I’ve made it back to Kurdistan and have been visiting our partner families. I had the joy of traveling out to my favorite village in Kurdistan – Bestansur. It was so encouraging to see our first partner family, The Mahmouds, and spend time visiting with them. It’s a real blessing that they are now in their new home as their family continues to grow. They now have 4 children so they are really enjoying the new bedroom in their house. We all had a great time playing with their new 7 month old baby. She’s adorable and is so friendly even with complete strangers like me! (and I definitely look like a big white stranger in her eyes!) It’s great to know that they can continue to grow their family now with adequate space in their home. They again thanked EFI for being such a huge help to their family. To me this is great motivation to keep helping the people of Iraq rebuild their lives, one family at a time!
