In April we distributed 125 winter packs to children in Lesotho…backpacks filled with blankets, hats, gloves, and scarves. Why???? It is God’s love that compels us to love others…it is out of a place of gratitude, humility, and a call to action that we care for the children in Lesotho and Southern Africa. That’s why we want to provide 125 more warm hats, scarves, gloves, and blankets for the children in George, South Africa in June. The cold winter months (May-September) have arrived in Southern Africa. With your help we have the opportunity to give a tangible reminder to the children that they are deeply loved by us, and their Heavenly Father.
Would you help us provide winter packs for the children in South Africa?
It’s amazing how so many things that we take for granted in the US that are special treats for our kids in Lesotho. I’m not sure that I’ve ever enjoyed a peanut butter and jelly sandwich as much as I did on my last visit to Lesotho. I know that their smiles made the sandwiches taste extra yummy! The next time you sit down (or drive through) to grab a quick bite remember how precious a simple pb&j is to kids across the globe! ~ Mike

Will you join us in helping the least of the least in Southern Africa? Learn how you can be involved here.
We will be headed into winter here in South Africa soon. South Africa and Lesotho are areas where the temperatures often drop below freezing in the winter months and bring frequent snow storms. Once the sun goes down it is really chilly.
Will you help? A $25 donation provides a Winter Pack for a needy child in Africa!

What do you do when you live in a place that is freezing cold, and it’s hard to stay warm? You can’t turn on the heat. There is none. You can’t put on a warm jacket or blanket when you don’t have one. And you can’t slip under the warmth of a comforter at night when the only thing you have to sleep on is the cold cement floor.
Over the next two months our goal is to raise funds to purchase and then distribute hundreds of winter packs (hats, gloves, scarves, and blankets) to children in Lesotho and South Africa. Each pack cost us $25 to assemble and distribute. You can help us with this project through your donation and bring warmth to children who so desperately need it…
