Betty Kemp knows all about making sacrifices. In the 1990s, Kemp served three years in the United States Army and an additional two years in the U.S. Army Reserves. She was honorably discharged from the service as a captain.
Since then, as a civilian, she has worked as a home healthcare provider, where sacrifice means thinking about and serving others is a daily way of life.
But then Kemp has never known anything different throughout her life. Through her Christian faith, it’s just the type of person she was raised to be.
And through every phase of her journey as a servant leader, it led to a big decision to help the people of Israel….When she learned that Magen David Adom relied heavily on contributions, she made a one-time donation, which turned into a monthly commitment. Most recently, she named the organization as a beneficiary of part of her estate.
“…[The Jewish people] are set apart by God as His chosen people. Jesus was a Jew, and the Bible makes it very clear that those who bless Israel will be blessed. One way to love God is to love Israel,” says Kemp.
“I give to other agencies, but I especially enjoy giving to Magen David Adom because it is one of the biggest lifesaving ventures in Israel.”
