We Are Safe…

Hello friends . . . grace and peace,

You have probably heard the horrible news of all that is going on in the Gaza Strip. Please, we beg you, keep this whole situation in prayer.  If we have learned anything by being over here, this is not an issue that is understandable by simple reading a few articles or watching a report on CNN.  As we reported a few days ago in our blog post “Pray For Peace…” we have listened to many voices on the issue of Israeli and Palestinian conflict and we are just as confused as ever.

prayer is needed

Our best advice to all who are concerned about peace coming to this region is to 1) Pray and 2) get your information from multiple sources.  No media outlet has the corner market on presenting an accurate picture of what is going on between Israel and Palestine.  Read, watch, and study input from all sides.  But most of all, pray.

Thank you to those of you who have emailed, facebooked, tweeted, and even called.  We are safe.  All of the horrible acts (on both sides) are taking place more than 50 miles away from us and there is absolutely no threat to the Galilee area where we are currently, nor are there any threats to Jerusalem which is where we will be Saturday through Thursday when we leave.

Thank you for your continued prayers for our safety.  Please include in your prayers the safety of the Palestinian and Israeli people as well as a smooth process towards “the peace that surpasses all understanding.”

peace to you
