Its a girl!

I had an ultrasound sone last week. We were totally expecting the Dr. to tell us about the baby boy we were going to have. We even had a name chosen; Samuel Taylor Arias, named for my father in law and Hudson Taylor. Imagine my extreme shock when the Dr. says to me "feh-mahl" I stared at him, wondering just what was he trying to say. He repeated "feh-mahl". I concentrated really hard. Then it came to me, "Female"!!!! A girl? We weren't expecting a girl! Of course we were all mostly pleased. All but Ronnie, who really wanted a brother.

Oh well, all is well and Baby is healthy.

Church is doing remarkably well. We had 116 on Sunday.

Its still raining.

We are still waiting for Customs to release our stuff.

Keep praying for your missionaries all around the world

I was *so excited* when I saw in my Bloglines, that you had updated!

Congratulations! And I'm so glad she is healthy. (o: When is she due?

So good to hear your church is doing well but I'm sorry to hear that you still don't have your container.

Blessings and Hugs!

I am so glad to hear that all in well and that you are having a girl (sorry Ronnie).
Any idea when your stuff will be released from customs? I am praying for you and your growing family.

I thought my last one would be a girl. I had the name Samantha all ready . . had to scramble around to find a boys name I liked.
