Media Coverage

   Posted by: Alon   in Blog

Shalom all,

I thought I’d give you another update on what going on with @TheKotel. You might want to read this update from a couple of days ago, because this blog post just builds on it.

First off – I’d like to once again apologize for not following-back everyone right away. Got about 2,500 new followers in the past couple of days (not that I’m complaining though :) ) and since this operation is manual, by just me, it takes a while to deal with all the requests but I’m getting there. Yesterday I followed-back approximately 400 people, and today I intend to keep at it. Last time I followed so many people all at once (around the end of July) – Twitter actually blocked me for a couple of days from following any other users. Hang in there – eventually I’ll follow all of you back, and deal with all your prayers. As I said in that last post - I’ve proven I’m a man of my word in the past.

Second - I got an important phone call today from the secretary of a man of great importance in Jerusalem that might really help this project. This means I’ll head to Jerusalem the coming week, or the one after that at most. It’s likely that I’ll take all of your prayers with me that time.

Finally - at the end of the day, keep in mind that I’m just a 25 year old student. I’m a regular person, so yes – the media interest flatters me to some extent. I just discovered I was on Romanian TV, and also got a link to this coverage on CNet (roughly 3 and a half minutes into the clip). I’d appreciate it if you could send me newspaper articles and TV stories I’m featured in. Surely you can understand.

Send me those stories to tweetyourprayers@gmail.com . Thank you!

Thanks a lot to all those who help or just send me a supporting email. I really appreciate that and it energizes me to keep going! :)

All the best from the Holy Land,

Alon!

Wow! I didn’t realize you were so young. I suppose that sounds terrible, but I’m over twice your age, so a lot of people seem young to me.

Don’t worry. You voluntarily took on board a difficult responsibility. You don’t owe anyone an apology and indeed, you should be commended. Thanks.

You are doing a great job! We live in the states, so I am not sure how we can help you from here, anyway, people have to remember that God can hear our prayers without writing them out, but, psychologically, it does help and it seems that He has chosen you for this task.

You know, someone told me G-d wouldn’t give me more than I can handle. I think about that when things seem to hard.
