The Helgren's have their Lauren!

After much paryer and waiting the highly anticiapted of the newest Helgren baby has occured!
Joy and Kendall who are serving as missionaries in Zambia are delighted to have a new
daughter. Mommy and baby are doing well.
I, on the other hand, miss being there. Amy and I were at the
hospital shortly after Easton was born. This time we
both felt lonely. Missing being with our friend during this exciting time
was really hard. Amy and I consoled each other over chocolate croissants. This was
the desssert we delivered to Joy the last time she had a baby. It is a priveledge to know a missionary. It is an honor to be friends with missionaries. It is so lonely to be on the other side
of the world, without our missionaries. But God is good, and he knows what we each need.
I treasure my times with Joy and Kendall. Our families became so close while they lived here. We will be forever sisters who meet in the spiritual world, and hopefully God will allow
us to see each other again this side of heaven.
