From the 6th till the 16th of May our Austrian branch, Christen an der Seite Israels - Österreich, hosted 9 young Israelis and their accompanying person in Austria for 10 days. All of the young adults were either wounded and traumatized during their time in the Israeli Defence Force or through terror attacks.
The first 3 days we spent in Vienna, then 2 days in the Alps in the Dachstein Region, where they met with young students from an international bible school, after that 2 days in the Wachau (Danube valley) and the last 3 days again in Vienna.
In all the places other from Vienna they were home hosted. There were many opportunities to meet with young Austrians, both Jewish and Christian. The 10 days were extremely blessed - many new friendships were formed and warm ties developed between the young Israelis and our team.We were financially so blessed by our newspaper readers and even by the Jewish community in Vienna, that we are considering to invite a small group soon again.
It was a wonderful opportunity for us to show our young Israeli friends that there are many people in Austria, a country with such a devastating past concerning the Jewish people, who stand with Israel and the Jewish nation today, and all our young guests assured us that they would return to visit us again one day!
We praise the Lord for opening this door for us and for keeping this project under His wing!
