Israel firefight with Hezbollah is largest in over a decade

September 13, 2019

Fighting erupts on Israel’s northern border, Hezbollah promises a war of terror Early last week, a sudden firefight erupted along the borderline of Israel and Lebanon. Hezbollah – nothing more than a group of extreme, radicalized terrorists who are well-funded by Iran – fired anti-tank missiles at a clearly-marked ambulance on an Israeli army base. I thank God that no one was hurt. But here’s the reality of the situation: an all-out war will mean many innocent casualties. This cruel ...

So, he left, washing his hands of any responsibility to love or care for the girl and her mother. Desperately poor after he abandoned them, the mother had no choice but to seek work in the greater Addis Ababa area, of ...

August 13, 2019

When we first visited Gutu, Zimbabwe, in 2014, 75-year-old Mandinyenya spent five hours waiting to get into the Clinic and said it was well worth the wait. He also said, “I want the people in America to pray for us. And I want the Clinic to come back again!” We did return to Gutu, and, now, we are going again. It’s been three years since our last visit. The fact that Jewish Voice is bringing another free Medical Clinic to the area is, no doubt, good news to the people of Gutu. However, we des...
