A Nigeria Bound Suitcase

The school supplies for GoodNews Christian School in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria are on the way. Kelly Jo and Odie went to at least four different stores gathering the best deals on the particular school supplies that can be used at GoodNews.

Kelly Jo packed and weighed until she had the suitcase at 50 pounds on the dot. We owned a suitcase that was nearing the end of its life so we sent the supplies in it rather than buy a new one.

We took the whole kit and caboodle to the UPS store and sure enough it was 50 pounds on the nose!

By the time they wrapped it for shipping it was a little more than 50 pounds but it was wrapped good.

It arrived safe and sound at Pastor Sam Snow's in Texas. He will be leaving for Nigeria in a few days and will deliver the supplies for us. We sent money to Bro. Snow as well to pay for our suitcase to travel as an extra piece of his luggage. Hopefully we will have pictures of the folks in Nigeria receiving the bounty. I am very thankful Bro. Snow was willing to do it.

We sure appreciate those that purposefully helped send these supplies. These things can really make a difference in the lives of these students and certainly facilitates the teaching and enhances the learning experience. Sis. Ruth and Sis. Rebecca and their staff are always very thankful to receive whatever we can deliver or send to them. May God bless you for your kindness and generosity. 

We also sent an offering to help with Sis. Ruth and Sis. Rebecca's supplies, a small offering to help with Sis. Dorcas' medical expenses, and offering for Pastor Shobanke and his church and finally an offering for a couple of the Pastors we try to support periodically. Thank you for helping us do that!

We are very anxious to return to Nigeria and our dear people there. Hopefully we will be able to go next November or December by God's grace. Bro. Shobanke tells me they are already fervently praying about it. Sounds good to me.

Thanks for reading.
