This is Aaron. Aaron is my very dear and close brother. He lives in Israel, and has for the last 8 years. Friday, August 2nd, Aaron drowned in his friend’s private pool. We believe he may have had a heat stroke while in the pool. He drowned, and had no pulse. His friend dove in to get him and the wife of his friend, who is a nurse, began CPR right away while paramedics were on their way.
Aaron was resuscitate, and rushed to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem where he was in very critical condition. His body stabilized and on Monday he began waking up - opening his eyes, moving his body. His brain is swollen, from lack of oxygen, but there are no signs of brain damage! Hallelujah! He is responding to familiar voices, he moves a certain body-part when asked to. A very good sign!
It is a miracle that he is even alive! To Him be all the glory!
This fund is to help me, my parents, and my two other brothers travel from the States to Israel to be with him. He needs his family there to talk with him and pray with him. Sing, laugh and reassure him that God is in control! He responds well to our voices, since they are so familiar to him, it is helping him heal and make huge progress in a short amount of time.
If you have even the smallest amount to give to this fund, it would help our family make trips to visit him. I am leaving in a few short days, my oldest brother, Jesse, and my dad are currently there with Aaron.
A flight to Israel is anywhere between $900-1800 round trip. A hotel next to the hospital allows us to walk there and see him often, however the price adds up quickly. Food is also another expense. ANY amount helps us out so much. But more than that - your prayers are even more valuable.
If you cannot give even a dime, that is just fine! I ask that you would pray regardless of if you give or not.
God is working a HUGE miracle with Aaron, I am in awe of His wonder and power that he raised Aaron from death and is healing him so quickly, with very little, if any damage to his brain.
Hallelujah! He is good! I will try to keep the page updated with all progress and news with his recovery. Thank you for reading.
