The war in Israel created a new problem. Though our volunteers were willing to visit Survivors in areas of the rocket fire, our Survivors were too afraid to even open their door. After a couple volunteering with us were told to come back when there was peace again, we began to question how to overcome this new problem. God already had the answer.
Susan gave instructions to the Volunteers; God had given us a new idea.
“Please begin calling all the Survivors in Rishon le Zion, Bat Yam, Ashdod, Holon, etc- all the areas in and around there, wherever our Survivor contacts are. Call each one to just chat. Ask them about their family, how they are feeling, was there anything they needed and to reassure them we are praying for them. When you finish there, begin calling those in Arad and nearby to check on them. Let me know how it goes.”
The phone calls were a huge success! They were so grateful to hear from someone in the midst of their self-made exile. Even though we could not touch them physically, we could encourage them through a touch by voice.
We now have a new way to communicate and bless the Survivors. When storms and rains of trouble come, time to look forward and be happy. God is bringing the rainbow and new growth!
