New York Yankees Hall-of-Famer Mariano Rivera visited Israel recently with his church. While visiting an IDF base, Rivera had this to say:
“I’m privileged and honored to be here, and learn about the young men and women who are here in the IDF, being trained to be a better person, a better citizen and a better human being. For me, it was something special that I will take with me through my life.”
Professional athletes from other sports are also finding their way to Israel, and coming away deeply impacted. Pray that continues!
