The LOST LAMB Project

Vision & Purpose

The purpose of The LOST LAMB® Project is to demonstrate God’s love by donating and delivering a plush lamb to sick, poor, and/or at-risk children. We partner with children’s hospitals, foster homes, orphanages, shelters, and at-risk schools, churches, and youth organizations. The ministry currently focuses on donating and delivering in the United States, but the vision is to distribute these lambs around the world. The primary purpose of The LOST LAMB® Project is for these children to find and know God!

Why a Plush Lamb?

For starters, scientific studies and medical research reveal that stuffed animals provide significant physical and mental health benefits to children, including:

1. Reducing stress and anxiety.

2. Providing a sense of comfort and safety.

3. Enabling a better night’s sleep.

Secondly, the Bible has a multitude of scripture and teachings utilizing the imagery and symbolism of lambs. For example, the famous parable of “The Lost Sheep” describes the divine truth that God is our Great Shepherd who loves us deeply and searches for us as his lost sheep; until we find our way back into His heavenly flock. Also, Psalm 23 “The Lord is my Shepherd” is one of the most popular chapters in the entire Bible. As our Shepherd, God provides us with direction, protection, and restoration. The Bible also speaks about Jesus being the “Lamb of God.”

Thirdly, the Bible tells us that God is the true source of hope, help, and healing. So, in summary, the lamb product combines the benefits of a plush animal and God’s transformational truths into a single product that provides physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits with the overall goal of helping shape these children into God-loving and God-following adults.

The $1 Million Dollar Question:

Will you go to Heaven when you die? Here’s a quick test:
Q. Have you ever told a lie?
Q. Have you ever stolen anything?
Q. Have you ever used God’s name in vain?
Q. Have you ever lusted over someone?
Q. Have you ever hated someone?

If you have done these things, God sees you as a liar, a thief, a blasphemer, an adulterer-at-heart, and a murderer-at-heart. And this is only 5 of God’s Ten Commandments (a/k/a “God’s Law”). And the Bible warns that on the Day of Judgment, God will punish you in a terrible place called Hell. But, there is “good news”! God is not willing that any should perish. Sinners broke God’s Law, but Jesus paid their fine by shedding His sinless blood on a cross ~2,000 years ago. This means that God can legally dismiss their case (and yours!): “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16) Then Jesus rose from the dead, defeating death. Today, repent (turn away from your sins), put your complete trust in Jesus, and confess Jesus as your Lord & Savior… and God will give you eternal life as a free gift.

The $1 Million Dollar Myth:

Contrary to popular belief, being a “good person”, doing “good deeds”, or being “religious” will not get you a ticket to heaven! Many people are hoping God will dismiss their sins because their good deeds outweigh their bad deeds. They further hope that because God is “good” he will let them go unpunished and enter heaven. However, because God is “good” he must by nature punish sinners (i.e., God would not be a good judge if he let criminals go free). The Bible states: “There is no one on earth who is righteous, no one who does what is right and never sins.” (Ecclesiastes 7:20) The Bible also states: “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9) And finally, think about this, if your goodness could save you, Jesus would have died in vain (i.e., for no good reason). The Bible states: “I (Jesus) am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father (God) except through me. (John
14:6) Friends, please don’t “roll-the-dice” and gamble your eternal life on the life-threatening lie that being a “good person” will get you to heaven.

Yes, today I am deciding to follow Jesus:

Here is a prayer you can use to receive Jesus Christ as your personal Lord & Savior. It is a suggested prayer – the key is that you are speaking from your heart.
“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me turn away from sin going forward. I believe that your Son, Jesus Christ, died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus into my heart and I confess him as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank You for sending your Holy Spirit to help me obey you, and to do your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.”

Congratulations! And welcome to God’s family!
