Story of my Life by Oatsvall Team | Edit Post
We love all SCC music and Scott has used one of Steven's songs for each of our girl's coming home videos and we have picked YOURS for Joseph's song ... The lyrics about Uganda in this song bring tears to my eyes each day ... I have such a deep longing to be in Uganda right now walking the dirt roads, touching the people, holding the hand of Matty Joseph, seeing Katie and her children, and an urgency to drink in the joy and culture of this amazing people group ... I just have to believe that a longing and a desire that is so deep with in my soul had to come from the Lord .. I have never been to Africa and yet there are moments during the day that if I close my eyes, I can escape to there and feel the wind blowing in my face and hear the laughter and singing of hundreds of children ... Thank you Lord for all the whispers you give us each day and how they bless us, challenge us, and keep us close to you ...
I received some amazing new pictures of Matty Joseph from a volunteer at Amani ... He is just going to be the perfect little Oatsvall ... His smile, laughter, and mischievous nature will fit right in !!!!
