The fight for LIFE in Israel

“For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.”

Psalm 139:13

Even though our time in Israel is coming to an end, our hearts seem to be finding new capacity for these people and this place.  Initially, all the information, experiences, and perspectives felt overwhelming,  But now, as our minds have begun to adjust to the culture and a broader perspective, once again we find room to share the heart of the Father.  Today, we were able to meet with a leader in the pro-life movement of Israel.  She was wonderful to us, inviting us into her home and charming us with tea, coffee, and warm carrot cake.  She shared about cultural mindsets, statistics, and testimonies of life.  We were able to pray with her, which was really powerful.  The biggest thing that stood out to me was that we all have our place in this battle for the unborn.  Just like in Nehemiah, God has given us each our own task.  For some it is prayer, others volunteering at a pregnancy center, another taking in a unwed mother, but whatever it may be, we must acknowledge the importance of each one’s part.  We praise the Lord for allowing us to share this part of His heart, and are thrilled to see someone taking an active role here.  With bigger hearts, greater revelation, and new connections, we will press on in this fight for life!
