Andrew Paul Gardner born on October 13, 2006


Andrew was born at 10:17 pm, October 13, 2006, in Arequipa, Peru.  He weighed in at 8 pounds and just over 14 ounces.  He was 20.5 inches long.  He is in good health and so is his mother.  Thank you for praying.



Here we are looking through the window at a beautiful young boy.  He joins 8 other grand children and one more to be born in February.  Betty and I have been so blessed by God in thousands of ways.

A proud grandmother holding her baby just a few minutes after birth.  He looks so much like Jacob that it is shocking.  He also looks a lot like Andria.

The proud grandfather with the newest of nine grandchildren.  His newborn clothes almost didn’t fit him because he is so big.

Aunt Joy in her hospital get up as she helped deliver her newest nephew.  She knows everybody and got us a few extra privileges at the hospital like getting to hold him so soon.

Thank you so much for praying for all of us but especially for Andria, Andrew and Chris.  You are a great blessing and we love you.
