I haven’t had any additional information on Amiel for sometime but today I received an email from my friend in Christ, Daniel which along with some disturbing news had this update on Amiel.
Thanks to everyone that has been lifting Amiel and his family up to the Lord. I know that God will bless you for your diligence and your prayers.
I am excited to see what God has in store for Amiel and for the body of Christ, all I do know is that God will be glorified! So, here is the update on Amiel from, “The Voice of Martyrs”.
Pastor’s Son Recovering after Bomb Attack – VOM Sources
Praise God! Amiel Ortiz, the teenage son of Messianic Pastor David Ortiz, is recovering after he was seriously injured when a bomb delivered to the family’s home in the Jewish settlement went off in his hands. According to The Voice of the Martyrs contacts, Amiel’s father reports, “We checked out of the Schneider Children’s Hospital last week after a six-week stay, eight days in the ICU and the rest on the children’s floor. Ami received excellent care from the doctors and nurses in that hospital, but in response to prayer from the four corners of the earth, Ami has been healing at a rate that is extraordinary The plastic surgeon that worked on Ami said that in his 15 years of experience, he had never seen such extensive wounds. He said he has at least 100 pieces of shrapnel in his body from his head to his feet, which his body is slowly bringing up under the surface of the skin, which will come out by themselves.” Pray for Amiel’s continued recovery as he has transitioned into a rehabilitation center. Pray specifically for both eardrums to be restored, for him to regain use of his hands and arms, and healing for the burns and scars on his body. Also for the emotional healing for Amiel and his family, and for those responsible for the attack to be brought to justice. Ask God to give this family strength to forgive their attackers. 1 Corinthians 1: 3-5
