Is your home cozy and warm? Are your children?

Philip Hayden Foundation needs your help to keep the children at Shepherd's Field warm this winter. The heat is supplied by the government from a central boiler located a mile away. It gets turned on on Nov 15th and turned off on March 15th. We need to pay for the entire winter so that they can buy enough coal to last through March. No gift is too small. Just go to China Orphans to send some warmth to the kids this winter.  

Our sweet Grace was there at this time last year...  Here she is now, celebrating her first birthday in a family. In this picture, she is standing here amazed, pointing at herself asking if these toys are for her.     Yes, baby girl, all for you!  Your own gifts, your own clothes, and YOUR OWN FAMILY!

Other children waiting at PHF...

 I can't tell you what it meant to me last year to know that our little girl was being kept warm because of loving and caring people who took God's command to care for the orphans literally.  Each of these children is someone's child, God's.  And hopefully each of these children will one day know the love of a family here on earth; but until that day, will you help care for them?  NO amount is too small.  Please go to China Orphans and donate whatever you can.  Thank you!

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.

James 1:27
