Zion Website Lets Christians be 'Shofar for Israel'

For decades, Paul Wilbur has been known around the world for his Messianic music and worship concerts.
 
Now he's joining Israeli entrepreneurs in a business venture to give Christians a chance to be part of Israel even if they can't afford to visit.

"I'm also a part of a new start-up business here in Israel called Face to Zion, which is a web-based ministry really of uniting Christian Zionist believers from around the world by the Web," Wilbur told CBN News.
 
On the Face to Zion website, participants become part of an Israel-lovers mosaic by choosing to belong to one of the 12 biblical tribes. They upload their pictures and send a message to the site for free.
 
Part of the planned project would enable Christians to have a presence here by paying a small fee and having their pictures burned into a glass panel using Israeli technology. Partners say, the picture would then become part of a future 12-tribe mosaic monument near the Sea of Galilee.
 
"We love Israel. We were born here. It's natural," said co-founder Eyal Levin. "But to see so many people who were born in South America, United States, in Netherlands, and they love [Israel] so much and they upload pictures to our mosaic."
 
Wilbur met with his Israeli partners in Tel Aviv recently. He says wherever he goes Christians want to visit Israel and ask how they can help the Jewish state.  Face to Zion would enable them to have a united voice for Israel, he says.
 
"When you become a voice, a large voice, you can speak to nations," Wilber told the Israelis.

"I mean this can become almost a movement of lovers of Zion from all over the world. Face to Zion can speak to Belgium or France or make a statement to the White House," Wilbur said.
 
Co-founder Nir Arieli said he has been surprised to find so many people that love Israel.

"I'm traveling all around the world, I heard a lot of nasty things about Israel," Arieli told CBN News. 

"[But] there is such a huge amount of people around the world that loves Israel, why not to make them in one place that can be the voice - to be a shofar for Israel," Arieli said.

Wilbur says that will help to counter the bad press Israel gets and enable Christian Zionists to speak out for Israel.
