Today is Katie Gardner’s birthday. She is our daughter in law and Vision’s missionary to Peru. She and David are serving in Arequipa, Peru. Katie is having a difficult pregnancy because of issues with her thyroid. She heard the baby’s heartbeat yesterday.
I ask you to be praying for her always but especially over the next 7 to 8 months until the baby is born healthy.
Katie has been a tremendous blessing to our family. She has made a wonderful wife for David. She will be a terrific mother. She loves God and wants to see God use her and her family. She has learned Spanish far better than most. She is a joy to be around..
Katie, we love you. We wish you a very Happy Birthday and God’s richest blessings on you.
I want you to know that Mom and I think you are the greatest. We are very proud of you. We thank God for sending you into our family. Thank you for loving our son. Thank you for loving the Lord Jesus more than anything else.
Thank you for learning to adapt to another culture. Thank you for working at learning another language. Thank you for having a good attitude through all of that.
Happy Birthday. We love you very much.
