FCSI Update August 2017

Our Core Commitments: 
Scripture Engagement 




As most students in Israel are finishing their exams and having some summer vacation, usually less activities take place in FCSI. However, this year we are having a special opportunity of sending students from FCSI to a mission trip in Canada. FCSI has had a special partnership with IVCF Canada for more than 10 years already. You can read more about the history of this partnership HERE


Dinner prepared by the FCSI delegation 

As you receive this newsletter, a group of seven students from FCSI led by FCSI staff Rasha are in British Columbia, Canada, together with students from CSPU and IVCF, and they have already been doing one week of training and ministry that included a dinner (prepared by the FCSI delegation). The topic was about how we respond to marginalized people and pain. There were about 50 people attending, among those 50% were not Christians. Later in the week the delegation visited UBC and did the Mark Drama there as well as visiting local churches.



The second week, the group went to volunteer in a camp for teenagers, and during the third week, they will be hosted by IVCF staff to conclude the trip.

We would appreciate your prayers for the mission trip, that the students will be blessed and that they also can be a source of blessing to others!


Last week, Kevin and Lavinia returned back to Israel after one year of being away to continue working with FCSI focusing on International students.


We would appreciate your prayers for the upcoming conferences and events:

  • Arabic speaking students conference
    26th – 29th of September 2017
  • International students hike on the Jesus Trail  “Walking by Faith” 
    5th – 9th of October 2017
  • Hebrew speaking students conference
    13th – 14th of October 2017

Thank you תודה شكراً

For your prayers and support
