The theme during the Passover camp was the “prodigal son”. We also stressed verses that pertained to the fact that all have sinned, that there is no place where we can go where God is not present (whether we are trying to run from Him or whether we are seeking Him in times of trouble), and that God does not take pleasure in the death of the wicked but wants all of us to come to Him in repentance.
During Passover, we hosted a Seder with people from two Bible studies. We usually get much smaller numbers during the regular weekly meetings, but here everybody brought their spouses and children.

Our Heavenly Father is faithful to His promises and blesses our ministry. When I have an opportunity to share God's love to these precious people, I thank him. Our work has a time limit because I have seen six people from the group of Holocaust Survivors in Sderot die recently, to my profound regret.
