Look me up on facebook...I have a video of who we are and why we do what we do...I also have a video of our mission trip to Laredo on my facebook page. For some reason I am unable to post them on my blogpage...look up Tori Durst!
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.

I am waiting on pictures, we shipped little receiving blankets and tiny new bears to a pregnancy crisis center in Romania a few months ago...as soon as I get those in I will post.
But just on Labor Day weekend we had the privilege of meeting up with a group of churches in Laredo, TX and hand delivered 42 teddy bears to boys and girls at a children's home there. It was a very humbling experience, we went to give love to give the tangible love of Jesus to kids through the form of our teddy bears but what God had planned on the trip was for us to receive love. We met up with four churches from Lousiana and brother Price Harris and all they could do was encourage us in our ministry and pray for us and lift us up with their love towards us...and of course the children's home was like heaven with trees planted all along the drive up to the doors set on a beautiful large property and with warm sisters in christ tending to the children. It was beautiful and each child came up to us shook our hands and said they were pleased to meet us..then we grabbed them and hugged them.

After months of waiting we finally got pictures of the shipment to Kenya and to Orphans for Christ in Uganda. The first two pictures are at a larger orphanage in Uganda that is part of Orphans for Christ. The last two smaller pictures are from a small orphanage in Kenya with Pastor Issack handing our blankets and bears. Thanks to all who give to make this possible!!

During the last week of school (before Christmas break) I went and spoke again at Highland Park about mission Blankets & Bears and about "giving" in general. They donated blankets and have more to come! We will be having our donation drive during the spring after all the "holidays" are over.
