God plans come unexpectedly and shocking sometimes yet He always cares and provides for us. On Friday, Beth had a concern about her pregnancy. When the email came from the doctor letting us know that we needed to fly to the Highlands for a checkup, our NTM pilot just happened to be in our town getting ready to head back to the Highlands. Our NTM plane only comes to our town every 1-2 months so it was definitely God’s timing that the pilot was there to take Beth to the clinic. Beth was able to see the doctor right away for an ultrasound. And we found out the sad news about our baby… he or she only lived 4-5 weeks, yet Beth was 10 weeks along before we found out about the miscarriage. When Jacob told Jonathan the sad news, he responded, “Well, mom will come back and we’ll get another baby”. We are very sad but know that God is still good and has a bigger plan then we can imagine in our own little minds.
Jacob and Jonathan flew up to be with Beth the following day. We are so thankful for the love and care of our friends here in the Highlands who have provided a house for us to stay in, delicious meals and snacks, and lots of prayer and encouragement. So thankful that Beth is healthy and there were no complications with the miscarriage. And we are looking to the future and maybe even another pregnancy and addition to our family. Please pray with us as we head back home to the Sepik tomorrow. There is still a few work projects that Jacob needs to finish up and of course lots of packing to do before we head home. Thank you so much for your support and encouragement!
The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in Him.
