A Dear Saint


It was so good to see one of our dear saints Bonnie Cleaver. She has spent many years as a missionary in Haiti. Due to her health she is now residing in Hobe Sound, Florida. Her heart still beats for missions. She recently told me that her and several other ladies often pray for us and many other missionaries during their ladies prayer meeting. She is definitely one of my missionary heros.

A Busy Man...

Why has there not been much blogging? Where are the pictures of Joseph and our family? What have we been up to? Well let me explain...

A few weeks ago my uncle stopped by to see Joseph. While he was there he told me his son Mike was looking for some summer help, he thought of me and wanted to know if I was interested in doing some work for about thirty days.

My curiosity was peaked as I was told what this job would involve. My cousin Mike works for Garst seed company. They sell many lines of hybrid seeds such as corn, alfalfa etc. My job would be to travel around Pennsylvania placing advertisement signs nearby Garst fields. The job sounded interesting, so I decided to give it a try.

I have been working for two weeks now, and I have enjoyed it very much. I was supplied with a Ford 250 truck, signs, posts and a list of dealers to get in contact with. It has involved a lot of traveling, reaching fields in Lancaster, State College, Lebanon and many other towns across Pa.

So why has the blogging been so lazy? Because I have been so busy. Posted by Picasa

Little Jospeh --- 3 weeks

Many of you have been wanting more and more pictures of Joseph. Well here is one of the latest. Here he is at three weeks!! He is such a good little boy. For awhile he had his night and days mixed up, often waking about 2 am starving and ready to eat. Now he is sleeping five hours straight through the night.
For our die hard blogger fans, more pictures will be on the way!! Keep looking!

Thanks

It's so hard to believe we are already in the middle of July. It seems like yesterday we were flying back to the states excited about the baby that was on the way. Now it's all said and done and Joseph is already two weeks old.

Though time has speedily been passing by, we have been enjoying every minute. Joseph has brought such a wonderful dimension to our life. He is growing stronger every day. He has already gained about a pound and a half since he was born. He is such a good boy. He makes some of the funniest faces when sleeps, I love to watch him. There is nothing like seeing him make big smiles with little dimples tucked in the corners. It just makes your heart explode with joy.

We want to say a big thank you for your many congratulations, gifts and cards for Joseph. We were just overwhelmed with kindness by so many wonderful friends and we want you to know we deeply appreciate it.

Baby Joseph Has Arrived!!

Joseph Zaid Kuhns
Born June 30, 2006 10:40 AM
Weighed 7lbs 9oz
18 inches long
June 30th will always be one of the best days of our live. There is absolutely nothing more miraculous and awe inspiring as the birth of a new little baby. It was incredible.
Hannah was scheduled for a c-section at about 9:30 AM. I was nervous and excited and just bursting with joy at everything that was taking place. I couldn't believe this day had finally come. She was prepped and ready for surgery and together we went to the operating room. I had to wait outside the door until everything was ready to begin the surgery. I was then told to come in and the procedure began. Hannah was excellent. She had been a little nauseated from the spinal but by the time the surgery began she was doing great. I held her hand and jumped my attention back and forth between her and the operation. It was amazing to watch. Then finally that special moment happened. Joseph was born. He didn't cry much at first. They quickly cleaned him up and had him under a heat lamp which seemed like seconds. Tears welled up in my eyes as I looked at a beautiful little baby boy. I will never forget that moment. God had given to us such a wonderful gift. I held him in my arms and brought him for Hannah to see. She was so happy. She had done so well through everything.
I was soon out the door with the baby headed off to the nursery to get him weighed and bathed while Hannah was taken to the recovery room. Both grandma's and Hannah's brother and sisters all watched through the windows as Joseph got all cleaned up. It was such a special time.
Both Hannah and the baby came through just fine. It wasn't too long before Hannah could join all the excitement. Visitors soon started stopping by bringing gifts and baloons. Everyone wanted to hold this new little guy. What an exciting day it was!! A joyful memory burned deep on our hearts. Thank God for this special little boy!
