Many of you may have heard that yesterday there was a terrible terrorist attack in Burgas, Bulgaria. Burgas is one of the largest cities in Bulgaria, and the second largest on the Black Sea. It is a port city, and home to one of Bulgaria's two main naval bases. Several major resort cities are near Burgas, so it is also a major city for tourism. (In fact, we visited it on vacation last summer.)
I'm not going to go into all the details of the attack. The information keeps changing, and you can learn more from online news sources then you will be able to learn from me. I just wanted to assure all of you who might be concerned that we are quite safe. Burgas is over 200 miles from here, so we have not personally been effected in any way.
Please pray for the wounded and the families of the victims. I don't know all the details, but this was a terrible and tragic attack by cowardly men primarily against Israeli citizens who were just visiting Bulgaria on vacation. Yesterday was a sad day for Israel and Bulgaria.
