The long awaited container has arrived.  During the first week of February, we shipped a 40ft container full of ministry items to Zambia, hoping they would arrive before ministry really got up and running.  Well, it finally arrived and only took 3 months in doing so.

It was quite an ordeal trying to figure out how to get the container off of a big truck, but in the end, we hired a side-shifter truck to do the dirty work for us.  For those of you who don't know, a side-shifter is an 18 wheeler equipped with hydrolic arms which pick the container from the truck and place it on the ground.

Our workers enjoyed helping with unloading as they were able to go through and pick out some of the donated clothing for them and their children.  It took a full day, but what was packed in period of several weeks, was emptied and sorted through in about a day.

Thank you to those who helped us in this huge effort.  Specifically, we would like to thank Jamie Castles and many members from Chapin Baptist, Columbia Crossroads Church, Marvin Bozard, Margie Simmons and the volunteers of Christian Ministries International, Campus Crusade for Christ Zambia and our parents.  These were just a few of the key players involved in making this effort a reality.  Thank you, as well, to everyone else who assisted through donations.

We're so exited that it is finally here!!!
