Although life is not yet back to the pre-pandemic “normal,” the relative reopening and relaxed restrictions in Israel are refreshing and hopeful. For the first time in longer than a year, our staff was able to meet in person at a park and exchange visible smiles. Last month, in addition to our monthly women’s Bible studies, which still met via Zoom, we organized a special ladies’ brunch in the park, to which we invited women from both our Hebrew-speaking and English-speaking Bible studies. Both food and fellowship were fully savored! Please pray for wisdom as we try to sensitively and cautiously navigate between continued online Bible studies and in-person fellowship. Meeting online has allowed busy ladies from farther away to join us, while we do still crave in-person ministry.
