It's a GIRL!!!

Praise God from whom ALL blessings flow.  We have been eagerly awaiting the birth of our next grand baby.  Gabriel and his wife moved to the Plain Community only 4 months ago, already 5 months pregnant. They hired a mid-wife to deliver the baby in their cabin.

Apparently this baby had other plans.  This is baby number 4 for them.  Her first baby was born by emergency C section.  The other two were born in a hospital naturally.

Yesterday morning Bethany started labor and didn't wake up Gabriel for over an hour. When she did wake him up she asked him to go call the midwife.  There is one phone in the community and it sits in the middle of the property in a little room.  He went and called the midwife and on the way back he dropped by the closest neighbor and asked one of the ladies to come get the children so Bethany could labor in peace.

No sooner had he gotten back and the labor became intense.  The baby was not going to wait for anyone! Here SHE came. Gabriel and Bethany delivered their newest baby together, just the two of them.

What an experience.  I praise God that the baby is healthy and beautiful and Mama is doing great.  I will be leaving shortly to go and love on our grand babies.  Baby girl has no name as of yet but when I return I will post a picture and a name to go with this precious little one.

Till then....
In Christ Alone,

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the ground each morning Satan says, "Oh crud, she's up".


  1. Congrats! Have a safe trip and have fun down there. Give Gabe and Bethany a hug from me:) Can't wait to see the new little one. What courageous people they are!
