For a prayer of thanksgiving for the birth of a healthy baby boy to Pastor & Mrs. (Lisa Radtke) Sam Powell. His name is Elliott James Powell, born today, March 23 at 7:58 AM by C-Section in Columbia, MO. "Little" Elliott weighed in at 9 lbs. 10 oz. and is 21-3/4" tall. Mother and baby are doing great. So is Dad.
Sam is the Associate Pastor at Trinity Lutheran Church in Jefferson City, MO. Sam is a 2010 graduate of Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. Sam & Lisa were our "tenants" (adopted kids) for 4 years while Sam was attending the Sem.
I have added several folks on the "cc" line here that know Sam &/or Lisa so they can share in this good news.
Thanks and God's peace on your day!
