Glorious Day for New Recipient in Haiti

OGT’s first shipment to Josias Marin in Thomassique, Haiti was cleared and unloaded! It was a glorious day for Josias and everyone helping to unload and see the gifts from OGT. A goat farmer had a special request for ‘farmer’s clothes’ and OGT collected coveralls and rubber boots. He (photo with coveralls and boots) has a goat farm there for people to work and support themselves; he was grateful for the boots and clothes. The shipment also included the 40′ shipping container to be used for storage, 57,024 Mercy Meals, 5,000 pounds of beans, French Bibles, bed frames and mattresses, hygiene kits, school kits, sports equipment, classroom tables and chairs. Goods will be organized and distributed soon.
