It’s nearly 6 years since Pauline’s husband Rami, the manager of Gaza’s Christian bookshop was murdered when she was 5 months pregnant. She now cares for George 8, Wisam 7 and Sama 5. They have not been told what happened to their father. She has started and ministers to a group of 6 Christian widows, who meet to study and pray,  many of whom still are grieving. Pray for these lone parents,  their children at school and for their spiritual keeping.



Pauline admits that it is Christ’s love in her that enables her work.

She still awaits a Palestinian ID card to enable her to travel from the West Bank.

In the Gaza strip the Christian population has shrunk from an estimated 3,500 to 1,500 in recent years, and there are fears that it could disappear altogether.
