Jordan Update #1

2018-07-16

Greetings from Amman, Jordan. I’m here for our annual Middle East & North Africa training conference. I had an update planned for today, but instead, I’m bringing you an urgent prayer request. Our international director, Dr. Wahid Wahba, also serves as our regional director for this part of the world. If you’ve been around Walk Thru the Bible for a while, you’ve likely come to know what a good leader and special friend he is.

Yesterday at lunch, Wahid looked terrible and didn’t order anything. He thought he was suffering from a kidney stone and went to his room to fight through the pain until it passed. Thankfully, late last night he decided to go to a hospital and get some medicine. Turns out it's not a kidney stone but a strangulated hernia. He is now back at the hotel from the hospital.

Wahid is scheduled to have surgery for his hernia here in Amman at 10:00 am Wednesday. That’s 3:00 am Atlanta time. He has to wait a few days in order to get the blood thinner (Aspirin) out of his system. Laila flew over from Cairo early this morning and is here with him now. I just spoke to him and he seems to be feeling better thanks to the pain medicine. Please pray! Last year Wahid couldn’t come because of visa issues. Now this year he’s here but not able to participate and help lead our conference. He is frustrated and disappointed but he and Laila are thankful to be under the care of an excellent doctor in a clean, modern hospital.

Please pray and send a return message to let him know you’ve got his back. I’ll group your messages together and pass them along to Wahid and Laila. Thanks, and watch your inbox for updates on Wahid and our conference over the next few days. We need your partnership in prayer!

Peace Yes No   I'm sure there are many words you have taught that can come to your mind right now. Surely a big disappointment but so thankful there is a special hospital to give you good care. Glad Lilia was able to come.

Love you both......

Get Well Yes No   Wahid,
Sorry to hear about your current circumstances and pain, but God must have a special assignment for you in the hospital. Praying that you don't miss it and that all goes well for you during surgery and recovery. May the Lord extend His loving kindness towards you today.
Blessings,
Cindy C

Praying Yes No   We’re praying for you in Canada, Wahid. May the Lord fill you and Laila with his peace and comfort! We are Lisa & Marc Geeting’s parents so feel as though we know you through them. Find encouragement and comfort in Eph. 3:20 and Psalm 16:8. He is able, rest in him. Praying for successful surgery, speedy recovery and God’s blessings on your opportunities to share at the hospital.

With our love,

Bill and Carol

Get Well Prayers Yes No   Brother Wahid,

You have been blessed richly by God for the "equipping of the saints for works of service." Abba must be using you in mighty ways because the Enemy sure seems threatened. Let that be an encouragement. Get well and rest in His care. Noemi and I will be praying for a speedy recovery so you can get back to work. Meanwhile conduct a couple of impromptu Live Events in the recovery room!

Blessings,
Arlie & Noemi Francis
