We all arrived in good time for the 3:30pm flight to Tel-Aviv from Heathrow. Expectancy was in our hearts and we could not wait to get on the plane and step into Israel. However the journey was delayed by 2 hours. We often hear that what is our disappointment is God’s appointment but we discovered firsthand the truth of this saying.
Once we arrived at Ben Gurion (almost midnight) we were met by or Guide Pamela Suran, who informed us that for one hour there had been a heavy sandstorm which was so strong it blew a stage down. The storm had finished passing through the area just before we landed. Praise God that our delay was God’s protection and deliverance from danger.
Unfortunately a 20 year old female soldier lost her life when the stage collapsed on her. Let us pray for the family – that they will be comforted.
