We found out over a month ago that Beth is expecting and as of right now, and is about twelve weeks along. Last month the mission doctor visited our center from another region and he brought an ultrasound machine with him. So, we got to see the baby and even see the little heart beating! This was an amazing blessing to be able to see our baby and we were so thankful to the Lord for it. Imagine that, here we are in the middle of “nowhere” and we were able to see our baby earlier that we even saw Jude in the States! God is so good to us!
The due date is June 25, and we’re not sure yet where we will go to deliver the baby, when the time comes. Giving birth in Papua New Guinea is not really an option, as the risks are too high. Because of this we will be flying to either Australia or back to the States to have the baby. At this time Australia is looking like the most logical choice but there is still a lot we have to look into before we make the decision.
For the first few months Beth has struggled a lot with morning sickness but seems to be feeling a bit better in the last few weeks. Please pray for the baby to grow strong and remain healthy, and that Beth will not feel as sick and have good energy throughout the remaining six months! Also, please pray for us as we make some decisions about where to deliver.
Needless to say, we are very excited!
