Fathi’s arrival

co-authored by Ruth


At only 17 days old, Fathi was rushed to Sheba last night, an emergency baby from Gaza. In his short time here, he has had a stent placed to help promote blood flow.

We are so thankful for God’s peace in this intervention and for his wonderful mother who accompanied him. It is yet another reminder for us to be obedient to God’s call. We know He is working for good in all circumstances. We see this goodness throughout the Bible – He writes joy into sorrow, healing into pain, good into evil. I know with confidence, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is still working for good in Fathi’s little life today.

Fathi’s mother is so kind and we even walked around the hospital a little bit. It was nice to hear about her family – she has three children. We really pray she will be surrounded by God’s peace in this uncertain time.
