We pray that your interest and understanding of what God is doing in these days, particularly in Israel in light of the Bible, will grow and that you will be able to share this with others.

“There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under heaven”

And after 15 wonderful years, it is time for us to withdraw and make room for others – the next generation – to carry on the work in their own unique way.

From the start of the OTRF, our aim was to build bridges of understanding and support in a spirit of reconciliation between believers, both Jewish and Arab, in Israel, including the Palestinian Areas, and Christians worldwide.

So many have shared this journey. Over the years some of you travelled to Israel with us to meet local believers and hear their stories. And many have supported our work financially.

To all of you, we want to say a huge thank you! You have made it possible for us to encourage those who are helping others. Every pound we have received we have passed on. There are many people living in Israel and the West Bank today who have been helped with health care, with basic necessities of life, help for children and single mothers living in poverty, aid for refugees and the homeless, and help for those addicted to drugs and alcohol.

These people will never be famous in the world’s eyes but in God’s eyes they are His precious people on the ground, doing His work today; fulfilling Biblical prophecy.

"For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by abolishing in his flesh the law with its commandments and regulations."

Ephesians 2:14 - 15

"I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd."

John 10:16

"This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus."

Ephesians 3:6

"He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit."

Ephesians 2:17-18

"His purpose was to create in himself one new man out of the two, thus making peace, and in this one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility."

Ephesians 2:15-16
