With praise to God and gratitude in our our hearts, we are pleased to let you know that Marie-Toni Tinshu was born on March 3, 2008 at 7:38pm South Africa Time (6:38pm Cameroon time):
Weight = 2.6kg
Height = 49cm
Head = 31cm
Despite the limited access we hav to internet and the nature of our studies, we are still determined to keep you informed.
Marie-Toni is a miracle baby because she was coming to the outside world without labour pains and so the doctors had to do a C-Section on Marceline for her to be out!! They were discharged from the Pretoria Academic (University) Hospital on March 5 and they are home enjoying the Lord and doing very well. Marceline is recovering very fast from the surgery.
Marie Catto is the wife of Dr. Graham and she has been so gracious to us since we arrived here. When Marceline felt uneasy and I called Paul, he came with his wife Toni (nurse) who was so help and knew exactly what to do with the prolapsing cord that saved the baby’s life. That is why the baby’s first name is Marie-Toni, just in case you were wondering why that name.
Her middle name will be Wonderwerk meaning Miracle in Afrikaans. While I was at home wondering what her middle name should be, I felt God say Miracle. The following day when I went to the hospital, Marceline said, why can’t the child’s name be Miracle in Afrikaans. That was a perfect confirmation. So, the full name will be Marie-Toni Wonderwerk Tinshu. Isn’t that lovely!!
Wouldn’t you join us in praising the Lord for this wonderful Miracle!
I trust the Lord to be able to share other ministry prayer needs with you in the days ahead, God-willing.
