This is the latest report from our Fishermen in Eastern Ukraine. There are cities under siege, home to many Jewish families who are very anxious and hoping to leave. The Russian backed insurgents have surrounded cities. They are setting up road blocks, stopping traffic in and out. Everyone traveling through these blockades is subject to robbery, harassment, rape and even murder. No one really knows what they will face when they leave their homes seeking safer areas.

An interview with one of our Lone Soldiers sharing the difficulties they face in the Israeli Defense Force and how important the additional support is to Lone Soldiers.
There’s something very spiritual going on in our world. In recent times nations, denominations and even individuals are being challenged to make a decision regarding Israel’s place as God’s chosen people. Shockingly, some prominent long-time supporters of Israel in the Evangelical ranks have now reversed their pro-Israel position?
The major thrust of the IDF, at this point, is the destruction of the terrorist tunnel system Hamas is using to infiltrate into Israel territory from Gaza. According to a recent Satellite image from the US, there are 60 of these tunnels. Israel has taken 36 so far, destroying 16 with more scheduled. IDF soldiers are going building to building in Gaza searching for entrances and have found many in private homes, mosques, schools and so on.
I’ve been in the US now for 6 days, I’ve watched the constant media presentations blaming Israel for just about everything happening in Gaza, including the death and destruction taking place there. There are pictures flooding the world of dead children and screaming parents followed by a finger pointing at Israel as the offender, the uncaring demonized infiltrator. Anyone watching is incensed by what they see and rightfully angered at the suffering of the innocent. But it must be reiterated again and again HAMAS IS TO BLAME not Israel!
In the past few days there have been numerous riots and protests across Europe. The hatred for Israel and Jews in general, spewing out in Berlin, Paris and other communities across Europe is alarming.
“As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God? My tears have been my food day and night, while they continually say to me, “Where is your God?” When I remember these things, I pour out my soul within me” Psalm 42
Contrary to never-ending media reports, Israel’s actions are not that of an aggressor, especially towards the civilian population of Gaza. To the contrary it’s about defense.
I returned to Jerusalem late evening from the Gaza border. We took a lot of items from the Jerusalem Support Center to Israeli soldiers at the border and purchased many boxes of goodies in Ashkelon and Sderot to boost the morale of these young warriors who had been in the field many days in sweltering heat reaching into the mid 90s.
Israel Defense Force provided the passage about 260 trucks have delivering more than 4,400 tons of food, 900 tons of liquefied natural gas, about 3.2 million liters of diesel fuel, about 500,000 gallons of gasoline, into Gaza.
You are hearing that name often in these reports and other sources. Some probably wonder what it is. The Iron Dome came into existence in March 2011 after extensive development since 2006. Because of the overwhelming numbers of rockets being fired into Israel (over 12,000 since 2006) by Islamic terrorist organizations.
Forty rockets from Gaza were fired at Israel by early afternoon Wednesday, with Iron Dome intercepting eight. Sirens were heard throughout southern Israel and in the center of the country, including in Tel Aviv, Rishon Lezion, Modiin and Raanana.
Last week of March 2014 MTI’s Practical Assistance Team worked in a school just north of Jerusalem. As you can see, these Christians impacted the lives of these community in a wonderful way.
