How Mission of Love helped the
tornado victims of Moore, Oklahoma
Over the years Mission of LOVE has distributed over 10,000 handmade comfort quilts in areas of
devastation via tornado’s, earthquakes, war and tsunamis. These comfort quilts were sent to
our Mission of LOVE from complete strangers who responded to our friend and partner, Luana Rubin,
owner of eQulter.com. eQuilter.com is a business on the Internet that sells fabric, quilt
material and needed items in order to make these special comfort quilts. When there is destruction
from a earthquake or hurricane, Luana will place on her web site www.eQuilter.com a call of compassion to the quilters of the world to respond
by making and sending a comfort quilt to Mission of LOVE and in turn, I will open each and every
box and repack it in a special bag and we go and distribute them to the people in need. We
have given over 10,000 comfort quilts to the victims of Japan, Katrina, Haiti, Sandy, 911, Pine
Ridge Native American Indian Reservation in South Dakota, and the Mayan orphans and cleft palate
patients of Guatemala, and now to the tornado victims of Moore, Oklahoma.
I would like to share with you a story about ONE child,
Christopher. Christopher was nine years old suffering from melanoma cancer and
Christopher was just given a clean bill of health after years of cancer treatment two weeks
prior to the tornado. Christopher was in school protecting two of his classmates and
died of a broken back when the school wall came crushing down, his two classmates survived
that he was protecting.
We will be returning to help re-build the homes of the Mothers/ teachers who not only
lost their child but also lost their home on that day when all hell broke loose in Moore,
Oklahoma, only to find out after the tornado that they had lost their insurance because of
a previous hail storm a month prior to the tornado and the insurance company never informed the
people of Moore and in the night, left town.
We are seeking donations of money in order to
purchase building supplies in Oklahoma and have our Mission of LOVE building team arrive to rebuild
together Sacred Homes for those in need.
With sincere gratitude and love,

"YOU are not here to save the world but
are here to touch the hands that are within your reach."
Sue and Kathy packaging the 400 comfort quilts made by quilters
from the United States, England and Switzerland to be hand delivered to the mothers
who lost a child, teachers who saved the students, and those who lost a home in
Moore, Oklahoma due to the worst tornado in history.
When Karen and Kathy arrived from Ohio to Oklahoma with our
Comfort Quilts, we were met be Mayor Tim Kerner, Chris Robert from Lafitte,
Louisiana and Mayor Glenn Lewis. We began making our plans to distribute the
quilts at Moore City Hall.
