I hope that many of you remember me sharing about “A” who escaped trafficking and had 3 children, including one with disabilities. Due to being in “limbo” in Israel, without status, we asked for prayer for her and were able to assist her in a small way.
We received word that she and her children are on their way to Canada! Everything has been arranged for them for school, assistance and medical care for her child. We are praising the L-rd for this opportunity for them. Please keep them in your prayers as they make this huge transition.
WHAT THE ISRAELI ELECTION RESULTS MEAN
Yesterday was the election again in Israel. Baruch and I are always so proud to be able to cast our votes. With 92% of the votes counted, the results do not look favourable for a new government to be established. Either a few kenesset members will change party affiliations, giving Netanyahu the 61 seats he needs, or perhaps the leader of the Blue and White party will bring enough of his party to form a unity government. This is not desirable, as it will move the government to the left and makes President Trump’s plan for Israel forming a Palestinian state a greater possibility. This is not good! Unless a strongly right wing government can be formed, we hope there will be a 4th round of elections. Of course there are other possible scenarios and time will bring clarity to the political situation here in Israel.
Today I had the opportunity to head down to Eilat to meet up with our younger daughter. On my way down there on the bus, I was able to capture some beautiful pictures of the desert in Southern Israel.
