Ebenezer is first and foremost a faith-based intercessory ministry called to a prophetic task - aliyah. Since Ebenezer - Operation Exodus began in 1991 we can proclaim God's faithfulness over our finances. We have been tested at times but we entered 2010 without debt. He had, once again, allowed us to pay every single bill and we stand in awe at all God has accomplished over the years.
We now have representatives and offices in over 40 countries and there is no doubt that the Lord is 'extending our tents' in the nations. This continued expansion in the ministry will mean an increase in our international budgets as we support aliyah worldwide in accordance with our mission statement. Here we have a great opportunity to exercise our faith!
We endeavour to be good stewards of all that God entrusts into our care. Each year we spend over 90 per cent of the total money given to Ebenezer International from the nations on our direct operational costs and we issue an annual report to our national boards.
Our main operational area remains in the countries of the former Soviet Union, where we have 100 staff and fishermen who each year help thousands of Jewish people make aliyah, often travelling vast distances to visit Jewish families. Our teams give out food parcels and medicines, with a special focus on Holocaust survivors. To accomplish this task we have to rent offices and run and maintain vehicles which operate in vary harsh conditions through all weathers.
