Hendrick John Beeke

Our son Calvin and his wife Laura received their third child and first son on this past Lord’s Day. Hendrick John, named in honor of his two paternal great-grandparents (my wife’s father and my father), weighed in at two ounces shy of ten pounds. Mother and son are both doing very well and are home already. I had the privilege of seeing our sixth grandchild after preaching on Lord’s Day evening—sadly, only one visitor was allowed—but my Queen got to spend time with him yesterday.

Pray with us that Hendrick will grow up as a truly converted covenant child who hates sin and loves Christ and becomes early on a stalwart son of Christ’s bride, His glorious church. The goodness of God is just overwhelming—again! Two of our three children have now had children this year with our third child expecting a child in November. I never would have dreamed that all of our children would have children in one year, D.V. God truly does “exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think” (Eph. 3:20), confirming His own word, “Thou shalt see thy children’s children, and peace upon Israel” (Ps. 128:6).

Soli Deo gloria!
