And now for all of you who are wondering what the Wissmann's hidden treasure is -- we are thrilled to announce that baby #13 is on the way!

We are all so excited, surprised, and thankful! The 2006 Wissmann Model isn't due to arrive until the end of September, so we still have waiting to do. And as you can imagine, our mealtime conversations are often filled with name suggestions and trying to figure out exactly how big the baby would be at 18 weeks, ect.... The wonder of a new 'tiny-but-growing' person is incredible and has caused us to marvel at the wisdom of our God all over again!

Mommy and baby are doing well (we heard the heartbeat last week!) and we would appreciate your continued prayers for them until the baby's safe arrival.

"For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother's womb.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well."
Psalms 139:13-14
