Hooray for Volunteers!

     ETS loves our volunteers.  The majority of our work is done by volunteers.  Imagine our delight to have a group of adults and college students who gave up their spring break to travel to Virginia to help us.

    Savannah Christian Late Church and collegeAGE group helped us recycle computers, sort books, clothing, Christian literature, researched items on the computer, take pictures of Ebay items that needed listing and even helped create a new logo, Facebook page and volunteer recruitment video.   The group stayed in our building and camped out for 3 days.  We made sure they got to taste some of our Mennonite delicacies as well as Ethiopian food in a local restaurant
     We also appreciated Laurel Hills Baptist Church women’s group that made a considerable dent in our sorted used clothing bins.  As well as the 20 youths from Calvary Baptist Church Staunton that shifted gears from a roofing project and helped us move clothing boxes, vitamins, and worked in our warehouse. The inclement weather didn’t dampen their spirit and they blessed us with their enthusiasm and hard work.

Prayer Requests:
· Please pray about  the visit of a  potential  staff family for ETS later this month.
· Please pray for a reliable vendor to produce our children’s  vitamins.
· Continue to pray for various vehicles we need to sell.
