That came in handy a few days before her trip when she needed to travel to a nearby town for her required COVID-19 test. ...

February 02, 2021

I’m writing to ask for your help in reaching members of the “Lost Tribes of Israel” and other Jewish communities in Africa with something they desperately need: clean, safe water. But first, let me share a powerful story from Exodus 15:22-27 about the miracle of clean water: Right after crossing the Red Sea, the Israelites entered the Wilderness of Shur.
