On July 11 at 10:15 pm, Avalyn Kay Schaller was born to Bob and Natalie (Tulip Center).
“Avalyn means ‘Beautiful breath of life,’ which means quite a lot to us during this season in our lives! Wanted to give her the middle name of Grace or Hope or Faith. Her mother is a beautiful display of all of those so I insisted the middle name be after Natalie whose middle name is Kay!” – Bob
In the midst of Bob’s chemo rounds, and while they were in limbo, without housing (waiting for Tulip Center to get done), God blessed the Schallers with new life. And He reminded us all that there is hope and beauty and joy in even the most difficult of trials.
So, in August, we got together to celebrate this beautiful breath of life with a special baby shower!
Please continue praying for Bob and Natalie, their new baby and two year-old Grant. They have started to move in to Tulip Center now and are transitioning into life there. Also, Bob’s recent scan was clear (praise God!), and he has started a new teaching job in Storm Lake.
Thank you for standing with this family and continuing to support them in prayer.
