Please join with our sisters and brothers throughout The Lutheran World Federation in prayer for Dr. Tawfiq Nasser who is undergoing surgery today at Stanford Hospital in Palo Alto.  Dr. Nasser, CEO of Augusta Victoria Hospital (AVH) in Jerusalem, has been instrumental in bringing remarkable improvements to the care, treatment and administration of AVH during challenging times.  


The LWF and the ELCA recently issued an action alert to resolve a financial crisis created by the non-payment of $18 million in fees for patients that were referred to the hospital by the Palestinian Authority.  Find out how you can help.


Please include Tawfiq, his family, those who care for him and the patients and staff at AVH in your prayers.
