Oh that God would give every mother a vision of the glory and splendor of the work that is given to her when a babe is place in her bosom to be nursed and trained! Could she have but one glimpse in to the future of that life as it reaches on into eternity; could she look into it's soul to see its possibilities; could she be made to understand her own personal responsibility for the training of this child, for the development of its life, and for its destiny,--she would see that in all God's world there is no other work so noble and so worthy of her best powers, and she would commit to no others hands the sacred and holy trust given to her." -JR Miller

Its so amazing when God answers prayer isn't it?

We have been praying for a new house for a number of years, our current one has leaked since we lived in it (6 years) and has got worse, also had mice and just wasn't big enough. We prayed and have had a number of obstacles, it's been a time of learning and leaning on God's grace. A time to learn contentment that doesn't depend on circumstances and a time to hold on to the fact that God would provide for us. 

I am so grateful that there are such wonderful christians out there who are willing to listen to God and to live out their faith in a practical way.

Our landlord was being difficult and would not give us a reference, I was beginning to feel like we would never get out of the house but then God provided. Through my Dad and through fellow believers. We did not need a reference and are now in the process of packing and moving all our belongings into a new beautiful house - that doesn't leak and is bigger and will be so much more suitable for a family with 6 precious children.

We would appreciate your prayers as we move - its been 6 years since the last year and we have 4 more children than last time! And I will update with pics when possible

God bless
