Dear Friends & Family,
I just wanted to write to you to let you know of our latest news. I’ve been having some steady contractions over the past couple of days. I am now completely uncomfortable and ready to have this baby! Please be praying for me/us during this time in that this will be our first experience with having a baby overseas. I am fairly apprehensive about this in that they do many things differently as far as child birth is concerned. Pushing hard on the mothers belly to help the baby to be born, to only name one. Not to mention the language barrier that we’ll be facing!
On the brighter side of things my little sister, Leah, is coming for a visit! :) She has been planing this trip for a while to help with the new baby, and help take on some of my responsibilities to help me recover and then to free me up a bit for language & culture study. Please be praying for her trip and big adjustment to life here when she arrives on the 28 (3 more days!) of this month. Please also pray that this baby can hold off a while longer until she gets her!!! :)
Because of His love for us,~Ruth
P.S. Ben is excited that the birthing center has WiFi. It must be a guy thing...
