Eitan & Shira*, together with their children, Dana* (9) & Mor* (4), are part of the local body of believers. Both parents are hardworking people who are an example for those around them. A few years ago, they started a restaurant in their neighborhood but sadly, their business attempt failed. They were left with a modest amount of dept. Both Eitan & Shira were very motivated to pay off the money they owed. Shira works as a personal aid for a disabled little girl in a kindergarten. The local congregation helped Eitan to get his truck driver’s license and he found a job. They had a good plan in place to get the family back on their feet.
Unfortunately, an existing medical condition worsened which made Eitan very sick and he needed to be hospitalized for an extended period of time. He was let go of his job because of his illness. Not only did the family lose his income, their expenses rose because of the hospitalization and expensive medication. Both Eitan & Shira felt crushed. They had worked so hard to stabilize their family’s financial situation and now the bills where pilling up again. How would they overcome this?
While it wasn’t easy for them to ask for help, they realized that they needed additional support. We quickly realized that this family had hit a road block and needed some help to overcome the difficulties. Thanks to our generous partners we were able to give this family encouragement, support and the funds needed. Please keep this precious family in your prayers as Eitan continues to recover. They express their gratitude in the letter below:
We would like to thank you for your generous donation. Our family has gone through a very difficult period, both health wise and financially. You gave physical, mental and financial aid while Eitan was hospitalized with a serious condition. Just when the money you donated ran out, thank God, we received a disability pension from the National Insurance Institute. Many thanks to the staff for their support and guidance. You rescued our family from the financial ruin in a difficult time and for this we are very thankful. Thanks to God, for he answered our prayers in the name of Jesus Christ.
