WHY ISRAEL ?

​​'It shall come to pass in that day that the Lord shall set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of His people who are left, From Assyria and Egypt, From Pathros and Cush, From Elam and Shinar, From Hamath and the islands of the sea. He will set up a banner for the nations, And will assemble the outcasts of Israel, And gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.'               --Isaiah 11:11-12

Looking back, it is not hard to see how God was already planting seeds within us in this type of work.  In this blog article, a newspaper article documents this early introduction to this part of our world.

SERVE Nazareth hosted the November 2015 Walk the Jesus Trail fundraiser to raise funds for the projects that SERVE Nazareth does in Nazareth, Israel, as part of The Nazareth Trust.  The St. Pantaleon Foundation started with this as our initial project with total funds raised for SERVE Nazareth being $6,507.00;  100% of this money was sent to The Nazareth Trust.  We traveled to Israel and participated in the fund-raiser hike of over 65 kilometers from Nazareth to Capernaum; other hikers from Pennsylvania, Scotland, England, and Ireland also hiked with them along with a guide.

You can learn more about the Nazareth Hospital and its history by watching this video.

In July 2018, Dr. Smith traveled back to Nazareth seeking God's direction and to discover His will.  After a year of effort and travel to the Israeli Consulate in Miami, he was granted an Israeli medical license in effect while at Nazareth Hospital.  Besides working there at the hospital, he also worked one evening at Dr. Srouji's private clinic, and was also able to travel to Camp Ichay in the Golan region to tour the facility and decide upon future work there.  We were able to donate $2,500 to the Nazareth Hospital that will be used to help with funds needed for outreach medical services to provide medical care for those in the Jordan Valley West Bank region (see pictures).  This trip was from July 4-20.  The Nazareth Hospital is developing a program entitled Faith in Action which involves medical personnel putting their into action with work such as discussed here. 

Camp Ichay & 

Camp Gaza

After the visit to Camp Ichay in July 2018, that particular camp in the Golan was closed about a month later.  This visit provided the guidance to David that he needed to know that he should be working in that type of setting and serving those who cannot get medical care otherwise.  A new camp including a field clinic is being built in Gaza, currently named Camp Gaza, and we planned on working at this site in 2020, but have been delayed due to the travel restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic.  This trip is anticipated being possible in 2022.
