Pastor Larry visited Israel not too long after the attacks on October 7th. He returned and shared that the things that he saw and the stories he was told when he stood in the kibbutz is beyond anything you could imagine. The atrocities he witnessed make it unable to fathom how one human could inflict such suffering upon another. These babies, women, children and elderly are not prisoners of war. They are innocent civilians who endured the horrific brutality. Pastor Larry described the disturbing devastation he saw— home, after home, after home, blown up, riddled with bullets, blood everywhere. Of even greater concern is that the further we get away from October 7th, the sooner we might forget what took place. He knew something had to be done.
The Israeli government asked Pastor Larry, a board member of the Israel Allies Foundation, to host an event to bring pastors to the Israeli Embassy in Washington DC to show footage that doesn’t get out to the public. It is footage that was taken by Hamas documenting the brutality of the massacre, of the rape, of the butchery of women and children.
