Arrangements are made for arrival of a container

The Philippines recently received container OGT 1370 loaded with 259,200 rice meals, blankets, hygiene kits, and bowls for the Lutheran Church Philippines (LCP). This was the first shipment of Mercy Meals for the hurricane victims of the Philippines funded by the partnership of Orphan Grain Train and Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. The container was purchased for the people to use as storage for their relief supplies. Once the container arrived at the Philippine port, arrangements were made for the shipment to be received by LCP. A big crane was needed to offload the container onto a large truck for delivery to the recipient. Arrangements are also being made for OGT 1374, another container expected this week. We want to thank Jeff for all his help in making these arrangements so that the needy people are receiving our humanitarian aid.
