|Escorting the truck to the farm|
The container has finally arrived! Wow! 4
to 6 weeks was really 4 to 6 months but it was worth it! Everything
arrived in perfect condition--nothing even shifted inside. When we
opened it it looked exactly like the day when we closed the doors. The
fragile things like the dishes, cups and even my coffee Bodum were even
in tact. What a miracle! (click on the pictures for a closer look)
|Heart Attack #1: Manually lifting the wire for the truck|
There were some definite "heart-attack"
moments as we manually tried to get the container off the truck, but
everything went ok--my biggest prayer was that no one should have to go

and the truck could not get into position next to our foundation (of
course, everything is dry now lol). We will have to deal with that part later.

all and are preparing to start distribution of the clothes and one-time
donations this weekend. Then get our programs rolling!
can't believe this day has finally come! I was so giddy when the truck
was following us down the road. This has been a two-year long project
with all kinds of ups and downs. Even over the last few weeks
everyone--the community, Misheck and I -- all were just becoming
exhausted by the wait. But how hope fulfilled fills you with new life
(Prov 13:12). We are all rejuvenated and beyond excited at what 2012
