Waiting & Waiting &.......

Ok, I figured I should write an update or you would start to feel left out...but truth be told....there is not much happening here (which is kind of a good thing I guess). Kristen had a OB check up today, and after a week of walking around, she is still not even close (you know what I mean)! This is a good thing because that means Lincoln shouldn't be coming earlier than expected which helps out with travel plans for family. Also some of the critical people in charge are out of town until Sunday (like the OB & Cardiologists...that would be BAD!!)

All is well with us though! This time has been a blessing for us, enabling us to enjoy each other and take some time to visit some sites down here. Kristen and I have a place we like to go when we want to get out of the house. There is a grassy hill just around the corner from where we are staying that is at the end of one of the runways at LAX. The planes are literally 50' over our head seconds before they land. Why I'm sharing this with you...I dunno?...It's kinda cool though...here is a pic I took.





This is the family we are staying with while we are down here. Ed & Jean Hayes have truly been a blessing to us. They too had a grandchild that was in the hospital for 4 months and is doing great! So it has been awesome to see how God has placed them in our lives & used them to minister to us while we are here.

Lincoln is kickin like crazy...He wants out! Little does he know the road ahead...It is getting very tense and we are very nervous as we met with Dr's today and toured the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit). Well there probably wont be another update until Sunday night...so be praying hard! Looking forward to talking to you then!

Josh & Kristen,
You are on our minds and in our prayers as you await Lincoln's birth. We pray for God's protection of your physical hearts and His gracious peace for your emotional hearts in these days. We will keep checking for updates.

Hi Josh and Kristen,
This is a old, old friend of Kristen's (Jen Eggenberger). It is funny how God works, we just found out about you and Lincoln. Last year God put it on my heart to pray for you after watching an Oprah. That show really convicted me of how faithful you were to God, and how my little family needed to take a lesson from the light shining in you guys. I have been doing that, then this week my Mom got an email from a friend at Santa Rosa Bible, it was talking about you and the new baby. We are all praying for Kristen's health, and Lincoln's health. Love,
Jen Duerksen

Josh & Kristen,

You don't know me, but I was informed about your situation by someone at SRBC. I knew your sister at RVC. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I am praying for all three of you. I am so glad we can trust the Lord during difficult times like these.

In Christ,
Rebecca Harder

Neat picture! Glad you've found a relaxing place to talk and pray and wait....you are in our hearts and as our Lord says to do, we are praying without ceasing...putting our requests before the Throne as many others are also.

God's peace be with you all!

With love,

Kristen & Josh,
We just wanted to let you know you and Lincoln will be in our prayers; that God will guide the doctors as they care for both of you.
