Flag waving in Ashdod, Israel.
Yesterday was Memorial Day for Soldiers and victims of Terrorist Attacks. When it ended in the evening, Independence Day began. Last night there were fireworks, music and parties. Today there are cook-outs and lots of music. Some stores will open back up this evening.
With the recent rocket attacks, it just emphasizes the need for a strong IDF (Israel Defense Forces). Please pray for Israel and her leaders. It is an important time in her existence, as so many forces wish to annihilate her!
We appreciate all of the emails and messages asking about our safety and that of our children. Thank you so much. There were rockets that landed a couple of blocks from our home. In total, four Israelis were killed, including one from our city.
