a call to prayer

In getting home and settled back in I was drawn into reading the stories of the atrocities happening in the Middle East. I was away from news all week and hadn't heard anything of the recent bombings and things going on there. I poured over news articles last night and this morning, trying to understand how people can get so angry that they begin killing each other. It certainly will never make sense to me.

These things happening in Israel and Lebanon and close to my heart as I have two missionary friends in both countries currently. During our US-2 training, we spent time with the other group of young adult missionaries, the mission interns. Two of those mission interns are in this area, among all the fighting. Please pray for them in this situation and pray for those in control that they might make decisions that end the fighting rather than increase it.

You can read a short story about Ryan (in Lebanon) here. Ashley is in Bethlehem and I don't know her situation at the moment, but it doesn't hurt to pray for them both in the midst of this fighting.

Some of my friends here in ATL were scheduled to go to Israel on a mission trip next month and had already bought their flights and paid for lodgings etc. They are still planning on going if the government will let them, but they have arranged a back up plan---if Israel is closed they are going to Cambodia. What a crazy season we are in where Cambodia sounds safer than Israel. I am praying for your friends.
