Here comes the Harvest!

The Grapes are Ripening

The grapes in the Land are nearing perfection, and we are thrilled with the anticipation of what the G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob wants to accomplish through this year’s harvest!

You have performed Your words, For You are righteous.Nehemiah 9:8b

How can YOU help?
Share in this work!

There are still some harvesters who are awaiting financial provision to join us for this year! These folks have their applications approved and their passports ready. They have stepped out in faith and made themselves available, trusting that the Father would provide for them to participate with His work.

If your heart is with us, but you can’t go with us physically this year, please consider reaching out to supply for those who have put their lives on hold to help accomplish this task, but lack the funding. This enormous work of restoration has a place for everyone. Some are assigned to the front lines of the vineyard, and some to prayer and financial backup. Each person depends on the others to fulfill their roles.

. . . the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. – Ephesians 4:16

The costs for harvesters include:
Airfare —————————————- $1200 per person
Housing, food, transportation ————– $300/week per person
Full sponsorship for 1 person, for 3 weeks
(covering all of the above) —————- $2200

If you are being called to help send the hands for this year’s work of the Harvest, please click here to donate via Paypal, or send a donation through the mail.

Whether or not you can participate financially, we covet your prayers for the season ahead.

Thank you, and we look forward to updating you from the vineyards SOON!!


Fall 2012 – Harvest Trip (Hayovel)

Carlos Mendoza Bridges, News Leave a comment   , , , , , , , , , ,

It is not too late to join an incredible journey to Israel, the covenant land of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. This is an opportunity for God-fearers from the nations to come together and serve independent Jewish farmers in the heartland of Israel – harvesting vineyards in the mountains of Samaria and Judea! (There is also a pruning trip in the spring.) Watch the Bible come to life, and be a part of the prophetic restoration of God’s chosen people to their covenant land! Come to bless and be blessed! If you cannot make the trip yourself, but would like to sponsor a harvester, please go to buildingbridgesint.org and make a donation with a comment that your donation is to support HaYovel.

Who should come?

HaYovel is all about family order and proper authority. Just as much as we need physically strong workers, we also need elders for wisdom and grounding and homemakers to keep things running smoothly. We encourage families to come together if possible.

What should I expect?

Come expecting to be challenged and inspired! Flexibility and a heart to humbly serve are prerequisites. You will live in close community with other volunteers. In addition to the awesome privilege of working in the soil of Israel, on days we are not working in the vineyards or resting you will get to tour. Most tours focus on Biblical sites related to God’s covenants and hearing from Israelis who have devoted their lives to the restoration of the land.
