This Thursday, Israel celebrates her 64th year as a country. In honor of this day, our family is going to visit two military bases this week. We plan to print several hundred copies of the following picture and will give them out along with some candy to the soldiers we meet:
I would be thrilled if you could leave comments here in this post congratulating these soldiers and encouraging them to continue defending their country. Basically EVERY SINGLE 18-21 year old Israeli Jew serves in the military here, young men AND young ladies, unless they are excused for religious purposes. When other countries are sending their kids off to college, this country is sending their kids off to the army.
We will put your notes together, print them, and hand them out along with the pictures and candy later this week. This is a way for you to directly express your love and support for God's little nation of Israel.
I hope you'll join in! I'd really love to get 100 comments on this post, so that we can really share some meaningful support, so please spread the word. I look forward to hearing from you!
