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.

Arrival in Nicaragua
After getting up at 3:45am to make or flight out of Dallas, we finally made it to Nicaragua. We left the airplane and stepped into the Nicaragua airport to see all airline employees with masks on..talk about a little scary to us. Then we had to stand in front of an infared detector to see if we were running fever. Apparently they had their first Swine Flu case yesterday and 20 possibles. We went straight from the airport to the christian school to play soccer (or football) and frisbee with the kids at the school. Tommorrow we head to another school they started to play, visit and teach the kids. We have video and pics, but our blogger page isn't working so check back for video. It is SO hot, but we are blessed to stay in an airconditioned house that is considered a luxury here. We ate at TJIFridays and they even had an english menu for us! The first thing we noticed was how crazy everyone drives here, we thought we were going to get hit getting out of the airport. Everyone honks and no one even looks to see who honked. Our shipment of bears, coloring books for the children's hospital and other activites for the kids are being held in customs. Please pray that it is released soon.
