We just received a wonderful call from our good friends the Bates in Tennessee. We rejoiced with them when we heard the news: their 18th child is on the way!
The love that Gil & Kelly Bates have for children is reflected in the love that each of their children have for each other. May the Lord bless them with many more! “Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD:
and the fruit of the womb is his reward” (Psalm 127:3).
