Christians Rally Around Injured Israeli Boy

Ad Feedback

A pastor's son who was injured by a terrorist bomb is recovering in Israel.

Last month CBN News reported about 15-year-old Ami Ortiz, who suffered massive injuries after being attacked in his own home.

A bomb had been delivered, disguised as a gift box. It blew up in his hands.

Doctors now say he'll regain the use of his eyes and is making remarkable progress in other areas of his body.

CBN's Chris Mitchell told us from Jerusalem today that Christians around the world are rallying around Ami's family.

"I think they can literally feel the prayers of the people, not only here in Israel, but around the world literally sustaning them," Mitchell said.

"Leah told me last week that she felt like some people were literally crying for her she's not crying quite so much now she feels like other people are literally crying for her so I think it's been a remarkable testimony of intercession and prayer around the world for the Ortiz family right now," he said.

There is still no official word on who was behind the attack.
