Our ZOE Ohana just got bigger! Last month we welcomed the newest member of the ZOE brood, Allison Jessie Yu, born April 20th at 11:30 p.m., tipping the scales at 7 pounds, 5 ounces and measuring 19.3 inches.
Baby Alli is the youngest child of David and Ester Yu, also our newest missionary family to arrive in Thailand. Alli is a delight to her older brothers Ian (6) and Eli (3).
The Yu Family joined us last August from California where David was serving as an associate pastor at their home church, Immanuel Bible Church. Before Ester was a stay-at-home mom, she worked as a teacher for Santa Clara County’s juvenile hall and was a social worker and program administrator for Children’s Home Society of California. As they prepared to make the move to Chiang Mai, the Yus found out that they would be blessed with their third child. A less faithful couple might have changed their plans, but not Dave and Ester! An amazing family and a very brave mother: epidurals are not allowed in Chiang Mai!
Welcome Allison, our newest MK (missionary kid)! We are so happy you’ve joined us and we are looking forward to getting to know you and sharing in this incredible adventure and journey called life!
