Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. (NIV) James 1:27
Nearly 60% of the people in Lesotho live at poverty level…many families live on less than $1 a day.

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.
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…
What a fun Saturday afternoon in Maseru, Lesotho!
