DSC_2275 Christ the Word rejoices in God having added three precious babies to our midst this week. 

Jasmine and Joy Drees are home from Florida, arriving today from Florida six weeks after birth, including four weeks of hospitalization and two weeks awaiting adoption approvals. The twins join Paul and Renee Drees together with siblings Josiah, Madalyn, Sam, Summer and Lily. We rejoice that Joy and Jasmine are healthy, and that the obstacles that hindered their coming home have been removed. God be praised.

2011-08-26 14.37.40 We're also thrilled to welcome Norton Zion Clark to our family. Norton, son of Kevin and Jennifer Clark and younger brother of Wolfgang, Stella and Joaquin, is a signal to me of what a precious gift it is when God allows a pastor to serve in one location for multiple decades. Norton's parents once played with Cheryl's and my babies. Now my children play with the Clark's babies. Joy. (DB)
