What does this picture say?  



And it brings much celebration!

Yesterday was a big day for our Mattaw family.  It was the celebration of ONE YEAR since God led us to the right children and right house parents and formed a new family.  A house with the name Amani meaning "peace".  We rejoice in the family God has created and continues to grow.  I was so blessed to sit with our house parents of Amani house and recall what joy it was, the day we opened the doors to this home.  Grace shared the emotions her heart felt of welcoming home new children as though it was just yesterday.  She has shared testimony this past week of all our God is doing in our midst and in the lives of our children.  One is that, one of our girls suffered from terrible nightmares and could not sleep at night.  They were able to see where curses from her family had affected her and they broke them all in Jesus name.  Since then, she has slept through the night and Grace laughed sharing how she will even show up late to breakfast from sleep so hard.  Thank you Jesus!  Many more testimonies of Jesus bringing freedom and life to our children right now, hope to share more soon.  My heart rejoices in God alone.    

I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; For You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.  Psalm 4:8

While taking some chai Grace made, Joseph came out from resting and shared how he was attacked in the night with terrible chest problem.  We all prayed on him though and Jesus gave him relief and is healing him.  PRAISE GOD.  Grace said she knew it was an attack from the devil and we shall overcome by the blood of Jesus.  Yes ma'am we will!  I love their love and faith for the Lord and to see how much it has grown even more recently.  I spent most of the time in house three just sitting and loving on Chumba and Blessing.  Their personalities are coming out and joy fills their face.  Not much more I could of done to bring joy to my day!  Trying to get an update over on the Mattaw website about more of the story to celebrating house three family being together for a year now.  So check it out soon... mattawchildren.com.    

"For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard"  Act 4:20

Jammin out to this song today.  Reminds me of blaring it with Keela and Anna, worshipping Jesus in the good and the bad this past summer.  Today, I definitely have 10,000 for my heart to find to bless His name.  

"For all your goodness, I will keep on singing, 10,000 reasons for my heart to find.  BLESS the Lord oh my soul, worship His holy name.  Sing like never before, oh my soul.  I worship Your holy name."
