The Olive Tree Ranch, under the
supervision of Tents of Mercy, has been conducting discipleship mentoring
projects for the last seven years. This initiative is geared especially to
serve IDF soldiers who have recently completed their mandatory service. It
is a great way for them to "breathe" and heal after their intense years in
the army. For two months we teach them to hear from God and study His Word
while living and working in a rural communal environment.
We recently completed our annual session with four young men participating.
During daily group devotionals we did in-depth studies of the book of
Hebrews and the Gospel of John. In addition each person shared insights
from his personal reading.
Some highlights included us gaining
understanding together regarding the role of the Torah as "teacher"
(Galatians 3:24), trusting Yeshua's judgement as the righteous judge
who sees the heart of every last person (Genesis 18:25, Acts 10:42) and
putting our confidence in Godalone (John 5:44-46).
In addition to their spiritual enrichment, the young men served several
hours a day in harvesting and pruning olive trees as well as in goat
to support the work and vision of Olive Tree Ranch.
