The next step was mattresses. They are on the pricey side because we wanted to get something that would last. So, for $50 each we could get 4 inch mattresses made with a vinyl covering (for our bed-wetters). But $50 times 200 is a lot of money…

Warm Blankets, who sponsors these children’s food and school fees, started us off with 9 homes full of mattresses – 90 children received mattresses! Some others came to visit and gave for 3 homes and others gave year-end gifts to get us to 15 homes covered! What a blessing!
We are opening 20 new homes in May and we would love to have the current 20 homes fully covered for mattresses. We are in need of 5 more homes covered, or 50 mattresses. That is $500 per home for a total of $2,500.
How you can help...talk with your small group and sponsoring a home, share with your missions pastor about supporting these children, pray that God would provide for these next 5 homes before May!
These children are so thankful to all of those who have already given and those who are praying!
