Miriam Clare Parnell

As most of our readers have hopefully heard, on the 4 Sept we welcomed into the world Miriam Clare Parnell. She was born in the Wallingford maternity unit, weighing 7lbs 14oz at 3.12am.
The last two weeks have been a lot of fun, a lot of tiredness as the 3 of us get used to being 4, and a lot of busyness as the prospect of returning to Nepal starts to loom large. Samuel has adapted very well to being a big brother and is very interested in Miriam and very keen for her to be part of all we do.

We are finding it is a lot different having 2 instead of just 1 as the times for rest when the baby sleeps are not usually an option as Samuel is up, and the time Samuel is asleep is often the time Miriam chooses to be awake.

We are now visiting churches again as part of our home assignment, starting this weekend with our home church of Toxteth Tabernacle in Liverpool. After that it’s just 3 weeks until we fly back to Kathmandu on the 17th October, so life is busy getting everything prepared ready for our return.

Thank you to all of you who have sent cards and greetings, the many cards now adorn our lounge here in Didcot. We know we won’t get to see very many of you before we return, but thank you for your thoughts and prayers over the last few weeks and as we prepare to head back to Nepal.

If you haven't already heard Nepal experienced a significant earthquake over the weekend. Thankfully, our friends there are all safe and sound, but there was some loss of life.

We have added a bunch of photos to Facebook. You don't have to be on Facebook to view this photos, so just click the links below. The two albums are pretty similar, although there are some different photos in each.
