Prayers for Chemai & Augustine...

I am writing this posting 8pm on the 17th (here in Australia) and tomorrow morning, any time after 8.30am, Chemai will finally met her Augustine Gerard after a most arduous journey for both of them.

Little Augustine almost made his entrance at 22weeks - too early for survival and he threatened to, many times after that.

They have both been carried in prayer and by sacrifices, offered by so many people, here in Australia but also overseas, particularly through the power-thread of support at 4 Real - if you have the time, follow this extrodinary thread of love, encouragement and PRAYER!

It has has deeply affected me, the way so many dear people have reached out in love and made an extrodinary difference.

And so tomorrow 6.30pm US time (on their 17th) 9.30am Aus daylight savings time and 8.30am our time (non daylight savings) - prayers would be gratefully appreciated, asking that all goes well for both mum and bubs with the ceasar and that I will be able to post some beautiful photos, showing everyone, the fruit of many, many prayers over the last 4 months.

Anne -- I will be at Church tonight for a meeting, so will assuredly light a candle for Chemai and Augustine! Thanks so much for keeping us updated (and for figuring out the time differences!)

You're a rare jewel, Anne!

We've been praying for Chemai and Augustine at our house. We are very happy that the blessed day has arrived!

Prayers offered. May she be holding her beautiful son and having a happy (morphine free) Christmas.

God bless

Just reading this thread and shedding happy tears of blessed amazement.

Both you and Chemai and little Augustine are treasures!
