Here is a letter from the orphanage in Zimbabwee:
We would just like to inform you that the first box of blankets have arrived - Praise the Lord! I took it up to the children today and there was great excitement as the cold weather is starting to set in now. We had to pay customs $59,00 which is a pity as we usually get this all thru for no charge at all - but believe me it is worth every cent.
Thank you so very much for your love and care and we will let you know when the next box arrives.
On behalf of Good Shepherd Committee
Our mission is to send the "tangible" love of Jesus Christ to his orphaned children throughout the world in the form of a blanket or bear.
Our vision is to send that warm and cuddly feeling of love through blankets and bears to orphanages in Africa, then Asia and eventually to all third world countries.
