The Israel conference at IPC Zurich succesful!
More than 80 different people attending during three days.
Philip van den Berg writes: eight people have helped out to prepare and run the conference. We sold 66 books / dvd packages. Donations covered the cost (thanks be to God). The Sunday sermon with Rev. Willem Glashouwer was very much appreciated. There is great interest for an English Why Israel? DVD course, so we would like to start one in Zurich. People got to know about the conference in different ways: flyer, emailing, website, acquaintances, so we need to continue broad marketing and especially maintain and expanding the own contact list. We pray the C4I work in CH will get more supporters and dedicated staff. Greetings & blessings!

Christians for Israel Forum – Jerusalem March 2011
A time of blessing and refreshing
From Monday 14th – Saturday 19th March 2011 Christians for Israel International organized its Third bi-annual C4I Forum in Israel. There were some 60 participants representing the Christians for Israel branches in Europe, Africa and North America. We thank the Lord for a wonderful, enriching week together.

C4I: "Missionaries to the church"
Jerusalem Post journalist Michael Freund writes about Christians for Israel
Recently, I was invited to speak to the Christians for Israel organization during an international leadership forum it convened in Jerusalem.

C4I Spring Tour from March 19 to March 27 2011
Almost 100 people travelled through the Promised Land
The tour in itself was a unique experience, but the cultural diversity of our group gave an extra dimension to this tour. Travelling with people from Uganda, Nigeria, Canada, U.S.A, Greece, Germany, and Holland, we were often asked by people how we were all connected. We could simply explain that our common factor is that we are all Christians who support and love Israel. Many of the people who joined on this tour are leaders (for example pastors, politicians and businessmen). The tour was guided by Rev. John Tweedie (Chairman C4I International) and Jos van Westing (Director Africa). We pray that they will spread the message about Gods’ everlasting covenants with Israel in their own countries.

Christians for Israel Holland hosts IDF musicians
Pieter Benard, head of the project department: In February Holland C4I organized three concerts of ‘Tzahal’, with a total of 2500 visitors. Not only did we enjoy the music and singing of this Israeli army band, but also we prayed together with them for the release of Gilad Shalit, the soldier that has been held captive by the terrorist organization Hamas for more than four years. I share with you the moving words of this sung prayer – continue to pray for his safety and release!
