The Birth of Our Daughter, Elisabeth

Dear Friends,

My wife and I would like to share our joy with you for the birth of our daughter, Elisabeth! She was born this morning 23rd November 2009 at 11 am, at 39 weeks gestation, weighing 3 kg. She cried immediately and within a couple of minutes she was already breast-feeding.

We are so thankful to God for his wonderful gift; we now dedicate her to Him. Our desire is that she may grow to know and love the Lord Jesus Christ, her Saviour.

Her name, Elisabeth, means ‘The Promise of My God’ – a reminder that God promises eternal life to all of us who believe in His Son. Praise His holy name!

Joe, Joanne ... John and ELIZABETH
