    Dear Shalit, You look fine and well taken care of. Why you are still alive God knows, because after you many have died in wars that came as a result of your capture. Surely the LORD has a reason for keeping you alive. The people who have held you captive are your brothers; the more they see you the more they get attached to you because of the presence around you. You are not alone you are a sibling of David our forefather. God gave promises for us and our children, that he will never leave us. God is with you as He was with David. David believed he would see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living and so be unto you. Our God is not an idol He hears and replies talk to Him and understand His mission through you, A leader lies in waiting in a mission like you. Meditate on the beauty of the LORD and let the peace that passes all understanding be with you. Shalom and God bless you son. Amen.
