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.

Visit with Evelyn's Great uncle Philip

Today we had the privilege to meet and visit with Evelyn's great-uncle Philip. This was a special time because Granduncle Philip is over 90 years old.

I first heard about this Granduncle of Evelyn's this past January when I was admiring some Chinese Scripture calligraphy he did many years ago when he was a young man. The verse that he wrote was Ephesians 6:2-3. "Honor thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth." It is an incredible testimony to God's faithfulness that the man who wrote this in his youth lives still today in his nineties!
