Please continue to pray for Israel. The Iranians shot 20 rockets into Northern Israel and then the Israelis retaliated. It’s the largest Israeli attack into Syria since the 1973 Yom Kippur war. We have close friends directly on the border of Syria and Israel that have a medical outreach, (the IDF has allowed them to use an old military base) They are directly in the path of the fighting. Please pray for their protection. Also, the Iranians are arming Hezbollah in Lebanon with hand-held rockets, etc. At the same time in the south of Israel, Hamas has been sending over helium balloons and kites filled with explosives that are catching the fields in Southern Israel on fire. (The same thing was done by the Germans and Japanese in World War II. In fact, the Japanese sent 900 of these balloons and kites that landed in America).
The Lord uses what satan means for evil and turns it to good. People are scared, which makes the people more open to the Gospel. They desperately want peace that only the Lord can give them. Praying that the Lord sends people that love Him and can share His peace and love with the Israeli people. In most of the country, you can’t even tell that there are skirmishes in the north and southern borders
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you”
In His unfailing care,
