“You can’t silence the life-changing truth of the Gospel,” Marcus Lamb, founder and president of Daystar Television Network, said in a statement. “From the ashes of this tragedy, we will rise up with help from our partners around the globe and continue reaching across Israel to share God’s love and forgiveness. My prayer is that this message touches the person responsible for this incident and he embraces the hope that can only be found in Jesus Christ.”
The studio is now trying to rebuild — with help from its partners around the world.
