Keep praying for her and her family. Her mother had a few health issues which we tried to help with while we were together. Let us pray for all the healing she needs to come to her from our loving God. We give Him praise for all He's done as we send these friends on their way back home.
It has been a blessing to witness the miraculous change in Fanya over just the last two weeks of her recovering. Seeing her be able to run, play, and chatter with the other little girls you would never know how seriously ill she was just one month ago.
On their way out of the hospital Fanya and her mom said a cheerful goodbye to the doctors, and snapped pictures at every opportunity on the walk back to the van.
We took Fanya in for an echocardiogram today to see how her heart is healing. After a short wait the doctor gave us good news. Fanya is recovering on
track and if all is well, after one more echo scheduled for next Monday, Fanya
and her mother will be able to go back Iraq.
