Another warrior for God's kingdom.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Never underestimate the power of prayer.

Our dear, dear friends Greg and Ruth Bittner were blessed with their first child (Jack) in January 2001. They had wanted a second child for some time but, despite diligent prayer, it just hadn’t worked out.

Naturally, our human tendencies kick in when we pray so diligently for something but it just doesn’t happen. That is, we don’t necessarily question God’s judgment as much as we yearn to know His reasoning. I know Greg & Ruth had it on their hearts to have a second child. But when it didn’t happen as they expected they were just overwhelmed with that one simple question: Why?

In spite of that nagging question, they never wavered in their prayers.

As a result, I’m happy to report this evening that their prayers have finally been answered!!!

At approximately 9:30 am on Thursday, September 27, Andrew William Reagan Bittner was welcomed into this world!

Our sincere congrats, Greg & Ruth!!

You are a true testimony to the power of prayer!


Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise.
James 5:13

Was this a naturally conceived birth, or did they resort to medical (i.e fertility doctor) help? My wife and I have tried for years for our first and so far, our prayers have not been answered. Some nights, my poor wife cries herself to sleep about it.
