Another Holsby "Teebee" - Fika Time

Another Holsby “Teebee”

by Donna Schoon - Support Staff

There is always an extra measure of rejoicing when God sends another little life into our Holsby family. It is with particular joy that we announce the arrival of a son to Danny and Manuela Stephens.

NAME: Moses Arthur Stephens
DATE: 4 September 2012
TIME: 9:26 a.m.
WEIGHT: 4065 grams (about 8 lbs. 15 oz.)
LENGTH: 52 cm. (about 21 in.)

Our newest “Teebee” (a little Torchbearer) took his time making his entrance into the world. It took more than 24 hours after they arrived at the hospital before delivery took place. There were a few anxious moments at the very beginning before he gave his first cry. And then all was well! Praise the Lord!! What a precious little life. For this child, Danny and Manuela prayed, and the Lord gave them their petition (1 Samuel 1:27).


This child bears the name of a man in the Old Testament with whom God spoke face to face (Exodus 33:11). Our prayer is that little Moses Stephens will grow to know our Lord in intimate fashion and be one whom God will use in mighty ways.

May these words of Moses be a prayer from this little one as he grows up:

I pray …

show me now Your way,

that I may know You

[progressively become more deeply and intimately

acquainted with You]….

Exodus 33:13

Blessings on you, Danny and Manuela, as you nurture your son in the ways of our Lord!

About Donna Schoon - Support Staff

Being in ministry in and around Holsby for about half of my life has been a true joy and I’ve grown in the process. My role is smaller, but it is still an encouragement to be a part of the whole picture – doing a wee bit of teaching, participating with students in the Österliden outreach and hosting a family group during the school year. Correspondence with Holsby friends around the world, as well as other contacts, keeps my computer going many hours a week – as does keeping our home open to those who want to come. Our family includes 2 children, 5 grands, and 4 great-grands (with one on the way). Wally is my husband, and Psalm 70:4 is our verse.
