The Asia-Pacific Region welcomes two new MKs to the Missionary family. Tabea (Tuh-bay-uh) Betsy weighing 4 lbs 10 ozs and Naomi Katherine weighing 4 lbs 7 ozs, fraternal twins, made their entrance into the family of Dr. Ben and Katherine Radcliffe on February 8th, joining big brothers Simeon and Matthias. The girls’ middle names are in honor of their two precious grandmas.
Dr. Ben and his family have been serving at the Nazarene Hospital in Kudjip, PNG as a Surgeon alongside his father Dr. Jim Radcliffe for the past year, and were in the US for the delivery. See more of their story here.
The girls are in the NICU at the moment for minimal support. Please lift them in prayer for strength and stamina in the days ahead.
*** Update- 10 March 2016
A month after the twins were born, Ben gives us an update on the girls:
” We are praising the Lord for Tabea and Naomi’s release from the NICU after twenty-eight days! We are thrilled to have them healthy and home.”
He is also praising God that his wife Katherine is recovering well from emergency surgery. It had been truly a busy month for the Radcliffes, and we are delighted that everyone is doing well. Thank you very much for your prayers!
