Give the Greatest Gift | The Gift of Love
“When I was 3, my parents got divorced… They were never truly parents. They didn’t know anything about parenting… and they were both mentally ill. It just got harder when I grew up. I didn’t understand a lot of the things that were happening…
“I wasn’t really sure there was a God, but every night I remember that I cried and asked for Him to get [me] out somehow.”—Sapir, a resident of the Curt Landry Ministries Girls’ Safe House
Sapir never chose to be in this place of confusion and hopelessness. She deserved an opportunity to experience God’s love. Imagine yourself as a teenage girl wondering whose home you could go to in order to find the love and acceptance you so desperately needed and longed for.
Sapir was in need of a stable place to go. She was searching for safety and acceptance. The problem was there was no place available. With every option she tried, from a friend to a family member, she was met with a closed door. This left her feeling hopeless.
Ultimately, these messages planted seeds of rejection and abandonment into her life. The result was Sapir feeling as though all of these circumstances she was born into were her fault.
Sapir’s Cries Were Heard. God Used You to Answer Her Prayer.
Sapir’s cries were heard, and God provided a way for her to experience the gift of love. Through Curt Landry Ministries Girls’ Safe House sponsorships, you have provided a place for Sapir, and so many other young women, to seek refuge and acceptance.
As a result, young women such as Sapir now have access to…
- A home
- A family
- Guidance and mentorship
Sapir was finally able to experience God’s gift of love in very real way.
“And then I went to [the Girls’ Safe House]… when I was in high school. [At first] I was depressed… I felt I was a bad… person… I got authorized to be here a few years ago. And [now], without being cliché… it really changed my life.”—Sapir

The Gift of Love Gives Meaning to Life
Because of the love you’ve sown into the Curt Landry Ministries Girls’ Safe House program, these young women now understand that there is meaning to life. The seeds of rejection that were once deeply planted into their souls are being dug up and replaced with seeds of acceptance and love. They are beginning to understand that God has given them purpose. The love of the Father is manifested in their lives.
“Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!…”—1 John 3:1
These Young Women Give the Gift of Love to Others
These women have learned how to receive love because they’ve been shown what it looks like through your generous hearts. But it doesn’t stop there.
They also are able to truly experience what it’s like to give love and to see the world differently because you’ve opened their eyes to the possibilities.
You’ve shown them that they have self-worth and value. In fact, Sapir shared that she wants to help other young girls, like herself, find a place such as Curt Landry Ministries Girls’ Safe House because she’s experienced the difference it’s made.
Now, you can help young women in Israel begin to find their place in God’s Kingdom. You can give them access to what they need to give… the gift of love to others.

The 10,000-12,000 Children in Israeli Foster Care
There are 10,000-12,000 children in the Israeli foster care system. Most of these children come from broken homes with backgrounds of sexual abuse, violence, and neglect. When these foster children turn 18 years old, the Israeli government ends their support, leaving most of these young people to fend for themselves—out in the world without the guidance and support of loving and caring individuals.
Let us come into agreement that these women need the resources and courage to renounce the enemy’s lies telling them that they have been rejected and abandoned.
They need a loving hand so that they can experience the true love of the Father… and, in turn, show others the gift of love.
Curt Landry Ministries Girls’ Safe House sponsorships offer a supportive and loving foundation for these young women. Currently, we have an apartment in Jerusalem and there is still a need for more.
Because of your generous heart, these young women who live in the Curt Landry Ministries Girls’ Safe House receive…
- The support they need to overcome their past through counseling
- The job training necessary to find and keep employment and contribute to society
- The physical nourishment and care they need so they can focus on thriving rather than surviving
- A sense of family as they develop relationships with those who are living there, and the house parents who can guide them
- The love of the Father
Let us come together in agreement so that these women will be able to rest in the gift of love, according to Zephaniah 3:17…
“The Lord your God in your midst, the Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”
