Prayers for a baby on the way

Please pray for a wonderful young couple, J. and E., as they await the arrival of their first child. If E. did not go into labor today, there will be an induction tomorrow.

We help sponsor this couple, (they are FOCUS missionaries) and can honestly say that they are two of the most upbeat, inspiring young Catholics we've ever met. They were married last July. I knew that, open to life as they are, they'd be expecting quickly, and now the day has arrived. Please keep them in your prayers tomorrow as they look forward to meeting their new baby.

And, if you are inspired to sponsor a missionary, contact FOCUS or, email me for more info. J. and E. could use a few more sponsors, as they are one of the first "missionary couples" and obviously will have more expenses than the typical single missionary. This is one donation that we have never questioned. We've been privy to the spiritual fruits, and really believe FOCUS is a terrific organization.

Thank you! They delivered a beautiful little baby girl, and all are doing well.
Thanks be to God!
