Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow

Nathan and Melanie had a doctor’s appointment this afternoon, and as you know from Nathan’s last blog post, they have been concerned about this pregnancy and some of the warning signs. They went in to the visit expecting bad news, but our hearts are so full of joy and thankfulness: they heard Baby Max’s heartbeat! What a thrill. They’ve heard it several times before but over the last week or two, they’ve been concerned the pregnancy was in trouble. For now, little Baby Max is alive and kicking! Such a thrill :-). Melanie will continue to stay down, and we’re involved quite a bit with helping them while Melanie is on bed rest.

Thank you for praying, and we would greatly appreciate your continued prayers!

Sarah for all the rest

“Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts” (Psalms 145:3-4).
