In the fall of 2010, Olive Tree Bond (OTB) invested in Israel's land and its people in a tangible way. A total of 1,300 trees were set aside to be sponsored by people like you to ensure Israeli land would stay in Israeli hands.
Currently, there are only a few hundred trees still available to be sponsored. For a limited time, the usual sponsorship rate has been reduced by over 40%. For your gift of $75 (of which $50 is tax-deductible), you can sponsor a tree in this special OTB field and receive a bonus tree for each tree sponsored. For each tree (sponsored and bonus), you will receive a certificate honoring an individual by name.
Your OTB sponsorship will bless far more than the people you’ve honored with your tree sponsorships. It will also bless people like Gali, the lead Jewish farmer on our Olive Tree Bond field. When Gali was young, Gali’s father was killed by a crash of an Arab airplane coming to attack his kibbutz on the first day of the Six Days War. Today, thanks to Olive Tree Bond sponsors, Gali is taking care of our sponsored and soon-to-be sponsored trees.
When our OTB grove was harvested for the first time in October 2013, the farmers in Israel said, “There is no doubt that the Olive Tree Bond sponsors pray for this grove.” They went on to explain that:
If you sponsor a tree by Sunday, December 8, you’ll receive your sponsorship package in time for Christmas. This package includes a personalized certificate, a 17-ounce bottle of high quality olive oil from Israel along with an attractive booklet of recipes and interesting facts about olive oil and trees. You’ll also receive a CD containing beautiful photos from Israel, and by February of 2014, we’ll send you a diagram and tree number to know exactly which tree(s) you’ve sponsored. (You’ll receive this package after Christmas if your tree is ordered after December 8; the free bonus tree will not have a sponsorship package sent with it. The bonus tree will have a certificate and map.)
Blessing Israel is part of what God has called us to do as Christians. Show your support for Israel and sponsor an olive tree today!
I have read through your entire booklet and am extremely impressed with the descriptions, pictures, certificates and map of where the tree will be planted. I have in the past planted a tree with another very large ministry, but was unable to determine what kind of tree would be planted or where it eventually would be placed. Therefore, I will certainly share this great experience with others who may want to bless Israel and your ministry in this way.
