I woke up Sunday morning after another jetlagged-with-a-sick-kid kind of night to what sounded like heavy furniture being dropped on the floor downstairs. I was musing over who could’ve been picking up furniture at this early hour when I rolled over to look at my phone and saw the breaking news that Jerusalem had been fired upon. The realization that what I had heard were rockets being intercepted by the Iron Dome without me hearing a siren first had me out of bed instantly. Did the sirens malfunction? Were more rockets coming?
While Israelis (and Israel supporters around the world) may admire the IDF for its successful efforts in staying our nation from enemy attacks, we know that the army is made up of people. More specifically, in this army are hundreds of Israeli believers in Yeshua. And we want to take care of them just as they give their all to take care of our nation.
