MIDDLE EAST: Martyr’s Widow Seeks Favour with Government

Nov 16, 2022 | VoM

Rami Ayyad, who operated the only Christian bookshop in Gaza City, Palestine, was abducted and brutally murdered by Islamic extremists in 2007.

At the time, his wife Pauline was pregnant with their third child.

Not long after Rami was killed, Pauline and her children left Gaza and sought safety in the West Bank city of Bethlehem.

Pauline has requested prayer that the Israeli government approve her request for their official address to be updated on their identity papers.

Pauline added that it is vital for the government to approve the change before the end of the first week of December when her oldest son turns 18. Otherwise, his old Gaza address will become permanent on his record.

“Without updating the address, he will not be legal in this area,” Pauline told VOM.

Please Pray

Pray that Pauline and her children will find favour in the eyes of the Israeli government, and that their identity papers will be updated before her son’s birthday.

Pray for continued provision and protection over the family.

Pray that other refugee families like theirs would find security and stability in new places.
