We got a semi container to pack!

 Would you like to help ship a semi container full of supplies to Haiti?

We are so excited to have the opportunity to ship a semi trailer by boat to Haiti. We have made great contacts over the years and are able to bring in wonderful, needed items to help and bless the Haitian people and to continue the work here. We don’t want to let this opportunity pass us by, so we need your help! We need help sorting, packing, and loading the semi. We need people to donate items that are on the following “NEEDS LIST.” We need people to get the word out, get others excited, and gather supplies to bring to the storage units. We need people to send funds to help ship the semi trailer by road, train, and boat to get to Haiti. You, your Sunday School class, your small group could sponsor a pallet-full of needed items to be shipped down to Haiti. So, sponsor a pallet to provide supplies for the entire coming year. There are 40 pallets that need to be sponsored for $250 each. This is will cover the $10,000 needed to ship the semi. If you can’t sponsor a whole pallet, consider sponsoring by the pound. A 40 foot semi can ship 38,000 lbs of supplies – that’s only 26 cents per pound. Airmail is $2.50 per pound. Bargain shoppers know—this is a great deal! A gift of $26 will ship help us ship 100 lbs.!  



Here’s what happens:

 Great people donate great supplies.

The semi is driven to a train station, goes to the boat dock, is transferred to the boat and travels down to Haiti.


The semi arrives in Haiti and has to go through customs.

Then we rent trucks to haul the items to Cazale since we don’t have a big truck.  We unload it in Cazale and put it all away.
