New family

This past Friday was one to write down in the history of Mattaw Children's Village.  We welcomed home 12 new children and God created a new family.  It was a beautiful day.  The process of picking up the children and brining them home was one I'll have to sit and take time to write out.  I was in awe of the precious children that God would entrust us to.  The house parents were so excited to have the responsibility and privilege to love on the least of these and bring them in as their own children.  Orphan no longer, now children who have a family that loves and cares for them.  We're excited to see God work in their lives to bring them as one family in a way on He can do. More stories to bring to you about how this family came about.  A big thanks to all that helped make this happen.... to those who funded this house, those that came and built it, those that are already sponsoring some of these children, those that will respond to God's leading to sponsor these children, to those that helped refer these children, those that prayed for these children before they even knew who they'd be and to our house parents who will raise these children to be "oaks of righteousness, a planing(mattaw) of the Lord, for the display of his splendor".  We are grateful.
