Our 29:11 team pulling supplies from a variety of storage areas at Magnolia Baptist Church as we prepare to load for our April mission trip.
All the supplies have been gathered on the parking lot at Magnolia Baptist and the loading team is breaking for lunch before we begin loading our trailer and rental truck.
We are blessed to have saints like Roy who seek us out and volunteer their time.
Never under estimate seniors… they are the foundation of Operation 29:11.
It took the team 11 hours to load 13,000 lbs. of supplies… tomorrow morning we depart for the reservations.
Just crossed into Arizona and stopped for a minor inconvenience. We were blessed to have the tire disintegrate close to an Arizona truck inspection facility… lots of flat asphalt.
How much space will 13,000 lbs. of supplies consume?
The unloading process begins
Bo, Rich and Doug are three hours into the unloading process… and still have enough energy to smile.
Unloading is complete. Doug’s most important job now begins... inventory.
Bo, Jim and Rich cutting a new drainage channel for the monsoon rain water that habitually floods the warehouse. The City of Holbrook personnel provided all the tools we needed… we could not ask for better partners.
Bo rerouting the roof drainage… Bo lives in Tennessee and is a member of Native American Missions Support… one of our partners in ministry and the warehouse.
Jim lives in Yorba Linda and is a member of Wings of Faith… another of our partners in ministry and the warehouse.
The distribution process starts… Jim loads and Doug inventories supplies being loaded for the Assembly of God Church in Houck AZ.
Within hours of loading 19 families in Houck received distributions of food, cleaning products, hygiene products and children’s Bibles.
God’s provision never ceases to amaze us… where there was a cracked sink there will shortly be a new sink.
Loading the first of two loads for Sun Valley Indian School.
