We have had a good week in helping a couple organizations and in having three of our projects approved by the Area Presidency. Monday, we met the truck from Baragwanath Hospital at our warehouse to give away 144 boxes of newborn kits. The maternity department staff will give them to mothers who have nothing in which to take their babies home. I received a phone call from one of the directors the next day and she was so happy and touched that there are people who are so willing to give to help others.
While at the warehouse, we loaded the Area's VW van with quilts and school kits and took them to a shelter for street boys. (The pictures are of them.) Then we took one of the workers to a clothing store where she picked out clothes and shoes to use at the shelter. Usually the boys only have the clothes on their backs when they are brought to the shelter. The church paid about $800 dollars for these items. Next, there will be a shipment of gardening equipment and seeds delivered to them so they can grow their own food and be self-sustaining.
It is so rewarding to be part of such a great work.
