First church baby

We are delighted to announce that Emy has given birth to baby Isaias Stefano, our first church baby we are all so thrilled!!

Isaias is only a few days old but has been found to have high sodium levels in his blood
He has been moved into the neonatal intensive care unit , Emy remains on the postnatal ward and is only allowed to see him briefly every 3 hours when she feeds him. His is not allowed contact with his father Samuel or his 7 year old sister Eileen.

Visiting them in hospital today reminded us of the huge differences in maternity care between the UK and Peru!

Please pray for both Emy and Isaias .

Praise God for this miracle of new life!

How wonderful to be able to share the joy of a new life - we will pray for the family that they will be united and the for the hospital staff that they will have the wisdom to know how to treat him.
