Let’s Talk Specifics

AHI costs in Israel

Beit Shalom rent:

We pay less rent in the new house, but this landlord would still like us to pay it!  Two ways to help; donation for the house is still tax deductible:

1. Commit to donate any portion monthly for Beit Shalom rent (due 1st of month- 7000nis / $1944)

2. Beit Shalom is for sale.  Consider purchase of Beit Shalom ($600,500).  A donation of minimum 50% is required for a mortgage to purchase that way.  Although we believe in debt free, we are open to the Lord’s leading.

3. Either way, as a donor for Beit Shalom, your name will be engraved in a brick for our garden at Beit Shalom!  We are in the process of preparing bricks for those who have already given for our housing.  More on this in the next newsletter.

Our Chrysler van has repair bills:

$8000 will replace steering, thermostat housing, repaint sun damaged areas, bumper boo-boo (high curbs), broken engine latch, emergency brake pedal and maybe the CD player (to listen to Hebrew lessons on long trips).

Answer to question asked: Why not replace the van? Current van & engine is in good condition and a newer van would be $36,000; new would be $50,000!
