Dear praying friends,
This week has seen the arrival and departure of two much-prayed-for Kurdish patients.
And as I write they are enroute to Ben Gurion airport in an ambulance which will transfer them from the tarmac of the runway straight onto the plane:
Please pray! for this complex 12-hour transfer of a child on mechanical ventilation all the way to the receiving hospital in northern Iraq. We are thanking God that he has sent the right people to take on this difficult task and serve Asmeen with their whole hearts. Nate and Colin will be Asmeen’s medical escorts, along with her highly competent mother.
Our long-awaited arrival this week was Mohammed L, the 33-year-old Kurdish patient who is in urgent need of help for his cardiac issues. He and his mother seem to have settled now into the process of assessment and quarantine at Sheba hospital:
Please pray for the Yazidi refugee triplet Hena, who also has been here for long months. She is due to have a diagnostic catheterisation tomorrow, which will tell us whether her heart is ready for the next surgery, the possible last stage of her journey (for now) in Israel. Her uncle is also incredibly patient and has done a wonderful job of caring for Hena during these months:
We also are seeing an increase in the number of coworkers in Jaffa. Since the beginning of the month, there have been two arrivals: Ella Tabea from Germany, and Joanne from Holland:
Thank you for praying with us.
