Dleza is a really beautiful and sweet girl. She is like a big sister for our babies here and she always wants to help us with everything we need. Today we had the pleasure of taking her and her brother to Sheba hospital for her first assessment. She was a little anxious, because she knows that her heart is not healthy. In the hospital they performed an echo – she was so shy and nervous – and then they did a ECG, checked vital signs.
The doctor checked the echo and the report and told us that for now she needs a cath to gather more information, and after that they will decide the next step. Praise the Lord our new volunteer can speak Kurdish and English so she was able to translate everything. Please pray for her cath to be scheduled soon.
Beautiful Dleza arrived in Israel this morning, the only girl of the group, and accompanied by her brother. She is 13 years old and I have already really enjoyed getting to know her.
She greeted me so politely saying, “how are you?” in English. She was stable from our assessments at the airport and we brought her home. She is so friendly and really lovely with the babies in the house already! She is also able to speak Arabic and some English in addition to Kurdish, and so between these three languages we have managed to have a lovely chat together about our families and so on.
Dleza is going to be going to the hospital on Tuesday for her first assessment, and so please pray for her to feel peace as she settles in, and for God’s blessing over her time at the hospital.
