This is me and Diana about a year and a half ago. She is very dear to me. When children from her orphanage graduate they can go to a couple of trade schools. These schools are very dangerous and depression, drugs, drunkenness abound. Many girls drop out, go into crime and prostitution, commit suicide. BUT --> God has challenged us to buy a house for girls so that girls like Diana will be safe, discipled, and given a chance for a bright future. Will you help? -Anna

Leap of faith

Do you remember a couple of weeks ago when we made the announcement about Esther's House? Well, we have made arrangements to partner with Heart for Orphans and Agape in order to purchase this Transitional Living Center for the girls. The cost of this house is estimated to be $60,000. Heart for Orphans has pledged $30,000, and Blanket Buddies, with God's grace, has also pledged $30,000. This is a leap of faith for us, but we know that God will provide and that many girls will be blessed and come to know the Lord through the establishment of this house.

Would you please consider being a pledge partner with Blanket Buddies. We are asking 300 people to pledge $100 by December. Girls who leave the orphanage can go straight  into Esther's House where they will be mentored by a Christian houseparent. They will participate in Bible studies, local mission activities, and two of the girls, both former orphans, are now out on forgeign missions- sharing Christ with others just as we have with them. Praise God!!!

This is an incredible opportunity for you to make a real contribution. A one-time donation of $100 will make a life-time difference for these orphans and other lost souls. Contact us now @ (417) 293-3238, on Facebook or use the donate button here on the blog.

We are excited to announce...

We have wonderful news about the Transitional Living Center for the girls, which will be called Esther's House. We are partnering with Heart for Orphans and Agape to make this safe house happen for girls leaving the orphanage and going to the trade schools. This house will be the new home for approximately 15 girls.  I will keep you all posted on the details. Please begin praying about God's blessings for this new adventure.

This picture is of one of the houses that is being considered.
