As war continues, tensions on Israel’s northern border are still high, and residents are still waiting to return home. But thankfully, the good work of The Fellowship continues, and we continue to deliver flak jackets to those who need them most, reports The Times of Israel:

In the next community, Brand made a detour to check on the house of some friends — everything was still in place, just as they had left it — and then drove to another village where he dropped off six Kevlar vests donated by the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews. That morning, he and Windmiller stopped at eight communities; on another day, they visited 23 places, their personal record.

In public remarks before a recent weekly cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “We are acting to restore security to the north and return residents to their homes. If we don’t achieve that [security] through diplomacy, we will achieve it through military means.”

Hezbollah’s deputy leader said on the same day that as long as the Gaza war is ongoing, Israel will not be able to allow its residents to return to their homes in northern Israel.

“There will be more suffering for Israelis,” Windmiller said as he drove. “But in the end, we will flourish once again. We will endure.”
