Thanks to the tremendous response from NCC churches, 1,406 Food Buckets were packed and shipped off to Sierra Leone the week of May 20, 2015, to help address the crisis in access to food by victims of the Ebola crisis. As we praise God that incidences of Ebola continue to decline in West Africa, we look towards our next relief shipment of school kits and agricultural equipment in August. Please begin collecting school supplies and mark you calendar now, for Saturday, August 29, 2015, a mission work day at the Mission warehouse at 3MC to prepare school kits for shipment to Liberia.
For information on what goes into a school kit and how to assemble it, please see the instructions on the UMCOR School Kit website.
We are excited to announce that our missionary Mary Zigbuo (assigned to Liberia) plans to be with us at the Mission Warehouse at 9 AM on August 29th. This will be followed by filling school kits and packing the container unit for shipping. Plan now to spend the day with your NCC Mission Team, packing school kits for Liberia. Folks over age 65 are especially encouraged to come out and help.
