Misgav Am

Actually, it happened on the evening of December 11 that our longtime friend, Betzelah, who addressed us many times at Misgav Am, came to the Ramat Hotel to speak to us. (This very brave and strong man gave me a long-lasting bear hug that spoke volumes.)
For years our tours have sat at Misgav Am while someone (Mike Ginsberg, or later, Ariyeh or Betzelah) from this strategic combination kibbutz/military post would describe how we were looking right into what appeared to be houses, but each one was constructed with offices on one lower floor, missiles on one floor, and families living on the top level. Thousands of missiles were aimed at us. Hezbollah occupied southern Lebanon.

Misgav Am has had a direct missile hit right where we sat.
And the IDF has hit the very villages we looked into.
All towns and kibbutzim within a two-mile radius of the border have been evacuated.


The Golan Heights

We were driving in this strategic area, which many were saying the Jews should give to Syria not too many years ago. (Israel won it from them in the Six-Day War.) No one says it now.
For if they had, Iran’s proxies would be sitting on the very Sea of Galilee now rather than north of the Golan.

At the last minute, we were granted permission to go to the Syrian border. We got off the buses at a location overlooking Quneitra, now the UN headquarters, sitting on the border. There I shared the details of our “Tone Down” trip in April 1986.

Later, we spent quite a bit of time at a factory that produces products made from olives. The owner’s grandson, about 8 years old or so, was playing around the place. His grandfather said, “I got a call from my daughter asking me to come get him and keep him while she was called to duty. She is a crack helicopter pilot. Called up from the very first for rescue flights into Gaza. Under fire, she takes out soldiers wounded there.”

He, like everyone everywhere we go, was so encouraged by our being there. He asked me to make a short video with him. He wants to post it on his wide network. His first question to me, “Why are you here?” Before the evening was over we were dancing and singing “Am Israel Chai” (“The People of Israel Live”).

    Thanks again for your updates. We are there in spirit.
    It has occurred to me that you could be there when the intervention of God as described in Ezekiel will take place on behalf of Israel.
    Exciting times we live in. Our faith and love surround you all.

    • Pat DiFeo on December 16, 2023 at 11:49 am

      I can picture you dancing and singing with this dear factory owner. Your “great faith” allows you to boldly go, bringing joy to Israel where most others are shrinking back, fearing the worst. You are such an ambassador of God’s comfort and joy❣️

Your hug reminded me of that all we have been through where Hashem has been so faithful, protective and guiding us. I am praying with you as a WWP. Am Israel Chai. Donna Medina

    Again in 2005 with Chris Milan. What a difference just 20 years made. Went inside the Dome actually),
    Now 18 years later. Wow! I say Wow.

    Thank you sister Billye for sharing these truly significant moments with us. The bear hugs too 🤗 Our 3BI study tour visit to Misgav Ami on 27th February 2020 is one I’ll never forget. It was one of my tour highlights. From the moment my feet stepped onto this property the Holy Spirit moved powerfully on me. I was overcome and in travail 😭🔥 for these precious people. That tour – thanks to you – we met the strongest and bravest people I’ve ever met. The love and bond we have with our Jewish brothers and sisters runs incredibly deep. Keeping you all in prayer 💓 Wish we could see the host of angelic protection surrounding you 🙏🏻❤‍🔥🇮🇱😇 Lots of love always from the UK 🇬🇧

I’m praying daily during my “watch” time for the Peace of Israel. Thank you also to the “tour group” for standing, praying and showing the love of God to the Jewish people of Israel. Praying for safe travel as your group prepares to head home. Love in Christ, Kim.
