Support Israel Event Held in Port au Prince, Haiti, May 1, 2013
Cross to Light hosted the second annual “Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem” support Israel event at the Delmas Mayor’s house in Port au Prince, Haiti where community leaders and people from all over Haiti came out to show their support and pray for the peace of Israel.
Port au Prince, Haiti, May 1, 2013 – – (Associated Press)— Cross to Light, the ministry that operates the Haiti Bible Training Center in Port au Prince, Haiti is a strong supporter of Israel and conducts on-going efforts in support of the people and nation of Israel that include the annual “Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem” event in Haiti’s Capitol. This event drew thousands of community leaders from all over Haiti that came out to express their support of Israel.
Historically, the nation of Haiti was one of three critical last countries to vote for Israel to become a nation on November 29th, 1947 at the United Nations General Assembly. Resolution 181, otherwise known as the Partition Plan, was voted in favor by the majority of the UN assembly. Resolution 181 called for the partition of the British-ruled Palestine Mandate into a Jewish state and an Arab state and provided the Jews, escaping the Holocaust, a place to live without the fear of being exterminated. Without Haiti’s vote, it is possible that this crucial resolution would not have passed.
The Mayor of Delmas, Wilson Jeudy, was gracious to help provide the event’s venue where there was live music, an important message and prayer for Haiti’s President Martelly.
Cross to Light hosts annual tours to Israel, distributes pro-Israel items, operates www.supportisrael.us and holds various support Israel events throughout the year which now include the “Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem” event in Haiti, demonstrating the nation’s steadfast and continued support of Israel and the Jewish people.
100% of event donations will be given to a ministry in Sderot, Israel called “Hope for Sderot” (www.hopeforsderot.com). Sderot is located at the Southern border of Israel near the Gaza strip and receives thousands of rockets annually. Citizens have only thirty seconds to run into a bomb shelter. Hope for Sderot helps the poorest Jewish people in this war torn town, giving them hope that only comes from Y’hoshua.
