Visit from friends
Today we got a visit from our dear Jewish son Yadi and his two cute and beautiful friends. One had traveled all the way from Haifa to visit usIt was a great honor to have them here in Ashalim. The first time we met Yadi was when he hitchhiked with us 9 years ago and after that we had contact and are very closeHe also visited us in Norway two years agoWe usually say that Yadi is our dear Jewish son !! He has given us so much and taught us so many thingsWe are very grateful and proud "parents".
The same can be said about the friends he had with him here yesterdayYou teach us so much and it is so exciting to be with you !! Thank you for your beautiful songs!!Thank you for taking the time to spend a whole day with us taking this long trip to visit us. It was also really nice and funny to get to "guide" you!!
I want to share with you some words given to us - and I send especially those words to all the Israeli people today: 
 Exodus 14.14:
יד  יְהוָה, יִלָּחֵם לָכֶם; וְאַתֶּם, תַּחֲרִשׁוּן.  {פ}14 The LORD will fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.' 

and from Jeremiah 29.11:
יא  כִּי אָנֹכִי יָדַעְתִּי אֶת-הַמַּחֲשָׁבֹת, אֲשֶׁר אָנֹכִי חֹשֵׁב עֲלֵיכֶם--נְאֻם-יְהוָה:  מַחְשְׁבוֹת שָׁלוֹם וְלֹא לְרָעָה, לָתֵת לָכֶם אַחֲרִית וְתִקְוָה.11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
