Hosting Short-Term Mission Trips To Israel

Team Member Testimonials

Thank you, Bess, for all you and Larry did to make our experience so rich and rewarding.  There is no doubt in my mind that God answered our prayers and provided divine appointments, increased knowledge, an opportunity to serve in numerous ways, and a sense of His presence.  Some might think after traveling to Israel four times, it'd get boring.  Quite the contrary!  I'm more in love with the land and the Jewish people than ever and pray He might provide another opportunity to go back soon!  Thank you, Bess!  Thank you, Larry!  May God continue to bless you, your family and your ministry!  Shalom in the blessed name of Yeshua!

I want to express our gratitude for hosting us and putting the time and effort into setting up the different ministries and showing us the glory of Israel.  We appreciate comfortable home and the great food we ate while we were there.  I want to let you know God used you two in a great way in the following areas: showing us the great spiritual and physical needs there are in Israel, showing us why we need to pray for the people, seeing the archeological and geographical proofs of our faith, being able to see the historical sites of the Bible, giving us a heart for Israel and confirming the calling that God has on our lives.  He is still showing us the fruit He produced through our trip.  I want to encourage you to keep pressing forward and making yourselves available to be used to further the Kingdom of God.  You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Just wanted to send along my sincere Thanks to you for your wisdom and for your servant's heart that God gave to both of you!   We really enjoyed our trip and your ministry to us.  


I would love to come back sometime and see you and share more about the nation of Israel.   Bess,  you are a special woman with exuberance and zeal for your work.   Larry,  you are a special man with love and desire to  do the work that God has called both of you to do.  Thank you both for your leadership and for helping us to love God's people even more.

We thoroughly enjoyed our first trip to Israel. What a wonderful way to see the land of the Bible and to meet and serve the people of Israel. We served in many different capacities including praying for soldiers at a rehab hospital, clearing vegetation at a local natural area, serving tea to visitors in the Old City of Jerusalem, assembling pallets of food at a warehouse, organizing donations of food and clothing at another ministry, and actually serving the people of Israel with a meal and clothing donation. It was an inspiration to work alongside those ministries blessing the people of Israel in Yeshua’s name. Larry and Bess are gracious hosts. We greatly enjoyed meeting them and being welcomed into their home. We also loved Bess’ cooking; introducing us to much of the local cuisine!

When we ask with an honest heart, God is faithful to provide and to reveal Himself to us. God revealed Himself to me in a powerful way on a short-term missions trip with Beit Rachamim. He showed me how He is providing and caring for His people in remarkable ways. It was such a blessing to meet and serve Jewish people who had immigrated to Israel from all over the world, including the Ukraine, Russia, Italy, Yemen, and Ethiopia. I even had the privilege of praying with some of them. I look forward to the next time that I am able to go, serve, and share Yeshua's love with the people of Israel.

What a blessing to be a part of the first mission trip to Israel, with Beit Rachamim! While a tour of Israel explores its past and gives insight to further my Bible study and knowledge of my Savior, a mission trip provides opportunities to serve the Israel of today. And the Israel of today needs their Savior, Yeshua (Jesus)! God placed on my heart a desire to go and serve, and he honored that desire, as we touched the lives of people who are poor, hungry, disabled, and lonely. By preparing emergency kits, serving food, offering a cool glass of water or visiting poor and elderly families and individuals we demonstrated the love of God and his Son. My prayer is that these small acts of love, done in the name of Yeshua, will open hearts to his salvation.

I have been blessed to go on two separate tours of Israel, and they were fantastic as it helps the Bible come alive. Going on the missions trip was a completely different experience as I was involved directly with ministries who have direct impact with the people in Israel. It was an amazing experience as our leader Larry guided us to the seven ministries we were able to serve with. It was important to come with a servants heart to just want to bless all those we came in direct contact with. Beit Rachamim is such a God-centered ministry that allows everyone to take part in a truly life changing trip as we bring the love of Jesus directly to those in Israel. Even though I was blessed to be a part of the original trip, I would go again tomorrow if our Church had another trip.

It was such a blessing to serve the people of Israel on the first short-term missions trip hosted by Beit Rachamim. Larry and Bess are such amazing people with a true heart for God and desire to serve the people of Israel. The trip was such an amazing experience filled with opportunities to learn about and spend time with the people of Israel and to share the light and love of Yeshua (Jesus). While you may have been on a tour to Israel, this is a very different type of experience, that if done with a heart for service will foster in you a joy and love of Israel like you never imagined. It was a life changing trip. I cannot wait to return.
