Ramla is a small town adjacent to the Biblical city of Lod (Lydda) where the book of Acts has recorded a paralytic by the name of Aeneas being healed (Acts 9:33). Only a few miles away from Israel’s main airport, this city has a mixed population of Jews and Arabs who co-exist with relative tolerance. The city is strategically placed in close proximity to other key cities such as Joppa / TelAviv.
We are so thankful for a generation of fervent believers and disciples of Jesus Christ who are Spirit-filled and ready for the Lord to use them in any way for the Kingdom!
It started in the early 1980s as Pastor Kakish held home meetings for Bible study, traveling back and forth weekly from the West Bank to the city of Ramla, sometimes under perilous conditions because of the ongoing fighting. Today, the believers in Ramla are grateful to have had a building that could accommodate them as a temporary church – a remodeled apartment that once served as a clinic. The facility, however, is too tight to house an appropriate sanctuary and the Sunday school rooms are tiny and would quickly be crowded with restless children in the hot summers.
You can be part of the expansion project of this church – We need your help to provide an adequate facility for worship and discipleship, allowing us to expand our outreach in the city of Ramla!
Ramallah is the “de-facto” capital of the West Bank. Less than 10 miles north of Jerusalem. Many ministers and workers come and go– we’ve been here holding up the message of the gospel for 30 years.
