Citrus Harvest

We left the hotel and drove south. We saw some Iron Dome equipment in a field. They’re constantly moving them around.

We met with other volunteers and dispersed to various activities. I was hoping to work on irrigation systems but got citrus harvesting instead.

We picked pomelits, a cross between grapefruit and pomelo. I spent most of the time picking the fruit in the higher branches by climbing into the center of the tree.

One of the goals for FIRM is to spread the news of Christians coming to the Land. They see this not as self exaltation, but as a way of spreading the message of the love of Yeshua. CBN was there interviewing people, including Ruby.

We saw and heard the Iron Dome. We heard the noise of war throughout the day. I won’t give the precise location, but it was within a couple kilometers of the Gaza border.

Pray for peace in the Land.
