Letters from Soldiers

In the following pages some of our friends and Soldiers have written letters to us about how they feel about our Home “Ha Miflaht” and why Theresa and I are in Israel. For most of them English is not their native tongue and we did not want to edit their letters so their thoughts from their hearts would shine through. Just click on a picture or name and it will take you to their Letter.

Aviva's Letter

Shalom and Bracha:

It is with great pleasure that I write to you about our good friends, the Johnsons. We have known them for about 6 years. During this time we have gotten to know them quite well.

Their latest endeavor is truly an indication of how they live their life. Their home is an open house to the lone soldier of the IDF. Any lone soldier who comes to their door is welcome. The Johnsons are continually cooking to make sure there is enough food to feed these soldiers. There is always room at the Johnsons for the soldiers to stay when they are off base. If these young people need a sympathic ear, the Johnsons are there. Read more

Daniel's Letter

DanielMy Home “Ha Miflaht”

Ha Miflaht What is Ha Miflaht? Is that a place where you can meet with your friends and have parties? Or is it a place where you will find a person to talk to? I would like to tell you what Ha Miflaht means.

Every Friday, after Scott (the father of Ha Miflaht) has cleaned the whole house, we come together and gather around the table, we talk, speak the Kiddush and enjoy a great Shabbat dinner cooked from Theresa (the mother of Ha Miflaht). It is also a tradition that Scott makes his delicious chicken wings! We always have a lot of fun. But that is not the only thing we do; until late at night we spend time on our balcony, drink wine and talk about God, the stories of the bible and the Tanach and the persons from these stories.

Valdimir’s Letter

VladimirHome

I remember that day…29 of May 2007, the day of happiness, sunshine…no more barracks, no more lying-in-wait to ambush the bad guys, sleepless nights, no commanders above you…

I separated from all the body armors, contents, magazine cases, helmets…and from my 3 year’s girlfriend: my semi-automatic M-16.

No, I don’t want to say that I didn’t like my service in the army…no, it’s highly important to get drafted, to defend your country. I was very proud to be in the combat unit, in border police, to serve my state and to protect the people of Israel…. but that day after 3 years I was happy to get my mission accomplished. Read more
