Shifaa’s arrival

After a very long journey, little Shifaa arrived in Israel tonight. We were waiting expectantly in the arrivals lounge when we spotted the small party of mums and children in the distance.

As we introduced ourselves, I was quickly drawn to Shifaa and her mother. For a small girl, Shifaa has such an enormous smile. Absorbing all the bright lights, loud noises and new faces around her, her face was glowing like a little lightbulb as she took it all in.

Her mother, although very tired, was so kind and friendly, and the love between her and Shifaa is obvious. I really can’t wait to get to know these two better during their time with us in Israel. Please pray they quickly feel at home here, and for God’s hand to be in all her upcoming appointments at the hospital.
