Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands!
Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before His presence with singing.
Know that the LORD, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.
Psalm 100

If ever I knew someone who could shout for joy unto the Lord it would be this lady. Joan (61), was the Neema Project’s first teacher and has become my dear friend over the years. We often neglect to tell those who matter most how much God blesses us through their lives. I ask that our prayers for Neema today be filled with this expression of gratitude to God for these rich relationships, for this unique partnership, for you here in the states and for our extended family in Kenya, for God to fill us with a grateful heart.

Pray with me, “Lord, make our hearts a habitation where gratitude sings.
