A Testament to Faith...

and that is what we named her! Many of you may remember meeting Tina in an earlier blog. Her story is one of God's mercy, grace and goodness. Many did not believe that Tina would be able to deliver a healthy baby. Doctors told her the baby would be lame and probably die, but God had other plans!
This little miracle was born on September 27th, not sure how much she weighs or how long she is, but we know for sure she is a miracle. She was born at home in the middle of the night, much to the surprise of everyone in the house. There are still family members who don't believe that she can exist so many plan on coming by over the next few weeks to witness this child.
Tina asked us to name her new baby, it was both an honor and privilege. Naming a baby, not your own, can be stressful! But, her name came easily as we asked for God's help. You see, Tina has shown great faith since the car accident. Through the loss of her husband. Through her life changing illness. Through her disability. Tina can see God at work. Now she has an opportunity not only to share her faith with her family and others, but to share her precious baby Faith, as a testament to the awesome power, love and mercy of our Heavenly Father.
"I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Jesus Christ." Philemon :6
