It was Day 5 of our RSV admission of one of our twins, one month old. We thought her twin was going to also be admitted. All three children and I had RSV except dad. I was worried and exhausted. I started to sob with the call from my husband. I found Ariel. This was her second day caring for us. I just cried and cried to her because I was by myself because my husband was at home taking care of our children. She then said, "I saw you watching a sermon yesterday (it was Sabbath), and can I pray with you and for you?" Her genuine and beautiful prayer made every bit of difference for me. God granted me peace and extra courage. She "extended the healing ministry of Christ" by simply being who she is. I will forever remember her loving kindness and expertise.
