Newroz and the arrival of “stent kahn”

We have had Lalo and his mother staying with us in our community house in Jaffa for quite some time.  The other families with whom they came to Israel, have long since left, now almost two weeks ago. But both Lalo and his mother are a beautiful blessing to us; here we are pictured all together at our morning meeting.

Lalo’s mother shared a personal reflection about her relationship with God. She said that she knows God loves her very much as he gave her Lalo, with his heart problem. She says that through the hardship, she has had to rely on God so much more, and knows even moreso that He is wise above all.

This past weekend, we were also very happy to celebrate the Kurdish New Year with Lalo’s mum. The Kurds call this holiday “Newroz,” and the ladies dress in lovely gowns.

Her long-time prayer for blessing arrived this week. It was a special stent, sent for from Germany, or the “Stent Khan,” we joyfully declared in Kurdish. The “dear stent” for which we have been waiting, has finally arrived. And even better, Lalo has been scheduled for catheterisation this week!

We went to the hospital today to have a corona test in preparation for his admission. He didn’t cry at all.

Thank God for this beautiful family.
