"Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself." Galatians 6:2,3

Recently I reported here about an Israeli Messianic Pastor's son who was critically injured when he opened a delivered package that was explosive and full of sharpnel. This story has made worldwide news and headlines, and Christian brothers and sisters from all over the world have sent their prayers to Ami and the Ortiz family of Ariel, Israel, and Ami is making miraculously progress in his recovery, though he still has a long rehabilitation period ahead of him.

An updated report on Ami's progress can be found here. Interesting, the report notes:

"Megachurch leader John Hagee, who just brought hundreds of Christians on a "stand with Israel" tour came to Ariel on April 3 to "bring comfort to the Israeli people," and yet completely ignored this Israeli family who was in need of comfort....only four blocks from their well-publicized performance. One Ariel believer who attended this "night to honor those who honor Israel" asked a member of Hagee's delegation if they knew about the Ortizes and their trauma. Apparently the tour leaders did know, but they left town without so much as sending a note of encouragement. May the Lord forgive them-we got more support from the nonbelieving mayor of Ariel than from these prominent brothers and sisters."
