We are so thankful to have welcomed our newest addition, Judson Anthony Haskins, to the family on October 4. He has been such a blessing and we are all rather smitten with the young man. Thank you for praying for Kara Linn and the birth. After a very difficult pregnancy we were thankful to have a smooth delivery experience. Kara Linn’s health has improved since his birth but she is still fairly tired. Please pray for her to get quality rest for greater energy levels and lower stress.
We are preparing to return to Papua New Guinea early next year and so we would appreciate your prayers for all the paperwork we need to do that. God has already provided Judson’s passport in half the time we were told it would take! We were then able to apply for Judson’s visa, which we are still waiting to be issued. We also had to apply for special permission for all of us to enter Papua New Guinea because of covid, so please pray that all of our approvals are granted and processed quickly.
Unfortunately the end of the year tends to become a busy time for most people and when you add in moving to another country it becomes rather stressful. Lot’s of things need to be taken care of and lots of people need to be seen at a time when lots of worship needs to be done looking forward to and celebrating the advent of Jesus. These few lines from “Oh, Come, All Ye Faithful” were a reminder to me of this last week.
“Word of the Father
Now in flesh appearing.
Oh, come let us adore him.”
Christmas celebrates the incredible moment in history when God became man and dwelt among us. The Word of the Father who created the universe appeared in flesh as a baby. It is a simple truth yet it is worthy of a lifetime of reflection and worship. We hope that you and your families are able to worship well this Christmas season. Thank you all for your prayers and support of us. They do far more good than you could ever know. All glory be to God.
Grace and Peace,
Anthony and Kara Linn Haskins
