A Message From Louise Downs:

My commitment began in October, 2001. Right after 9/11, God put our Troops on my heart… I have been committed to pray for them and send care packages…. "I" became "we"….. We became Desert Angels, Inc.; a 501(c)3 nonprofit ministry… Care packages became "Miracle Boxes" in Oct. 2007.

So many people have helped so many times, in so many different ways to make this possible. I continue to ask for postage….

With great thought and prayer, God put on my heart to just ask for a commitment: Would you make a monthly commitment to sponsor the postage for 1 or 2 boxes?

The cost to mail each box is $14.95.  If we could get 100 people to commitment to a box monthly, we would have postage to mail 100 "Miracle" boxes the VERY day we pack them!!!  That would be a MIRACLE!!

We ARE packing "Miracle" boxes… A Miracle for a "Miracle" box! I LOVE IT!

I would ask you, with your commitment, to write a letter to our Troops, letting them you know you are committed to paid for the postage, to keep shipping the "Miracle Boxes".  They have made a commitment to our country, and some sacrifice their life.  Joe Miracle did… For freedom!

We will put your letter in the "Miracle Boxes". Please include your contact information; the soldier just might correspond back to you.  We hope someday to publish the many letters, we have received back from our Troops.

Since 2001, we have collected items, packed items, counted the number of boxes we packed, and then asked for the postage. Praise God! He has always provided!!  

In 2007 we have made a commitment to Oxford Meijers Store to pack "Miracle" boxes in their store on the 11th day of every month… on the average we pack close to 100. We need to start shipping these boxes the very day, instead of holding them in my office/garage, waiting on postage. Sometimes we hold so long the name/address on the box is no longer current.

In 2007 Desert Angels, Inc. paid for postage to send 2355 boxes. (So you can see on the average we really do send about 200 each month). We have also assisted others where they paid for the postage. That brings an estimated total of 6029 Miracle Boxes just for 2007!

I recently got a short, one-sentence email from a soldier: "How can my 42 man unit receive miracle boxes? GARY" Gary asked me that question…. NOW I ask you … How can we get postage to send 42 "Miracle" boxes to this unit?

If you would like to make a monthly, tax deductible commitment to send Miracle Boxes to Our Troops, Please contact Louise at Louise@TheDesertAngel.org or call 248-736-6403. 


Thank you for your consideration.


Remember, only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you: Jesus Christ and the American Soldier.

One died for your soul, the other for your freedom!
