7:00 am My neighbor went into labor. On the top of my bucket list has always been to be in a birth, other thank my own. My sisters always deliver when I am not in the States and the other 2 I was supposed to be in, we were on furlough. So, when my friend said I could go...I was excited! Brice agreed to take our 3 to work and for the next 8 hours I got to support a friend as she labored to bring her sweet baby into this world! Pictures to come as she is in special care at the hospital, pray for her to breathe well and come home soon, since she was early. And if you want to know what it's like in a 3rd world hospital, write and I can share:) It did make me very grateful for all the special care and cleanliness practices we have in the States for sure!
7:30 am our Brother John from the school baptized his uncle, whom he had been sharing his faith with! Glenroy is now our new brother!
And then, at 12:00pm O'Malley passed on to heaven. It's hard to comprehend one so young going so early. Continue to pray for his family. His funeral will be the Sunday after next.
And I am adding a photo of the retreat Brice and one of our Jamaican students went to. It is the Caribbean retreat held every 2 years. They both got to share and speak and recruit future students that week in Antigua. We loved hearing one of our own students share how WISE is shaping him.
