Christians have long had a close relationship with Israel. Recently, a Christian ministry decided to help the Israeli people in a tangible way by donating three new ambulances to Israel’s emergency personnel.
According to CBN News, the ambulances were given to Israel by Jesus Ministries. They will be useful for bringing swift care to those injured in the increasing number of terror attack in Israel. They will also be useful in providing swift transportation for expectant mothers, elderly people, and those with disabilities.
"Each one of these vehicles is providing services to hundreds and thousands of people every year. By that we can deliver babies safely on route to the hospitals. We can resituate elderly people. We can support people with disabilities…and then evacuate them in very good medical conditions and supervision to the hospitals," Yonatan Yagodovsky explained to CBN News.
Ann Ayalon, wife of former Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon, said that the gift of the ambulances reminds Israelis that they are not alone:
“The ambulances are an important part of showing to the Israeli people the Christian support and love for Israel. This is one of the most important aspects of the ambulances. It shows to the Israeli people, who often feel very alone, that we are not alone. That God has brought these Christian people to support us and to lift us up. And this does that,” she said.
