At the end of December, our long -awaited container full of our personal goods as well as ministry items arrived. We filled it, sealed it, prayed over it, and sent it on it’s way back in July.
We had hoped it would arrive before the holidays since we had included a few special food items for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
However, we are thankful it arrived safely and with very little damage to our belongings. It was a wonderful day of discovery; finding items we had been waiting for and not finding a few things that we thought we had packed but must have forgotten.
We want to thank all of our wonderful friends at Bedford Christian Center in Temperance, Michigan for the excellent packing job they did. And, all that Northern Quilted toilet paper that Gary donated to use for packing and cushioning did the job!
Plus, we were able to share the TP with other missionaries and they were thrilled to have real American toilet tissue! It’s the little things in life that make a difference!
We have also been able to distribute tools that had been donated to us to a number of missionaries. We have already distributed puppets and other ministry items to various churches in the area. National churches and pastors as well as missionaries have benefited by the arrival of our container.
It is a wonderful feeling to be able to bless others with items that make their life and ministry easier and better.
