Encouraging Qusai’s mother

We found precious Qusai still in the ICU this morning, on a high level of oxygen support but breathing on his own without mechanical ventilation, and seeming to squint back at us out of his left eye.

After trusting his life into the hands of the Lord, we took his mother out to the waiting area for a much-needed time of connection with another mother from Gaza:

Leen and her mother (pictured above right) are waiting with us in the Jerusalem guest house until Leen’s next appointment, and Leen’s mother was a wonderful encouragement today to Qusai’s mother, who is feeling very alone in this vast hospital.
