We noticed that in our little Day-by-Day pocket calendar book that today, May 2, is Baby Day! We decided it would be a good day to dedicate babies. The two little ones that were dedicated by their parents today are sweet gifts from God.
Baby John (left) is the son of one of our student pastors, Pastor Gideon. His wife is one of the Sunday School teachers for our children at Black Sand Church. All three of them are planning to participate in our mission outreach to the island of Tanna in June/July.
Baby Anni (right) is John's cousin. Gideon and Anni's father, Ken, are brothers. Baby Anni was born approximately 6 weeks early. The Lord has watched over her growth and development and we praise him that this little one is thriving and happy! Ken leads our church in a missions study on the last Sunday of each month. He is planning to join the outreach to Tanna this summer as well.
We praise the Lord for these little babies who are growing up in the church. Please join us in praying for God's grace and leading throughout their lives and for godly wisdom for their parents.
"Don't you see that children are God's best gift?
The fruit of the womb his generous legacy?
Like a warrior's fistful of arrows
are the children of a vigorous youth.
Oh how blessed are you parents,
with your quivers full of children!"
~Psalm 127:3-4, The Message
