Winnipeg here we come! Yesterday we had the joy of going and visiting our little grandson Andrew again. This means a trip to the city which is a 2 hour drive from our place. But these trips don't seem very long when you think of who there is waiting for us at the other end. Josh and Rebecca are very happy to see family come out to pay them a visit. Life in the city is foreign to them and something they are not used to.

Yesterday we got to the city around lunchtime,went out for lunch together and just spent sometime visiting with Josh and Rebecca. At 4 AJ was due for his feeding so we spent 1 1/2 hours at the hospital. Rebecca changed his diaper,while I tried to hold his soother in so he wouldn't cry to much. ( I even touched is soft skin.) The nurse handed him to Rebecca and has if he knew his mother's touch right away. Andrew settled right down and was so relaxed to hear and feel his mother's tender touch. It was so touching when Rebecca wanted to put Andy back to bed,he cried. It is so good to know that Andy recognizes who his parents are.

It was yesterday that I realized how small Andy really is. We went shopping and when looking even at the smallest clothes there are for newborns they are ways to big. Some of the smallest shoes we saw,well his feet would fit in there three times! He is very cute , that's the reason we keep coming back!

Some of the city sights near the hospital where Andrew is.

We also want to thank everyone who has been praying for us. We are so thankful the way things have been falling into place for Josh and Rebecca. We are especially grateful for the missionary couple who took Josh and Rebecca in and are allowing them to come and go as they need. We also need to remember this couple in our prayers as they are going through a very difficult time with their grandaugher. She is under going treatments and is in a lot of pain. She is only 2 years old and cannot understand why she has to suffer so much.

We too are enjoying these weekly trips to the big city. Like you say, the ride doesn't seem quite as long when you know who is waiting at the end.

We are very thankful for the couple that has opened their home and made it so comfortable for Josh and Rebecca to come and go as they need. Bless them Lord.

We will continue to pray for their little grandaughter, that must be so tough.
