Maryam’s return to Jaffa

Maryam has returned to the Jaffa Center! All the families warmly welcomed them home. Maryam was reunited with many of her friends, and it was so lovely to see them playing together.

 Please pray for Maryam and Sara to rest while they are here. We hope that Maryam will regain her strength. I always think of Maryam and Sara when I read Isaiah 40:29-31:
 
He gives power to the faint,
    and to him who has no might he increases strength.
Even youths shall faint and be weary,
    and young men shall fall exhausted;
but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
    they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
    they shall walk and not faint.

Maryam will have appointments in a week to check her lungs and her vocal cords. The doctors then will decide if a bronchoscopy is necessary for Maryam. Praise God that from a cardiac standpoint, her condition is well. Some of the anatomy of Maryam’s heart will need to grow prior to her next surgery, and we hope she is also able to grow strong in preparation for that as well.
