Dear Faithful Friend,
We need your prayers! Here in Israel, we are in the midst of an extreme heat wave with lots of wind. A few hours ago a fire broke out in the forests that surround the area where we live. They have already evacutated some of the homes in the neighboring community. We just received a letter warning us that we should prepare for what may be an imminent evacuation. The clouds of smoke have been drawing closer and the air is filled with helicopters and planes that are battling what is being called a "giant blaze". Over 15 local fire departments are engaged in the current battle.
Please pray for the fire departments that are battling the blaze. Pray for the pilots that are also fighting the blaze with helicopters and planes. Please pray for the safety of the many people who live in this area. And finally pray that the forest fire would be extinguished quickly.
Haaretz Newspaper at haaretz.com has an article about the current situation. You can read this article here.
Please keep praying!
End of Day Update
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! We just received a letter from the local governing council that the fire has been brought under control. They extended very deep appreciation to all those firemen, pilots and other volunteers who spent long hours fighting this dangerous blaze.
But what they do not know is that so many of you were active in prayer. Together, we lifted up a cry for help and by God's grace and in His power, this potentialy destructive fire was brought under control.
We want to thank you so much for your faithful stand in this moment of crisis. Your words of encouragment and your prayers were more than a blessing!
Again, we thank you for your love and support. No homes were destroyed and no people were injured. To God be the glory!
We send you our love from Zion,
