7/23/08: Container #MSCU 464546 8. Monsignor Gilberto Gomez Gonzales of Abancay, Peru is the recipient of this July container. With the beds and stretchers, and over one-thousand and fifty five boxes of medical supplies, Father Gonzales will have plenty to distribute to his projects. The Pan American Development Foundation sponsored this shipment, and we are praying for a smooth custom’s clearance on such a large and diverse shipment.
7/14/08: Container #CBFU 340271. Our final container to Honduras for the summer was filled with computer monitors, medical supplies, oxygen tents for children, and a large quantity of institutional furnishings. Teams from Pennsylvania will be traveling in July and August to distribute and visit the many projects that receive our materials. A clinic in San Isidro is being developed with medical furnishings and supplies from Mission Relief Services. The Central American Relief Effort provided the medicines for the summer teams, and we shipped them down to Honduras in this valuable container.
7/11/08: Container #CBFU 3451790. Trinity Presbyterian Church in Berwyn helped Mission Relief Services, and the Central American Relief Effort secure two charitable rate containers from Chiquita before the program expired. For the last five years, we have taken advantage of the discounts provided by the Great White Fleet and Chiquita Brands to ship into Honduras. Our costs will increase about $550 per container, but we are continuing to make great progress in this country. This container and Trinity provided a variety of school desks, dental equipment, and hospital equipment to our friends and projects in Honduras, Centro America.
7/10/08: Container #GCEU 6016084. The Highland Presbyterian Church of Lancaster has a project in El Salvador that supports the hospital San Juan de Dios. Infant cribs, infant monitors, and other pediatric supplies were sent. Also the church had collected sewing machines, fabrics, and many other useful items. A team from Highland Presbyterian assisted with the loading of the container, and it turned into a very fun and exciting time for the church’s and our mission journey.
