Blankets for everyone!!! YAY!

It made my heart swell when I got this update from Melissa yesterday!  Thank you to everyone who so generously contributed to make sure the kiddos and those caring for them are warm on the coming winter nights in Zimbabwe!

The response to yesterday's blanket fundraiser was overwhelming. Every child and every staff member of our orphanages in Zimbabwe will be receiving a heavy, warm, winter blanket next week. In fact, a little excess came in at the end of the day which will be used to pay school fees.  The orphanage director has been notified and the children in Zimbabwe are already rejoicing!

There is only one reason for this great success. It was God Himself moving in the hearts of His precious children. Thank you for so much for hearing and taking action.

Next month I will update you with photos of the warm, happy kids with their blankets.

God bless you all!

Psalm 10:17-18 (NIV) "You hear, O Lord, the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you listen to their cry, defending the fatherless and the oppressed, in order that man, who is of the earth, may terrify no more."
