One of the world’s largest TV stations, Daystar Television Network, lost its Jerusalem studio this weekend after a terrifying firebomb attack. CBN’s Chris Mitchell reports on the loss, and we pray for the attackers to be caught and for justice to be done, but more importantly we praise God that no one was injured:
The Jerusalem studio of Daystar, one of the largest Christian networks in the world, was firebombed over the weekend. The attack destroyed Daystar’s new studio but the network plans to rebuild.
The fire began early Saturday morning when an arsonist threw a firebomb into the facility.
Daystar was in the midst of a major renovation and upgrade of its studio here in Jerusalem overlooking Mount Zion and the Mount of Olives. The fire destroyed the new work and much of the existing facility.
“The control room I would say is probably totally devastated,” Dave Sharett, the contractor overseeing the renovations told CBN News. “The controls actually start here with the electric panel, the main electric panel and anything plastic is totally melted.”
Even in the midst of the destruction, Sharett believes God is at work.
“I believe that God has a reason and a purpose and at the very least he’ll redeem what has happened here. So, these ashes will raise up, be raised up and proclaim the glory of God,” he said…
