Sea of Galilee Almost, But Not Quite Full

The Kinneret is currently at the highest level it has been since 2004 and rose by another centimeter between Friday and Sunday 3-5 April 2020. It now stands a mere 34 cm below the upper red line. Earlier this month, the Water Authority announced that the dam was not expected to open this year, even though the last two years have had high amounts of rainfall. In March 2020, the Israel Water Authority had said it would open the dam at the southern end of the lake near Kibbutz Deganya if the lake reached 20 centimeters below its maximum level. But despite heavy rains this winter, the Kinneret has fallen slightly short of the mark. All parts of Israel have had more than their average annual rainfall for the entire season. The past two winters and a dramatic decrease in pumping have brought the lake from being dangerously near the black line threshold, which would indicate a severe ecological danger. (VFI News)

Thank you, intercessors, for your on-going faithful prayers that Israel would receive much-needed rain again this year. Your prayers and ours have been answered abundantly! "As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater." Isa. 55:10
