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.

Going to Church
We are on our way to church this morning. It is 80 degrees (27 C) with 80% humidity. It looks like it is about to pour, and most people walk to their destinations. We are going to a church congregation of 6,000 that used to have service in a tent every Sunday. They just got a building but it only has fans for air flow. We will pass through numerous beggers, some children, some children holding their own children to get to church. Our translator, who also works at the school here, was beat up one sunday for his watch trying to get on the bus. The missionaries said he made it to church a little late with blood on his shirt. I am thankful that I have a car to get to church, I have security in my small town, I have an air conditioner in my church and I have the ability to give my children food, clothes, a home, and safety....but I only have all those things because of God, I am thankful God has blessed me more than I could ever imagine. These people didn't choose to be born here just like I didn't choose to be born in America.
