God is in the Miracle-Making Business

Our friends Matt & Stacey Ayars are missionaries in Haiti and posted this (short) story on their blog. It is an ABSOLUTE MUST-READ!

Ricky did find the story in the news, with the media's "unbiased" take on it:
  • Here is possibly the most detailed story, from The Guardian in England.
  • This story from The Times, also in England, mentions fewer details about the miracle, but seems to imply that the survivor could've been "hallucinating." The next day, The Times ran another story, which left out the interesting part of the miracle and said, "The circumstances of Monsigrace's rescue remain mysterious."
  • This one from CNN, says that the man "sounded confused."
Note: This week's OB/GYN appointment showed me to be 4 cm dilated and 50-70% effaced already! Also, we got our new computer and I am still struggling to get comfortable with using it. I am growing larger so quickly now (hello stretchmarks-that-were-not-there-yesterday) that we've had to veto leaving the house except for necessary doctor's appointments. I am extremely exhausted all the time, which is rumored to be the body's way of preparing for the hard work of labor :) I've supposedly been in early labor for weeks now, but the contractions have been bearable and inconsistent thus far. I officially weigh more than Ricky (by .7 pounds), and he's rubbing it in. Good husband, isn't he?
