We’ve shipped a container!

SHE’S ON THE HIGH SEAS

Yes, we did it!  Finally, after talking about it for years, we got  it packed, loaded and sent off.  On March 26th we shipped our  first 40 foot container of humanitarian aid to Kenya.  The load  included 21 hospital beds, medical supplies, wheelchairs,  medical equipment, 50 steel desks, books, school supplies,  Bibles, clothing, shoes, tools, and a portable cement-mixer.  In all, we shipped over 10 tons of “stuff”.

Getting it all together was a lot of work.  We are so thankful to  those who helped by donating their time, their goods, and  their funds.  A charity in British Columbia gave us $7000 to  cover most shipping expenses.
