My Cousin Continued

Unfortunately I have to update that Zaila is currently being monitored at the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario, since she was born with fluid in her lungs. This should not be a serious problem, but please keep praying. . .



Zaila was born yesterday! So far all I know is the email I got from my cousin Erik:

Its 7 lbs and 5 oz right in the middle... her name is Zaila Grace and she popped at 4:20. Both the baby and the new mommy are doing great...

Technically this doesn't make me an aunt, but I think I still get to go by that name. . . yay! Thanks Jesus, and thank you guys for your prayers -- they are precious.

Sara and Zaila

Hey everyone,

Awesome to see the blog up and running! I have another request -- my cousin Sara is due to give birth to her first child (whom she's calling Zaila Grace) sometime in the next few days. She has had a hard time the last few years, but I love that grace is in her baby's name! Could you pray that God would help her through the emotional aspects of childbirth and her relationship with Steve, Zaila's father, and that He would keep Sara and Zaila safe and healthy? Also, that Sara would turn to Jesus for the support she needs to raise her daughter? Thanks so much for your prayers,

Testimony #1

A couple from Amsterdam that we prayed for a year ago, because they had 5 or 6 miscarriages, now have a healthy baby!!!!!

The history
I knew this couple from 5 years ago, when I was helping with a Christmas outreach for just two weeks. Another couple was helping there also, and the woman was pregnant, but more scared than happy, because it could be her third miscarriage. well, I haven't heard from that couple ever since. Until...

The prayer
One year ago, a woman from our own church stood up and spoke out loud in the meeting that we should pray for "this couple she knew from Amsterdam that had their fifth miscarriage".
I went up to her right after the meeting and I discovered this was actually that same couple. So I said:"Let's pray right now with just the two or three of us!". We did; we proclamed LIFE over this couple. Somehow I knew something was happening right there. But you know... a year goes by whithout thinking about it, and I kind of forgot the whole story.

The result
Yesterday a woman from our church said: "Elise, I've got some great news." That couple from Amsterdam that we prayed for a year ago, because they had 5 or 6 miscarriages, now have a healthy baby!!!!!

Request One

Hey Bloggers :)

I have a first prayer request to start things off -- I am trying to figure out a way to go on a mission trip during my mid-semester break in February. I have this idea to go to eastern Europe and possibly work in an orphanage. I don't know if it is God or me, but I am trying to figure that out. I have two possible connections who could help me find a way to do this. Please pray that I would know and follow God's will in this. Thanks!
