Naz Has Arrived

Naz and her mother arrived with two other new families in Israel this morning! Our airport crew picked them up after they had to wait some time because the flight was delayed.

In our new Jaffa house the mothers of Yaser and Sonya welcomed them warmheartedly. This sweet girl is more of a calm spirit; this afternoon she was a bit homesick and was crying for her brother. But I think it's just gonna take a little time until she unbends and feels comfortble. Welcome to Israel!

Naz Coming to Israel at the Turn of the Year

Lovely eight-year-old Naz had surgery as a toddler in an attempt to repair the hole between the atria of her heart. But as she grew doctors found further complications, and now recommend a second surgery in an advanced center.

Thank God, doctors in Israel, after reviewing Naz's medical report, have agreed to take on her case in an effort to give her a normal life. Her visa to Israel has now been approved, and we hope she will arrive on January 2, 2017, God willing.
