Update on Markley Family

Thank you to all who have been praying for our precious family. We have recieved an update email from them thanking everyone for praying and letting us know that April has been released from the hospital there in Cairns and they are all together as a family. They are enjoying being together after such a quick rush to Australia.
They will wait a week there near the hospital and then meet with the doctors to discuss whether or not they should fly home to the states to deliver the baby. Our hearts LONG for them to come home, but we KNOW that God is in control and has a perfect plan, even though we do not know it yet. So, for now, we wait a bit longer before we know the next step for them. Please continue to pray for them. For rest and peace in what lies ahead for them. Please keep Jordan and Judah in your prayers, it can be hard to be so young and all of a sudden have so much change. We personally KNOW the power of prayer and the peace that comes directly from God during a stressful and scary time as a family, because of fellow believers and sisters in Christ praying when you are too weary to pray yourselves. Love to you all.
Thank you again for your prayers!

We ask you to pray for our family, Edwin's older sister, April and her husband Jeremiah and two sons, Jordan and Judah. April and Jeremiah are missionaries with New Tribes Mission and are working among the Dinagant tribal people of Papua New Guinea. April is 29 weeks pregnant and within the last 24 hours has had to pack up the family and leave their tribal location by emergency medical transportation, a small plane, by orders of the Mission doctor there in PNG.
After viewing an ultrasound along with other signs of complications, April along with her family are now in Cains, Australia at a hospital awaiting instructions from the doctor as to what she should do. The baby IS FINE and healthy and April is doing OK. She called us last night from Australia and sounded very peaceful knowing that God is in control of her health and the baby's. They need to make a descision as to whether or not she will be able to travel back to PNG and continue in her pregnancy there, stay in Australia, (which is equipped with all the medical equipment needed for mom and baby) or fly home to America and be near a large hospital ready and equipped to care for the baby if born early.
The reason for April's sudden trip to Australia is due to the lack of emergency medical equipment in PNG. She is for now settled in at the hospital there in Cains. April's placenta is detaching and with that comes decisions, as I wrote, in regards to what they should do for both Mom and Baby's safety and for the family as a whole.
We LOVE them all so very much and our hearts long for them to come home, to be near us so that we can help with the boys and help in any other ways possible. We want them near to support and love on them. But, God has them miles away from us during this time, to grow us in our faith, to entrust their family to His precious HAND in complete control of the situation.
Please PRAY for wisdom in decision making and for guidance in the doctor's advice to them. They are great examples of TRUST in God and we praise Him that they cling to God for strength. Join us in uplifting them before the Lord during this time. As soon as we know any more in regards to their plans, we will let you all know.
Thank you for your prayers for the Markley family.

My boys...

My sweet and such a priceless picture.
My heart is so blessed and happy with the sight of my "men" all together. I praise God for His many blessings and for His grace towards us in the privilege of raising our two sons. We have greatly enjoyed our first week with little Owen and pray for many more together as a family. We do thank God for every precious moment we have together. God is good and GREATLY to be PRAISED. So take time to PRAISE HIM today for ALL He has done...the blessing of family and the blessing of HIS SON, Jesus, who paid our price for sin and made a way for salvation.
I thank you Father for my sons, but also for the precious life of your son, Jesus.
The girls will often end their prayers with..."but most of all, thank you for Jesus..." they have learned this precious truth by the example of their daddy praying that way.
May we never loose sight of thankfulness towards our Father God for the blessing of HIS SON...
Enjoy your families today and give lots of hugs...

Proud Brother and Sisters

We LOVE seeing Ez man and Owen together.....melts our hearts!
Gabby LOVES her little brother....she really can't get enough holding time!
Ellie, dressed as a princess for the day :) loves to snuggle "the new baby". She still calls him that, she has to get used to his name, I guess! :)
Owen is so tiny, he fits inside Ellie's baby doll carrier! She thinks this is pretty cool! :)

What a blessing to bring our little guy HOME!!! He is doing great! We wanted to show you a picture of him with his eyes wide open...and YES, we think he looks like his big sister Ellie :) (Many have asked and commented on him looking Ellie, we agree!)
