I want to thank you for helping me; your ministry has had a lasting impact on my life. Every time I think about my past painful experiences, I am able to see each one in the light of the Lord. I know I still have a long way to go and I’m dealing with a lifetime of bad negative thought habits. But I am seeking God to know Him more and more, therefore I will come through as gold. (Irit, 43, Tel Aviv)
“Thank God and I really appreciate your input, our communication has been really good…no major conflict since our last session ;)” (35 years old male, marriage counseling)
“The tools that I received at the Anchor of Hope group have been working and really help in moments of need. I’m thankful for this ministry. I pray that God enables you to help many and many more people.” (Russian believer, 35 years old).

A 30 year old from Jerusalem writes: “Finding myself in circling in and out of depression, I got in touch with Anchor of Hope. It was my first experience with therapy and I didn’t expect much change. I was introduced to a kind counselor who quickly made me feel safe and secure, allowing us to speak about how past experience was affecting my daily life today. After several sessions over the course of a few months, I can happily say that I no longer suffer from depression, but have manage to find a positive trajectory for my future, allowing me to enjoy life and move ahead with anticipation. Anchor of Hope helped me turn my life around, and I will always be grateful for their ministry.”

“I am really grateful for your help. I felt really distressed after my divorce and the news that my ex-husband is going to remarry. It felt like my soul went into some complete darkness, and the inner pain was as real as the physical one. Of course it influenced my health, and I was feeling depressed. After a few sessions of counseling I felt more and more relieved. Instead of darkness came light and the ability to breathe freely, and the relationships started falling into their places. I even shared with my friends some of the ideas received in the counseling. It was a very big help which came exactly on time. May God bless you and your ministry. Thanks a lot again!”

“I came to Anchor of Hope in the most hopeless of conditions. Even as a believer… for many years I had completely lost my grasp on reality Dependent only upon alcohol from breakfast time to get through the day and kill the pain. None of it really made much sense… I was a partner in a great company… had years of studying scripture … but still  had fallen away and it seemed like there was nowhere else to go but further down. At the point of being literally a. just the shame felt from being a believer in that state was overwhelming. .. The most incredible transition began soon after beginning one-on-one counselling at Anchor of Hope.  That feeling of shame and worthlessness was increasingly lifted as the torment and pain carried for so long was understood from a biblical place. Forever I have so much gratitude for THE LOVE this ministry has shown this once completely broken soul.”

“I am an Israeli man in my early thirties. About two years ago I have started meeting with one of the counselors at the center to deal with an addiction I had to pornography. Slowly but surely, I started to redeem my sexuality but also to gain hope for freedom. Today, I am completely free for over a year from pornography. In the process, God unraveled a lot of things and healed a lot of wounds. Therefore, the process led me to a closer relationship with Him as well.”

“First of all, I thank you so much for your help to me and E.! Our situation is really good and for the first time I feel that I have a normal married life, and I really feel happy!”

“Joanna [Anchor of Hope Counselor, Tel Aviv] has helped me to no end. She has been a light in the darkest tunnel. She always finds a way to meet you in your pain or story and in the midst of it bring it to the Lord. She is a calm in a storm, and Anchor of Hope has helped me on two separate occasions when I needed the help the most. I highly recommend their kind services from the bottom of my heart.”

“Every time I have come to counselling, the Lord has slowly peeled back layers of pain in my heart, and opened my eyes to revelations that will go with me for the rest of my life. Being a lone soldier just before the army, I do not receive an income, and I am ever so grateful to the donors who have made it possible for me to receive counselling. You may not see the fruit of your generosity- but many people who have undergone suffering in the land of Israel do see it! Thank you so much!”

“I am a changed person since I started counseling at AOH. The prayerful and insightful sessions taught me how to gain control over negative thought patterns that previously controlled my life. I have been able to face up to and process deeply painful memories, and in a very real sense now I am free from them! Thank you so much.”
