Little Chris's Sister Is On Her Way!
This is the very best news I've heard out of Nigeria for a few weeks -- I can hardly contain my excitement!!! Daniel, little Chris's father, called just now to say that his wife has begun her labor. Please pray for a safe delivery that results in a healthy mom and baby. Right now it's during the curfew (8:30 pm there), but they are being checked on by dear friends Nurse Lauretta and Doctor Ben. We really want the baby to be born in a hospital in case a C-Section is needed (it was for little Chris's delivery), so hopefully the baby will hold on until 6 am.
Our dear friend Holly, from the U.S., is traveling to Nigeria at the end of this week so I hope very soon to have and share photos of this new family of four.
(Photos are of the Faith Alive birthing unit, complete with modern multi-head shower. The baby may or may not be born there.)
