introducing...


Matthias Judah Rojas Oates

Matthias – “Gift of God” A disciple of Jesus who follows in humble anonymity until (in Acts 1:26) he is chosen by God for leadership. He serves faithfully his whole life.

Sienna and Isaiah prayed for a baby for a long time. We joyfully receive Matthias as a gift from God.

Judah – “Let God be praised” Our prayer is that our son will praise God and that others will praise God because of his life.

Our hearts are filled with praise for this baby and for his peaceful, safe home birth.

Rojas – Carmen’s maiden name, given with gratitude for her family and in honor our children's Nicaraguan heritage.
