Loaded - Tarped - Fueled - Let's Go
Nohemi was joined by her daughter and her friend and Justin from church also stopped by to see if he could help! It was such fun to see people drive up and our people come out and help them unload their vehicles, bring in the donated items, talk with the people donating and thank them for helping. What a great example of our people being the church! It just warms your heart and each person donating felt that warmth and love.
So tomorrow morning we are ready to roll south. We will have 2 vehicles loaded with supplies. More than the supplies --- the love and blessings attached to each one is priceless and will bring hope and love and life to those hurting so deeply. It is our goal that each person we meet will not see us but will see (and feel) the love Jesus has for them!
We will be unloading our supplies and reloading - along with hot meals - and heading out into the rural areas to personally deliver everything. One of our neighbors left this morning with another load of supplies and called to say he was making personal deliveries also and you could hear the "life" in his voice. I have no doubt that the life we heard was the life felt by each person he helped!
We are still collecing donations. We will continue to collect donations and will make trips to deliver them as long as the need is there.
We thank each one of you who came by and donated items, all of you who donated funds and all of you who are praying for those who have lost so much.
A quick reminder -- if you would like to donate funds for this relief effort --- it's now easier than ever! Just log on to our website at www.igorelief.org and there is a link at the bottom of the first page to direct you to donate online. Also -- we are in the process of updating that site so please bear with us and the rather dated stories!!
Until next time . . . may angels go ahead of us, behind us and beside us as we travel and spread the much needed hope to each person we see. Susan and Monty
