200 guests attended the ‘Enter the Story’ Gala Dinner at the RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast, Queensland, where they enjoyed hearing international and local guest speakers including Israel’s ambassador to Australia Mark Sofer along with live musical entertainment.

The keynote speaker was Pastor Larry Huch – Founder and Senior Pastor of New Beginnings Church, Dallas Texas and Larry Huch Worldwide Ministries.

Other guest speakers included Ambassador of Israel to Australia H.E. Mark Sofer and Chairman Keren Hayesod-UIA Friends of Israel Australia Pastor Greg Cumming.

The award-winning Vivace Choir and String Quartet from Emmanuel College provided a festive atmosphere with a magnificent live choral performance.

Keren Hayesod-United Israel Appeal’s Friends of Israel Division is a network of Christians around the world who believes in the strategic importance of the State of Israel as the beginning of the fulfillment of the Divine prophecies. Based on both religions’ common Biblical heritage, they work hand-in-hand with their Jewish brothers and sisters, along with friends of Israel across the world, to support the efforts of KH-UIA to help bring the Chosen People back to the Promised Land, and ensure its safety and security.

Chairman Keren Hayesod-UIA Friends of Israel Australia Pastor Greg Cumming said: “As Christians we are eagerly awaiting the fulfilment of the Biblical prophecy and for that, the Jewish people must return from around the world ‘on our shoulders and in our arms’. It is our responsibility to Enter the Pages of the Bible by practically fulfilling this.”

UIA Australia Federal President Lance Rosenberg said: “The evening was a wonderful demonstration of the close cooperation of the Jewish and Christian communities worldwide, and we are so grateful to each of those who attended – primarily for their attendance but also for any financial support they were able to provide.”
