Dear Friends and Family,

Praise God with us! Luke Timothy was born this morning, 29 January, at 6:15 AM local time (Cairns, Australia). Johanna and Luke are doing great! God is so very good. Johanna’s labor and delivery went as well as you could ask for. Luke weighed in at 7lbs 9ozs and measured 20 1/4in long. Thank you so much for praying.

In His hands,
Kurt (for Johanna, Kassia, and Luke Metzger)
