ETS on the Move

No, ETS isn't moving but we did move out over 36,000 pounds of clothing, books, beds and medical supplies last month with the help of the Liberty Christian Boys Brigade of Maryland. The boys and their leaders drove down Friday night and we started loading the 53 foot tractor trailer at 9 AM Saturday Morning.

The tractor trailer was provided by Jezreel International, a faith based 501 C humanitarian aid organization based in New York. Jezreel International was started in 1996 as a response to seeing the dire straits of the poor in the former Soviet Union.

Currently they have shipped desperately needed medical and hospital supplies, food, clothing, personal care and hygiene products, toys, new shoes and sneakers to Israel and over 30 nations in need. In addition, they also have been a resource for area rescue shelters for battered women, drug addicts and alcoholics, pro-life pregnancy centers, inner-city ministries and veterans relief organizations. To find out more information about this ministry check out their website http//

We wish to thank all the many groups of volunteers that gave so freely of their time to sort, box, and move the 1177 boxes of clothing and coats that were donated to this ministry. It was wonderful to see them loaded and then to have the opportunity to pray over the container and its contents before it was driven away.

We rely on our volunteers to help us meet the needs of missionaries world wide. If your youth group, small group, Bible study, civic group, church group or families are interested in volunteering for a Saturday or on a regular basis we would welcome your call to set up a specific time. Thank you for your time, prayers, and funding.
