Camphor Mission Container Has Arrived!

The 20 foot container that was sent by Mentor UMC has arrived on the Camphor Mission. Danny needed to find a crane to get it off the semi truck. It was a not an easy task. He traveled to an international company BRE then to the port and finally arrived on the mission with a very large crane that lifted the container and set it in place. Tada!

Since then we have been busy unloading supplies for Camphor, Ganta, Gbanga, and other UMC schools. It has been exciting to share the resources. The visitors are convinced that the backpacks have been reproducing in the container! Over 300 backpacks for the first 300 students registered for school. It will be very exciting for the people in the village!

Thanks to the Wooster UMC for tables and chairs that will be put to use immediately with a teacher training that is being held at Camphor.
Thanks to Mentor UMC for backpacks, birthing kits, and so much more!
Thanks to Vienna UMC for office furniture.
Thanks to Andover for the church pews! The congregation is SO excited! Larry will be putting them together with some students over the next 2 weeks.
Thanks to MedWish and Laurie Joyce for hospital and medical supplies.
Thanks to Bill at Sagamore for the baby scale, the Camphor Clinic was thrilled!
Thanks to Faith UMC for little girl pillow case dressed, Nancy will do some distribution over the next 2 weeks.
Thanks to Garretsville UMC and Gay Street UMc for helping to send school supplies! Connie Irvin you're the best!
Thanks to Jordan Martin for toothpaste and toothbrushes.
Thanks to Orchard Path UMC for the school shoes.
Thanks to Kevin Shaner for sorting books.
Thanks to Jack for agriculture supplies.
Thanks to Bill Otte and others for lockers.
And for all of the people I have missed, the people at Camphor are dancing, singing, jumping with joy to receive these needed items! Praise God!

Peoria UMC, thanks for sending Kathy on this trip. She has brought much energy, laughter, and spirit to this group. She has been the blessed eyes and ears for you at Camphor. The folks at Camphor were thrilled to have her on the mission again and introduce her to the village students that you help to support. Kathy was the person who handed out the graduation certificates to the 9th graders at the closing ceremonies.

What a blessing to be a part of UMVIM ministries!
