Just two days ago, we stood at the site where they were taken. Hundreds were murdered, kidnapped, tortured and raped in unimaginable deeds performed by undoubtedly demon-possessed terrorists.

Remembrance Day Ends, Independence Day Begins

Yesterday we went to the shopping area of Ein Bokek. As we sat at a table outside the mini-market we heard a clean-cut young man about 17 or 18 years old ask a question of an Israeli woman in English. We took up a conversation with him. He is from Vancouver B.C. and in this Land with a Jewish youth group. We talked a while and explained  who we are—Zionist Christians and what that means, etc.

A Day of Remembrance. A Day of Celebration.

I just came back inside my room. I had stepped outside on this balmy desert evening a few minutes before 8 PM. I knew that a one-minute siren would sound throughout the state of  Israel to mark the start of Yom HaZikaron. In English that’s Remembrance Day. A Day for the Fallen Soldiers of the Wars of Israel and Victims of Terrorism.

Tel Aviv, Mount Carmel

The large square formerly called Tel Aviv Art Museum Square has been renamed The Kidnapped Square. Here families, friends, and concerned Israelis gather to honor and await news of the hostages. A giant digital clock counts the days, hours, and minutes of their captivity. On the 63rd day, our 63-person Solidarity Tour went to the square to demonstrate that we stand solidly with them.

Day 03: Yam HaMelach (Salt Sea)

Today is a Birthday I Wonder for whom! ME!!! It’s my birthday. And what a place to celebrate. I gave myself the gift of a massage here in the hotel spa. When I told Tonya, a Russian Jewish immigrant about the tour and that we came to stand with Israel, she reached out to give me a big hug. What a birthday gift to me! Hugged by a Jewish lady who came home to Israel because God worked a miracle and brought them home from the USSR.

Day 02: Yam HaMelach (Salt Sea)

The Sderot evacuees have been in this hotel almost 60 days. Despite the horrors this community suffered for years and the unimaginable massacre of October 7, this is a lively place. Especially the children. Much of the action happens in the dining room. This morning, a young woman of about 20 told us she was a volunteer, an intern in her study, serving here.

Yam HaMelach (Salt Sea)

Arrived in Tel Aviv Sunday evening, December 3. Our driver, now 24 years old, was born in Ukraine and came to Israel when he was 3 months old. His grandmother, so tired of antisemitism so prevalent there for centuries, said, when the opportunity came to go to Israel, “I am going. You can come with me or not, but I am going.” Her family followed her.
