateful to serve them, helping them to grow spiritually as they go through a period of challenges and transitions. As a community, we believe we have the responsibility to support and guide them on their journey.

This new generation must be one that clings to the Scriptures as they go about their day. These regular practices will help them connect to God and draw strength and wisdom.

It is important to listen to them and give them this space where they can share their experiences, ask questions, and express their doubts without fear of judgment.

Often, summer camps, youth conferences, and volunteer activities help and encourage them to practically live out their faith. We see how it impacts their lives and the lives of others. Young people are inspired by the adults around them. As mentors and guides, it is essential to live our faith authentically, showing how it influences our daily lives, decisions, and relationships.

In these times of doubt and difficulty, it is crucial to be present for them, to listen to them, to reassure them, and to guide them to appropriate resources. Constant support strengthens their confidence in themselves and their faith. Each young person is on a unique journey. Each has a crucial call to serve God and grow in their faith. 

Pray for us as we head out on this adventure to France that it will be an unforgettable experience for the teenagers and that they will be a generation who stands firm in their faith, constantly growing and rooted in Messiah the only hope. For those who would like to sow into the lives of the next generation in Israel, you can do so by giving here.
