October 30: Rocket Fire Hitting Too Close for Comfort

**A massive thank-you goes out to all of the people who prayed for our safety during our trip to Israel.

I opened the door of our hotel room to get breakfast, and the newspaper was hanging on the handle. Rather than tossing it on the table, I opened it - revealing this as the front page article...

The debris from the missiles only landed 40 minutes away from our hotel and 20 minutes away from where JD works.

Maybe this helps you understand a little more as to why we were fearful of this trip. After receiving this article, homesickness and fear were beginning to get the best of us. We just wanted to get out of there before rockets streamed further up the coast from the Gaza Strip.
