For You have been a shelter for me, A strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings.
We are on the precipice of war.
Southern Israel has been pummeled with over 20,000 incoming rockets of various strengths in the last 14 years. This does not include the northern border.
Recently, Iran has begun disconnecting almost all security monitoring cameras so the IAEA can no longer view Iran's nuclear facilities. Hezbollah, the proxy army of Iran, is known to have at least 150,000 rockets, stored all over Lebanon, to be used against Israel. Countless people could die or be wounded if they succeed.
We know that Iran has enriched uranium to nearly 90%, 18 times more than what was agreed upon, and is only days or weeks away from the necessary ingredients for nuclear bombs.
Because of the hostility from countries like Iran, Israel is now training and preparing for a multi-front war scenario. Every branch of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) just completed over one month of strategic training. This included Civil Defense, the emergency ambulance services, and hospitals. Training even took place on a nearby Mediterranean island and a simulated attack on Iran's nuclear facilities over the Mediterranean Sea. This is an "all hands on deck" situation.
On June 13 and 14, we worked with the IDF to scout potential sites for placing another 40 mobile safety shelters which will complete a total of 100 safety mobile shelters. We looked for the public areas in the cities, moshavs, villages, and towns that are vulnerable to incoming rocket fire from terrorist groups such as Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
These mobile shelters are being provided and facilitated through the work and ministry of Vision for Israel.
"When crisis comes, it's too late to prepare.”
This is an urgent call to all our partners and friends to mobilize. The requests coming in are to place hundreds more bomb shelters, order more ambulances and emergency vehicles, and provide the necessary medical kits for doctors in the field. Let us all set a kingdom example as people of great faith. Thousands of people will potentially die if Iran succeeds with her plans for Israel’s destruction.
Your prayers and financial gifts are necessary to overcome our enemies.
We need your help more than ever. Please give freely here.
May the Lord bless you and keep you during this challenging time.
Barry, Batya, and the VFI Team
