1 0ctober

Joseph has been putting on weight steadily over the last few days and now weighs just over 1.700 kgs (about 3 pounds 11 ounces I think). It is wonderful to see him developing some chubbiness where before he was so thin.

His general health is improving hand in hand with his weight gain and a couple of days ago he was moved into the ward next door !! This is a sure sign that his health is improving and we were pleasantly taken aback by the move ! The healthier the babies are the further up they move until one day Joseph will go right out of the door and straight home !!!

All the nurses know that christians are praying for Joseph around the world and my hope is that they will associate God's invisible hand with his progress. He hasn't had the MRI scan yet and we continue to entrust the repair of his brain to God in prayer. In the meantime, he is acting like a normal little baby boy who lets us know when it's time for his next feed and likes nothing more than to fall asleep snuggled up in the arms of his mum or dad.

We thank God for Joseph and for all who have prayed for him so far. I will try to upload a recent picture sometime this week.

God bless you all for your faithfulness and prayers.

It is very encouraging to see the progress Joseph is making, but more importantly to know that God is working in his little life. I am praying for the doctors and nurses, too, that they will see beyond a shadow of a doubt that it is God who is doing the work, and that they will come to accept His gift of eternal life.

I saw Joseph in church lately. He has been placed in the care of Jesus Christ. Prayer , love and medical care is his chance of improving. I continue to pray for Joseph.
