Late this afternoon Khalid came out of his room at the Shevet House and the sight before his eyes was of Uno cards strewn on the floor between Khalid, Konav, Imdad and I and four bowls of assorted nuts in between Shifaa’s mum, Lawi’s mum and xo-worker Georgia.
We invited him to join our game of spoons! His dad who was sitting on the couch egged him on to play with us and Imdad explained the rules. As he sat down next to Jonas, a Danish volunteer, Georgia remarked how similar they looked!
We had so much fun, it was really good to spend time with him; we want God to use these circumstances that are difficult like being here for heart surgery, and make them beautiful, and today was such a gift from Him.
