Thomas was Baptized

We are rejoicing over news from Taiwan. Here is an excerpt from last week's Delaney Missionary Newsletter:

"GOOD NEWS! Rejoice with us! Thomas was baptized on Sunday morning, and his unsaved mother agreed to come and witness this special event. You may recall that Thomas is the young man whom Brother Tad Wychopen and our son befriended while playing basketball one afternoon in early January. That same day Thomas came to church, and he has never stopped coming. Thomas is 17 years old, and he trusted the Lord as his Savior during the special meetings in May, when Stephen Wesco came and conducted his chalk drawings. Thomas is an only child from a single-parent home, and his mother needs the Lord. Please pray for the continued spiritual development of this young man."

The Birth of Faith Anna Wesco

Faith Anna Wesco was born at home this past week. She weighed 7 pounds, 11 ounces, and measured 21 inches long. She is truly a precious gift from God!

Faith—We pray that our daughter will grow and put her personal faith in her Creator God the Lord Jesus Christ. We pray that throughout all her life she would walk by faith fully depending upon God for His grace and mercy.

Anna—We pray that our daughter will follow the example of the biblical Anna in Luke 2:36-38 who waited faithfully for the redemption of the Lord and proclaimed the Savior when she met him. We pray that our precious little girl will faithfully proclaim the Saviour to the world!

The name “Anna” is the Greek form of the Hebrew name “Hannah” which means “grace.” Our little girl’s name is a constant reminder that “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).

Thankful Mommy and Daddy with Faith shortly after delivery.

Happy Grandparents!

Faith with Grandma & Grandpa Wesco and Great Grandma & Great Grandpa.
