Container #47 – On its Way to Cuba!
Three weeks ago we booked container #47 for Saturday Nov 24th. Everything was okay so Bev Banks our phoner found 12 volunteers to help pack.
On November 21st I was told they once again could not find a truck driver. So Bev phoned everyone to hold off. Then at 3 p.m. on the 22nd they found a driver. Bev phoned everyone to come at 9 a.m. on Saturday. Then it snowed and the highway from Toronto was closed. Bev phoned to tell folks to come at 1 p.m. Thanks Bev for your cheerful patience.
Finally at 1 p.m. the container arrived and packing began. It was cold, it was snowy and before we finished it was dark! But I marvel at the dedication, stamina and willingness of these volunteers to stick with it until all 622 items were tightly fitted into the container and on it’s way to Cuba. Beds, wheelchairs,computers, a brand new freezer to store hospital food in, a therapeutic bath tub to ease children’s spastic muscles, and much more was shipped
to show God’s love for the Cuban people.
Again, everything worked out thanks to God and people willing to serve Him in difficult circumstances.
Thanks so much for your contribution to MEMO’s success!
