“For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace” (Isa. 9:6 NASB).
With these words the prophet Isaiah, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, foretold the incredible way that the Messiah would come into the world. Christmas is a wonderful time to remember and rekindle our amazement of God’s great love shown in the gift of His one and only Son, Jesus. This Christmas our family has a wonderful reminder of that amazing love in the birth of our third child, John Robert Wells. It is hard to imagine the Creator of the universe coming to earth as a little tiny baby, so helpless and weak, so extraordinary, and yet at the same time so common. He came into this world the very same way all of us came, as a helpless baby. In fact, if the angels had not announced his birth or the star shown in the east, no one probably would have noticed His coming. He came in humility that He might save, but He will one day return in power to reign. I pray we will all be filled with wonder and awe of His love toward us this Christmas.
Our time in Thailand for the birth of baby John has been one answered prayer after another. The birth went very well, we made it to the hospital an hour before the birth! Christiana was re-admitted to the hospital for two days for post delivery complications but is now doing well. We are so blessed to have Christiana’s mom here with us, and now joined by her dad for Christmas!
Thank you all for your prayers on our behalf.
Nathan and Christiana
Ava, Paton, and John
