Quilts to the Victims of Tennessee
Andrea Thome and husband former Cleveland Indians player Jim Thome are teaming
up with an Mission of Love and an online quilting company to send handmade "comfort
quilts" to victims of the Tennessee wildfires.
The Thomes and Kathleen Price, founder of Mission of Love, will deliver the quilts
to the fire victims after enough have been collected.
Andrea and Jim Thome, and Kathleen Price are going to take them down there
personally to people who have lost homes or been affected by the fires. Andrea
Thome's now-deceased mother was a volunteer for Mission of Love.
If you wish to make and donate a quilt, drop off at eQuilter's office by Jan 5, or
ship *directly* to Mission of Love, to be received by Jan 15th 2017:
Mission of Love / Kathleen Price

Youngstown, Ohio 44515
If you have questions, please contact Dana at eQuilter Customer Service 877-322-7423.
Mission of Love does not have a staff to acknowledge receipt of quilts, so please
send with a tracking number to confirm delivery. They will be too busy prepping and
packing aid for fire victims!

Latest Trip to Guatemala
All last week Kathy Price and Mission of Love were in Guatemala, finding
homeless children and giving them a home, visiting the orphanage, delivering food
to remote villages who are starving, and the medical team gave the miracle of cleft
lip and palate surgeries. We are so proud to be supporting the efforts of this
truly amazing organization, led by Kathy who is literally a miracle worker. She and
her merry band of volunteers load up a military cargo plane, and fly through the
air like ten thousand magic reindeer, to help the poorest of the poor with
compassion and dignity. If you ever want to have a life-changing experience,

Letter from Kathleen Price - Mission
of Love Founder
I AM so thankful to those special
people who are in my life who support our Mission of Love, uplift me, comfort me
and bring joy to my soul in order to bring joy to others in need.
As this year comes to a close I would like to express my sincere gratitude to
the hundreds of volunteers, contributors, and benefactors who have made our 2016 a
year of Blessings for thousands of orphans, disabled, elderly, disfigured,
homeless, sick, hungry, and poor of Guatemala and the Pine Ridge Native American
Indian Reservation. YES, together WE have touched the hands and hearts that were
within our reach and have found that the best way to find ourselves is to lose
ourselves in the service of others.
we built homes were build for the homeless,
36 intense surgeries were completed on children with cleft lip/ pallet
a first fire truck for the native Americans was delivered to Kyle,
90,000 pounds of humanitarian AID was delivered on our 58TH C5 Denton
Cargo plane to Guatemala,
a van was donated to a Native American family who had no transportation
and a father disabled,
AID was transported to Standing Rock Native American Indian
two hundred thirty disabled patients were given wheelchairs, therapy
beds were given to children with cerebral palsy who had none and were
sleeping on the dirt floor,
Tuitions were given to children in need of a education
and sadly, a funeral was arranged for a child.
This month we are sending to Guatemala:
Our Mission of Love is everyday in every way collecting,
sorting, palletizing, and networking ALL in order to service the poorest of the
poor indigenous of our world.
Thank you for being part of our international Mission of Love. YOU are not
here to save the world but are in this world to touch the hearts and hands that are
within your reach.

Any amount, great or small, helps with the cleft palates
surgeries that our volunteers do, giving medical care to people who have never seen
a doctor, continue to build homes, hospices, schools and clinics, and continue to
have the United States Air Force Reserve fly our donations of humanitarian aid to
indigenous communities in need.
The children need your support for our next
Mission of Love Guatemala Trip to build a Medical/Dental Clinic and homes for
Mayan Families. Please contact
us if you would like to help.
Read about our latest
mission at the Pine Ridge Reservation
"The Mission of Love and our Jane Goodall Institute can work together to bring hope
to the young people on the Pine Ridge reservation because those young people need
every tiny bit of help they can get. They've had such a raw deal, and it's about
time that we begin to do something a little bit more than to feel sorry for
them." Jane Goodall
