Our New Zealand team had a wonderful time lighting Hanukkah candles, singing songs, and sipping coffee with our Israeli guests at the Yellow House, one of our Israeli youth hostels. One guest was Reuven*.
Our staff members Teresa and Michael talked with him for over an hour as Reuven shared about his life in the army, his work in Tel Aviv, and his travels with his sister, Yael*. They also arranged to host Reuven and Yael later on when they arrived in Christchurch.
Teresa and Michael were completely surprised to run into him again, the next day, four hours away! Later, Teresa and Michael met friends hosting two Israeli girls from Haifa, Ronit* and Shira*. This is what commonly happens in New Zealand—the Lord orchestrates these encounters again and again!
