e)We read about Rahab, a Gentile, helping Israel. (Joshua Ch.2)

Yes, Rahab hid the spies and became a friend of Israel, and she and her family were saved. Jos 2:14 "And the men answered her, Our life for yours, if ye utter not this our business. And it shall be, when the LORD hath given us the land, that we will deal kindly and truly with thee." which, of course, they did.
(Some would include Ruth here, but having done extensive research we have discovered that she would more than likely have been a descendent of Reuben and thus an Israelite. See 'Ruth the Reubenite' ) Sihon King of the Amorites had taken the land of Moab (Numbers 21:26) and then later, Joshua defeated Sihon and filled the land with the Tribes of Israel whom Moses had allocated it to (Joshua 13:32)
When we search through the Scriptures we find others who became part of Israel who were from Gentile heritage. This was never a problem, many 'strangers' became a part of Israel. Also we find evidence of blessing on Gentiles who help and are kind to Israel, such as in Num 24:1 "And when Balaam saw that it pleased the LORD to bless Israel, he went not, as at other times, to seek for enchantments, but he set his face toward the wilderness." and in Gen 12:3 "And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed."

f) Yahweh had mercy on them when they repented.

I am talking of course about the Ninevites, another Gentile people. When Jonah obeyed Yahweh and preached to them, the Ninevites repented to a man of their evil ways and Yahweh had mercy on them. There are many more examples in the Scriptures ( Torah, Tanakh, Bible etc) of Yahweh helping and giving Gentiles opportunities which you (reader) can think of. He is therefore “No respecter of persons” and will deal kindly with any who turn to Him from among the Gentile nations.

g) Do any of the prophets mention them?

The prophet of Salvation did more than mention them, He prophesied that Yahweh had indeed made provision for them. What did the prophet Isaiah say about the Gentiles? He mentioned Yahshua as being an “Ensign of the ‘peoples’, to it shall the Gentiles seek” (Isaiah 11:10) The reason we know this Ensign to be Yahshua is that Isaiah goes on to say “His rest shall be glorious” So, from long ago, Yahweh had the Gentiles in mind and made provision for them. Next, Isaiah also prophesied that “My Servant…shall bring forth judgement to the Gentiles” (Isaiah 42:1) and in verse 6 he went on to say “…give Thee for a covenant of the people, and a Light of the Gentiles” Yes, Yahweh Elohim desired that the Gentiles have light, and He gave Yahshua to be that light.
Yahweh also declared through His servant Isaiah that “…You will be my Servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give Thee for a light to the Gentiles, that Thou may be my salvation to the end of the earth.” (Isaiah 49:6)

(h) We then find them very much included in the pages of the New Covenant.

Their role in the New Covenant will largely be dealt with within my last point, but suffice it to say, the Gentiles are mentioned here and there in the Gospels, such as the Syro-Phoenician woman whose daughter was delivered of an evil spirit, (Mark 7:26) and of course, largely so in the Acts of the Apostles, letters and other writings. There is, therefore, an availability of the love of Elohim for all peoples, both Jews and the Gentiles, and the whole of mankind.

3.What is Father’s purpose for them? What is their destiny?

As we have already noted, from the Old Testament (Covenant) Scriptures, (Torah, Tanakh, Bible etc.) Gentiles have largely been either absent or enemies of Israel, but among them there has been a remnant who have come to know the Elohim of Jacob, and have become a part of Israel.
And further, In Revelation, there is a favourite scripture of mine, that great promise of a magnificent future for Gentiles who love Yahweh/God... Rev 7:9 "After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;" Rev 7:10 "And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb."
