a new life

welcome to the world little one

Midwives extraordinaire- Beth M, Jonna H, and Joanna T.  helped, comforted, encouraged, and prayed as momma, Merimene, delivered her healthy baby boy last night.

Beth comforts Merimene
Merimene is likely the only woman in Port au Prince, Haiti that gave birth last night with three loving and skilled people attending to her every need. What an awesome thing for her to receive that attention and care.

There is no doubt that great challenge and hardship lie ahead for Merimene and her precious son.  

Our prayers today are for a future filled with hope and provision and peace.

We all need that.
