A blessing just being there

Co-worker Alena and I have been visiting little Ghada at Sheba hospital today.  I was so touched by what I saw, this was my first visit, and immediately started to pray for her and her young mother.

Ghada had her eyes nearly closed, it was so peaceful around her. The nurse came, did some checks and the results were in the frame. Ghada’s mother was very encouraged by our visit and I was impressed with how Alena spoke with her in Arabic.

The care and warm atmosphere in the hospital filled my heart with joy. The possibility to be in touch with the families in this way is a great blessing. Even though I couldn’t speak Arabic, it was a blessing just being present there.
