Helping hands in Israel
News and prayer update from Jennifer and Kevin Cable in Jerusalem, returning to Jaffa
After the attacks on 7 October, mission partners Jennifer and Kevin Cable travelled from their base in Jaffa to Jerusalem to join in the Anglican response to the situation.
In Jerusalem, they have been looking after refugees coming from southern Israel while still maintaining an online community for those who have stayed behind in Jaffa.
Pitching in where necessary, Kevin has spent time cooking meals, washing dishes, preparing rooms for people to stay in or leading services and praying with people, while Jen has been working with the women and helped get everything ready for those arriving with children.
As the church building they hire in Jaffa remains closed, in December, they invited the remaining members of their congregation to join them at Christ Church Jerusalem for Christmas.
In the midst of the ongoing conflict, Jen and Kevin were glad to be together with them again even for a short while.
