We get to praise God for the arrival of the container and receipt of the goods but we also get to exercise faith that God is working through the situation. Many of the items were removed and are lost. All is not known about why but most of the commodity items such as toys, toilet paper, socks, candy, books, CDs, solar panels, and balls, were removed. We can only trust that God will place them with someone in need.
The project items such as playground slides, swings, and merry-go-round arrived as did tools, electronics, some books, Bibles, and some clothing. At least we can implement the playground improvements during our visit in January.
We are disappointed in the world but not in God….He is good, all the time.
