First Shipment in Route to Moldova
Wichita Branch volunteers loaded their first international shipment which is on its way to Moldova! The volunteers were excited to know they will be helping disabled individuals, the homeless, and families living in poverty through Bible Mission International. The shipment included bikes, school kits, desks, sewing fabric, quilts, hygiene kits, medical equipment, wheelchairs, clothes, coats, and shoes. They had some help from Paul Brandt, Norfolk warehouse assistant manager to assist with the loading procedures and Chris Carstens, inventory manager at the international office to assist with required paperwork and logging inventory. OGT is thrilled to have another location in the US that collects recyclables and ships these gifts to people who need them. Great job Wichita Branch volunteers!(8/2018)
