Back To Back Loads To Bless Those in Need

Indiana Branch volunteers had 2 big back to back loads along with a pickup and trailer load for Orange County Women’s Ministry and they all survived but a bit tired! The first load was 178 student desks and 160 boxes of summer clothes to Ghana. Loaded with great help from Cummins IT employees and nearly exhausted all of them in the 95 degree heat and 80% humidity. The second load was Indiana’s “faithful” bunch who loaded wooden bunkers with household items, couple of pallets of Pack away Hunger meals, and lots of summer clothes in a 53’ trailer for Ysleta Lutheran Mission in El Paso. Not so hot this day as they started at 8 and finished in less than two hours. Thanks be to God for all the volunteers and items donated.
