Thanks to volunteers from the Chilean community in Richmond and our friends from Wagner Hills in Langley, we loaded two large 40 ft. containers in June – one to Chile on June 19, and the other to Romania on June 27.  This brings our total to 12 40 ft. containers for the year.  

Our first container to Chile has also arrived and we are anticipating further information regarding that any day now. Please pray that all goes well with these containers.  

Among other cargo on board our 2nd container to Chile this time were over 360.000 servings of soup from the Gleaners in Oliver and an X-Ray machine (a complete unit) originally donated by the hospital in Trail. This shipments is going to the city of Tirua – a small town near the city of Conception which was greatly damaged by earthquakes earlier this year.  The mayor of Tirua has already welcomed this shipment as do many other people in Chile. The cargo is scheduled to reach Chile in a few weeks time.
