God is so good!! We Praise God for all that He is doing in our life and in the ministry. He has crossed our paths with so many ministries. This past week, we shipped approximately 4,000 baby mittens across the United States. Some went to the East Coast and some went to the West Coast to Indian Reservations & Ministries. This week, God allowed me to hook up with a Ministry which will be taking some of the mittens to Afghanistan. To God Be The Glory!! When we received all these mitten's, it was easy to question what!!, are you sure we are suppose to receive these, but God I have no idea where they go!! The wonderful & amazing thing about God is, we don't have to know, we only have to be His obedient vessel and say, Here I Am. Father, May this always be my answer to You, as I Serve You.

Jacob's Place is located in Searcy, Arkansas. Their mission is to show compassion and offer hope in the Name of Jesus Christ by providing temporary housing for the homeless and assisting them to obtain spiritual and physical stability. They can house 3-4 families for as much time as it takes them to get back on their feet. Any families who stay longer than 2 weeks will enter a program designed to help them improve their job and life skills, learn to budget their finances, and have the end goal of successful independence. We have went to many shelters and only a few show the Love of God as yours. Anyone can give a hand out, but few offer a hand up in life. It is so important when a person goes thru these hard times to direct their paths to Christ. He can set straight the path for them. May God Bless you all & the families you assist.
Lakota New Hope Ministries grew out of a burden to bring the message of the Hope of Christ to the Lakota people on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation . Their mission is to bring the Hope of Christ to the Lakota children and youth through God's Word, activities and the provision of a safe environment. I read the different stories and looked at the different areas of your website. It appears God is using your ministry in many different ways. I have never been to a reservation, but one day would love to visit each that received the Baby Mittens. I love to see God working in such an amazing way in Lakota New Hope Ministries. May He continue to open even more doors of outreach opportunities and new doors to the ministry as you Serve Him. God Bless

Also blessed are the many people who are finding a fruitful way to serve the Lord by serving others. Love-Lift Ministries has demonstrated a time proven ability to deliver, and to touch the lives of people who need our help and encouragement in the Name of the Lord. Your ministry was so heart touching to me, because we do much of the same. This world is filled with so much discouragement that satan uses to rip the Joy from each of us. We ALL need the extra encouragement, even when we think we don't! May God Bless you all and each person volunteering. May He always provide even more ideas for uplifting, encouraging and Sharing His Love in this Hurting World. In Christ's Love

Overcomers Outreach Ministries is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. They help Native American Indians stop addictive behaviors and become positive role models for their family, friends, and communities. Most importantly, we lead people to live a Christ Centered Life. Overcomers Ministries reaches out to children and families and advocates for the welfare of all Native Americans in Minnesota. It is sad to many times people want to judge for the actions & deeds, instead of Sharing the Love of Christ with them. We all fall short, not even one of us can say we don't. We all have weaknesses that satan uses against us, and will keep using them, until it is broken with the Love of Christ. To many people can't pull their self out of the situation that is stealing their life, satan comes to kill, steal and destroy. I am proud to see a ministry that intercedes and uplifts the person with the Love of Christ, not judge or ridicule the deed or action. Many Christians will face God's judgment for the judgment & treatment they have given others, that God crossed their path to minister too! We will not only be judged for what we did, but what we FAILED to do!! May God Bless you as your Minister with His Love & Grace!

God will reward each of you for the Seeds that have been planted in Searcy Children s Home. We never know whose life we are touching by the seeds we are planting for His Kingdom.

Sure Foundation Family Ministry is located in Parkman, Wyoming. They open their heart to the families of the Crow Indian Reservation in south central Montana. Through the study and application of scripture related to families, we promote positive family life along with healing of childhood suffering experienced by parents. Through teaching, mentoring, and empowering, we expect to see stable families on the firm foundation of God's Word. Continue to keep this ministry in Prayer as they lost the Director of SFFM which built many relationships within the Reservation. I am sorry to hear of the loss of the founder of SFFM. The lives she touched and seeds of love she planted throughout the Reservation will never be forgotten. My thoughts & Prayers are with your Ministry as you strive to press on to higher ground. God will make a way, and bring new opportunities along the way. God used her as the start of the foundation, but He has equipped someone to finish the bridge of Love through the relationships that was started. May God continue to direct your Paths and Provide the Peace that surpasses all understanding as you Serve Him. In Christ's Love
Walk on Water Ministries is located in Genesco, Illinois. They help teens and adults share their faith by different kinds of practical opportunities of feeding the homeless, Mission Trips, remolding homes, and inspiring those to action. Wow is a movement of Christians dedicated to presenting Jesus to this generation, to mobilize as many as possible to help in the task and the training & equipping of believers. As I read the stories of each of your mission trip, I was amazed at how much our hearts & ministries are alike. We are very, very small compared to your ministry, but God always does amazing things. We take Mission Trips also, but don't have a bus to take anyone like you all do. If you get people on the Mission Trip, a change takes place. He places things in the right priority and you can't get that on the pews of the church. He allows people to get out of their comfort zone, and then starts shaping and molding the hearts. Stepping out into the Action is where the Faith begins. This is where you see the Miracles, Healing and His Power & Glory. It is time Christians realize the church is not within the four walls, the church is within each of us and the actions riding on the Faith. May God continue to Bless the Ministry and each person or ministry you assist and May God touch each life participating in each Mission Trip in a mighty way! God Bless!

The joy of sharing the Love of Christ and the Gospel of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ is the passion in my heart. We need more churches and ministries stepping up to the plate of discipling & equipping to proclaim the Gospel. Some where along the path it has became more about nickels & noses (money & attendance). I am so proud of Wings of Eagles for taking the step to Share the Love of God & proclaim the Gospel of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ, but most of all, I Thank God for the equipping of others. Equipping is a vital lifeline to any ministry. What good is a bag of flour, to someone hungry, if they don't know how to make bread!
