Newsletter January 15, 2009

Happy New Year everyone!

We have awesome news. Our new year started out fairly normal but all that changed yesterday morning. We woke up a little family of three and by noon we were a family of four! We are getting a baby boy! His name is Kai!

We have been on a waiting list for exactly two years and we were about to decide that God might not intend for us to get another. Shock is just about the only way I know to describe the feeling when we got that call.

We are excited, but have had only two days to prepare, so it has been a whirlwind. He arrives tomorrow around 5pm Japan time (Friday, 16th). We will be in touch with news and pictures soon, and a new blog especially for Kai.

We appreciate your prayers for this transition. Hana is excited, but will surely face a lot of adjustment in the next days and weeks. We have a normal busy schedule of Bible studies, English classes, concerts, chapels, etc. So please pray for us!

Many blessings!
Rocky, Marla, Hana and Kai

You do know the verse for families with wee babes don't you? It's ICorinthians15:54. Behold I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep,but we shall all be changed,in a moment (well..maybe longer if it's the early hours and mom cant' find a clean diaper);)
Rejoicing with you all!
