Since I don't know how to "post pictures" here, I hope this works.
My good friends Mitch and Lisa Merwin (in Portland, Oregon) have welcomed their first child into the world last Friday evening, September 15th. Micah Levi Merwin captured his parents hearts long before he weighed in at 7 lbs, 6 ounces. He stands (or lies) tall at 22 inches right now.
Mitch and I have been friends for more than three years. He and I became very close while he was a student at the Moody Bible Institute here in Chicago, and attended Chicago Tabernacle at the same time that I was attending there.
Mitch is a very, very special man. He served in the United States Air Force for several years as a reservist, and was deployed to Iraq twice. He has served both God and country with distinction, humility, and a great passion.
He and Lisa feel God's call to be missionaries somewhere in the near future. They will be wonderful--wherever they serve, and in whatever capacity they are called to serve.
And now we have a new "nephew"--little Micah.
Ain't he adorable?
