JOANNA ECHEZURIA, our financial assistant, had her baby on January 10th! Isaac Marchese was welcomed by Joanna and her husband, Vicente, on Friday evening after a bit of a scare and a c-section. All is well, and although he arrived early, he weighed 6 lbs., 1 oz. and is 19 inches long. He’s a handsome little guy with a lot of hair! Baby and Mama are doing well and went home on Tuesday. We will keep them in our prayers as Joanna recovers and they adjust to their new routine as a family of 3! Kim Swinko, our former financial assistant, has been filling in while Joanna is on maternity leave. We are very appreciative that she could step in so quickly and keep things running smoothly. God provides!
