The day after surgery

Today I was able to visit Awmed’s grandmother in the ICU of Sheba Hospital. The lovely lady saw me from her room and came to me outside. She was crying! I could not do or say anything. But perhaps words were not needed in that moment. With an embrace we show our love, our support, and say I am here with you and I sympathize deeply.  That’s what I tried to do. I hope the Lord continues to comfort her heart.

Still, it is good news that the condition of Awmed is stable. He is intubated however and we need to wait and see whether he can be removed from this sooner than later.

Please keep praying with us for this wonderful boy and for his eventual improvement. Bless his grandmother with peace and confidence, that God is able to do more than we can possibly imagine.
