There are many causes we hold near and dear to us at Curt Landry Ministries, but among the most important is our support of the Israeli army. We love and honor all of those who have the courage to stand up and fight on behalf of those who need protection, including American and Israeli soldiers.
Israeli soldiers in particular need our support. The country is nestled amidst a very turbulent part of the world, where there is constantly political turmoil and the risk for war to strike up at any time. Just last year we saw tensions escalate between Israel and Palestinians, with death tolls mounting higher and higher throughout the summer. It is these Israeli soldiers who bravely step forward to protect their country and its people.
It is our goal to provide these Israeli soldiers with many of their most basic needs that might not otherwise be met, during both times of war and peace. Curt Landry Ministries and House of David donates shoes, socks, sweaters, hoods,
gloves, flashlights and anything else they might need. We aim to make their lives a little more comfortable and help them accomplish their duties a little easier.
The importance of high-quality footwear for soldiers cannot be understated. Any soldier who has been sent out on deployment will tell you that you have to take care of your feet. The Israeli army does not include footwear in the budget for combat units, so soldiers are left to provide their own shoes. Unfortunately, they often do not have the money to get themselves good quality shoes and boots that would hold up through the elements and protect their feet.
When we go to Israel and see the faces of the soldiers when they receive these gifts, it just reaffirms the importance of this work. Their gratitude for the assistance is so genuine and inspiring.
We hope to continue to support the Israeli army long into the future to help these soldiers protect their homeland and the idea of a free, independent Israel.
