(Washington, D.C.) — A few hours ago, I landed at Washington Dulles airport and headed downtown where I’ll be delivering a speech and having a series of meetings on Capitol Hill over the next several days.
But I wanted to share with you the news that is just now breaking: Shimon Peres, one of Israel’s Founding Fathers, has been rushed to a hospital back in Israel. He appears to be suffering a stroke and is listed in “serious condition.”
Please pray for Mr. Peres — for the Lord to show grace and mercy to him, to heal and comfort him quickly. Please also pray for his doctors to have wisdom to know how best to treat him. Below, I’ve posted links to several news stories on the developing story. I’ll also keep Tweeting out the latest developments.
