with admiration as children from our Music School performed their pieces
and shared what they had learned throughout the school year. Many of these
elderly people are over 85 and have gone through "hell on earth." And our
part in all of it is prayer and some help in the healing process for their
As we wrote earlier, in mid-June 12 people were
ready to be baptized, all of which are labors of fellowship and patient
discipleship from our elders and leaders. Even with the
encouraging political policy of "keeping a distance because of the
pandemic," the Lord continues to add those saved to
the congregation! These people join home groups and are
growing spiritually. We humbly listened to their wonderful testimonies
during our last Kabbalat Shabbat service on July
Due to skyrocketing prices in hotels in Israel, and with practically no

for everyone at the "Return to Zion" congregation. We trust in His
