We have sent messages in the past, asking you to pray for Jessica and the baby during the pregnancy. While she has not been born yet, we would like to thank you for these prayers. We believe God has answered these prayers.
We all thought our baby would be early and we had been faced with numerous complications related to the altitude. It had even been suggested that we go back to the states until after the birth. However, after much prayer we just couldn't get peace. Well not only has The Lord blessed us with a healthy baby but we have made it to an astounding 37 weeks and she is measuring larger than that. The greatest complication at this altitude is preterm labor and small babies. I was feeling disappointed that she isn't here yet but a friend told me, I know what we all expected but do you realize what a miracle it is for a foreigner to carry a baby to full term at this altitude? She
said out of all the cases documented at the embassy I am the only one with a full term (or almost full term) baby that is normal and healthy. That can only be explained by one thing. God! We had peace to come and we had peace to stay and He has showed His power not only to us but to the people at the American Embassy as well.
Everything we have faced problem wise, God has taken care of. We can't wait until the next leg of our journey begins.
Below is a photo we saw online that we thought worked well with this.
