The bus leaves for Gaza in about 4 hours. I have not had the best day of preparation, dealing with a stomach bug that has caused diarrhea, throwing up, and an overall unpleasant day. But I am feeling better now and know that I will be able to make it on the long bus ride – I don’t really have a choice at this point. A few hours ago we met many of the people from the delegation. It sounded like our chances of getting are looking pretty good, with at least one group already entering through the Rafah border. This is go time. Please pray for the health, safety, and success of this delegation, and I will hopefully be able to make some form of contact in the next few days.
