April was a very busy month for us. We were able to send out a container of clothing and office chairs to Operation Mobilization . The clothing will be used in Peru. We are very thankful for the many groups, churches, and individuals that help sort, box and move the 880 boxes of clothing. We are especially thankful to the youth group from New Covenant Community Church in Weyers Cave for all their hard work loading the truck and packing the items.
ETS was able to send volunteer Dave Synder to the TECH (Technical Exchange for Christian Health) conference held at Samaritan's Purse in Boone, North Carolina. Dave came back with lots of good information and enthusiasm.
We have been blessed with volunteer groups from Blue Ridge Christian school, the “Fun Bunch” and 20 people from Blue Ridge Christian Church for their “Compassion in Action” outreach week. They were able to sort OTC (over the counter) medications, box coats, linens, shoes and blankets and do baby bundles as well as our seasonal clothing.
It’s always an exciting time to see the works of our hands leave the building going out to “Equip the Saints.”
