Welcome Bavia

Nine year old Bavia and his mother flew from Sulaimaniya, Northern Iraq and arrived in Amman, Jordan early this morning. They were tired and travel-worn, but after a good long nap, they are awake and we are enjoying their company.

I made a Kurdish dish for the families, a savory Beriyani. Everyone enjoyed and was refreshed.

Both moms are teachers in Kurdistan and their sons are the apples of their eye. Tomorrow morning they will travel across the border to meet Shevet volunteers to bring them to the community home in Ashdod, Israel.

Pray for these sweet families that they experience healing and the love of Jesus during their time in Israel.

They arrived safely the next day and are safe and sound in their new but temporary home.

Bavia will have his first echo at Sheba Hospital at the start of this week.

Thank you for your prayers for this young boy.
